Are You Ready for the K-Cup Inspired Smart Cookie Oven?

They’re calling it the “Easy-Bake Oven for adults.”

A company has developed a product called the CHiP Smart Cookie Oven, which promises to bake “fresh, gourmet cookies in 10 minutes without preparation, preheat or clean-up.” The company also sells pre-packaged cookie dough that comes in dozens of flavors under several different categories: Breakfast Cookies, Treat Cookies, and Special Diet Cookies.

Via Tasting Table:

Those cookies come from pods—yes, like Keurig—and are baked in a slow cooker-looking device that also happens to resemble a grown-up version of an Easy Bake Oven. Cookie lovers can pick how they like their treats and tell the machine via an app if they want chewy, classic or crispy cookies. There are several flavors to choose from, from the more classic salted chocolate chip to a banana quinoa breakfast cookie. (The CHiP team is pretty into selling the idea of “healthy” breakfast cookies. Um, sure, guys.)

Customers can order cookies in four packs or sign up for a cookie subscription, which sounds a bit dangerous for home use, but, employers, please take note.

CHIP launched a Kickstarter campaign with the goal of hitting $100,000 in the next 28 days. The machines don’t come cheaply — they’ll hit the market with a price tag of $249 apiece (not counting the cookie dough).
