Alton Brown8217;s Gear For Your Kitchen offers honest, practical advice on what8217;s needed and what isn8217;t, what works and what doesn8217;t. For instance: You only need three knives, but they are a lifetime investment. And don8217;t bother with that famous countertop grill8212;it doesn8217;t get hot enough to properly sear. In his signature science-guy style, Brown begins with advice on kitchen layout and organization, then gets to the lowdown on these cooking elements: Big Things with Plugs; Pots and Pans; Sharp Things; The Tool Box; Small Things with Plugs; Storage and Containment; and Safety and Sanitation.
