Default Need uses for Easy Bake Oven

I just ordered an Easy Bake Oven and was wondering what I could use it for besides baking and polyshrink. Can I use it for polymer clay or to melt embossing powder. Or does anyone have other tried and true suggestions. Thank you.

Polymer clay is the same stuff PVC piping is made from...polyvinyl chloride. In order to "cure" properly, it must be fused at the suggested temperature, which is usually around 265º, depending on the brand.
This may sound dumb, but when I was little, the ovens had a light bulb in them for heat...is it still this way? If so, I wouldn't trust it to heat polymer consistently and evenly....so, I wouldn't suggest it for that.

Oh boy, if I see good ideas here, I will cry-I just threw out my daughter's!!!! Will I ever learn that everything can be recycled into something of value in the world of stamping?

I tried the polymer clay in it! It started out green and ended up black, but it did harden.. I broke down last week and bought a toaster oven for $17 at walmarty...
