I purchased the revised edition years ago as a Christmas gift for my sister and she raved about it, the next year it was my from me to me gift. This is my go to cook book. There are great explanations from the basics to advanced. This is a great book if you are looking for more than just a recipe type cook book, so many helpful hints, how tos, and pics to help the aspiring and seasoned cook.

Bought this particular cookbook because my husband saw several recipes in it that he wanted to try. Both my sisterin-law and nephew have it and recommended it. We've tried several and they were not only easy to do, but with the pictures you can see what they should look like. Of course they have more challenging recipes, we haven't yet tried any of those, but the ones we have are tasty and easy to prepare.

This cookbook has wonderful recipes with easy directions. It explains steps and has a great substitution chart. I love it so much that I bought each of my sisters one.

America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook is an exceptional culinary tome that is an absolute must-have for every household. Have this on hand at all times when cooking and preparing everything from simple soups to Crab Imperial to a scrumptious Coconut Layer Cake, and you will meet with success every time. This is not just a cookbook but a combined instruction manual and guide for the kitchen and everything that goes on there. The very first section "The Guide to Kitchen Equipment" - Cookware 101 - describes the essentials of all the latest kitchen gadgets from pots and pans to thermometers and measuring tools. In plain language, the user find out, for example, about the difference between aluminum and cast iron pans and which should be used for what. Have you ever been undecided about using wooden or plastic boards? In this section you will find out the pros and cons about both types. Read about different mixers, grills and grilling gear, how to make a foil sling for easy release of brownies, and much more. America's Test Kitchen is well-organized into 25 sections, each section clearly separated by large and visible tabs, starting with "A Guide to Kitchen Equipment", followed by "Appetizers", Salads", "Soups and Stews", and finishing with "Desserts", "Sauces and Condiments", and "Food Safety, Charts and Index". The Index is straightforward and logically organized. The recipes are easy to read and are broken down into numbered steps that make them easy to follow. All recipes also include important information, such as Serves How Many, Advance Prep Time, and How To Make Ahead. All recipes have been tested by the folks at America's Test Kitchen and are excellent. Colorful and appetizing pictures are provided for most of the recipes to give an immediate visual of the end result. And the immensely interesting Test Kitchen Tip feature - boxes highlighted in yellow - provides a plethora of additional tips and additional information that helps the user become an informed (and excellent) cook. I just bought one book each for my young adult son and daughter to provide them with the best no-nonsense reference manual/cookbook that will help them develop the culinary skills necessary to live a healthy and long life and have fun doing it!
