This is the only cookbook I use. It's well written, entertaining and I know that if I follow the instructions given, my final product will be a success!

This is by far the most useful, helpful cookbook i have ever used. I learned to cook just by sitting down with it and reading through the descriptions of the tests they did on each recipe. If I could give it 6 stars I would.

This is one of the best cookbooks I have ever used. It's truly the 'dictionary' of cooking. Whenever I am not quite sure how I would like to prepare a cut of meat I go right to the Best Recipe and find the very best way. It's easy to use and has good illustrations...I love it! A great gift for any new cook.

We are still using 'The Best Recipe' first edition, and love it. However our son & his new bride have purchased 'The New Best Recipe' and have been immeadiatly sucsessful in all their endeavors. We have all purchased the 'Best Recipe Grilling & Barbeque Cookbook' and this past summer our backyard was the place to be for supper. These books will be enjoyed by people who love to cook and entertain, and want first rate results, the first time.

This is my go-to cookbook for everything. Some other general cookbooks may include more recipes, but the quality and thoroughness of this book's recipes is outstanding. I appreciate that the writers always describe the qualities they're hoping to achieve in each recipe (e.g., extra-chewy chocolate chip cookies). You may want different qualities, but at least you know what you're dealing with.

My job for Thanksgiving was to make everything except the turkey. My sister was using this book to cook the turkey, so I decided to follow instructions for making gravy from it also_ it was the BEST gravy ever. I decided to get it for myself for Christmas :). It explains why the ingredients work and why certain things/steps/ingredients/combinations work. I enjoy knowing the "science" of cooking, so I think it is great. It's great for beginners and experienced cooks alike.

My grandmother gave me this cookbook several years ago, and it has become my go-to guide. I have been a terrible cook for years, but by simply reading the explanations and following these recipes I have discovered several wonderful dishes I can make without hurting myself! I would imagine it would be useful even for cooks who know what they're doing, but I can only speak for cooks at my level, and for us, this book is a godsend!

Cooks Illustrated does a fabulous job of presenting great cooking tips and easy to follow recipes. They have a wonderful variety and all of the recipes that I have tried have been a success - recipes that I want to cook over and over.

I am a person who enjoys cooking, but uses whatever I have on hand, and uses the "it looks about right" measuring method. I wasn't sure I would like this book, but it has really improved my cooking! These recipes are great for mostly easy meals, even with 2 kids. The techniques are what sets this book apart. Learning how to do things the "optimal" way really makes the food stand out, and can easily be applied to other recipes and cooking styles. Nothing in here is too fancy, but rather standard meals done amazingly well. I highly recommend this, even if you've been cooking for years!

Great book for the aspiring cook and for veterans. Many different recipes that include the failures and pitfalls of the varied tests tried on every single entry. Includes tips for kitchen equipment and techniques used in the test kitchen. I find myself going back to this book again and again, absolutely no shortage of great food in this one!

All-time, my favorite, most treasured cookbook. If I could only have one, it would be "The Best Recipe" I bought the original many years ago, and spending ~$30 on a book was a serious splurge for me. It's definitely been worth every penny. I read, use and reference "The Best Recipe" the most of any of my cookbooks. It has helped me become a better cook and I've enjoyed making many, many recipes from its pages. One of the best and most unique features of this book is the write up (typical of America's Test Kitchens) which explains how the team arrived at the ingredients and methods used in any particular recipe. As a beginning cook, this book helped teach me a number of different techniques and methods. Now with more experience (and the glut of recipes easily available on the internet), I often read "The Best Recipe" first, and then apply their findings to other recipes that I'm trying out. I've given this as a gift to cooks of all experience levels, and it's always greatly appreciated.

This book is great, especially if you want to know the absolute best ingredients to use (ie full fat vs. low fat vs. fat free sour cream) and how different ingredients will change the taste and texture of the dish. My only real complaint is that there are not more illustrations, and that it doesn't tell you at the beginning of the recipe how long it will take to prepare and cook.

This has long been my favorite cookbook for everyday use as well as for gift giving for birthdays, weddings, and bridal showers. It truly has the best recipies for everything from chocolate chip cookies, to beef stew, to apple pie. Very easy to read, follow, and use for a beginning cook or an accomplished home chef. A great book!
