Do you like baking? If so, the Easy-Bake Oven “Baking Star Edition” might be the device for you. With a gold and white design and star embroidery, this oven is great for anyone ages eight and up. However, while the oven is fun to use, it is not always efficien. Unlike the original, you must use your own mixing tools since they are not included with this set. Meanwhile, it bakes better than the older version. The kit includes the oven, a pan tool, a pan, and one package of ingredients to make sparkle cookies.
Also, you must remember many things while you are exploring this gadget. First, you must make sure you turn on the oven and preheat for 20 minutes by flipping the power switch, located on the left side of the oven, after plugging it in. Plus, adult supervision is highly recommended, as the oven can be harmful.
When starting to bake, you must read every set of directions, they have pictures to help, and you must think about how long you have to wait for it to bake. In addition, it gets a little dirty and results often vary. Finally, you may need to add more water than recommended to reach the desired consistency.
As for the sparkle cookies, they turned out fine, but somewhat burnt even though the directions were followed. Furthermore, an additional amount of water was added to the batter to reach the right uniformity. Nonetheless, the cookie to frosting to sprinkle ratio was perfect and everything balanced out.
If you don’t want to use something prepackaged, but you still want to use the oven, you’re in luck because this is possible. All you have to do is follow a regular recipe and fit as much of the batter as you can in the pan. Even so, you must keep checking on the treats as they bake, but it is less dirty and less utensils are used.
Overall, the Easy-Bake Oven “Baking Star Edition” is a fine present or toy to have and bake with, but it is messy, inefficient, and has many steps, so you might just want to use the regular oven. The Easy Bake Oven is fun, but you wouldn’t want to count on it for your daily cooking needs.
