Support for importing Pepperplate .db files has been added as of iOS version 3.4.2, Android version 3.1.3, and Windows version 3.0.13.
How you retrieve your Pepperplate database file:
The easiest way to retrieve your Pepperplate database file is through their Windows app. This will of course require a Windows computer.
- Open the Microsoft Store app on your computer, and then search for and install the Pepperplate app.
- Open Pepperplate and login to your account. Let the app sync until all of your recipes have been downloaded.
- Open File Explorer and navigate to: C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Packages\Pepperplate.RecipeMenuCookingPlanner_cs1tv1brcfn9t\LocalState\ (the Pepperplate folder name may vary slightly)
- Locate recipes_2.db. This is the Pepperplate database file.
If you do not have access to a Windows computer, it is possible to retrieve the recipes_2.db file by extracting it from an iOS backup using a backup extractor tool or from an Android device using adb. However, this is a much more complicated process and is beyond the scope of this article. It's probably going to be a lot easier to just ask a friend with a Windows computer to help you out.
How to import your Pepperplate .db file into Paprika:
Windows: This is the easiest. In Paprika, go to File -> Import and then select the recipes_2.db file you located earlier.
Android/iOS: You will need to copy the recipes_2.db file somewhere on your device so it can be read by Paprika. Then you can go to Paprika's Settings -> Import Recipes and select the file for import.
