About Cook’s Illustrated
Cook’s Illustrated, launched in 1993, is located just outside Boston where a team of more than three dozen test cooks, editors, and cookware specialists work in a 2,500-square-foot test kitchen. Our mission is to test recipes over and over again until we understand how and why they work and until we arrive at the “best” version of a particular recipe. The result, we hope, is the best version of a particular recipe, but we realize that only you can be the final judge of our success (or failure). As we like to say in the test kitchen, “We make the mistakes so you don’t have to.”

Along with developing recipes, our test kitchen team exhaustively tests kitchen equipment and does blind tastings of supermarket ingredients to tell home cooks which brands to buy…and which to avoid. More than one million Cook’s Illustrated readers rely on Cook’s Illustrated reviews to make smarter decisions about which cooking products and ingredient brands to buy.

Cook’s Illustrated recipes, testings, and tastings can be found in Cook’s Illustrated magazine and cookbooks, online at CooksIllustrated.com, or featured on our public television show, America’s Test Kitchen.

Great magazine terrible App

I subscribe to Cooks Illustrated. Every single time I open the d**ned app it requires me to sign in which is a pain if all I want is to do a quick check on a recipe. I am not opening the app to read the magazine. I am looking for a specific recipe. That’s why I pay for the app, OK? So I can search. Worse, this last time I can’t even find where to sign in! What the heck? Let subscribers stay signed in. Make the search bar the FIRST thing that one sees when opening the app.

No stars more appropriate

I pay for a digital subscription and there’s no way to log in through this app! How 20th century

Unable to sign in from online membership

I pay for an online membership and have a subscription of the physical magazine gifted from a family member every year. When using the the older app, I was able to sign on using my online membership. It is outrageous that I would be expected to pay another $20 to access, on this app, the content I already pay for online. I would much rather deal with an app than their clunky webpage and constant barrage of “upgrade membership” pop-ups.
