An extremely odd find on eBay - 1 July 2007. The back of the box says...

Will you be King of the Iron Chef? Allez Cuisine!

7 Dec 2009 - the worst attempt at Iron Chef merchandising ripoffs... "MADAME ALEXANDER 8" IRON CHEF DOLL" on eBay.

For only $9.99 (starting bid) plus $26.50 international shipping, you can win a precious doll (who bears no resemblance to anything related to Iron Chef) with -and this is the genius - a bloody WOODEN SPOON! Hence the "Iron Chef Doll". A rare treat for any idiot with a Paypal account and no brain.


The only reasonable offer I could think of was biologically impossibly, or at least incredibly uncomfortable.

And some more, in case you didn't have enough already...

Iron Chef Sakai's Royal Kona (Coffee for Royalty)
Chosen as his restaurant's signature coffee, it is a rich and smooth 10% Kona Coffee Blend Vienna roast.


Found on eBay, the description was: "This game is a Japanese Import Iron Chef Kitchen Stadium Tour multimedia disk for the Sega Saturn System. This multimedia disk contains chef profiles, introductions to various dishes and actual video clips from the famous Iron Chef TV show. This disk was released in very limited quantities and has become a highly sought after collector's item."

Gourmet Iron Chef Sauces...
I wonder how kosher they are

A sumptuously-printed set of 4 Iron Chef books -The Battle of Iron Chef published by Fuji - in Japanese. Sadly now out of print. I have bought volume 2 via Amazon and now search for the elusive others. Please let me know if you see them around. They are as rare as Nakamura victories. A recent sighting on eBay saw the set going for $80 a volume... a little rich for my blood. If you have seen them please let me know.

Can you collect the full set of Iron Chef trading cards?
All the kids in primary school are dying to get the rare one showing Sakai being attacked by a squid.

Iron Chefs Sakai and Chen

Relaxed Iron Chefs show the weapons used after Chen rescued Sakai from the squid.

Thanks to Jeffrey for pointing out the goodies at (now defunct - 2015)
