89.1% Success Rate

July 23, 2007 at 3:55 am Leave a comment

After reviewing the last 17 recipes that users have added to meChef.com, it appears that my ingredient matching algorithm has successfully matched 89.1% of the ingredients. I’ll be an honest guy and not round up until its over 89.5% 🙂

Those 17 recipes had a grand total of 156 ingredients, and 139 were automatically identified. That means that when a user adds the recipe to their grocery list, those identified ingredients will automatically be combined together with other recipes that have the same ingredients.

And that is the whole point of the site – when you create your grocery lists it takes the ingredients that recipes have in common and automatically adds them together so you dont have to. Anything in your pantry is also automatically deducted so – you guessed it – you dont have to.
