      My daughter and I have a "game" at the Thrift Store that we started when we arrived in 08/11-- we see a roundish, usually either red or white, Cooker Thing, and before we open it, we have to guess what the inside "grid layout" will be.

      We've seen:
      cake pop,
      crimped hand pie, round
      crimped hand pie, oval
      1" cubes [still not sure-- chocolate? brownie BITES?]
      ridged slanted [Geo F style]
      deep pocket waffle
      2 triangle sandwich
      4 triangle sandwich
      smooth/ no pattern

    2. How hard is it to roll the dog biscuit batter and cut it with a bone-shaped cutter? I have a photo of my daughter at 3-years-old doing just that. For that matter, the dog really doesn't care if the treat is shaped like a bone, a disk, or a blob as long as it's food.

          that and a cake-pop maker are exactly what went through my mind.

      1. Ha! I think it's fun, like any other gadget we buy to make life fun and easy. I know the dog doesn't care...hahhaha.

        And for dog owners who don't really bake a novelty.

        1. wow -- that one redefines the word unitasker.

            really no different than an Easy Bake Oven.

              oh, not at all!! -- I prepared endless banquets and pastries in my Easy Bake (in my mind, anyway) -- it at least did work as a toy, even if I wasn't baking in it

              Somehow I figure the dog would be royally pissed if I handed him a make-believe biscuit.

            I find these infomercials hysterical. I suspect this product will do well. I too can think of a number of people who would like this.

              Right, you have to embrace the humor in gorilla marketing to appreciate why I think it's just fun...but I have no doubt this doggie gadget will appeal to some dog owners.

                Not one pickup over my use of gorilla (Guerrilla marketing)

                  there are so many people who don't know the difference that I wasn't sure if it was intentional or not.
