The 5 In 1 Tasty Baker is a very small waffle iron-type appliance that produces waffles, pancakes, biscuits, cakes, muffins and eggs in five kid-friendly shapes. We tested the Toy Story version. There is an Original and Mickey Baker as well.
The toaster only needs to be sprayed with nonstick cooking spread and preheated. It bakes almost any type of batter in one-third the normal cooking time. Our kid-sized waffles baked in 3 minutes. There are 4 heat settings, but the manufacturer recommends baking most items at the 2 highest settings. We could not find any reference to the lowest setting and are not sure of its purpose.
Our 16-month-old tester gobbled down the Toy Story waffles we produced and her Mom froze the rest for daycare treats.
We would have liked to see more recipes included with the gadget, but most recipes can easily be adapted by just reducing the cooking time by one-third. In addition to waffles, we tried a number of muffin and pancake recipes and all worked very well.
