  • BigOven = Fabulous Recipe Manager & Grocery shopping

    By Golf Doogie Golf
    My family has been using BigOven for years now as our online recipe manager as well as weekly grocery shopping list. I have tried others briefly but I keep coming back to this one. It has lots of ways to get recipes I save and also manage outside recipes as well. I use this almost every day.
  • Misleading

    By BERRY5971
    I got this app to consolidate my recipes and add more. In your description you say you can scan recipes, but no where is it mentioned you must pay additional to use it. I ordered gift cards for my daughters to download this app. I told them to look at other apps. I going back to my free app which is just as good if not better. I will add some online recipes but won’t make it my main app.

  • Only good if you “Go Pro” for $25 per year

    By DayOff53
    I started with Big Oven long ago and painstakingly added all my family recipes. Now I cannot even add notes to my own recipes without paying for the “Pro” version at $3.99 per month or $24.99 per year. Every time I use it my impression is that it has been limited in some additional way. I am quite disappointed and cannot recommend this app.
  • Ads

    We use it three or four times a week. Keep the recipes coming. Best recipe app I’ve used.
  • Ad problem

    By nosuchuser1234
    Continuous ads on the print screen.
  • Tried to cancel and got charged instead.

    By dsngury
    I’m trying to get away from big oven and thought had cancelled. BUT no one answers the phone so I could not verify the cancellation. So they charged me a pile of money despite my requests to cancel. This is one stupid operation- stay away. They don’t want to hear about your problems with them. $ 24.99 - pay me or I will have the police get involved.
  • Used to be great…not anymore

    By A. G. 0317
    I have used this app for years but now I can not even find preparation instructions. Every time I click on them I get hijacked to other sites and absolutely can not get to the instructions. I tried just printing it but that too brings up nothing but ads. I’m done. It’s more trouble than it’s worth now. Everything you touch sets off a barrage of ads.
