Most any chef can put together a five-star meal in a short amount of time. But can they do it from a specific set of ingredients that they didn’t pick? Chopped is a no-holds-barred cooking gauntlet.

Each episode, three chefs are given the same ingredients to spin into meals. The ingredients run the gamut from Kobe beef to gummy worms, and everything in between. Sometimes, things go awry, especially anytime anyone dares turn the ice cream machine on. But sometimes, scraps are spun into culinary gold. Whether you’re watching cooks falter or flourish, it’s as captivating as any cooking competition gets.

Here’s everything you need to know to stream Chopped.

What is Chopped?

Chopped premiered in January of 2009 on the Food Network. Since then, there have been a few spinoffs including Chopped Junior, which features younger cooks and Chopped: Canada, an international version. There have also been special episodes with specific themes like Chopped Champions, where Chopped winners compete and Chopped All-Stars, which featured Next Food Network Star contestants.

Chopped Reviews

What the critics are saying:

  • “Commentary from the judges is blunt, but not nasty and personal; and though the chefs generally come on with some kind of “I’m the winner!” bravado, all the tension on Chopped comes from the chefs battling the ticking time clock and the oddball ingredients, not each other. Speaking of those ingredients, that’s probably the most entertaining element of the show. Watching professional chefs squirm as they try to marry ground beef, wonton wrappers and bananas is mighty entertaining. Don’t be surprised if the kids start rooting around in your cabinets for odds and ends to turn into dinner, or “How could we cook this?” becomes a favored driving game.” -Joyce Slaton, Common Sense Media
