Xmas in July, Day 21: See-It-Bake Oven

I don't care who thinks it's girly of me to want a See-It-Bake Oven, cuz who the Hell doesn't love cakes and pies and brownies and biscuits??!! A cute little contraption and efficiently designed-- man, I'm ready for some Xmas in July cookies NOW! (Montgomery Wards Xmas Catalog, 1972)

I keep threatening to have an Easy Bake oven in my cubicle so I can have cake ANY TIME I WANT.

Out of curiosity, I googled easy bake oven and I found out they still sell them, with easy bake oven refill mix sold separately!

Unfortunately-
A) They don't come with all the food mixes as was offered so long ago.
B) They don't use a light bulb in the oven anymore (i thought that was part of the fun, using a light bulb to bake food and all)

veg-o-matic, I can almost picture you baking cakes in your cubicle and eating said cakes in front of your coworkers faces as if to say "I have freshly baked cake and YOU don't."
One-upmanship is universal in the world of cubicles.

Heart attacks and brains exploded-- I'll kill you yet, CPC!

Let me know how that cubicle cooking turns out, haha

JMR777, that is EXACTLY what I would say to my coworkers.

It's amazing what you can cook with a light bulb. (Like my fingerprints, for example--forty years of being a draftsman and burning out bulbs on my adjustable desk lamp have permanently charred me.) Honestly, I don't understand why they don't make all ovens like this, anyway. I hate like hell having to open the things just to see if the braise is boiling or the skin is browning or whatever. This is absolutely the future of baking right here. And see-thru Tin Foil.
