I have a sentence like:

We recommend carefully consider these variations ..

Is the sentence grammatically correct? Or is using considering instead of consider better?

  • You can leave it as consider if you insert you before carefully: We recommend you carefully consider these variations. In fact, if you insert the you, it should be consider. – Jason Bassford Jan 2 at 18:11

"Recommend" is followed by an -ing verb to suggest that something would be suitable for a particular purpose. Hence, you should use considering.
