Magazines with test kitchens?

Does anyone have a list of the (U.S.) food magazines that actually have test kitchens? I.e. publications that actually test the information they report. Obviously America's Test Kitchen / Cook's Country, but what about Saveur, Intermezzo, Paula Deen, Vegetarian Times, anything like that?

      1. Food Network Magazine - which is actually the Food Network back kitchen. Eating Well Magazine. Food and Wine has a full test kitchen as well. Actually most nationally distributed magazines who cover food as well as lifestyle topics have a test kitchen.

          1. I'm wondering if we're doing ekristyn's homework for her since we all easily found this on the Magical Google Machine.

              My first thought upon reading the OP was job search.

            2. Thank you SO much to everyone who was willing to respond! And @LindaWhit, no you are not doing my homework for me :-) I'm trying to decide which magazine really provides the best information and best value for me, which IMHO totally depends on whether they actually test their information! :-)

                Sounds good, ekristyn. From a value standpoint, I don't think you can go wrong with Saveur or Cooking Light. But others might have a different opinion.

              2. Rodale Press also has a test kitchen. So Prevention, Organic Gardening, Men's Health, etc., gets nutritional analyses and recipes from there.
