My family loves pancakes! We eat pancakes even for dinner. It is simple to cook but it really gets messy. The drippings and all that, its everywhere! As soon as I received this, my family got really ecstatic about it! The KitchenSpec Batter Cake Pen dispenser is the best purchase ever said my husband! Now, they can even “draw” pancake pics! It also came with rings that doesn’t melt at all. What I do is, I put the pancake mix inside, water or creamer (yum!) and shake it! And it is easy to store the leftover batter! Easy to use, easy to clean, easier kitchen life!
