ranmachen

Meanings

1.
to put on/at
(In the sense of putting something so that it's "at" something else. Like a shelf on a wall or a sticker onto a bottle.)
2.
to add
(For spices and other ingredients. A bit colloquial. Cookbooks tend to use "hinzugeben" or something similar but in normal kitchens, "ranmachen" is perfect.)
3.
to hit on somebody
("sich+Acc ranmachen an ". This is about getting closer, trying to move to first base, so it's a bit more aggressive than just "anmachen".)
