Welcome, Recipe Importer!
Updated April 27, 2023: we’ve retrained the Recipe Importer algorithm to improve the success rate of matching ingredients.
We know we say we’re excited about any new feature that lands in Cronometer, but this one hits a little extra good! Why? Because we’re bringing unprecedented functionality to the table (pun intended). Which means effortless nutrition tracking for all you foodies out there experimenting in the kitchen day in and day out!
Where Effortless Entry Meets In-Depth Data
The Recipe Importer takes any recipe from any URL, from websites such as All Recipes.com or Skinny Taste.com and uploads it directly to Cronometer as your own Custom Recipe – all the ingredients, all the measurements.
But, we didn’t stop there – oh yeah, it gets better – we created the Recipe Importer to source the ingredient entries from our most comprehensive and accurate data sources which means your recipes will have full nutrient profiles. What we mean here is that you’ll know exactly which nutrients are in your Custom Recipe; every macronutrient and every micronutrient!
The more you use it, the more it learns. This feature is designed to improve over time so get to importing to make all of our nutrition tracking lives easier!
Doesn’t that sound dialled? We’re thrilled to offer a level of detail no one else can, because we always believe you should know exactly what you’re putting in your body.
How To Use It
The Recipe Importer is available to Gold Users. Not a Gold User? You can upgrade your account here.
In your web browser, navigate to the Foods then Custom Recipes tabs, click on Import Recipe and paste the URL for the recipe you’d like to import. Sometimes, it’s not a perfect match, so you can go ahead and edit the ingredients, amounts and units once the recipe has been imported. Take a look at the video below for a demonstration.
If the recipe website isn’t supported, click on ‘copy and paste the ingredients here’ to manually copy and paste the content from the recipe site.
In the mobile app, navigate to the Foods page, then click Import Recipe and paste the URL for the recipe you’d like to import. Sometimes, it’s not a perfect match, so you can go ahead and edit the ingredients, amounts and units once the recipe has been imported. Take a look at the video above for a demonstration on mobile.
