MasterChef Junior - #MCJCookingSets Review and Giveaway

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
MasterChef Junior is back for a 4th season giving the best junior home cooks in America the chance to showcase their culinary abilities and passion for food through a series of delicious challenges. Each episode, host and award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay is joined by acclaimed chef Graham Elliot and newest judge Christina Tosi on the MasterChef Junior judging panel.

Season 4 returns Friday, November 6 at 8/7c on FOX. But that’s not the only thing cooking up in November! This year is the launch of the new line of MasterChef Junior Inspired Cooking Sets for kids! These tools are kid-worthy and kid-friendly, but they are not toys. They are real cooking tools that will bring the family together to cook up a MasterChef Junior-worthy masterpiece. Complete with mouth-watering recipes, they will educate kids and inspire creativity and fun for the whole family.

I've not been a devoted follower in the past but have watched a few episodes of MasterChef Junior in previous seasons.  I'm absolutely astounded by the culinary creations that come out of such young children.  The show starts out with 24 contestants that range in age from 8 to 13 and dwindles it down to one winner.  One child will be named MasterChef Junior and will receive a $100,000 prize. 
 
I was able to view a few minutes of this season's first episode.  The children were challenged to make a chef-worthy burger.  MasterChef Junior showcases the amazing culinary talents of these kids, and I'm inspired by their tenacity. 
 

Now you can recreate all the fun of Masterchef Junior the TV series at home.  The Cooking Essentials Set is available exclusively this November at Wal-Mart stores.  The set includes an apron, cutting board, mixing bowl, measuring cups, measuring spoons, spatula, spoons, tongs, and recipe cards.   The colors are orange and white, making it gender neutral.  Two of my younger nieces love this set.  I've worked with them to mix and make food with it.  The pieces are designed for a child's hands, and they are durable.  It's an actual cooking set for kids, not a toy.  Although we haven't come up with creations that are as extraordinary as the contestants on the show, we've enjoyed making our own food with the Cooking Essentials Set.
 
Win It!

One person will win a MasterChef Junior Cooking Essentials Set.

*This is a Rafflecopter giveaway open to residents of the USA.*
