What is America's Test Kitchen?

Above: We know how frustrating it can be when things go wrong in the kitchen. That's why every single recipe in our books has been tested not once, not twice, but often as many as 20, 30, or even 40 times. And then, just to make absolutely sure, we often test our recipes using cheap cookware, mediocre stovetops, and the wrong ingredients. All of this work results, we hope, in a simple promise: Our recipes work the first time and every time.
