Now in paper. Dedicated viewers of Alton Brown’s acclaimed Food Network show "Good Eats" know of his penchant for using unusual equipment. He has smoked a salmon in a cardboard box, roasted prime rib in a flowerpot, and used a C-clamp as a nutcracker. Brown isn’t interested in novelty, he’s just devoted to using the best—and simplest—tool for the job.
Alton Brown’s Gear For Your Kitchen offers honest, practical advice on what’s needed and what isn’t, what works and what doesn’t. For instance: You only need three knives, but they are a lifetime investment. And don’t bother with that famous countertop grill—it doesn’t get hot enough to properly sear. In his signature science-guy style, Brown begins with advice on kitchen layout and organization, then gets to the lowdown on these cooking elements: Big Things with Plugs; Pots and Pans; Sharp Things; The Tool Box; Small Things with Plugs; Storage and Containment; and Safety and Sanitation.
Gear For Your Kitchen is essential for all of Brown’s fans as well as anyone who wants a good guide to great kitchen gear. With more than 125,000 hardcover copies in print, this indispensable—and highly entertaining—book is now offered in a paperback edition that every home cook can afford.
Excellent guide to navigating the bevy of unitaskers and legitimate kitchen gear currently on the market. As usual, AB doesn't just give you a list of products and say "buy these". He gives detailed, plain-English explanations geared to both expert and novice cooks on not only the "what" but the "how" and "why" of each product. Especially appreciated by this reader is the list of manufacturers, websites, phone numbers and addresses of the products mentioned in the book.
My husband is a HUGE Alton fan. So he of course, tries to have all his kitchen gadgets. This book is so much easier than trying to watch episodes just to see what he used to make something. Thank you so much!
The book is awesome,very informative, and well written. If you are a Good Eats fan, while reading this book, you will actually be able to here Alton Brown in your head and the way he writes it, you actually start to picture his mannerisms just like he does in his show when trying to make a point or explain something. I would definitely give this book 5+ stars for overall composition and useful information. A must buy for anyone who doesn't really know what they need in the kitchen and for those that have too much in the kitchen.
This book was very informative and the writing was very easy to take in. The friendly and folksy way of Altons delivery made it a very enjoyable book to read. It progressed in a very logical and well thought out manner. I would reccomend this to anyone.
As in his show "Good Eats", Alton provides the reader with information on the "gear" that one "needs" in the kitchen to get the cooking done. I was on the road to kitchen inefficiency, but with this book as my guide, I'm on my way to actually enjoying working in an efficient and fun kitchen.
