S'mores Maker: "Does It Work?"

When was the last time you got the family together and made s'mores? Chances are, you were out in nature, around a fire with a bunch of kids screaming, "s'mores, s'mores, s'mores." Well, it may not be exactly the same, but there is another way to achieve the same result. This week, we put the new S'mores Maker to the "Does It Work?" test.

S'mores fans will squeal with delight, now that the S'mores Maker is bringing the great outdoors... indoors. The kit consists of a nice, heavy lazy susan, a kettle, 4 special forks and 4 ceramic ingredients holders. Everything has a good solid feel to it and assembles very easily.

But not everything comes with the kit. You don't get any of the food you need. The marshmallows, graham crackers and Hershey bars have to be purchased separately. Also, the Sterno can of cooking fuel does not come with the set.

 Neatness fans will love the way everything has a place. The crackers fit perfectly in the ceramic containers. So do the Hershey bars. You'll want to buy the original thin size. And the Marshmallows have a nice cozy home too.

Assembly is easy. But this is not a toy. Parental supervision is a must.

We gathered up a couple of kids and had a blast! Two graham cracker halves, smear in the hot marshmallow and on chocolate bar half and we were all smiles. The hot marshmallow melted the chocolate and made for some perfect s'mores.

"Does It Work?" We give the S'mores Maker, a yes.

You can buy a S'mores Maker at department stores, at amazon.com, or on the web. They cost between 25 and 30 dollars.
