5. Offers educational programming

From food measurements to the endless amounts of cultural fare they cook, there’s at least one new thing the whole family can learn in each episode.

The mini-chefs are often (OK, always) put under pressure, and the courage they muster to overcome their obstacles is inspiring.

7. Models innovative thinking

Recipes are literally ideas outside of the box — and the mystery boxes are always filled with bizarre items. And still these kids manage to create something easy and delicious.

8. Shows completely adorable reactions

Whether happy, sad, angry, scared, nervous, the kids go through every emotion, and their reactions are always genuine — such as crying when someone gets sent home.

9. Reveals the sunnier side of Chef Ramsay

If you’re a fan of the original MasterChef, you know the darker side of Chef Gordon Ramsay. But you won’t find any screaming or harsh words in this show — only cute cleverness.

10. Your child will want to start cooking

After watching several episodes of this show, your kid will want to help you in the kitchen more often. Trust me.
