MacGourmet Deluxe overview

MacGourmet Deluxe is a recipe-management application that allows users to create, edit, and scale new recipes, or import recipes from their favorite websites, then share them via email, Facebook, and Twitter.

Import recipes from your favorite websites. Create, edit, and scale your recipes. Share them via email and Facebook. Break down and illustrate the steps for your recipes with images, as well as written directions. Use the Chef’s View for distraction free cooking. In addition to cooking notes, you can now build up a library of notes about beer, cheese, as well as wine. There’s a place for tasting notes, brewery, pricing - even pairings. Enhance your recipes and your notes with images. Make shopping lists from your recipes - even combine multiple lists. Plan out meals for your family or a formal dinner. Concerned about nutrition and how many calories you consume? MacGourmet Deluxe will calculate the calories and nutrition of your recipes. If you have a collection of great family recipes, creating a cookbook of them would make a great gift. Use the Cookbook Builder to do it and have a PDF of it that’s suitable for printing. Not sure what to have for dinner? Use the Ingredient search or let MacGourmet Deluxe suggest a recipe for you. Share with other MacGourmet Deluxe users - via a Mac or iOS device - when you sign up for an included, free Mariner Cloud account where you can store and sync all your information.

MacGourmet Deluxe Features:
  • Chef's view for distraction-free cooking
  • Add images to your recipes and to the steps, as well as to your Beer, Wine, and Cheese notes
  • Use the Ingredient search or let MacGourmet suggest a recipe for you
  • Free cloud account for storing and syncing on Mariner Cloud

Used to be a great product BUT it has not been capable of syncing between my iPad and computer for over a year (!) and now recipe imports from the web are also not working. Email with tech support claims they are working on the syncing problem (got the same response over a year ago...). Frankly, I am shocked to see that they are still selling the software at all since it DOES NOT FUNCTION AS ADVERTISED.

The syncing function has literally not worked for over a year. This is their solution ***We are currently experiencing a technical issue with MacGourmet Deluxe syncing and Mariner Cloud right now so syncing is not working properly with recipes with photos. Our developers are working on the problem now and hope to have a fix soon. We apologize for the inconvenience.*** DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!

This was an outstanding program for years. But the program has not worked now for more than 1 (2?) years - with the sync problems and duplicate library entry problems described below. Mariner has been promising fixes forever, but there have been NO fixes. Really, really, really disappointing customer care. I have had to move on. (I ended up moving to Paprika, not as elegant - but it actually works)

Waste of money and time. Sync isn't working, and hasn't for over a year with no expected time for resolution. Duplicated database doubling all recipes, and with no means of comparing and de-duping them. Support has indicated that they aren't abandoning the product, likely as they are still trying to sell it to squeeze whatever revenue they can from it, but it doesn't even deliver on its basic feature set. MacGourmet Deluxe and the iOS App Store MacGourmet have been major disappointments and I've wasted enough time and money on them. Mariner Software seems to be more interested in flogging discounted software to drive revenue than producing and maintaining the products they have produced and sold.

If I could give this less than one star I would. It fails to open all the time. Support is basically non existent. You have to wait days to get a response and then the solution never works so you have to wait days to get another response. I have had this software for 9 months and have only been able to use it intermittently. Awful. $49.95 that I will never get back.

How do I get the MacGourmet app on my phone to work with the MacGourmet Deluxe? Can't pull up a recipe to get ingredients when I am out.

I really like MacGourmet for my laptop. But the linking between my phone and lap top is terrible. I have sent an email to no response. I truly wish they could fix the problem to make it a complete. People plan menus when they are out and need to buy ingredients.

Synch hasn’t worked in months. They refuse to give updates or tell users when the software will work as advertised. Apparently, they continue to sell the product without disclosing the fact that it is not working.

Have had macgourmet for a year or so. Best recipe app out there. I have about 500 recipes that I can keep at my fingertips. Gives me nutritional info on whatever I am making among quite a few other things. Excellent app..

The latest update is absolute garbage. I lost my database or it fails to function because their cloud server database has been down for over a month!!!!! All my hard earned family recipes are not exportable or accessible. Support is atrocious. I'm waiting over 2 weeks for a reply. I think the company is going to go out of business. DON"T BUY. I have used this program for over 5 years and it was great up until it wasn't. This is a disaster to lose your information.

Nice while you have it but wait till you change your computer or upgrade your system. No support and the darn program won't work. I have lost my massive collection of recipes that are sitting in a database but cannot be imported! Will the company help?.....nope. Would avoid this trash unless you are planning to have the same computer for the rest of your life.

Great app that keeps everything organized - integrates well with the iOS app through a cloud account. Could use some more website importers but even unsupported sites import pretty easily.

For Web_8 below, who queries why Mariner Software (since being sold) now requires users to sync through their servers, I strongly suspect the answer lies in my review below. YOU are now the product. Data-mined by four score or more advertising monetisers, partnered with Mariner Software, tracking and profiling you for onsale.

Functional for its purpose, but Adware which verges on Malware. Check your firewall. Simply launching the program when connected to the internet will immediately connect the user to close on 100 (yes ONE HUNDRED) monetising advertising, tagging and tracking servers. A sample of the first 15: exelator.com scanscout.com dynamicyield.com mathtag.com infolinks.com mediavoice.com viglink.com saymedia.com hotjar.com content.ad crwdcntrl.net supert.ag kargo.com eyeviewads.com gwallet.com I suggest anyone considering using this software install LittleSnitch, HandsOff, or something similar (or have some who knows what they are doing do it for you), and block those puppies. I paid for a product. To database my recipes. I did not pay for Mariner Software to be renting me out as a live product to four score and more advertisers, taggers and trackers every time I go online. Simply disgusting Mariner Software.

I'm sorry others are having such difficultly with the program and with Mariner Software. I can't comment on those. The program works very well for me and I see them continually working to keep the import function working for website that change their format/implementation. I find it easy to use and a great way to keep and rework recipes. I find most recipes are poorly written (even if the dish is excellent), and I like being able to import and then fix recipes I like.

I've been using MacGourmet for years on both iOS and Mac. On the plus side, it works. It's where I put all recipes,whether they's my own or from magazines or online. It's a good, very usable repository.

But on the negative side, it's been very buggy in the past and the company often rarely responds to bug reports. Still, I am able workaround most issues, so the program remains useful enough that I don't consider switching.

Latest version has made recipe import for sites work again, which was my main grumble.

So overall, it gets a B+ for utility, a D for support.
