"This is not a must have DVD. It covers 9 recipes. Summer fruit tart, deep dish apple pie, classic white layer cake, chocolate mousse cake, corn muffins w/variations, creme brulee, classic brownies, spritz cookies, and molasses spice cookies.
We got this for the creme brulee recipe. and it looks great. We will try it soon and know it will come out fine because everything we have done from America's test kitchen does.
So it comes down to, are 9 recipes worth 11-18 dollars? Unless you need constant instruction every time you cook something, We don't think so.
Most of these recipes are available on their website or their subscription cooksillustrated website. not to mention their myriad volumes of cook books.
The equipment reviews seem to be pointless for a DVD. In 10 years none of the products will exist.
The printable recipes from your computer worked just fine from my OSX machine. which are all accessible through a HTML file that navigates well. Acrobat required to view/print recipes.
Bottom line. If they supplied more recipe content unique to the DVD and eliminated the pointless equipment reviews. this would have been a better product.
If you can get it from the other sellers for less than 5 bucks get it. But Its not worth 20"
