Cooklet – Take Your Recipes Online

Recipes are meant for sharing, and now an application called Cooklet is taking that idea to a whole new level. The online “culinary organizer” offers a way for amateur cooks from around the world to get together and share their best dishes. Cooklet recipes can be saved, shared, and even organized into browsable e-cookbooks. What’s more, the application also offers dozens of useful features for at-home cooks, including measurement converters, caloric information, and culinary articles that list all the steps necessary to tackle tough jobs and learn new skills.

Although users are encouraged to register for a free account with Cooklet, there are dozens of features that are accessible without even signing up. Read articles about any cooking topic imaginable, browse all the latest food and drink recipes, and even use the application’s exciting “extra” tools – including a timer, calorie estimator, and measurement converter. When you register for an account, you’ll get access to Cooklet’s forums and gain the ability to post your own recipes on the site. The application’s recipe organizer ensures you’ll never lose track of your grandmother’s favorite dish, while the “shopping assistant” automatically populates your grocery list with all the ingredients necessary to make the recipes you select.

Of course, Cooklet isn’t just an application that can be used within a web browser. Cooklet also offers a dedicated mobile version and a desktop application that makes searching for tasty recipes submitted by other users a breeze. For avid cooks looking for interesting dishes to try at home, Cooklet offers all the features a person could need or want in a culinary web-app.

Practical Uses:

  • Surprise your family with a dish they’ve never had before
  • Learn new culinary skills and cooking techniques
  • Save your recipes in a place that is easy to find
  • Share tips and advice with likeminded cooks online

Insider Tips:

  • Download the desktop app or use the mobile version of the site
  • Register for an account to use the app’s shopping list tool
  • Rate each cooking article to signify its usefulness to other users
  • Filter recipes by “inspiration” or occasion

What we liked:

  • Cooklet lets users save their own recipes on the site for safekeeping
  • Extra tools like the timer and measurement converters are helpful to any cook
  • New recipes are constantly being uploaded, whereas traditional cookbooks remains static
  • Cooklet is a great resource for ethnic dishes uploaded by cooks around the world

What we didn’t like:

  • Many recipes do not have any photos included, making it difficult to tell if the dish turned out correctly
  • Because Cooklet is still new, some features listed on the site haven’t yet been released
