Alton BrownThe title of Iron Chef is not something the Food Network takes lightly, which is why they gather only the best chefs from around the world to compete to become 'The Next Iron Chef.'

As host, commentator and all around cooking guru on 'Iron Chef America,' Alton Brown has seen it all in Kitchen Stadium. Leading the reality competition once again for season 2 (premeires Sun., Oct. 4, 9PM ET on Food Network), Brown opened up exclusively to AOL TV about what it takes to win the title. "We're looking for something very specific," Brown admits. "We're looking for people that can tell stories with their food."

(This question gets a big laugh out of him.) Lastly, I had to know -- after touting the usefulness of so many kitchen gadgets on his other hit show, 'Good Eats,' what's his favorite multi-tasking tool? (Panini, anyone?)
