Created by cooks for cooks, BigOven helps you get organized and inspired — in the kitchen or on the go.
Imagine having all your recipes at the grocery store, when you see what's fresh and on sale. Or over at a friend's house, when they're asking for the recipe of that great dessert you just made. It's easy to get your recipe collection into BigOven. Get all your family favorites on your smartphone, tablet or web. You can build grocery lists quickly, access recipes at the grocery store, and bring your iPad to the kitchen countertop.
More than just a document organizer, BigOven knows it's a recipe. You can add it to a grocery list, and all the ingredients get added to your list, sorted by aisle. You can resize recipes up or down with a simple tap. You can search recipes including or excluding ingredients, convert to metric, make menus and much more.

I downloaded this app the week before I discovered I was at the grocery store without my ingredient list for Pad Thai. I had the hardest time looking through cookbooks there to help me out. I downloaded this app and looked up Pad Thai and instantly there it was! Love this!- iTunes reviewer
