BigOven user reviews :
it’s a good service but the adds are too obnoxiously annoying. I understand that for the people like me who don’t use the service often enough to justify the monthly fee, the adds help keep the service profitable. Just keep the adds on the screen. Lately when a recipe is printed part of the recipe is covered by an advertisement… if you can’t read the entire recipe what is the point? makes for one useless product
I have been using BigOven for years now and can’t imagine my life without it. Highly recommended, especially if you want an easy way to organize and plan your weekly menu. I especially appreciate the multi screen…I use desktop for organizing recipes and weekly menu planning, mobile for my grocery list and in the kitchen. Love this service!
Does almost everything I want, but I would love to see filters for nutritional profiles, like low calorie, low carb, etc. Search terms sometimes go wonky: Looking for “canned tomatoes” will turn up every kind of tomato under the sun. These are nitpicks, but a major problem is that it will not sync between my laptop and my phone. I’ve spent the past few hours searching for a new recipe app just for this reason, but I can’t seem to find one that does everything that this one does.
- Hi Jennifer, we are sorry to hear about the sync issue, we can assist you further in getting it resolved by contacting us at support[at]bigoven.com thank you!
I’ve used BigOven for three years. I cannot believe how dysfunctional this app continues to be. The calendar will randomly jump around, so if you like to plan weekly meals– it’s incredibly hard to nail down the month you are on and will sometimes put you back a year ago. Even if you schedule meals for specific days they will revert back to one day. Additionally– the app will sometimes crash. I’m done trying to make something work that doesn’t.
- Oh no! We sincerely apologize for the troubles you’ve had with the app. We’d be happy to take a look into this for you, please contact us at support[at]bigoven.com. Thank you.
I have been using this app for years and love it for the most part. It definitely has some glitches – the meal planner calendar (in app) especially. Sometimes it won’t refresh until you restart. Half of the week is current and the second half shows my plan from Aug. I have to go to the calendar and select the day to get it to show. The recipe importer is a great feature, but when you have to do the quick import, all of the fields are stacked on top of each other. Out of the app, it works fine.
- Hi Crystal, thank you for your kind feedback. We are aware of this problem and are currently working on solving it. If you have any other issues please contact support[at]bigoven.com.
