Chefs Across America Support Call For Gender-Neutral Easy Bake Oven

What little boy hasn't had this wish?
So far, 49,000 people have signed the petition. They've got the support of at least one Chicagoan in the food business - Jeff Mahin, the co-owner of Do-Rite Donuts. We particularly like Mahin's gesture to his kitchen when explaining his feelings about the Oven: "I have a big silver one behind me, so maybe they can make you one of those."
Hasbro announced yesterday that they would meet with Pope to discuss gender neutral options. Maybe she can also convince them to release a Pro line with stainless steel fixtures for the budding yuppie foodie.
Watch all of the chefs speak out in favor of letting a little boy undercook desserts with a 60-watt bulb like his sisters through the ages. It's kind of touching.
