I just got email from MC: ebook is now available, 50% off for registered MC@H users until Jan 15th.  

 

 

We’ve transformed the award-winning Modernist Cuisine at Home into an immersive, portable eBook for your tablet, smartphone, and laptop. To celebrate, we’re offering registered owners of the print version of Modernist Cuisine at Home the opportunity to purchase a copy of the eBook companion for 50% off the $79.99 list price. That’s nearly $40 in savings!

When you’re ready to purchase the eBook, simply log in to your account at ModernistCuisine.com and click the ‘get promotional code’ button located under the icon for each print version of Modernist Cuisine at Home you registered. (Not registered yet? Here are step-by-step instructions for registering your book.)

We will e-mail you a unique, one-time-use promotional code for your 50% discount on the Modernist Cuisine at Home eBook from Inkling.com. Save that e-mail—once we’ve sent you a code, you won’t be able to retrieve it again. Then visit www.inkling.com/modernistcuisine, add the eBook to your cart, and enter the code at checkout.

I didn't get the email, so thank you for posting this. I just downloaded the ebook and installed the Inkling app. I was surprised that the download process was not intuitive to navigate. Had it not been for the 50% discount, I would have bailed.

I couldn't even get registered! Suspect it might be the iPad. May try again on the laptop.

I got errors yesterday because I couldn't remember my password. IIRC, the screen to retrieve my password only had a spot for my email address. Submitting that screen returned an error. I can't remember the message, it came up on a page all by itself. I can't remember what I finally did to fix that. Whatever it was, I finally got a screen to enter my email address and to type in some letters to prove that you're a real person. I believe the error before was because that box didn't show up. And, yes, I was working on an iPad. Then my mini-Mac. Then a Windows laptop. All had the same error.

 

Good luck. Maybe this was all on purpose so that you'll feel as though you earned that 50% off.

I doubt its on purpose.  but I recall in registering it struck me as a bit of a quirky site.

 

my browser remembers my password,  thats what saves me.

 

BTW Ive yet to get an email.  the code appeared on the page at MC, but its only been a few hours.

Made contact. Contact acknowledged. Response promised. Still waiting..... 24 hours later. Web site seems very error-prone. Surprising for a team that seems on the cutting edge of everything.

Anyone know a source where I can buy just the Kitchen Manual separate?  Mine got quite burned on the top of the stove!

I can't find a link to register on the site, is it in the book? I registered my MC set long time ago, but the site looked different then I believe

For those trying to register, look inside the back cover.  AFAIK, scanning that QR code is the only way to do it.  FYI, here's a prior thread on the subject.  Discussion of registering @Home starts at Post #25.

I went to log in and was unable to do so. On clicking on the forgotten password link, it said to check my email. An email never came. I contacted them directly using the email from the web site and have to praise them on a really prompt response.

The app is good. For those of you who have seen the CIA professional chef book app, it is done in the same manner.

Inkling on the iPad allows you to download any title that you own so, no you only have to buy it once from Inkling.

Not sure you can buy it separately.  I bought one last year on ebay for my 2nd location.  Now that the digital version is out I will probably use that more.   I hope the digital version of MC is not too far behind.
