    If you think ingenuity is dead when it comes to new cooking competition shows, think again. Netflix has yet again upped the ante for unique, food-centric programming with its latest series, Easy-Bake Battle.

    From the streamer that brought you Nailed It and Is It Cake? comes a new kind of cooking competition that mixes kitchen-savviness with nostalgia. In Easy-Bake Battle, home cooks will compete in savory and sweet challenges to create the best possible dish. The catch? They can only use an Easy-Bake-style oven.

    Like other food-obstacle competition shows, Easy-Bake Battle will set competitors up to fail and then reward them handsomely if they succeed. Each battle will be worth $25,000 and the winner will have a chance to win up to $100,000.

    Easy-Bake Battle will be hosted by Queer Eye's resident food expert, Antoni Porowski, and features judges Kristen Kish (Iron Chef) and Jacques Torres (Nailed It).

    All eight episodes of Easy-Bake Battle will be released this fall on Netflix.
