I don’t understand the barfalert. So guys shouldn’t cook? I suppose they should just hit something over the head, drag it past the fire and eat it raw?

Horse dung.

What difference does it make what color it is?

Toss the Easy Bake in the trash and teach the kid to cook on a real stove.

I am male. I'm a culinary professional. You have a barf for that?

Petitioning the manufacturer, instead of suing is the right way.

Why doesn’t mommy cook with both of them in their real kitchen? That’s what this mommy does with my four year old son and 14 month old daughter. The bigger the mess the more the fun!

It appeals to me. I want to stick this kid’s head in one.

Teach the kid to use a real oven, good lord, people have way to much time on their hands.

We don’t have to cook. We marry the cook, dishwasher, coffeemaker, Roomba.

BBQ and fishing is what we do best.

If you have an old one then I believe that used a 100 watt light bulb for heat. Now banned.

Of course it should be gender-neutral. That way little boys won't be embarrassed when they open the package, take the oven out to the back yard, fill it with firecrackers, and blow it over the neighbor's fence.

Not that I would ever have done such a thing.

You have no evidence.

Officer.

So the eighth-grader from Garfield, N.J., started an online petition asking Pawtucket, R.I.-based Hasbro to make the toy ovens in gender-neutral colors

What are "gender-neutral" colors?

It appealed to my youngest son. He wanted me to buy one for my oldest granddaughter (4 years younger than youngest son) so she would cook things for him to et :-)

seriously - mean and women should be able to cook a good home-made meal. Taught all my boys how to cook - it’s a basic survival skill

It will appeal to boys just fine if they can cook bugs and spiders to death in it. :)

Other than the “gender-neutral” phrase, the article has a fair amount of merit. The advantage of the toy oven is that you don’t have to have an adult around to use it. Yes, cooking with the real thing is fun, and you do get a much wider range of dishes, but you *have* to have an adult around when the child chef is only 4 or 5. I learned on an ancient Glenwood gas stove, where the oven was lit by dropping a lit match into a hole where the burners were and turning on the gas, and the cooktop burners had to be lit with a welding striker; Mom or Dad was always around to handle that when I was small.

Yes, electric or modern gas cooking is a lot safer now, but you still can’t let a 4-year-old run one unsupervised, and that’s where the EZ-Bake comes in. The kid can “cook” on their own for fun, doing the basic things, and still do more complex stuff with a grown-up’s help.

When I was a kid my little sister got an easy bake oven. I think my brothers and I cooked up half the stuff. I can still remember the taste of that stuff.

They were fun and it’s a good toy.

Sure, have little kids try and cook stuff over a real stove or oven and scar them up for life...

He sort of makes a point. It used to be that toys were mini adult things and were made to look like it. Why shouldn’t toy stoves come in stove colors?

You have to teach the boy how to cure Duracoat somehow. Easy bake oven just might work.

Buy the kid a real cast iron dutch oven so he can learn to cook like a man!
He can make stew, roasts, soups, biscuits, and he can turn the lid upside down on the fire and use the inside to cook bacon and eggs!

The freaks think they’ll “domesticate” young males; instead they are just guaranteeing that they won’t even cohabitate anymore (they won’t need to).

Marriage is basically off the table already.
