EatingWell's Test Kitchen


How We Test Recipes

Each of our recipes is thoroughly tested in the EatingWell Test Kitchen. Our goal is to provide healthy, delicious recipes that are easy for anyone to cook at home.
  • Recipes tested on average seven times each.
  • Each recipe is tested by multiple testers.
  • We test on both gas and electric stoves.
  • We use a variety of tools and techniques.
  • Testers shop major supermarkets to research availability of ingredients.
  • Testers measure active and total time to prepare each recipe.
