Convinient App

I am in search of the best app that i can utilize for cooking and came across this. This app is very convenient and very thoughtfully developed. It has all the features somebody would look for in terms of cooking. Pantry list, shopping list, recipe keeper and meal planning, an all in one app. Another biggest feature would be lookin for recipes online. I can see its potential to a great deal.

These are few suggestions for app improvement:

1. We can add new categories in the pantry but there is no provision to edit the categories added. An edit feature will be very helpful.

2. Linking the products in the pantry to recipes will be a great addition. For example, clicking on eggplant in the pantry list shows the recipes corresponding to eggplant. Basically link the recipe search feature here.

3. When adding a new recipe, it would be very beneficial if ingredients can be linked to pantry list. That way when an ingredient is added, it can suggest from the pantry and also when you can click on the ingredient, you can retrieve the recipe.

4. Under Recipes section , there is a provision to search by ingredient name or dish name. But this returns the results from the discover section but doesn't return the recipes added by the user.

Amazing app

If you’re looking to save money this app is for you. It has all the qualities of a recipe app but it also has a way to save what you already have in your pantry so no food is wasted. I absolutely live that I can out in chicken breasts with the expiration date and Chefling will remind me to use it before it expires. And because I’ve logged all my pantry items as well as things purchased I can rest assured knowing I can use it and not be forgotten. Nothing is going it’s than forgetting you have an expensive ingredient and it expired. You can save recipes of your own or search for some new ones.

Let’s talk about planning. I set a day of the week I plan out my menu and it will remind me with a notification that today is meal planning day. Then while I search recipes it’ll populate a shopping list that I can then save and order groceries from. Then once they’ve been ordered it’ll automatically add it to my pantry with usual expiration dates. Of course you can modify those. You can also set a day that you’re planning in making the item. And if you have an echo show, it’ll show the recipes and steps.

In short, I’ve found that several weeks I didn’t have to do full in weekly shopping because I had enough already in my pantry and freezer. I’ve saved hundreds of dollars in grocery bills. Plus, this app is free.

App has great potential!!

I’m glad you fixed the deleting of expired items! Just because something is expired according to the app doesn’t mean it’s actually expired. The user may not have changed the expire by date, some of them are unbelievably short according to the app, and realistically several expired items can be extended. Maybe some sort of blank expiration date field is the better choice and let each user input that. Or a reminder to check expiration dates when adding to the pantry or something.

Next up app scanning barcode and the data that is imported for the title. Example was today I scanned a Garlic pepper mustard and it recognized the name and brand and size in the secondary description box but in the primary box it listed whipped cream and placed it under dairy. I’m not sure if these lists are user entered and stored on a group database or the developer or someone on the backend is inputting this data, but many many many have the right secondary but primary comes up wrong and it places it then in a wrong category.

Lastly I love the feature of the recipes tied with items in your house and I hope this continues to grow! 👍👍

Glad I found this app, can’t wait to see where it goes! Keep up the great work.
