I can't have been the only boy in the mid 1960's to melt over their Christmas present when they were four. My father was NOT amused when my beloved aunt gave this to me.

This was my birthday gift from my late mother, when I turned 5. Again, my Dad was not a happy guy. However, many years later, he would call and beg me to bake for him. The first thing I ever made in my Easy Bake Oven was cookies. Chocolate Chip. They had little packs of mix and a tiny little red bowl and measuring/stirring spoon that came with the Oven.

Baking with a 100-watt bulb...

My sister had the Suzy Homemaker oven but I only remember her using it like once or twice. I think once the couple of little cake mixes that came with it were gone, it simply became a prop for her dolls. My parents were sort of bad about getting us toys that required consumable supplies but then not replenishing them when the starter supply ran out. It's kind of hard to make things with your Thingmaker when you don't have any Goop. I recall being kind of disappointed with what came out of Suzy Homemaker oven--brownies with very little flavor and even less texture. Then as now, the idea of using a 100-watt light bulb as a heat source seemed kind of silly to me and Lord knows what kind of toxic fumes were released as the plastic was warmed up. Frankly, it's a wonder the plastic didn't melt from the heat of the bulb.

I learned to bake in a real oven.

I still have the burn scars to prove it :P

I learned to cook with real machines-those Eazy-Bake and Suzy Homemaker machines are cool!!!!Or should I say HOT!!!!Good that you could cook real food with these-but I would have to guess in small amounts.Never used any of these.They do show these on the YouTube channel "Lucky Penny Store" LPS Dave gives good demos of these machines-including the SH washer.
