SHORT STORY lots of praise and one huge drawback.I purchased this book in January 2011 for two main reasons 1 we use our slow cooker regularly weekly , and 2 we subscribe to Cooks Illustrated magazine and web site and have come to trust and rely on them Over the past two years, I ve slow cooked my way through 21 of the 200 recipes, or 10% of the book The recipes have been almost entirely knockouts, as one would expect from the folks at CI These are not 30 second dump in a cup of ketchup SHORT STORY lots of praise and one huge drawback.I purchased this book in January 2011 for two main reasons 1 we use our slow cooker regularly weekly , and 2 we subscribe to Cooks Illustrated magazine and web site and have come to trust and rely on them Over the past two years, I ve slow cooked my way through 21 of the 200 recipes, or 10% of the book The recipes have been almost entirely knockouts, as one would expect from the folks at CI These are not 30 second dump in a cup of ketchup and a can of cream of mushroom soup type recipes If you re looking for fast food solutions, look elsewhere Or better yet, don t bother at all It s recipes like that that have given the slow cooker a bad reputation But if you appreciate good food and want to put your appliance thorough the paces to see what it can really do with good ingredients and a modest amount of time invested up front, this is the book for you along with Slow Cooker Ready Waiting by Rick Rodgers, which I highly recommend The big problem is the quality of the book itself It feels luxurious thick, heavy, waxy pages with built in bookmarks on both end leaves But don t do what I did and accidentally spill cup of coffee on the book it was early and I was in a weekday rush hadn t yet gotten my proper caffeine fix Backsplash is a normal hazard for cookbooks I didn t drop the book in the tub, folks just got it modestly wet The text washed instantly and almost entirely away from the exposed page The text is not imbued in the pages, just coated lightly onto the surface The waxy coating immediately failed and the pages that got wet quickly turned into gooey, gluey pulp Poor quality paper I expect better from the people who expect so much themselves from equipment, ingredients, and recipes I like this book so much that I m tempted to get a new copy, but I m also stubborn enough not to Perhaps a CI staff member will read this and take pity on meSuper brief notes on each recipe I ve made follow below Soups 1 Beef and Barley Soup the best Double the barley.2 Creamy Tomato Soup excellent and easy Double it.3 Black Bean Soup excellent Even better after 1 2 days.4 Ultimate Lentil Soup just okay Wouldn t make again.5 Split Pea Soup perfect Cut carrots smaller than called for.Stews 6 Chicken Gumbo tasty It s all about the roux.7 Chicken Stew with Sausage and White Beans Good Not particularly memorable.8 Fancy Pork Stew with Fennel and Prunes Superb More meat and fennel next time.9 Mexican Style Pork and Hominy Stew Okay I ve made better pozoles 10 Brazilian Black Bean and Pork Stew Fantastic Smoky Even better the next day.Braises 11 Balsamic Braised Chicken with Swiss Chard Excellent Usechard Splash a bit of balsamic when serving, as the balsamic loses some brightness when cooked 12 Kimchi Braised Chicken Thighs pretty darn good No need to defat 13 Swiss Steaks with Onions and Mushrooms Meh Watery, bland sauce Meat not very tender.14 Pork Loin with Cranberries and Orange super easy Good sauce, but pork is ultimately just a boring meat Chilis 15 Moroccan Beef Chili with Chickpeas and Raisins really flavorful, but no tooth to it Next time, use ground meat, stew meat Double it.16 New Mexican Red Pork Chili soooo good A keeper.Barbecue Favorites17 Easy Barbecued Ribs a keeper Don t short change the broiling time at end.18 Fiery Hot Wings keeper Loved the chili spiciness underlying the hot sauce Falls off the bone.Enchiladas, Tacos, and More19 Smoky Shredded Chipotle Beef Filling excellent Added a bit of tapioca to thicken Addsauce than called for to shredded meat at end.Casseroles20 Sausage Lasagna a winner Classic.On the Side21 Boston Baked Beans very nice Use less water next time Easy Note I have not yet cooked from these sections Pasta Sauces Meatballs, Meatloves, and More Eggs and Brunch Desserts Basics I hesitate to recommend this automatically to anybody else because it depends on how you view slow cooking.If you re looking for a throw everything in the pot and forget about it for the next 6 hours then this is not the book for you But if you want consistently better tasting slow cooker meals that require a littlepreparation on your part, then this is the slow cooker book to check out.I have a few slow cooker staples that I trust, but over the past few years, any time I

check out.I have a few slow cooker staples that I trust, but over the past few years, any time I would try something new, all of the meals ended up tasting the same, which is weird when beef stew tastes exactly like spaghetti sauce or chicken cacciatore.What I really like about this book is that there is always an explanation for the extra preparation requirements Usually it has something to do with taste, but it could also be that textures of certain foods are lost when everything is thrown in at once, or some other valid reason they ve done all the testing for you and sometimes describe the process The extra preparation is worth it and I d rather create a product that my husband and I won t be throwing away in three weeks because it sat untouched in the fridge after serving it the first time.I ended up purchasing this book for my ipad and it works really well for cooking I don t have to worry about staining any pages or trying to prop open the book As far as the recipes go, I ve tried many of the soups and stews with great success OMG the loaded baked potato soup , but haven t gathered the courage to try any casseroles yet I will say that they don t shy from the spicy, so if you don t like spice, maybe omit the chilies in adobo sauce that are in many of the recipes.I may have spent about 30 extra minutes mostly vegetable dicing and dishes preparing the beef stew for the crock pot yesterday, but this tired lady will be thankful tonight when I get home from work and a delicious dinner is already prepared for me I love to watch America s Test Kitchen on my local PBS station I have had many light bulb moments on how to fix many of my kitchen disasters by watching the program When I saw that America s Test Kitchen had published a Slow Cooker cookbook, I knew I

Why This Recipe Works For the first time in my slow cooker life I knew why some of my recipes did not turn out so well.The first recipe I tried was Southern Style Chicken and Dirty Rice Rice and pasta in the slow cooker have been huge disasters for me in the past I was skeptical at best I read the explanation on using instant rice versus long grain rice in the slow cooker and moved forward making the recipe I followed the recipe and found it really wasn t all that difficult Sauces in the slow cooker have always turned out too watery for me but this recipe had me start the sauce in the skillet before hand along with the browning of the sausage and vegetables and it turned out perfect I did double the recipe for my family of 5 large eaters.I was very happy with end result The extra steps made all the difference in the world So much so that I would highly recommend this cookbook to those who really dislike slow cooker food Yes, the recipes are a bitwork than your average dump and cook
