For that matter, just sign up for the ATK website and save your money.

Woo Hoo! Thanks for this thread. I just signed up at ATK website, which I didn't know about, and I get a free trial issue of Cook's Illustrated, which I've been wanting to try.

I look forward to the magazine. Website is great too, I still like the "hard copy" of stuff - I pass them on to my daughter. Not crazy about the Country one - too big for starters.

I agree with Barbara - I don't have a laptop, so I can't sit on my front porch with a glass of wine while I read the Web site

That's true. There's a certain kind of pleasure in holding and reading hard copy. And even with a laptop, books and mags are still infinitely more portable, don't have broken links, and don't "shut down".

The website also has the magazine issues archived. . . so you can get a pdf of each issue for the annual website subscription ($20 or $25 per year).

I don't subscribe to it because I watch the PBS show and it pretty much covers it. HOWEVER, that said, if I was a novice cook, I'd absolutely want to have the magazine. I've learned a lot from it.

Ok well after seeing that it costs around the same to subscribe to the website for a year as it does for a magazine subscription, I decided to go with the website. I can get recipes from past archives, and tons of product/brand reviews.

I love the TV show and I love their cookbooks, but I do not like the magazine for some reason.

A very similar magazine (in color) in Cuisine At Home. It also does not have any ads or any non-food stuff. The recipes are excellent and each edition is packed with lots of them. Just like CI though, it is a bit on the pricey, but it is the only mag I now have a subscription to so I can splurge on it.
