    I went to use the Recipe Sifter for the first time. You can't use cabbage? Am I missing something? Is it called something else? Why can't I find cabbage? I'm looking for a particular recipe I made in the past and all I can remember is it had cabbage and balsamic vinegar in it. But for some reason I can't find cabbage in the recipe sifter. Am I being blind or obtuse or something? Thanks!

    A great many of us are less than enchanted with the current incarnation of the sifter, Zee.

    Open the sifter by clicking on the orange RECIPE SIFTER link, click on FILTER BY INGREDIENT, type in cabbage. After I click on cabbage, I entered balsamic.

    Using those two ingredients, I got 33 results: http://www.food.com/recipe-finder/all?inclingre=874,769

    Hopefully, your recipe is there.

    I agree. The recipe sifter is awkward. The recipe sorting tool from Recipezaar is what made me fall in love with this site. Does anyone know why it was changed?

    Apparently, somebody in development thought it was an improvement. icon_evil.gif

    They were wrong as far as I am concerned. This is the one single change that they should have left alone. The old one worked and was easy to use. The new sifter is cumbersome and unreliable.

    I have been having trouble with the recipe sifter since Food.com did their infamous takeover of dear, beloved recipezaar.com (if anyone feels like reinventing that one, consider me a frequent visitor!!)

    If I open the sifter and sift by "ingredient" and then choose a subcategory, VERY OFTEN I can not click the check mark or nix button. AS THIS WAS MY FAVORITE feature of recipezaar, this has caused me FREQUENT bouts of near-profanity. Oh, food.com... I want to hate you, but there is yet competition for you. PLEASE PLEASE fix the stupid sifter (or better yet resurrect the old recipezaar.com FILTER) so that it actually works properly!!!!!!!!! I really do WANT to like you.

    the sifter now sucks , they probably wont change it back because, well you know . the old sifter changed as you took ingredients out this one doesnt,i typed sugar in a dessert recipe EVERY recipe had sugar it ,didnt show up AT ALL so its a useless tool ,when posting recipes i cant be sure that the recipe isnt already posted here by a different name . and you waste my time by having it . icon_evil.gif

    All I have to say is the search features, browsing (non)-capabilties now and limited browsing results etc. and on and whatever else has been changed/messed up and or blown-up has really turned me off. I have not even posted a new recipe for a while because well,..this ain't much like the easy to use site I first fell in love with. Do I still use it? Yup. Will I post recipes again? Probably. But neither will happen nearly as much as before. I've been quiet a long time and just minded my own beeswax. But wth, I'll tell you now, not all change is good. This experience over the years has been like a bugs bunny cartoon. You think yer marrying the girl of your dreams, but after the honeymoon years, she decides she alone knows what's best and you've woken up to find a pig in your bed that's kicked all your devotion aside for for a tub of commercial Ben And Jerry's and then tells you to go clean the the toilet.

    I had the same problems with the old sifter. The only think about it that was different was the "include/exclude all" feature--and that only worked correctly with "exclude."

    I don't like the current iteration of the sifter. To me, it is totally useless. I can't find recipes in my reviews (BIG PROBLEM). Not being able to find a recipe via a review I posted is a HUGE drawback. Also, I can't pick the crock-pot/slow cooker equipment because you can't select it (you can get it to show up but you can't actually SELECT it).

    I have no problem selecting crockpot or any other type of equipment. If you are unable to do so, please post in Customer Support. Give an example of a type of search you are trying to do, for example, beef stew then sift by crockpot, and also of the browser and version that you are using.

    I got around this problem by making a private cookbook called "things I've actually made" and saving every recipe I've cooked to it. icon_smile.gif

    The current recipe sifter to horrible. Bring back what we had before. Maybe it's there and I can't find it? I was looking for recipes with cabbage. I did a narrow search -> more main ingredients and I'm presented with this lengthy list I need to scroll through that is sorted by number of recipes each ingredient is found in. How useless is that? I want cabbage...under "c"...not having to wade through page after page after page carefully looking for cabbage! Never did find it.

    I see I can search for cabbage under ingredients...but this new search is so cumbersome. Yuck.

    I did a similar thing, but it's a public cookbook because I use it in the "I recommend" tag game. It's a BIG help, but we shouldn't have to use a workaround.
