Batter up!
Batter up! QVC

There is something special about pancakes. Somehow hearty yet impossibly fluffy at the same time, pancakes are a perfect component of practically any breakfast. Certainly sausages drowned in maple syrup wouldn't be quite the same without them. Even when served alone, pancakes offer a filling deliciousness that cannot be equaled by any other breakfast food. Unfortunately for pancake fans, they just don't seem to find their way onto plates enough.

Whether pancake scarcity is due to the amount of time needed, difficulty level, or both, there is no reason to get worked up into a pancake panic. The Cook's Essentials Double Nonstick Electric Pancake Maker is designed to make pancake production as easy as possible.

Producing two 5.5-inch diameter pancakes per batch, the countertop gadget eliminates the need to flip while cooking. It features a clamshell-type design, similar to those as seen in popular indoor grills, simplifying the pancake-making process. Two indentations direct where to pour the batter, while a dual indicator light signals when the pancakes are done.

Mornings are never the best time to try complicated procedures. At least not until after breakfast and coffee. The rest of the morning may or may not be any easier, but at least it will be able to be tackled with a belly full of pancakes.
