1.0 out of 5 stars useless 8 Jan. 2013
By caw!
Verified Purchase
Useless to the point of bizarre. 1egg noodles = 0.38g/cm³. Make sense to you? Well, you can convert it to ounces per gallon if you prefer. That's the limit of this app. Should be rated zero. That's zero square inches to the bushel.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ingredient Conversions aren't even wrong. They make zero sense. 21 Nov. 2012
By ClayJar - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Seeing "Ingredient Conversions", I was quite interested in this app. Most of the ingredients in my recipes I specify in grams (for precision and ease of measurement), so the possibility of having conversions at hand was worth investigating. Unfortunately, the app fails completely. The term for such an abject failure is "not even wrong" -- it's not that the conversions are incorrect, but rather, "My hovercraft is full of eels."

The ingredient conversions portion of the app lets you convert from an ingredient to... a *density*? For example, if you have 1 honey, that's 1.44 grams per cubic centimeter, but if you have *10* honey, that's 14.4 grams per cubic centimeter (more dense than *lead*). I believe I speak for *anyone* who has even been in the same room as a science book when I say, "WHAT?" One "Egg yolks" is 0.04 PSI, but it only takes 2000 egg yolks to pump up my bike tires to about 80 PSI. The ingredient conversions are not simply unusable, they're complete gobbledygook.

As for the rest, the units available for conversions are pretty much the entire contents of the "Appendix U: Units" section of some obscure tome. Temperature conversion allows you to go from, say, Kelvins to degrees Reaumur? Knowing how many gills (US) 17 hectoliters measures is *so* worthwhile. The weight conversions are great for cooking, as I use centigrams (first on the list) virtually every day... or not. (For the record, one centigram of table salt is about 1/1000th of a teaspoon!) Of course, when you're making a long ton of pasta, it's got you covered there, too.

Basically, where the app very clumsily works, it throws the figurative kitchen sink at you, including every obscure and useless (in the kitchen) unit in the encyclopedia. It's a veritable kitchen junk drawer, except even that strange jar-opening-corkscrew-lid-lifter gadget or that ancient basting brush could *theoretically* be useful at some point. If it ended there, it would simply be a poorly designed and lackadaisically implemented app, but the utterly baffling "ingredient conversions" section seals the deal. The app, sadly, is dead before arrival.

2.0 out of 5 stars A nice thought, good thing its free 21 Nov. 2012
By Sam Stern - Published on Amazon.com

What an odd app! The conversions offered are to be honest rather unusual. It is difficult to even know where to start. As a cook I do not need to know about Kelvin to Celsius temperature conversions. I do not need to covert A stick of butter to the equivalent amount in cups. What would be nice is a list of how many liters are in one cup? If a recipe calls for 3/4 cup of lard how much butter should I use instead? If I don't have brown sugar but I have White how much of each is needed and how much water do I need to remove to keep the same consistency?I could go on but this app totally misses the mark.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 21 Nov. 2012
By Gregory M. Ross - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I was happy to see an app available instead of another game and a cooking app just in time for Thanksgiving was brilliant. Sadly the reviews about it not making sense are pretty accurate. For example "1 beef = how many gallons?" 1 beef could be 1 cup, 1 pound, 1 ton, etc. And 1 gallon? Is that beef liquified? This is just one example of many. I had such high hopes. It's not all bad though, as there are a few tables that look good (if accurate), and there look to be some good conversions. The app has potential, but needs some work. I'll keep the app for a while, in the hopes that they fix it up. I will modify my review as needed and will contact them with my concerns. Maybe it could end up being a good app?

That reviewer made a lot of sense..but I had the DL started...so went to open it..lol..what a bunch of hooey you have to agree to, to even get it to open! And if you don't. agree...it closes...I think the developer thinks he's a lawyer. For Pete's sake this is supposed to be a FOOD app! Get OVER yourself!! Glad it was free...I'm off to delete it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Overkill on a converter program that contains many useless measuring standards! 21 Nov. 2012
By JJCEO - Published on Amazon.com

App Use:
This app is a conversion handbook for anyone who cooks or bakes and needs to convert a recipe from European to American format or vice versa. While there are some conversions that might be useful there are others like cauliflower fluerets to LB/ft cubed that virtually have no meaning.

It just seems to me that someone digitized a set of conversion pages and used everything regardless of whether it made sense or not. I have traveled the world and never heard anyone use degrees Kelvin except in a laboratory since it is based on absolute zero or the point at which all molecular thermal motion stops. Using degrees Rankine and Reaumur is also totally abstract to cooking and baking.

There is some useful data here but it is surrounded by so many useless pieces of information that it is faster to just go to the internet and find the one piece of data you need.

Main Screen:
* Cooking Conversions
* Temperature conversions
* Weight conversions
* Butter conversions
* Ingredient conversions
* Oven temperature
* Yeast conversion
* Ingredient quantity

What I like:
Some of the conversions are useful but converting grams to long ton is not one of them.

What I don't like:
I don't care for all of the conversions that simply don't make sense in a cookbook conversion guide. Who converts to short or long tons, degrees Kelvin, cans to buckets or hectoliters?

The conversion information needs to be boiled down to the 50 to 100 most useful and commonly used conversions and get rid of all the additional scientific conversions that you will never use in a kitchen.

Summary:
While there is some minimal value, most of the conversions are not useful or they are silly. An example is hectoliter which is 422.68 cups. If you are cooking for an army and only have a 26 gallon drum to measure with then you might need this.
