I grew up in the sprawl of burbs around T.O. This is one I'm very familiar with. Any non-functional item is "cooked". When I made the traditional Ontarian pilgrimage to live in Vancouver, I was surprised to hear this expression only rarely, and then from other imports from Central and Eastern Canada.
