About Us

Our Mission

Kitchen Tricks offers independent, unbiased tips and buying guides. We love cooking and care deeply about it. We’re here to help you enjoy the best food on any budget. 

How We Choose Products

Our goal is to provide you with excellent product choices for any budget. We always ensure that products are selected independently and without bias. All of our reviews are independent and unbiased and we never receive money for picking specific products.

Our Editorial Quality Standards

You’re trusting us with our recommendations and we take that responsibility seriously.  Let’s be very clear about our standards:

We never accept any kind of payment or any other compensation for our product picks. Period. We are independently owned and never chose products based on our advertisers. The same goes for how we rate products. Our choices and opinions are ours alone, we work for YOU!

Our Product Vetting Process

We select the best products based on a wide range of criteria, picked by our experts:

  • Real World Experience: Our team has years of experience with cooking, kitchen design, and food. 
  • Verified User Reviews: Authentic online user reviews are critical in getting a big-picture view of how products perform in the real world. We use proprietary systems to ensure we take only real reviews into account.
  • Real World Tests: While we cannot test every product in person, we may buy anonymous samples from different online stores to judge their quality and performance in our test kitchen. Brands are never notified of this and we never request samples directly.
  • Company Reputation: We research brands and their consumer reputation in-depth to ensure that our selections come from companies with ethical practices and high standards. This includes product warranties, customer service feedback scores, as well as social and environmental standards.
  • In-Depth Research: Every product review, guide, and recipe starts the same way – with a deep-dive into all the current research and knowledge about the topic. Our team mixes decades of combined cooking and food experience with cutting-edge research.
