Editors' Review

+
This nicely designed program stores recipes and allows you to share them via e-mail. RecipeMaster's well-organized interface displays recipe categories on the left with entries displayed on the right. You'll first have to open Cookbook Manager to choose one of the two preloaded cookbooks to see recipes. You'll find five folders: Categories, Ingredients, Country, Recipes, and Favorites. A simple but effective search tool is offered. Recipes can be imported and exported in several formats and, with configuration, can be sent via e-mail. You can add or modify categories, ingredients, and units of measurement, but the program lacks features such as a meal planner or shopping-list manager commonly found in similar applications. At first, it seems as if the promised Favourite Wines, MealMaker, and Conversion features weren't included in the program, because you have to maximize the window to see those icons. Still, RecipeMaster has most of the basics down and it's offered free of charge.

"PROGRAM HAS A VIRUS!!!!"

June 11, 2010  |  By jaybeebrad

 |  Version: RecipeMaster 2.1

Pros

Do not download - virus!

Cons

Do not download - virus!

Summary

When you download and install the program, upon clicking the program file to start it up, it attempts to install/installs a known spyware/keylogger program called "ESPFull". My anti-virus fortunately blocked this.

"Not for Serious cooks"

May 01, 2010  |  By sugar_pies

 |  Version: RecipeMaster 2.1

Pros

Free and fairly straightforward

Cons

No way to add an ingredient not already on the list while typing a recipe
Not conducive to non-standard units of measure
Unattractive interface

Summary

This is probably OK for someone who doesn't take cooking very seriously. Unfortunately, the drawbacks like the ingredient list drop down menu is so limiting that it makes it pretty worthless for serious cooks or anyone who develops their own recipes.

"Virus? False positive?"

February 06, 2010  |  By Bubba2

 |  Version: RecipeMaster 2.1

Pros

Looks decent. Works OK.

Cons

Limited functions as described by others. A-Squared reports the progam .exe as a high risk virus, Virus.Win32.AutoRun.aim!IK.

Summary

CNET is usually reliable and says they test all software, so I can't imagine they would let this thru if it was a virus. Is this a false positive? Anybody have any experience with this?

"It's free but usable is another question."

December 25, 2009  |  By Classic 1957

 |  Version: RecipeMaster 2.1

Pros

The user interface is really quite nice, with drop down menus for entries.

Cons

The drop down menus are very nice but limit the usefulness because any ingredient not on the drop down list can't be entered.

Summary

I suppose it would be OK for some people but for myself, not worth the download.
