Pancake Pen Review

 We have breakfast for dinner regularly in addition to the morning meal.  Many times a month this means pancakes, which my kids love.  Lately they have been asking for some more creative shapes and designs, which I have attempted with a spoon with poor success.  So, adding a pancake pen to my kitchen gadgets seemed like a good idea, and it was!

 This Pancake Pen is big!  It holds over 2 cups of batter which equates to a lot of pancakes (depending on size).  The pen comes apart in four pieces - the main body, bottom, top and a lid.  They easily unscrew for filling or washing.
 The lid has a rubber tipped opening that is heat resistant so it does not melt if it accidentally brushes the pan.
 The bottle itself is a softer, flexible plastic that is easy to squeeze.

Filling the bottle is as easy as removing either the top or bottom (I chose to remove the top so there was not an opening for the batter to leak out), pouring in your batter (it was near Valentines Day, so we got pink this time) and replacing the top/bottom.  That's it - then you are ready to go!
 Making pancakes is now so much easier and less messy.  The first few I had a couple of extra drips until I learned how to use the pen.  Simply tip and let the batter flow out, making shapes if you choose.
 We had a request for hearts, so I did my best!
This pen is also great for making muffins or cupcakes.  The opening of the lid is big enough to accommodate any chunks in muffin batter.  It makes pouring the batter into the muffin tin so much neater, eliminating drips, spills and wasted batter.

The cap makes it convenient to store batter between uses if you should desire to make up a full tube of batter but only use a little per day.  Now, a few day's worth of pancakes are pre-mixed and ready to make without the extra dishes or time.  Washing the pen is easy too.  After removing all the pieces, just drop it in the sink with other dishes and it comes right clean.

I love this thing!  I feel a little sad I didn't get one sooner.  So worth the price (which is quite minimal) for the time saved and fun enhanced.
