You’ve probably seen the commercial for the Perfect Pancake Maker before—a happy go-lucky host shows off all the benefits of a creatively designed pancake pan, but you’re wary of it being another oversold as seen on TV product that doesn’t live up to its promoted value, right? Although the commercial may exaggerate the difficulty of making a pancake the traditional way, the Perfect Pancake Maker certainly does amplify the ease of making pancakes—so much so, you can make double the amount in the same amount of time.
The Perfect Pancake Maker is a creatively designed non-stick pan that simplifies the pancake making process. All you have to do is dispense batter into the pan’s indentations, close the lid, and let the pancake cook on one side. Once that side is cooked, you flip the entire pan over so that the other side of the pancake can cook – no spatula flipping involved!
The Perfect Pancake maker delivers perfect pancakes every time, because the unit ensures that pancakes retain their shape throughout cooking, so you don’t have to worry about splatter mark or unevenly spread pancakes. Although the perfect pancake maker has a lid, it doesn’t smash the pancakes during cooking, so pancakes turn out light and fluffy every time.
The Perfect Pancake Maker comes with a batter dispenser, which makes dispensing the perfect amount of pancake batter a neat and easy task. It also comes with a recipe booklet for delicious twists on pancakes, mini crepes, and other treats that can be made with this device.
The unit itself is very lightweight, so it’s surprisingly easy to flip over and easy to clean. The cooking surface is covered in a nonstick coating, so it wipes clean with a soapy warm sponge—no scrubbing required, even for the usually tough culprits like burnt on batter or cheese. Perhaps the best part of its affinity to not adhere to things is the fact that you can cook healthier in it—no butter or oil required for cooking pancakes, eggs, or anything else you might put in it, and they slide out easily, every time.
Using the Perfect Pancake Maker makes experimenting with breakfast really fun. Before using this, I rarely tried new things with my pancakes, other than the occasional chocolate chip. Now, I try new fruit and nut combinations in my pancakes almost every time I make them, because using this device has made it almost impossible to create a disastrous pancake.
