Easy Bake Oven 1963-2011

LOS ANGELES TIMES

It's lights out for the traditional Easy-Bake Oven
A federal ban on the manufacture of incandescent light bulbs, the Easy-Bake Oven's longtime source of heat, kicks in next year. Hasbro plans to switch to a different heating element...

And time marches on, heh?

How stupid is this, I never really thought about light bulbs giving off heat much until I moved in with Mr. Wonderful some 18 years back. It was winter (in California) and I was cold and he said to put the lava lamp on and it'll throw off heat. My Mom and I laughed and laughed at that suggestion. But, it worked!

Wonder what they'll replace the heating element with?
It may not look like it, but at the molecular level I'm actually quite busy.

It was the fire at the Easy Bake Oven plant that caused Henrietta so much distress. "Those horrible light bulbs," she cried throwing bicarbonate of soda into the ever encroaching inferno, "how many thousands must suffer until Joseph L. Steiner is happy..."

Little did she know that in just a few short years, the nefarious plans of General Mills would bring the horrors of Play-Doh Zombies to life in a corporate take-over in 1967!


Sorry, I just couldn't help myself!
