Our Recipe Cost Calculator's Features:

Yield Percentage

Our calculator includes ingredients having adjustable yield percentage (or waste percentage), which will increase the accuracy of the cost/price calculation.

Recipe as Ingredient

Use a recipe as an ingredient on another recipe to simplify your work flow and keep things accurate without duplicating your efforts.

Ingredient Cost History

Keep track of the change of ingredients cost. The calculator will always use the latest entry, but you can see the change of ingredient cost with time.

Vendor Tracking

Track the vendor (store) of each purchase. Compare history of ingredient prices across various vendors.

Automatic Update

Any change on ingredients or recipes used as ingredients will instantly be shown on recipes that use these. Cost of these will be updated and shown in the list view.

Split into Servings

Split the cost of the recipe into servings automatically.

Measurement Converter

Use the measurement converter to switch between weight/volume in your purchases and your recipes.

Local Currency

Use different currency symbols to reflect your local business needs. You can change these in your settings. If we are missing any, let us know and we will add it to our list.

Print Recipes

Print your recipes, including the cost, ingredients, measurements and instructions for offline usage.


Complete your recipe record with notes, descriptions or instructions. These will be included on your print outs of the recipes.

Easy to Use Design

Even if you don't have certain information, never feel stuck. We designed this tool to have a work flow that can continue around missing information. Once you have the information, you can fill in the blanks.

Do more with your recipes ... introducing our Meal Planner:

Once you have some recipes in COOKKEEPBOOK, use them to do even more: Place the recipes on the Meal Planner calendar, plan ahead (ie. for catering orders) and know the exact amount of each ingredient you will need.

Here some of the features of our Meal Planner:

Calendar View

Plan your meals on a calendar with a whole months view. Multiple recipes can be added to each day. You can also print a monthly calendar view.

Scale your Recipes

Scale your recipes on your calendar by up to 10x the original recipe size. If you specified the servings in the original recipe, see the servings count change as well.

Create Shopping List

Switch the calendar to the shopping mode, and you can select a day or select a date range to create a shopping list.

Smart Shopping

The shopping list will add all ingredients together and sort them by category. It will show the required amount in the last purchase's measurement unit. It will even factor in Waste (Yield) Percentage, and add the amount needed to get the required quantity for the recipe.

Print Shopping List

Some ingredients won't need to be purchased. To skip printing them simply clicking the small printer icon in front of the ingredient listing.

Part of Standard Account

The Meal Planner is part of our free, standard COOKKEEPBOOK account.
