Videos and tips on how to get 3 stars rating on every level in Overcooked. Following this will help you unlock all the achievements (except "Does not play well with others" - which simply requires you to play a versus match).
This guide is written with 2 player co-op in mind. It can also be done with 3-4 players, but I would not recommend trying it single player.
I hope this helps, feel free to ask anything in the comments and I will get back to you asap.

General advice
  • Overcooked isn’t easy. Be prepared to make mistakes and try more than once. But also remember, you can make some mistakes and still get 3 stars, as you will see in the videos.
  • Communication is key. Lots of things will be going on at once so make sure you talk to your partner. This is a team game, when things get crazy, help each other out.
  • Have a game plan. Know the design of the map, the gimmicks involved, and where all your ingredients, cooking, cleaning, and cutting stations are.
  • Learn to prioritize. This may sound obvious but maybe it isn’t. Finish the orders that come first. You get a – 10 coin penalty for late orders, which could be the difference between 2 stars and 3 stars. Do tasks that take longest first (usually the cooking part). For example: instead of chopping up 3 onions and then putting them in the pot, start the cooking process by immediately putting 1 chopped onion in the pot and then chopping up more.
  • Make sure you get the order right. The wrong order means a big time loss because you have to make it again. Pay attention to the ingredients.
  • Always do something. Don’t wait for things. Is your soup cooking? Good, while it’s cooking, chop up more vegetables, or prepare a plate, or clean the dishes, etc.
  • The floor is your friend. You can throw food, pots, plates on the floor with no consequence. This is a fast way to collect ingredients or create room when your work space is limited.
  • Know when to dash (and when not to). Dashing is great because it can save you a lot of time. However, it is also a great way to slip off the platform or knock back your partner. The 5 second respawn time is not worth it. Dash securely, or just walk.
  • Food takes a while to burn. You will get a warning long in advance. Don’t panic, know that you still have a little while before you need to take the food off the heat.
  • Food has to go on a plate to be served. Some levels don’t require that you clean your dishes, but some do. Make sure you clean your dirty dishes. If there is a sink, you must clean them.
  • You can stack dirty plates.

@Брунгильда for the achievement (All the Trimmings), you have to earn a 3-star rating for every level. You can do this in any order (you don't have to go through the game again). Hope this helps
Aang Mar 26, 2020 @ 1:50pm 
Please tell me, I did not fully understand the achievement of "All the Trimmings
Be awarded three stars in every kitchen "do you need to go through the entire 3-star game, or can you earn 3 stars at the same level in each location?
ready2b  [author] Mar 4, 2019 @ 4:57am 
I'm not sure, you need 74 stars to unlock stage 6-4, and you have to beat stage 6-4 to unlock the final boss. Does that help?

How many stars in total is required for final level?
ready2b  [author] Feb 3, 2019 @ 7:23am 
Thanks! I corrected 6-2 :cozyspaceengineersc:
Blix Feb 2, 2019 @ 8:27am 
Thanks for these. Video 6-2 is incorrect BTW.

I think it's the Alt key - not sure how it would work with 2 players, though. I found this useful discussion on how to play Overcooked with a keyboard , maybe this is useful to you?
