BigOven Recipe Search -- the ideal cooking and grocery store companion.


(1) Recipe Search requires Internet access from your device. (That's so we don't have to install all 170,000+ recipes, plus their images on your device!) If you are not running at full 3G speeds, the recipe and food glossary article fetching speed will be limited by your connectivity. Like Safari, BigOven's article display speed is directly related to your current connection quality and speed, which varies over time and location. If the app appears slow, be sure you've got full 3G or wifi connectivity.

(2) This app is currently FREE. We reserve the right to do modest advertising, or instead perhaps charge a modest fee for the app at some point in the future to help offset considerable server hosting costs. But we wanted to get this out there and get some feedback on whether it's useful to you.

Happy cooking from your friends in Seattle!
