Easy-Bake Oven Makeover, No Light Bulb Necessary

If you are like me you had an Easy-Bake Oven growing up.  I’m pretty sure just about every little girl since 1963 has had an Easy-Bake Oven.  Yes, the designs have changed over the years but one thing remained the same,  the 100-watt light bulb that was required to cook the food.


Well girls, the light bulb is officially gone and the design is new.

According to and article on USA Today:

Chalk it up as an unintended consequence of the federal government’s move to phase out the incandescent light bulb. The compact fluorescents that are becoming the new standard for household use are so energy efficient that they’re useless in baking a brownie — or any of the other miniature treats the Easy-Bake has been cooking up for nearly 50 years.

Initially, news of the death of the 100-watt bulb prompted rumors that the Easy-Bake might be going the same way. Instead, the toy got its 11th redesign, at the heart of which is a new heating element much like that of a traditional oven.

The new Easy-Bake Ovens heats up to 350 degrees without the use of a light bulb.

The new design resembles a real kitchen appliance, to me, it looks like a purple microwave.  The new Easy-Bake Oven retails for $49.99.

Will you be buying this for your child for Christmas?
