Easy Bake Oven Giveaway on Southern Savers!

When I was a kid, one of my favorite toys was the Easy Bake Oven.  Have you seen Easy Bake Ovens recently?  They’ve really stepped up their game since the 80’s and 90’s and they’re still fun to play with!

Easy Bake Oven has been around for 50 years helping your kids make delicious Easy Bake treats.  Maybe an Easy Bake Oven is what your child needs to realize their passion for cooking (maybe one day they’ll be a Top Chef judge)!  The ovens now are stylish, modern, and a great gift idea for tweens.  They can even start making their own sweet and savory snacks when they have their friends over.  These Easy Bake Ovens feature a heating element similar to a conventional oven that doesn’t require a light bulb like the older models.

The Giveaway:

2 Southern Savers readers will win an Easy Bake Ultimate Oven signed by Gail Simmons, Top Chef judge.

      A box cake mix. It took about an hour to get it ready for the oven because I studied the directions on the box for so long. The frosting was the box mix kind which called for softened butter and water. Delicious! However, it no longer exists.

    • 13patties

      I don’t remember which came first, but I remember cooking Totino’s Pizzas and Cookies in my easy bake oven. When I would get home from school I’d pop two pizza’s in the oven. One for me and one for my brother. When my brother would get home from school shortly after we would eat pizza and watch the Flinstone’s together. I made all kinds of stuff in my easy bake oven. My father worked construction and would leave for weeks at a time. I would ALWAYS make him cookies to go and write him a letter on my momma’s typewriter. (made me feel so grown up, but I was only about 5) My easy bake oven burned in our second burnt house. I wish I still had it!
