Pretzel-Jetzel from Transogram (1965)

Make Zenzational pretzels with the Pretzel-Jetzel, the “jet-age” pretzel baker!

Released in 1965 by Transogram, Pretzel-Jetzel was a large factory-shaped toy that measured over 2 ½ feet long. It operated on the same principal as the Easy-Bake Oven, using a single 100-watt incandescent light bulb as a heat source.

Pretzel-Jetzel came with pretzel mix, molds, utensils, paper holders, and a mustard container shaped like a baker. Players would squeeze pretzel mix onto one of the pretzel molds then use a hand crank to move it through the oven on a conveyor belt.
