Does Modernmeal work on a personal computer (PC) and Mac?

Heck yeah, it sure does! If you use a PC we recommend downloading Google Chrome as your web browser. Internet explorer comes as the default on your computer but Modernmeal and just about every website works much better on Google Chrome. Modernmeal is also optimized for the Safari and Firefox browsers as well.

Is there a mobile & tablet app?

Modernmeal is a responsive website meaning it will adjust based on the device you are using so there is no need for a mobile or tablet app. It will work from your desktop computer, mobile phone or tablet. However, certain pages will have slightly limited functionality when using Modernmeal from your phone.

How much does it cost?

Starting January 2016 we will offer a Lite Plan that costs $11/mo. or you can receive a discounted rate of $9/mo. if you purchase a full year subscription. Our Culinary Pro plan starts at $29/mo. or $24/mo. for an annual subscription. If you are a member of the United States Personal Chef Association you will receive a discount off both the monthly and annual plans.

Please check with your organization to see if they are partnered with Modernmeal so you can receive a discount. If we are not partners already have your membership director reach out to us at support@modernmeal.com.

Is there a limit on the number of customers (Culinary Pro Plan only) or recipes I can import?

No way, that would just be rude.
