Not easy to navigate

It is not fluid/easy to navigate while adding own recipes.

Not enough advertisements

Video ads and at least 10 ads per Instructions page isn’t nearly enough.

Ads on Pro Account

Updated 8/27/21 Crashes every other time I click on a recipe. Your calendar planner still stinks. As a premium user, I’m so disappointed. Really? First you take away my calendar planner and only let me access TWO WEEKS of it. I can’t see any of the recipes on my planner outside of that two week window. Now I see ads? updates 11/11/21. App crashes and/or freezes every day. I have to restart my phone to get it working again. Ads are gone though. Like others, I can’t print using the print button, in the app or in a browser. There is a workaround. Just pull up the recipe as if to print, but in your browser, not the app, then click print in the browser menu. TO THE DEVELOPER Don’t tell me to contact support. You are responding to all these dissatisfied reviews with basically no response. It’s YOUR job to contact support. YOU ARE support. Do your job dude.

Recipes to choose from!

I like to be able to look at variety of recipes to compare ingredients and cooking steps! I have found many good ones that I still use!

Doesn’t seem like they are investing in product

I’ve been using this program for a number of years and was initially very happy with it. I’ve requested changes (like the extra space between a word and the comma, but nothing ever gets corrected). It feels like they’re just cashing in but not continuing to upgrade the program anymore. I am investigating switching to Paprika.

You can find anything your heart desires to eat on this site! The recipes are well written and very easy to follow. Recommend highly for beginner or advanced cook!!

Flexible but crappy iOS app

As a recipe keeper that works across desktop and two phone oses, big oven does great. It is half decent at consolidating grocery lists, and can be used by two people at once. I appreciate that they shuttle traffic to actual food blogs. Drawbacks: - The grocery categories are often very wrong. (Eg Canned tomatoes in beverages) It’d be great if manual fixes could stick the next time the recipe gets used. - It’s too easy to add ads to the grocery list. Funny and confusing. - ingestion is very hit or miss. It’s easier on desktop. - it’s difficult to tell whether a recipe you’re viewing has been added to your list or not. The bookmark icon doesn’t change. - there’s no way within the iOS app to go to the actual blog. No link out, no “internal” browser. A fraction of the app opens up to show a sliver of the website and it’s unusable that way. I usually have to Google for the recipe within my phone browser. On android and on desktop the recipe opens up on a new window and it works much better. This is my dealbreaker.

BigOven = Fabulous Recipe Manager & Grocery shopping

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 toit and also manage outside recipes as well. I use this almost every day.
