      Joel Keller Decider Despite the tenuous Easy-Bake product tie-in and the sometimes-silly home cooking hacks, Easy Bake Battle: The Home Cooking Competition has enthusiastic-enough contestants and a fun returning-champion wrinkle that makes it interesting to watch. Oct 15, 2022 Full Review Andy Dehnart Reality Blurred When I tuned in to Netflix's new cooking competition Easy-Bake Battle, I was expecting a battle with—and here was my mistake—Easy-Bake Ovens, the 1960s toy oven with a lightbulb for heat.

      Afreen C The host is good and guest judges are good but the judging seems biased. Haley did not deserve to win the first two rounds. She repeated the same recipe of jalapeno and cheese for two episodes. Why didn't they call her out on that? It's also a coincidence that she had the same meal as another contestant twice! If feels like the hosts favour her and feel sorry for her. There's too much focus on her...it's weird. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/24/22 Full Review Bert B I actually enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would. With so many cooking shows around nowadays, having a cooking show for "normal" home chefs felt like a breath of fresh air. Fittingly, the challenges felt like actual real-life cooking challenges, such as cooking without certain appliances or cooking with leftovers. Sure, skill levels varied quite extensively, but each episode felt like a bunch of genuine home chefs proudly preparing the type of dishes that they would make at home. This vibe is matched by the atmosphere of the show, which is very relaxed. Even though the quality clearly isn't always quite there, the judges are realistic, constructive and try to find something positive to say about each dish. They also seem to be quite aware that they're in a low-budget, B-tier cooking show and present things a little tongue-in-cheek. As we've come to expect from Netflix, the contestants are notably diverse, but it doesn't feel annoying in this show. People's background is mainly used to explain what and why they cook, which I think is great. I would love a season 2, though there would be room for improvement if it comes to one. For starters, the show tries to give quick hacks and tips for home cooking, but they're often quite nonsensical. Instead, it would be better to focus on what the contestant are doing, since their home cooking tricks and decisions don't always get the room they should. Also, grading should be a little clearer. While it's nice that the judges are so positive, it's not ways obvious why certain people win or lose. Finally, even as a European who hasn't seen an Easy Bake Oven in his life, I was kind of bummed out that there wasn't one in the show. I was really hoping to see contestants cook in one as a challenge and a nod to the shows origin, but it never happened. Seems like a missed opportunity. Overall, the show was a worthwhile and wholesome watch. Would recommend. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/12/22 Full Review sandra s This is the worst cookery show I've ever seen. It's people making terrible deep fried Wetherspoons level food with processed sauces. My arteries started to clog up just watching this. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Good Eats H It was clear who the winner of this show was the second they came on the show. (No spoiler) but the person went to culinary school and had a clear advantage on all the other home cooks. They based this show on home cooks. Not happy with this show or the host. Hopefully they revamp that aspect and bring it back but overall this show wasn't worth the time. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 10/21/22 Full Review kristy b I really love this new show.
