** The very premise of the show: mixing a CookingShow with a ScienceShow.
** In the 10th-Anniversary special, Alton explained his original idea for the show as Julia Child meets ''Mr. Wizard'' meets ''Creator/MontyPython''.

** 2002's [[ShowWithinAShow "Scrap Iron Chef"]], a hybrid parody of ''Series/IronChef'' and ''Series/ScrapyardWars'', has Alton facing off against "Chef Prairie" in a cooking competition. During the episode, both Alton and his competitor do diabolical deeds upon one another, such as stealing equipment and sabotaging the other's ingredients. Eleven years later, a cooking competition titled ''Series/CutthroatKitchen'' debuts with Alton as emcee. And, much like "Scrap Iron Chef", ''Cutthroat Kitchen'' actively encourages its contestants to sabotage each other during the course of each episode.

** In some episodes, after making a large batch of a dessert (such as chocolate mousse) Alton would half-joke that he would probably just sit down and eat the whole thing. Then come episodes like "Herbal Preservation" in Season 7 and "Live and Let Diet" in Season 13..

* {{Squick}}: The Season 12 episode "Oh My, Meat Pie" was a parody of ''SweeneyTodd''. Yes, folks, a '''''Sweeney Todd'''''-inspired episode, '''''on a cooking show.'''''

* [[ReplacementScrappy Replacement Scrappy Series]]: ''Series/CutthroatKitchen'' and even ''Series/IronChefAmerica'' to a lesser extent. Some people think Alton's hosting duties killed ''Good Eats''. It doesn't help that a few people are turned off by the sheer mean-spiritedness of ''Cutthroat Kitchen'' either.

* UnfortunateImplications: The peanut episode featured a visit from the ghost of George Washington Carver. In keeping with Dickensian tradition, he was wearing chains (made of peanuts, no less). This is a black man in the American South. Chains might not have been the wisest costuming choice.
