The Tasting Lab's Jack Bishop once again challenges host Christopher Kimball to live tastings and resident equipment expert Adam Ried returns to reveal the test kitchen's top recommendations for immersion blenders, multi-timers, pastry brushes, slow cookers and more.
Kimball also introduces short documentary segments about America's food history and later, shares test kitchen tips and techniques designed to make home cooking easier.
Then, resident equipment expert Adam Ried reveals his top picks for finemesh strainers. And finally, chef Erin McMurrer updates a lost recipe and shows Chris Kimball how to make the ultimate Chiffon Cake.
