KitchMe, a recipe and meal-planning website recently acquired by Coupons.com, has launched a recipe search engine and cooking assistant app. KitchMe is a web and mobile application that makes it easy for consumers to save up to 50% on their grocery bill. KitchMe gives consumers access to real-time grocery deals, then matches those savings to personalized recipes and household products. Consumers end up with a shopping list that combines the groceries they want with the best prices.
The app will lead you to printable coupons integrated into the program, showing users the coupons that are available for various items and recipes in KitchMe. Users will also be able to browse a coupon gallery, as on Coupons.com. Circular information from 200+ grocery stores across the U.S. is included as well.
In its online interface, KitchMe offers drag-and-drop meal planning, where either recipes or entire meals can be dragged onto a calendar, so you can plan meals for the day, week, month, or longer. The ingredients you need for those meals are then automatically added to your shopping list.
KitchMe currently offers thousands of recipes, but focuses only on those that are rated 4.5 stars or higher and can be prepared in 45 minutes or less, the company says. Recipes are sourced from a variety of sites, including Food.com, Food Network, and All Recipes, for example.
