This is a wonderful reference book for a serious cook - and as a bonus includes New Yorker cartoons, all food-related. It's a terrific addition to the reference library of anyone interested in food and cooking.

The New Cooks' Catalogue Review
NICE, BUT DISAPPOINTING
I regret to say that I was disappointed by this 25th anniversary update of a venerable old classic. It seems to be chock full of information, but when you look up a specific category, remarkably few items are actually reviewed. The author states in the Introduction that many thousands of products were tested, and there was not enough room to list all of them. Granted, but there seems to have been plenty of space for tangential stories, recipes, and cartoons. I also object to the emphasis on obscure and rarely used tools; they are quite interesting, but also quite superfluous. Please note that the items are not ranked or compared in any way, nor are there specific recommendations as to what to buy (except in a couple of rare cases, and even then they do not come right out and say that you should have one of these) or what to avoid, so this book is only marginally useful as a shopping guide for kitchen tools. In this edition, they have also decided not to include prices. The stated justification for this is that the prices become out of date within weeks of publication. True, but very expensive and very inexpensive tools are listed side by side, and some indication as to their costs would be a big help, as many buying decisions will be based on price. A simple warning in the preface would have sufficed about constantly changing prices. I also find the reviews of electrical equipment to be suspect; for these, I recommend you stick to a tried and true resource, like a consumer magazine. It also lacks a beginner's list of essential kitchen tools to have. This can be a problem, as a kitchen novice might draw the conclusion, after reading this book, that many hundreds of tools are necessary kitchen basics.
Still, I greatly enjoyed going through this elegant coffee table book. I even learned a couple of things, like the $40 cooking spoon, the griddle made of green soapstone, and the vacuum pot coffee maker. I found out about the $40 price not from the book, but when I tried to buy one at a nearby kitchenware store. The most valuable part of this book is the list of recommended cookbooks at the back. At $30 or $40 a throw, there are far too many mediocre cookbooks in print today.
If you approach this book as an all-inclusive, everything-including-the-kitchen-sink encyclopedia of kitchen tools, it works. However, if you are interested in a list of basic items to equip a home kitchen or some type of buying guide, you will have to look elsewhere.

I bought one of these several years' ago and have used it many times as a reference, it is a great guide to cooking apparatus and vessels. I learned a lot about various cooking tools and so have recently bought another one to give to some friends. An excellent guide to learn how what is the best utensil or vessel for a particular cooking need.

Great reference for product designers who are new to cookware!
  • Dominator
I could thumb through it all day.
  • WinDImmortaL
Great Book with lots of great information. Hard to find a better deal.
  • Vishura
I liked the book , It was very knowledgible and very clean, but it wasn't what I am looking for. I"m looking for something with information on old kitchen utensils.I"ll keep looking until I find what I'm looking for. Thank You so much.
.....but more of an encyclopedia. This is a good book if you don't know what a certain kitchen tool does or would like a breif history lesson. This not the best consumer buying guide around, but a good buy none the less.
