shopping trip quick and easy.

frequently can be added automatically when you start a new list. You
can assign items to generic locations like produce or dairy, or exact
aisle numbers. Locate items quickly using the Find feature.

collection. The detailed analysis can match similar recipes even if
they have different titles, misspelled words, or added notes. The
duplicate manager lets you choose which recipes you want to keep.
