Knowing that it's Kodak, they will probably give me a different price than you. They work that way. Also, depends on the "accessories".

I would off the top of my head, wild ass guess, say 250 big ones, US.

That's what I was thinking as well.

But if it replaces the need for half these BS's it will pay for itself is less than a year :dev2:

I like the easy bake ovens. Just easier to use.

As I understand it they no longer use a light bulb as the cooking source.

Ya, too dangerous. They probably recommend children wear helmets and protective gear just to use it. Gotta avoid those lawsuits.
