Publisher Comments:

From the editors of Cook's Illustrated, our book 365 Quick Tips includes our favorite picks from thousands of techniques and shortcuts submitted by our readers over the last eight years. Inside, you will find practical tricks for peeling tomatoes, mincing garlic, and organizing your pantry, along with truly original ideas for getting the lumps out of polenta (use an immersion blender), knowing when your steamer or double boiler is out of water (add marbles to the bottom of the pot), and toasting pine nuts without burning them (use a popcorn popper). The tips are organized in alphabetical order, and each one is hand-illustrated.

What is a quick tip?

A quick tip from Cook's Illustrated will show you an easier, more efficient way to perform a kitchen task. Our tips will save you time and money, and they will improve the quality of the outcome. And, in so doing, they will put to use some common ingredients and kitchen and household appliances in surprising ways:

  • Use an egg slicer to slice mushrooms
  • Turn on a hair dryer to smooth chocolate frosting
  • Place miniature marshmallows on the ends of toothpicks to hold up the plastic wrap over a frosted cake

    Once you get to know our quick tips, you'll find them indispensable.
