TOY BOX: S'mores Maker will satisfy all tastes

As I concurred with a fellow PRWeek staffer - whose desk is located adjacent to mine, and who, in turn, deserves props this week for having to watch the savage editorial staff devour helpings of gooey, sizzling graham cracker-chocolate-marshmallow combinations - CasaModa's S'mores Maker ranks up there with that fondue set you used once last decade and never bothered with again. That is not to say, however, that the novelty, albeit short-lived, is not worth it.

As I concurred with a fellow PRWeek staffer - whose desk is located adjacent to mine, and who, in turn, deserves props this week for having to watch the savage editorial staff devour helpings of gooey, sizzling graham cracker-chocolate-marshmallow combinations - CasaModa's S'mores Maker ranks up there with that fondue set you used once last decade and never bothered with again. That is not to say, however, that the novelty, albeit short-lived, is not worth it.

The S'mores Maker comes with a grill, flame snuffer, burner holder and handle, two marshmallow holders, one chocolate-bar and one graham-cracker holder, a Lazy Susan base, and four marshmallow roasting forks. The presentation is clean and sleek, as everything fits snugly into allotted spots on the black turnstile base, and the ceramic holders are simple and white. Functionally, this product is also a hit. The s'mores we made actually looked eerily identical to the ones displayed on the packaging, and they tasted great. The verdict: At thirty bucks, who cares if you only use it once? Any questions?
