Light Bulb Ban Means New Easy-Bake Oven

Posted by Blair Eisenbraun on Mar 8, 2011

The ban on incandescent light bulbs starting next year affects more than just light bulb sockets it would seem!

Light Bulb Ban Means New Easy-Bake Oven
Standard incandescent light bulbs are becoming less common, and soon 100 watt bulbs will be fully banned.  When that happens, one thing most people probably won't be thinking about is the Easy-Bake Oven.  The Easy-Bake oven uses 100 watt light bulbs to cook the mixtures placed inside, but with 100 watt bulbs soon to be banned, a new heating element will be required.
 
Before the Easy-Bake oven there were products like the Little Lady Range from a company called Lionel.  Such "toys" were scaled-down version of real appliances, which meant lots of exposed heating elements that could potentially burn little hands.  The designers of the Easy-Bake Oven took a cue from street vendors' pretzel ovens to create a modified oven where you slide bakeware full of batter or dough through the oven to cook and cool.
 
100-watt incandescent light bulbs above and below the bakeware cooked the mixtures and created the mini-foods of old.  The makers of the Easy-Bake Oven plan to release a new version called the Easy-Bake Ultimate Oven, but they have not revealed what the heating element will be.  It certainly won't be any newer light bulbs like LED or CFLs, as they run very cool compared to incandescents.  
 
Through all the aesthetic redesigns, the Easy-Bake Oven has used the same two 100-watt incandescent light bulbs for baking.  How will the new version work?  A related story is the old Creepy Crawlers oven, which used a light bulb to heat metal molds filled with plastic goop to create creatures.  Will Creepy Crawlers receive a sans-light bulb update as well?  I'd like to see that, as I had a Creepy Crawler oven in my childhood and had a lot of fun with it.
