Creating Memories with Food: The Oven That Brings Back One’s Childhood

The different variety in foods can satisfy the stomach cravings. There are some discontinued food that were very popular before they were taken from the market. One of the most popular? The Easy-Bake Oven.

Some foods are hard to give up because a person is so used to eating them on a daily basis. The body is expecting them to consume that particular food in their routine.

Jennifer Berg, a graduate from New York University, commented on the emotional attachments food can bring.

With food, it’s something you’re engaging in hopefully three times a day, and so there are more opportunities to connect to memory and family and place. It’s the hardest to give up,” Berg said.

One of the most popular food-related thing ever was the Easy-Bake Oven, introduced in 1963. The oven can heat up to 350 degrees and it was launched in November, just in time for the perfect Christmas present.

The Easy-Bake Oven is a small lifelike oven that is safe for young kids. It’s powered by an incandescent light bulb and kids can put in the provided Easy-Bake Oven food that looks like powder then cook it and eat it.

The Easy-Bake Oven was a huge hit, it has been around for nearly a century. Kids all around the world were using it. This device can have the kids mimic their parents to make yummy food but they are rewarded with tangible foods for their hard work.

The Easy-Bake Oven was originally teal but over the years it has had many different colors that suits any preference. The creator initially wanted to name the oven “ safety bake oven” but that idea was soon shot down by the director of print and radio because the oven didn’t yet have a track record for being safe.

When making food in the Easy-Bake Oven, children can make real foods for dinner like pizza and even desserts. The Easy-Bake Oven can bring families together while enjoying the food. It’s also a great idea for a gift or just a fun time with friends. One cool feature that the oven has is one can put real cake mix into the Easy-Bake Oven and it will fully cook through just like if one was using a regular oven that is in their house.

The oven is so technical that children under the age of eight years old are not recommended to use it, with precaution having an adult to help and supervise if not old enough to do so by themselves. The one drawback about this oven is the flap where one inserts the food is big enough for young children to stick their fingers in it causing a burning hazard.

All in all, the Easy-Bake Oven is still a memorable toy that will always be famous, the oven can change a child’s life and help them experience what cooking is like as a child before they transfer to adulthood.
