You may remember the national mourning that occurred a few years ago when Easy Bake Ovens were recalled. Generations of passionate bakers wept when the news arrived that their very first oven — which baked small goodies with a really hot light bulb — was dangerous and being pulled off the shelf. Well, Hasbro has fixed the problems by replacing traditional lightbulbs with energy-effecient LEDs and compact fluorescents. Apparently the new version heats up to about 375 degrees, but the exterior of the oven remains warm — not hot — to the touch. It also got a little bit of a makeover. It’s sleeker and more purple than ever before. Hooray! Read more about the new design at ivillage.com.
