Organize your recipes and simplify your cooking with the software trusted by home cooks and professional chefs for over 20 years
Since 1991 chefs and home cooks have looked to MasterCook as the long-term solution for storing and organizing large recipe collections. MasterCook is the only software program that stores its recipes in individual cookbooks files instead of all in a single database file.
Trouble in one file does not mean trouble for your whole collection, making MasterCook the safe and durable solution to storing your recipe collection. If you have a MasterCook.com subscription, you can sync your content to your private account as an additional backup location for your cookbooks and recipes.
MasterCook offers the best customer support in the business!
"I know there are a lot of glowing reviews for this product but my main reason for writing is because of the customer support. I had some trouble moving my cookbooks to a new computer and filled out a support request and within hours, not days but hours, had a response. I have never had a company be so customer friendly with their support. Thank you MasterCook for making dinner time healthy and stress free."
Best Recipe Program on the market. Easy to organize, add and search for recipes. Can handle large files, adjust sizes, excellent search features. I've tried many programs and this wins hands down. On top of that the customer service is top notch. I have twice had to re-download program due to computer changes (theft and new computer) and both times had the new download links within 1/2hr even though I had only the most basic information to provide. If only all companies were this easy to deal with!
