That's exactly what Andrew, Rie, and Alix tried to do while attempting to whip up meals of spaghetti and meatballs, steak and mashed potatoes, and "omurice," which is omellete rice.

First, Alix sliced and diced her mini potatoes without bothering to peel them because — really?

Meanwhile, Rie got to work on her mini rice since it was going to take the longest to cook.

If you had to count, that looks like two dozen or so pieces of rice. Hope you're hungry!

For Andrew, it's mini meatball-making time! Just look at those tiny meatballs!

"I usually am not very good at making my meatballs evenly sized, but when they're this small, it's like a difference of being the same size, or three times the size.

Now they're really cookin'! Alix has her mashed potatoes bubbling, while Rie gets super fancy, by managing to add onions and carrots to her tiny portion of chicken cooking on the stove.

How'd she do that?

Andrew may or may not have cheated a tiny bit by lighting an extra flame right next to the stove.

Ya know, just to pick up the pace on the cooking of his spaghetti and meatballs.

Alix did her best to season her meat with salt and pepper, but...it's not as easy as you think, and over-seasoning is a real struggle.

Let's just say the salt to food proportion on these dishes was way off.

She also added a little milk to her potatoes and proceeded to mash, baby, mash!

"It feels like it's gonna take awhile."

The meatballs and steak were done in no time, which is the true real benefit to tiny cooking.

Pro tip: If you struggle while taking the food out of the pan with your tiny utensils, you're toast. And so is your food. Just ask Alix.

Okay so all three miniature dishes turned out looking great, and the mini kitchen did its job. But, how did it taste???
