“Air fryers are easy bake ovens for adults”

The Easy-Bake Oven is a toy that was introduced in 1963 to help teach young children to cook. An air fryer is sometimes said to be a similar toy for older individuals.

“Air fryers are the easy bake ovens of the adult millennial population” was posted on Twitter by Postal Elite on November 25t, 2018. “So, the air fryers that are all the rage now… they’re just Easy Bake Ovens packaged for adults, right?” was posted on Twitter by Justine Frederiksen on December 27, 2018. “An Air Fryer is just an Easy Bake Oven for adults” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on March 10, 2019. “Air fryers are easy bake ovens for adults” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on October 11, 2020. “Air fryers are the easy bake ovens many of us never got as children” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on October 6, 2021.

“A microwave is an easy bake oven for adults” is a related saying.


Wikipedia: Air fryer
An air fryer is a small countertop convection oven designed to simulate deep frying without submerging the food in oil. A fan circulates hot air at high speed, producing a crisp layer via browning reactions such as the Maillard reaction. Some product reviewers claim that regular convection ovens or convection toaster ovens produce better results or that air frying is essentially convection baking under a trendy new name.

Wikipedia: Easy-Bake Oven
The Easy-Bake Oven is a working toy oven that Kenner introduced in 1963, and which Hasbro still manufactured as of late May 2017. The original toy used a pair of ordinary incandescent light bulbs as a heat source; current versions use a true heating element. Kenner sold 500,000 Easy-Bake Ovens in the first year of production.  By 1997, more than 16 million Easy-Bake Ovens (in 11 models) had been sold.
