S'mores outdoors no more

The Indoor Flameless Marshmallow Roaster brings the classic treat inside to the kitchen counter. An electric heater stands in place of an open fire.

The chocolate, marshmallow, and graham cracker treat that is known as a s'more is one that usually requires a great deal of preparation. No, not the normal food preparation one normally partakes of in the kitchen; rather instead of chopping boards and knives, s'more prep requires kindling and tree branches. Unless of course there happens to be a handy s'more-making machine nearby.

The Indoor Flameless Marshmallow Roaster brings the camping to the kitchen counter and leaves the campfire behind. The countertop device plugs into a standard AC outlet and measures about 14 inches by 14 inches with a height of under 6 inches, requiring considerably less area than a roaring fire. An electric heater accomplishes this feat, making it safe to create s'mores indoors as well as at any time of the year.

Creating an environment conducive to s'more construction is as easy as laying out the ingredients. Ringed around the gadget is a set of divided trays intended to hold the essentials in place while using. Also included are four stainless steel forks, so not only does the appliance make it easy to make the melty and gooey treats, but it also requires no foraging about for a perfect tree branch with which to toast the marshmallow.
