Shopping list

Add ingredients to your shopping list

It's easy to add recipes to your shopping list. Open a recipe, adjust the quantities (for example 2 people), and add the ingredients to your shopping list.

Add other items

You can also add other items (toothpaste, shampoo, and so on). Open the shopping list, tap +, and start typing the name of an item. As you type, RecipeChef automatically shows you some suggestions. RecipeChef contains over 1,500 items!

Automatically sorted by category

Your shopping list is automatically sorted by category (vegetables, fruit, meat, seafood, condiments, and so on) to help you save time when shopping.

Rearrange your shopping list

You can rearrange the categories to put them in the same order as the aisles of your grocery store. For example, you can display the fruit and vegetables at the beginning of your shopping list or at the end, depending on your grocery store. This way, your shopping list will always be displayed in the correct order.

Easy to use with drag and drop

If you want to move recipes around, you can touch and hold a recipe, drag it, and drop it onto another day. You can also drag recipes to modify the order of the dishes in a meal. It's easy to rearrange recipes.

Add to shopping list

After adding recipes to the meal planner, you can add them to the shopping list. For example, you can select all the recipes for the next few days and add them in one step to your shopping list!

Increase or decrease quantities and ingredients

It's easy to increase or decrease quantities. For example, if the original recipe is a dessert for 6 people and you want to make it for 8 people, it's easy to adjust quantities. Just tap + or -. No more head scratching and no need for a calculator!

Both the ingredients and directions are updated

When you adjust the quantities, both the ingredients and the directions are automatically updated. For example, if the directions mention "Mix 2 tbsp sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon", and if you decide to double the quantities, the recipe will automatically display "Mix 4 tbsp sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon".

Convert units (cups, oz, grams, ml, and more)

You can convert recipes between metric and imperial units (cups, pounds, ounces, inches, grams, kilograms, milliliters, deciliters, and so on). For example, if you've downloaded a recipe in cups and ounces, you can convert it to ml and grams, or vice-versa. You can also convert oven temperatures to °C or °F.

Cross off ingredients and directions

You can tap ingredients and directions to cross them off as you cook. It's a great way to see which steps are already done.

Print recipes with QR codes

You can print recipes on paper. Printed recipes contain a QR code. You can open the Camera app on your phone and scan this QR code if you want to quickly display the recipe in RecipeChef. It's useful, for example, if you wish to modify the quantities or add the ingredients to your shopping list.

Import recipes from other apps
