Have all your recipes in one place
Never have to dig through old cookbooks or go through your internet history to find recipes again. Now all of your favorite recipes can live in one location. You can clip recipes from your favorite sites, upload recipes by snapping a photo, and mark existing recipes as a favorite or save to try for later. Organize recipes in folders, filter by category, view recently used folders, and easily find saved recipes.

Get inspired
Never ponder over the question: “What’s for dinner?” again. From the moment you open the app you’ll find everything from what’s popular to what your friends and family are cooking. Find any recipe you could possibly search for in no time with seasonal collections and suggested dishes, and save & share recipes in just one tap.

Plan meals
Plan ahead with the Meal Planner tool and get organized easily. Add recipes to your planner in a flash and leave the stress of deciding what to eat behind.

Manage your grocery list
Create a grocery list for yourself or share it with your household. Items are sorted by department or by recipe and can be marked off while you shop.

Reduce food waste
With the Use Up Leftovers feature, discover recipes with ingredients you already have.

Join the community
Be a part of a home cook community that loves to be in the kitchen just as much as you do. Read reviews left by others, get notified of comments or questions on recipes you’ve posted, and find other family and friends and their recipes on your home screen.

After finding this, there will be NO other!

I love this book! The recipes are for any average everyday family meals. Nothing fancy, just easy and tasty meals.
There are also meals for all pallets, health conditions and weight loss. Who would need any other cook book?
It’s like the Wikipedia of cook books.

Was a great app until recently!!

I have loved using it for quite a while until a week or so ago. Now every time I open the app it opens up the App Store to another app page...EVERY SINGLE TIME!! And multiple times, each time I go back to Big Oven it does the same thing. It won’t let me stay in Big Oven, always flicks opens the App Store!?!?!! It’s proving so frustrating as I can’t use Big Oven properly! Unless the bug is fixed soon I will be looking for a replacement!

Years of use

I've been using big oven for a couple of years now and I love it. My adult child is linked into my login and he puts suggestions in the daily planner so I don't have to decide what we eat all the time.
