    O.M.G. the Iron Chef and Chopped and etc. tie-ins just keep on coming. I didn't like his presentation. He should stay in warehouses or basements.

    He definitely stumbled out of the blocks, but I'm willing to give him a second chance, mostly because he wasn't super annoying like some.

    This guy thinks he is 'all that'. He can go home anytime, don't like him in the least.

    When someone says they have been cooking since they were 3 years old I have to wave the BS flag. At three moms set kids up with a stool at the counter to make what my boys called concoctions. Flour, water, ketchup, mustard, koolaid, etc.

    My son was making pancakes and waffles at 3...well, he was mixing them :-) (I wouldn't let him use the stove by himself then.)

    He was definitely the "most improved" from week one. A burger with caramelized onions AND bacon? Yes, please!!!

    Sure, my sons lent a hand at some simple tasks but I would not call it cooking.

    Because you were a responsible parent--a preschooler really can't operate a stove safely. But I could buy a preschooler might be able to help mix something (though some preschoolers don't have the attention span to be much interested).
