Amazon habitually mixes reviews for the print edition of a book in with the reviews for the kindle version, in order to give the appearance of a high rating for the kindle version. This is a classic cookbook that should be in every cook's library, but NOT in the kindle edition. If you've had the misfortune to buy this edition, I strongly encourage you to return it and get a refund - which you can do by selecting that option from the list that will appear when you go into your list of kindle books in the "manage your devices" section. Click on the selection box for the book in question, and then select "return for refund." Now - here's why you should take the trouble to return the book. EVERY SINGLE PAGE contains the type of nonsense that I've included here (and which I have copied exactly as it appears in the kindle edition):

Prfsiticnt of i/t Boston (!roo]ftinfl=<Scijool,

y^ cup butter y^ cup boiling water

There is not a page in the book that is completely readable, and not a single recipe that isn't full of irrelevant symbols instead of actual directions and amounts. You will not be able to make a single recipe in the book and, in many cases, will be unable to even tell what the recipe is for. Amazon has abrogated their duty to ensure that the products they sell meet any standard at all. This is their responsibility, as the vendor, and is not the responsibility of the buyer who purchases in good faith.

Contains over 400 recipes. This is my go-to cookbook. I love it because I can read several recipes and choose ingredients from among them. Example, the sweet potatoes, I don't add milk or orange juice, nor salt or butter, but do add nutmeg, allspice,
cinnamon and candied ginger plus vanilla and Stroh rum for the moisture. My family loves it.

This edition is very close to the one we grew up with. At thirty bucks, a little more than I planned to pay, but worth it for the joy it brought, and, I am told, it is in excellent condition. Favorite recipes are the shaker jar waffles and the 8 inch square sour cream chocolate cake. Just terrific food prepared with common ingredients, predating the onslaught of convenience food cookbooks.

If you want to cook and bake like your mother, grandmother, and great grandmother did than you will want this book. I doubt the previous reviewer even made any of the recipes. My family has always used this book and has turned out he best pies and baked beans you could imagine. This is a famous cookbook.

I lost this cookbook when my newly married daughter took it with the usual "I'll bring it back Mom!" That was 16 years ago and I have been looking for one ever since. I like the old recipes, the way it relies very little on pre-packaged, high salt, high sugar, high preservative ingredients. It takes a bit more fore thought, but the results are great. I cook on the weekends and freeze individual servings for the nights I am too tired or late getting home to cook. This book is a great resource for someone who wants to cut down on the processed foods we tend to consume these days. Try it and enjoy!

The book was in much better condition than I expected. The dust cover showed a bit of wear and tear, but the book was in great shape. I am greatly pleased with it. If you care to and could find a copy in good shape, it would be a handy reference and interesting addition to anyone's cookbook collection!

This is my cooking bible. I use it as a reference for all sorts of basic information (How long to bake a potato, how to dress a turkey....) as well as for more elaborate recipe information. This is a great basic cook-book. My dad gave me a paperback copy when I moved out, and when it fell apart, I went looking for a replacement. This edition of "Fannie Farmer" is, in my opinion, the best. It has a lot of down-to-earth information for either a new or experienced cook. You'll never starve as long as you have your Fannie Farmer!

The book uses locators rather than pages, but it has the same index as the print edition, making it very difficult to find anything. The Kindle edition's index needs to be redone with the locators.

I received this book just as it was described. I was trying to find a duplicate of a cookbook I was given by my mother-in-law years ago.. which I passed on to my son. This isn't the exact one, but it's close. Good purchase.
