Publisher Comments:

Updated, expanded, thoroughly revised, and now in full color — the definitive guide to cooking equipment and utensils

This book offers detailed evaluations of more than a thousand items of kitchen equipment — from paring knives to grill pans to espresso machines — providing you with practical information about brands, models, size, function, and performance. Each entry is accompanied by a color photograph and includes features and tips on care and usage. Also included are sections on what to look for when purchasing, as well as recipes and sidebars by more than a hundred culinary celebrities.

Whether you are setting up a kitchen for the first time or adding to a long-standing collection, you will find The New Cooks' Catalogue an invaluable and entertaining guide to making the right selections.

Review:

"A large panel of experts — chefs and other food authorities — was involved in choosing and rating the equipment, and sidebar boxes from these experts cover a variety of culinary topics. There are also recipes from a vast array of cookbooks and appendixes on high-quality 'universal tools' (for those with disabilities) and on cookbooks. An essential reference that is also fun to browse through — there are even New Yorker cartoons for entertainment. Highly recommended." Library Journal

Review:

Sandra Miller, September 16, 2006 (view all comments by Sandra Miller)
OK, let me be up front - I don't own this book, and that is much to my chagrin. The first issue of this book, The Cook's Catalogue, lo these many years ago, changed the way I looked at cooking and how I cooked. Mind you, I was already teaching cooking classes in that first front of the education of talented home cooks, but this book taught me much I didn't know. And Burt Wolf is knowledgeable and witty, and has drawn on some of the best chefs of our time. If you arm yourself with a love of food, a copy of the Joy of Cooking, and The New Cook's Catalogue you are assured of garnering as much success as only you yourself limit yourself to in the kitchen. Be good to yourself and your loved ones, buy this book!
