Thank you for your interest in testing recipes for America’s Test Kitchen. Our recipe testers provide valuable feedback on recipes under development by ensuring that they are foolproof in home kitchens. Here’s how our recipe testing works:
- You may be emailed up to 3 recipes per month. If you aren’t interested in a particular recipe, feel free to skip it.
- We ask our testers to first make the recipe exactly as written and then fill out a brief survey. We are looking to learn if any of the instructions were confusing or unclear, whether you would make the recipe again, and if the results met your expectations. The survey takes no more than 5-10 minutes to complete.
- Our testers have two weeks to complete both the recipe and the survey. If you don’t have time within the two weeks, feel free to skip the recipe. You will still remain in our pool of testers for future recipes.
We are also looking for Test Kitchen Shoppers to check ingredient availability at their local grocery stores. We do this to ensure that the recipes we develop use ingredients that are widely available to all of our readers.
