Cook's Illustrated Magazine

Unlike some glossy cooking magazines, our magazine is staffed with cooks and editors not food stylists. Our 2,500 square foot test kitchen — the same kitchen in which we film our public television show, America's Test Kitchen—has three dozen full-time test cooks whose 9 to 5 job (well maybe 7 to 6 on baking days) is testing and retesting recipes 20, 30, sometimes 50 times until we can offer our readers a recipe we're confident will work every time. (Of course you have to promise to follow our recipes for those foolproof results.) We also offer ratings and reviews of cookware and kitchen equipment to inform you how different models compare and compete so that you can shop smart.
