Easy Bake Oven
Transcript of Easy Bake Oven
America's first working toy oven, was turquoise and had a
carrying handle and fake stove top. It was invented by designers
at Kenner Products (now a division of Hasbro). In its first year, over 500,000 lucky kids talked their parents into spending $15.95. By its fifth birthday, the Easy Bake Oven was a household name.
The new EASY-BAKE Dual-Temp Oven let you bake treats on "high" or "low."
And, once again got a fashion makeover.

What is an Easy Bake?
The Easy-Bake Oven is a working toy oven introduced by Kenner in 1963, and currently manufactured by Hasbro. The original toy used an ordinary incandescent light bulb as a heat source; current versions use a true heating element. By 1997, more than 16 million Easy-Bake Ovens (in 11 models) had been sold.
The oven comes with packets of cake mix and small round pans. (Additional mixes can be purchased separately.) After water is added to the mix in the pan, it is pushed into the oven through a slot. After cooking, the cake is pushed out through a slot in the other end.
