Fantastic!  Jinglebellz61  5 star

I recently started cooking for the family since our work schedules have gotten ridiculous. This is a great way to plan and try recipes, make my shopping list and have the recipes handy as I cook.


So DELICIOUS!!!!  SuzieQB2  5 star

I have never come by a bad recipe with this app. Everyone I have made is easy and satisfying! My go to app for new ideas.


Not good tech support & lots of bugs  Bev9902  2 star

I used the free version of this app for a year before subscribing & should have just given up & switched to a new app. Once you have added a recipe to your file, you can NEVER delete it. I somehow added (imported) the same recipe 3 times and can't get rid of any of them. When I called tech support I was told that this option would be added later. That was 2 years ago. Now more than half of my personal recipes are either duplications or recipes I've tried & now want to get rid of. This should be an easy fix. How hard can it be to add a delete option? I'm really sorry I signed up for 1 year. There have to be better recipe apps available.


Great app  sjackson1983  5 star

Really love this app and I'm thinking about sharing my recipes


My favorite cooking app  SpeerChucker  5 star

I use this app at least two or three times a week. I use it mainly for my dinner plans but sometimes I use it for desert ideas.


Love Big Oven App!  mrs.topdog  5 star

Finding recipes for any ingredient is quick and easy! I highly recommend!


It's gotten worse  ldigh  1 star

I found this app about 4 or 5 years ago and LOVED the menu planner option. It was great for a busy person who cooks their family's dinner almost every night. The menu planner kept me organized and I loved how user friendly everything was. Then they re-wrote the menu planner and it's horrible! I was in touch with them about it and they promised me 3 months ago that the meal planner update is on their production map. But not soon enough as I got notification that my subscription to the Pro version will renew. I cancelled and learned that I don't even have access to the crappy menu planner. So how am I going to know when they improve the menu planner if I don't even have access to it now? I used to be a non-pro member and had access to the menu planner, but they've revamped everything and made it worse. They're only interested in getting more bloggers (that's code for more money).


Quickly became one of my favorite apps  DMaltbyGA  5 star

This app enabled me to upload all of my mom's recipes. Now I'm able to share them with friends and family easily.

Was 5 stars until recent update!  Calzonian  1 star

I have been a die hard user of big oven for about 5 years now. My favorite part was each day going through the 'recent raves' and finding new recipes to try. I was able to favorite or add it to my to 'try list' Now, that is no longer available as you have to pay for a subscription to be able to use those once free features. I will not be doing so. I have loved this app for all these years and will be sad to delete it.


Used to LOVE it  MajorMom11  1 star

I used to LOVE this app. I recommended it to several friends and used it daily for finding recipes, meal planning, and planning my shopping list. IT WAS GREAT. 5 stars, easily. But now, it's just not. They've made previously free features part of their paid Pro version, and what's left just isn't worth it. I haven't deleted it yet, but I plan to soon, since it's just not particularly useful except for searching recipes, which I can do on a number of apps, unless I want to pay $20/year. And I don't.
