Enter or edit measures for a raw material

NL__Duo__Edu_edns.png

When you create a raw material, by default its measure is grams. You can make more measures available for the raw material on its Measures tab. Here, you can add custom measures (such as slice) or import the measures from another similar item. If this raw material is a liquid, you can also enable volume measures (such as mL and L).

Then when you use this raw material as an ingredient in a sub recipe or recipe you'll have the option to use the custom measures you've created. (If you do not add custom measures, you'll have the standard options available such as g, kg, serve.)

To set custom measures for the raw material, on the Measures tab:

  1. Enter the name of the common measure.
  2. Enter the corresponding weight in grams.
  3. Optional: Enter a description of the measure.
  4. Click Save.

Now when you use this raw material as an ingredient in a sub recipe or recipe you'll have the option to use the custom measures you've created. (If you do not add custom measures, you'll have the standard options available such as g, kg, serve.)

Notes

Other options for measures include:

  • Default measure – Select this box to make this common measure the default (or first) response in other recipes.

To import measures from a similar item

  1. Open the raw material.
  2. On the Measures tab, click Copy measures.
  3. Search for and select a similar item.
  4. ClickSave.

Now, when you enter this raw material into sub recipes or recipes the imported measures are listed for you to select from.

To enable volume measure for liquids

To provide volume measures for a liquid raw material, such as millilitres and litres, you need to provide specific gravity information (volume conversion factor)—that is, how much does a particular volume of the liquid raw material weigh?

  1. On the Measures tab, in the Volume boxes, enter a number of millilitres (mL) and a corresponding number of grams (g).
  2. Optional: Select the Liquid checkbox. 
  3. Click Save.

Now, when you enter this raw material into sub recipes or recipes the volume measures are listed for you to select from.

Tips

  • To delete a custom measure, on the measure row, click Delete, then Confirm.
