Sunbeam's Pets Gourmet Treat Maker: The Foreman Grill of Pet Treats?
Wouldn't it be great, your best friend's been thinking, if you could bake dog treats from scratch every time he or she expected a handout? Well, now Sunbeam makes every dog's daydream a reality with the Pets Gourmet Treat Maker.
Picture a canine version of the Foreman Grill, simultaneously promoting convenient, healthy home cooking AND portion control -- the machine only has four bone-shaped slots, so unless you fire it up more than once per treat-ing, you won't over-treat your hungry hound. And with the dizzying amount of dog-treat recalls going on of late, you can rest assured that if you bake the treat yourself with ingredients you carefully select, the results will be not only tastier, but fresher and safer than store-bought.
OK, so this is admittedly one more gadget that will eat up space in your kitchen; but it's not that large, and for the chief cook and bottle washer, one great benefit is this eliminates the need for a treat storage jar. Sunbeam has even collaborated with chefs to create some new treat recipes.
The machine will be available at PetSmart on November 1, just in time for holiday baking season, with a suggested price tag of $29.99. Bone appetit!
