Cool app. Does what I need it to do and not much extra. Would be nice if the app could be used in portrait mode on my iPad. I'll give it 5-stars then.

Could be a 5 star app if?

The product yield 10% is not enough try up to 99% (what about tomato water at 48% yield?. You need a each cost( 1 egg ) keep it simple. I most of the time will use this app for quick cost why do I need to creat a recipe every time for instance I want to cost a single fish on the fly for a quick cost this would be a very nice addition. Think fast answers that's the point not useless data entry's

Useless. Waste of money.

The UI is messed up, but besides that, there is no way to enter the price for a specific amount you purchased such $3.49 for 12 ounce bottle so if you used 1 ounce you would have to calculate that yourself! And as another user stated there is no price history or database. Also there is nowhere to enter how many portions the recipe is for so you either have to convert it to one portion before you enter it, or calculate that after it gives the food cost for the whole recipe. Very stupid.
