Cookin' is yellowish, spherical being. It has a chef's hat, red, Kirby-like feet and a big bottom jaw. In its gloved hand, it holds a red frying pan with a silver interior.
Cookin' throws its frying pan like a frisbee as an attack. If the pan hits Kirby, it will catch him and bring him back to Cookin’, who will then cook, toss, and flip him. This attack resembles Chef Kawasaki's cooking pan move.
Whenever Cookin' appears, other enemies are generally also around to make sure that the Cook ability can be used effectively. Once Cookin' is defeated, he will not appear again until the stage is completed and replayed, as with UFO.
