Like a team of kitchen MacGyvers, the test cooks of Cook's Illustrated have hacked their way through the kitchen and beyond to find innovative solutions to everyday cooking challenges. A kitchen hack is an unusual, easier, and/or better way of performing a task that often saves money and time or improves the quality of the outcome. This new book features over 1,000 of our best test kitchen-approved tips and tricks to help you face down kitchen conundrums. Need extra counter space during holiday prep? Place a baking sheet on top of a pulled-out kitchen drawer and voil ! No rolling pin to be found? Pull out a bottle of wine to flatten your pie dough. Can't get that sticky jar open? Fit a rubber band around the lid for a helpful grip. Throughout, you'll find fun and helpful illustrations that guide you every step of the way. Kitchen Hacks also features 22 "how did they do that?" recipes developed in the test kitchen, which we call recipe hacks. These include the keys to making perfect vanilla ice cream without a machine and a simple DIY recipe for eggless mayonnaise with a surprising secret ingredient. Become a more efficient and inventive cook and take your skills to the next level with our kitchen hacks--and have fun while doing it!

Lots of interesting and usable information. I highly recommend reading the book from cover to cover as there are many hidden gems (ideas) within the book.

I check out LOTS of cookbooks, but I usually just page thru the photos and dream. This book was different, so much so that I'm even thinking about buying a copy (oh my!). Filled with helpful tips, like where you should keep the milk in your fridge, and great ideas; need to fix your tea kettle? If you enjoy spending time in you kitchen experimenting, you should pick this one up today!
