Show Summary

Hosted by Ted Allen, Chopped challenges four promising chefs to turn a selection of everyday ingredients into an extraordinary three-course meal. In each episode, four chefs compete. The show is divided into three rounds; in each round, the chefs are given a basket containing between three and five unrelated ingredients, and the dish each competitor prepares must contain all of these ingredients. The competitors are also given access to a pantry and refrigerator, which is stocked with a wide variety of other ingredients. Each round is times, and the chefs must cook their dishes and plate them before the time elapses.
After each round, a rotating round of culinary judges critique the dishes based on presentation, taste and creativity. The judges then decide which chef is "chopped," and that chef is eliminated from the competition. By the Dessert round, only two chefs remain. When deciding the winner, the judges consider not only the dessert course, but the entire meal presented by each chef as a whole. The winner of the competition receives prize money, usually in the amount of $10,000.

  • Frankly Frantic Series (Chopped episode 5284 - Tuesday December 16, 2014)

    1.0
    This is an issue that has been frustrating me for some time and this episode of Chopped finally prompted me to write.

    Scott Conant is a hypocritical misogynist. He continually attacks female chefs/contestants in a very condescending obnoxious way. In this particular show he rants about the unprofessional way "Kristen" handles a fish; he claims to be "offended" and that it makes all chefs look bad.

    Meanwhile, in every show that Scott is in, he uses his knife as a fork to taste the food. This is not only unprofessional, it is bad etiquette, dangerous and puts all chefs in a bad light.

    Not sure where this resentment towards women comes from but he should seek help and should STOP PUTTING A KNIFE IN HIS MOUTH. I think it is time he resigns as a judge.

  • The Issue of the Ice cream machine!!

    7.5
    The contestants on the program CHOPPED ought to be able to rely on an ice cream machine that WORKS. It should not be held against a chef if plans have to be abandoned because this machine is so tempermental, and I for one am tired of the judges commenting while a chef is trying his/her best. The machine should either WORK, or be removed for the show and chefs informed ahead of time. What would you do if the burners didn't work, or other appliances just did not work? How would you expect the chefs to deal with that?moreless

    Please don't make these episodes anymore. Those kids talk to much with their sob stories.
  • "Waste Not" Episode

    3.0
    I love watching Chopped. I have always admired the judges for judging fairly by judging food only. Well in this particular episode I feel a chef was sent home based on her attitude. Soon after she was reprimanded she was sent home. In all fairness, I have seen worst attitudes shown toward judges. Life is life and people will be people, the whole scene was unfair. I am not saying her attitude wasn't bad but if others don't want to deal with you, leave them alone. Their attitude isn't about you anyway. I have heard worst comments on this show. The judges just ganged up on that chef because they were in the position to do so. Judge the food leave her attitude in God's hands.moreless

    The anti-Emmys have rolled out their ballot and there are plenty of dark horses but also some expected snubs.
