Easy Bake Ultimate Oven Review & Giveaway

I dreamed of having an Easy Bake Oven as a child. I watched the commercials and longed to make those miniature cookies and cupcakes on my own. For some reason, I was the kid who never got one. Yeah, the one who grew up baking like there’s no tomorrow… never had an Easy Bake Oven. So sad.

The folks at Hasbro offered to send me one of their newly designed “Ultimate” Easy Bake Ovens for review. I don’t accept many offers to review products on this site, but how could I turn down an Easy Bake Oven??? So I hunted down some girls to help me test out this oven.

The oven is recommended for ages 8 and up. My beautiful and talented testers were aged 9 to 13.

I wanted to know if they could operate the oven on their own, with little assistance from an adult. The oven comes with very specific, step-by-step instructions. The girls did pretty well, but I did have to help them with a few things.

I kept trying to “open” the oven door. Turns out that it does not open. The cupcakes that we made are slid into the center of the electric oven from the side, using a spatula-like object.

In just 10 minutes, teeny tiny cupcakes are done baking. You bake 1/2 the batter first, then pop those out and bake the 2nd half.

Then you can slide the baked cupcakes into cupcake papers and top them with frosting and sprinkles (all of the food stuff is included in the box, and you can purchase additional food items separately.)

Oven review details:
1. It’s cute. I do think it’s quite a fun gift for a little girl aged 8 to 11. Parents should be prepared to assist though. After a run-through or two, kids would probably know enough to safely bake on their own.
2. The treats are very tiny (think “tea party”), so no need to worry about there being a ton of sugary sweets around.  The “cupcakes” aren’t cupcake-sized.  They’re tiny and flatter.
3. My testers told me that the treats were actually pretty good.
4. The oven comes with chocolate chip cookie mix, red velvet cake mix, pink frosting mix, rainbow sugar crystals package, & paper cupcake wraps.  We only tested the red velvet cupcakes.
5 Everything is simple to clean.
6. The cost: $34.97 on Amazon

    I do alot of baking. I love baking bread, myself. My kids love to help. They love to make muffins, especially. Cakes, cookies & brownies are frequently made also. My daughter, who is 8 yrs.old, has taken a special interest in cooking and loves to create her own recipes. She has her own recipe collection and tells me she wants to own a restaurant when she grows up. She has been asking me for an Easy Bake Oven for 2 yrs. now, but I’ve been afraid to get it, out of fear of her trying to use it in her bedroom & making a mess or burning the house down. Now that she’s older, I’m teaching her to use the oven, but she still wants her own Easy Bake Oven. I’d love to win one for her!

    Thank You,

    As a child I wanted an Easy Bake Oven more than anything (they were new then, tells you my age) and never got one. I would beg my friend to play with hers whenever I was at her house. My parents said I didn’t need one because I already knew how to bake in the real oven, but that did not satisfy the desire for an Easy Bake. I do love to bake and don’t think that I could tell you one thing in particular. I do love baking cookies at Christmas, and the rest of the year I like to experiment with new recipes. If I were to win one of the Easy Bake Ovens, I would give it to my niece because it is on her Christmas wish list and everyone keeps telling her the same thing they told me, “you don’t need one because you already know how to bake in the real oven.” It just isn’t as cool. If I win one of these then we can both cook in the Easy Bake and it will be awesome.
