Ree Drummond’s Come and Get It was last year’s top selling cookbook, moving nearly 480,000 copies since since hitting shelves in October, according to Nielsen Bookscan, which tracks approximately 80% of print sales. Drummond also nabbed the #6 spot with her previous effort, 2015’s The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Dinnertime, which sold 113,000 copies in 2017. On the whole, it was another solid year for the category—cookbooks were up 8% in 2017 compared with 2016.
It was, no doubt, the year of the Instant Pot, with cookbooks devoted to the appliance snagging two spots in the top 10. The Instant Pot Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook by Laurel Randolph, and Instant Pot Miracle by the editors at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt took the #2 and #4 spots, respectively. All told, Instant Pot cookbooks in the top 10 sold nearly 470,000 copies last year.
Thug Kitchen, released in 2014, held onto a position in the top 10, landing at #3. The book has hit the list four years running— it came in at #3 in 2014, #2 in 2015, and #3 in 2016. The book sold 180,000 copies last year, and has sold more than 750,000 copies to date.
