Electronic Recipe Manager

CNET Editors' review

Tired of hearing, ""What's for dinner?"" This robust recipe-organizing program has a couple of cool features that can help better manage your cupboard as well as your recipe collection. Some issues following download were annoying, but not paralyzing: the program has a habit of popping up Read Me files without prompt, as well as repeated requests to agree to the software's licensing agreement. Once we got to the main part of the program, we were impressed with the size and scope of features. Recipes can be added, searched or printed, and each recipe has plenty of data fields to cover all required details -ingredients, preparation time, even nutritional information. Covering both food and drink, it also has a special feature that has you enter what's in the fridge and spits out a recipe with just the ingredients you have on hand. It's a great resource for bartenders in a rut, too. Overall, Electronic Recipe Manager is a useful program for a reasonable price.

    "Ancient and clumsy and U.S.-centric"

    December 1, 2011  |   By Gzornenplat

    Version: Electronic Recipe Manager 4.0

    Pros

    I can't think of anything good to say about it

    Cons

    * Terrible interface, clumsy and difficult to use
    * Only of use in the U.S.A. - one of the only 3 countries in the world not to have accepted the metric system
    * Ancient. Written in VB6 which was superseded 10 years ago

    Summary

    Don't waste your money. Don't even bother to try it.

    "Does the job quite well."

    November 2, 2009  |   By GeoffDGreen

    Version: Electronic Recipe Manager 4.0

    Pros

    OK as free software - would not pay for this though. Does what it says however...

    Cons

    Can't export data eg into Access to ensure that you have an independent back up. Clumsy interface.

    "Lacks nutrient analysis. Crude interface."

    February 2, 2006  |   By bej98

    Version: Electronic Recipe Manager 4.0

    Pros

    Competent management of text-based recipe database. Several useful (albeit quirky) methods for searching through recipes.

    Cons

    ERM cannot analyze nutrient content of recipes, so if you are controlling your diet in some fashion and need to know fat percentage, carbs, etc., this software won't do it for you. This for me was the deal-killer.

    Also, although I'm not an aesthetic type, I found the user interface to be a bit crude. Not a serious problem, but doesn't help that the software is ugly in addition to not handling a basic and necessary feature (nutrient analysis) of any recipe management tool.

    "$7.50 and easy to use! Try this one.."

    May 30, 2005  |   By cjtmom

    Version: Electronic Recipe Manager 4.0

    Pros

    The price is right, it's easy to use, easy to learn. No problems with the download. Since the price was so low I just went ahead and purchased the registration. I received a quick replay with the registration number. Contacted support with a question and received a quick response. It was deffinately worth the price. Adding new recipes from websites, etc are easy. Just highlight and click. Adding pictures is simple. No problem to do a copy and paste to share recipes from the program to a website. Give this program a try.

    Cons

    Not really an issue, but this is not as "glam" as some if the pricier programs. Also felt the manual could have had a little more information. I still feel it is a very good program and worth trying.

    "I'm Impressed So Far - This Does Everything I Need..."

    October 12, 2004  |  

    Version: Electronic Recipe Manager 4.0

    Summary

    After downloading numerous organizers for my recipes, I'm happy that I've finally picked one that actually does what it claims. Entering the recipes is really easy and there's lots of features I haven't even adventured into trying yet. The price is nice too!

    "You have to at least try this 1 feature"

    October 8, 2004  |  

    Version: Electronic Recipe Manager 4.0

    Summary

    If you like to host parties, try the cabinet search feature...it rocks! You just tell the software what ingredients (alcohol, juices, etc) and it tells you all of the drinks you can make! How cool is that!

    "Just what I was looking for."

    October 8, 2004  |  

    Version: Electronic Recipe Manager 4.0

    Summary

    As far as the interface goes, it's old school application, but that's what you get from a small company. In any case, the app works great, has awesome features, and is very fast. I really like it.
