    • BHG Test Kitchen Bays

      This is where the home economists cook and bake the recipes printed in Meredith publications. The new BHG Test Kitchens have 10 complete bays. Each has a sink, microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal, food processor, mixer, blender, under-counter refrigerator, stove, and oven.

    • More Test Kitchen Bays

      Each kitchen has a slightly different configuration to accommodate varying appliances. In total, 16 different appliance manufacturers are featured in the Test Kitchens.

    • Appliance Garage and Spice Storage

      There is space behind the cabinet to hide away small appliances when they're not in use. Also, the spice rack is just deep enough for one bottle -- so you can always find what you're looking for!

    • Sink with Built-In Cutting Board

      By far the favorite thoughtful detail of the home economists. This cutting board sits above a two-compartment sink and is flush with the countertop. Slide it over and the refuse can be swept into the sink with the disposal. Slide it the other way to wash off.

    • Work Station with Desk and Computer

      Each home economist has a work station, near to but separate from the cooking bays. Each area is equipped with a phone and computer. All the information about each recipe tested is entered into a recipe database.

    • Tasting Panel Room

      Editors and home economists gather to evaluate recipes on multiple criteria, such as taste, ease of preparation, and appearance -- to name just a few.

    • Test Kitchen's Communal Table

      This is where home economists, and a lucky other few, gather to unofficially taste the dishes that were taste paneled earlier in the day.
