Every Instance of MacGyver’s Craftiness, Compiled in One Place

Have you ever wondered in how many different episodes MacGyver has made an arc welder (answer: 3 times in episodes 6, 52, and 87)? Or perhaps you forgot about your favorite episode (season 1, episode 12) when Mac escapes via a casket that transforms into a jetski. And how many times has Mac made a diversion? In order to placate all of your MacGyver-related curiosities, we offer you MacRecipes.

You can browse by episode by clicking on any one of the boxes around MacGyver’s head, or you can browse by ingredient by clicking on the red text that appears on the right-hand side of the recipes.

A few important lessons learned: You can make a gun using a vacuum cleaner and blueberry preserves, cooking oil and furniture stuffing will do a fine job of incubating eagle eggs, and if you’re ever locked in prison, all it takes is a kite and a lightning strike to blow open the cell door.
