OK. So there is Food Network and there is the Cooking Channel. And then there are folks who really know what they are doing. I have learned so much from these folks and I'm a much better cook because of it. Of course there are some things that honestly are not worth the effort (they make EVERYTHING; very little processed stuff), but results are gooooood.

Seriously, this is not a series for those who are cooking on an instant ramen budget (fast and cheap). There are ingredients used that, while good, are either expensive or rare = you would have to use them extensively to make them worth the cost.

The tips on cooking things with an oven and stove for the same dish --> work, already tried them, but they do require spending more time and money on your energy bill.

READ THE EPISODE SUMMARIES. Some topics that they go through in an episode aren't really connected, so if you are looking for a particular tip or recipe, read the summary first, then go through the episode.

Don't miss one of the best America's Test Kitchen shows - ever - and that's saying a lot! Between Guy Crosby's explanation of the 'chemistry' of eggs, Becky's expert description and modeling of how to expertly scramble eggs, and Chris' facial expression upon eating his first bites, I realized I have been incorrectly scrambling eggs my entire life and have missed out on the unique texture and flavors that I've actually 'cooked away' using my scrambled-egg cooking method. The first 8.5-minute egg segment alone is worth the price of this show, but you also learn from Becky (the newest young ATK chef) the process for making perfect, high-rise muffins, from Adam about the best toaster-oven products and from Jack about the newest peanut butter taste-test results. I love that these shows cut the fru-fru and get right to the point without the "over-cooked" vanity from many TV personalities. ATK staff get right to the point, explain in simple terms the specific preparation steps like 'always grease down the grill rack before cooking', the cooking methods, and even why certain ingredients are so important. In this show, viewers learn the 'science' of cooking as well as steps for getting the most flavor from every dish. "Rise and Shine" will open your eyes to the simplicity of cooking and ways to harness even the most subtle flavors in any recipe.

While it isn't my favorite season, I'm still happy to have it on Amazon. I'm looking forward to next season though! I think my favorite episode was where they talked about how to cook eggs. I have found that this method is superior to the dried out eggs I have cooked in the past. I suppose you don't know what you don't know.

The episodes are informative as always . However, the quality of some of the videos is very grainy and poor even though the HD version is supposedly available.

My children and I love America's Test Kitchen! From Christopher Kimball's lively and humorous hosting to the clever and knowledgeable chefs, ATK is an entertaining and educational way to spend half an hour.
