  • Versatility

    By Owner/gambler
    This app's biggest gift to its users to me are that you can find simple good flavorful recipes or more sophisticated traditional recipes. The time and skill you have generally determines which you choose.
  • Use it daily!

    I love this app. I even bought into the pro giving me all the nutritional info for my calorie counting etc. I have enjoyed submitting recipes and the fact that I can make special notes to those that I tweak to work for me. I've used this app for 3 years and shared it with others who have also joined and enjoyed it. You can't go wrong with BigOven!
  • My kitchen thanks me!

    I am a person who loves good food. It does not need to be expensive, or complicated...just made with quality in mind. Big Oven has never failed me there. I just hit a key word like bananas, or trifles or chicken and voila! there you are. A plethora of ideas...quick or slow, all there. This site is easy to navigate as well.
  • Great app. Just take time to learn it.

    I'm always amused to read other reviews where the reviewer gives one or two stars because of some perceived slight of the program. I'm also impressed that I see more Developer responses trying to assist than on any other app I've seen. That aside, Big Oven is my "goto" recipe book. My wife and I are adventurous cooks with many varied dishes throughout the month and I never have problem finding a recipe that fits my ingredients at hand or my culinary wish of the day. When I pull down one of my regular cookbooks, it doesn't fall open to the recipe I need that day, and I don't expect Big Oven to do that, either. (Another complaint that I've seen about too many choices or hard to find recipes - it's a cookbook with thousands of choices and variations and I have to search for the right recipe, only easier than a regular cookbook because of the iPad/computer functions.) I've entered a few recipes in the old version and when I updated to PRO, they were still there. I can find new recipes based on ingredients or title and I can enter my own recipes. I give this recipe book (app) a big 5 stars - far easier than pulling down 4 or 5 cookbooks from the shelf to find something new to cook for today.
  • Used to love this app

    By Antisirch
    Not going to pay just to save some recipes. Not sure when that changed, but this used to be a great app. Very disappointed with this change. I guess the writing's been on the wall for a while - was constantly trying to get people to sign up for "pro". I guess this is how they will force people into it 😟
  • Love it

    By RobnB
    Seriously so easy to use! I love love love how I can find a recipe, add the ingredients to my list and then assign it a day on my meal plan. Perfect.
  • Great app!

    By YogurtSurprise
    My wife and I use this app to try new great recipes and keep a mutual grocery shopping list. I had an issue with the crashing on iOS, but the developers were very responsive and resolved the bug and had pushed out a new version in just a couple of days. Great app!
  • Disappointed

    By DocAU24
    This app was fantastic, I have been using it for years and now they have decided that you have to pay to store your own recipes. Will not continue to use it
