About Cook’s Illustrated
Cook’s Illustrated, launched in 1993, is located just outside Boston where a team of more than three dozen test cooks, editors, and cookware specialists work in a 2,500-square-foot test kitchen. Our mission is to test recipes over and over again until we understand how and why they work and until we arrive at the “best” version of a particular recipe. We start the process of testing each recipe with a complete lack of conviction, which means that we accept no claim, no theory, no technique, and no recipe at face value. We simply assemble as many variations as possible, test half a dozen of the most promising, and taste the results blind. We then construct our own hybrid recipe and continue to test it, varying the ingredients, techniques, and cooking times until we reach a consensus. The result, we hope, is the best version of a particular recipe, but we realize that only you can be the final judge of our success (or failure). As we like to say in the test kitchen, “We make the mistakes so you don’t have to.”

Along with developing recipes, our test kitchen team exhaustively tests kitchen equipment and does blind tastings of supermarket ingredients to tell home cooks which brands to buy…and which to avoid. More than one million Cook’s Illustrated readers rely on Cook’s Illustrated reviews to make smarter decisions about which cooking products and ingredient brands to buy.

Cook’s Illustrated recipes, testings, and tastings can be found in Cook’s Illustrated magazine and cookbooks, online at CooksIllustrated.com, or featured on our public television show, America’s Test Kitchen.

Not a Total Waste

I think this app for a mere 99 cents is not all that bad. I like the convenience of an app when I need to make something in a flash. Cooks Illustrated consistently has good recipes.


Not intuitive …

Can’t find search function on iPad version; navigation not clear. Far better to sign into Cook’s using browser.

Total ripoff. DON't bother buying this "app".

Only 50 "recipes"-- if you consider "perfect scrambled eggs", "garlic mashed potatoes", "foolproof vinaigrette", and "ultimate oven fries" recipes. This is so basic it's laughable. I will not trust Cook's Illustrated in the future.
