Recipe Finder enters the recipe portal niche this month, offering the largest collection of recipes online. The new recipe search engine offers the convenience of having more than a million recipes at one’s fingertips. With more than 700,000 images of dishes, over 4,000 ingredients, and more than 250 recipe sites as reference, Recipe Finder offers new cooks, aspiring cooks, and even seasoned chefs a one-stop shop to visit when in need of recipe ideas. Far from being a static collection of recipes, Recipe Finder is in a continuous state of flux. Recipe web sites are indexed regularly, ensuring that users will have the newest and most updated recipes that can be found online.
With cooking being an integral part of every day life, people oftentimes need all the assistance that they can get when it comes to coming up with new and creative dishes. Sometimes, it is simply a matter of finding out the best way to prepare a certain dish. Whatever the case may be, the trend is for people to go online to find the information that they need, hence the boom that recipe web sites continue to enjoy. This boom has caught the eye of venture capitalists in the tech scene who fully recognize this trend and have made sure not to pass up on this opportunity. This has resulted in the out pour of financial support for recipe web sites and portals that address the needs and wants of consumers. This, in turn, has made it possible for users to enjoy various recipe web sites and to look for even better features. Recipe Finder was born out of the recognition of this demand.
“For many people, the Internet is the go-to source for all sorts of information. Home-related activities are not exempt from this pattern. More and more, recipe portals are being used by housewives and even busy young professionals. Turn on the television, and you will find more lifestyle and cooking shows than you can count. This fact, combined with the popularity of celebrity chefs, contributes to the craving to learn more and new dishes to create in one’s own kitchen,” said Mark Saunders of Recipe Finder. “Recipe Finder aims to go one step further by offering users a single venue where they can conduct a search that will have a wide range of results, as opposed to having to visit different sites to get the same amount of results. Recipe Finder offers a rich user experience - little effort with numerous high quality results.”
The recipe search engine has an intuitive interface, making navigation and search as simple as entering the recipe name or main ingredient. For more relevant results, a search can be further refined by specifying parameters such as include/exclude ingredients, number of servings, cook time, and calorie count. Furthermore, users have the option to view the search results in text or image form, the latter being very useful in visualizing the dish.
Busy cooks who need to plan meals in advance will find the added features of Recipe Finder practical. The menu feature allows users to add dishes from the appetizer to the dessert, providing an overall picture about what will be served on the table. The calendar feature allows the creation of menus for specific days. Without a doubt, these are priceless tools for planning and organizing.
In this day and age of social media, Recipe Finder does not fail to provide sharing options. While it used to be that people shared recipes via printed cards and books, users can now share favorite recipes online via the most popular platforms such as Twitter and Facebook. The option to share them via e-mail is available, or if hard copies are necessary, the recipes may be printed.
With the launch of Recipe Finder, food enthusiasts do not have to spend countless hours scouring the web for the perfect recipe. Recipe Finder is now live with almost 1.7 million recipes ripe for the picking.
