Jordan H.   So it took me a bit to find it, but I was surprised to see that the "Easy Bake" oven is still sold!  It's a strange re-configuration (see below) of the models sold in the 1970s, but amazing to see it still in production.  Since as a kid it seemed logical that butter, sugar, and white flour combined together would be yummy (!) I routinely would steal some baking time on my sister's Easy Bake to make the final conversion.  :-)   Little did I know that years later, I would just be adding crushed pecans to the recipe to obtain those holiday 'tea cookies'.   .....and also that my fancy-pants air-fryer had more humble beginnings. ;-)

I believe the new ones are pretty toned down from the originals. I think they were a house-fire waiting to happen, if my memory of antique shows serves me well.

The easy bake ovens that I remember used a light bulb to cook with like these:

1964



Ebay Link


1973



Ebay Link


1994



Ebay Link


I never had one and neither did my kids.  

I really would not compare an air fryer to an easy bake oven as it is way more complicated and get way more hotter.

 
Ew. You guys are ugly with a capital UG. Here, maybe this tiny ad can help:
