Does it really work?
It's a question I have about ANYTHING that's considered as an "As Seen On TV" product. Of course, I could read many reviews from other people who have purchased it, but I've always wanted to try them out for myself. Sometimes you just don't know if there are legit or being paid to say that. Well, I purchased this product with my own money, so this review is legit!
Here's what this product claims:
-Makes 4 pancakes at the Same Time
-Fast & Easy
-No Added Fat
-Four PICTURE PERFECT Pancakes EVERY Time
Let's break it down now...
Makes 4 Pancakes at the Same Time:
Totally true! You can make one, two, three, or four at the same time!
Fast & Easy
Hmm.. I must say the first go at it, where I followed the directions BIT by BIT - it took FOREVER. Of course now, we did not pre-heat the stove. And when the directions said cook on low to medium heat, I put it dab in the middle of low and medium. Seriously waiting for the edges to lightly brown and have numerous bubbles, took over 15 minutes before we could flip it. Maybe that was my error, but by the 2nd go at it, we moved it entirely to the medium level and it sped up and not to mention it was pretty hot by then! Having 4 being made at the same time is a great thing!! Really does speed the process for me who usually does one pancake a time in fear that they will melt together and two small pancakes become one big deformed one.
True again! One less dirty dish to clean is always a great thing in this household!
No Added Fat!
Well, the box screams this, but then Step 1 in the directions say to prepare the pan by using oil. So... this claim is a thumbs down for me!
Four PICTURE PERFECT Pancakes Every Time!
Pretty much true. Of course, it all depends on if you have an unsteady hand when you flip the thing, because it can ship the batter and ruin the shape by falling out -it did happen to me, but this is depending on the operator!
Overall, I LOVED this product. It did everything it said besides it being "no added fat".... if you enjoy thick, fluffy pancakes, this product is a great tool. I know my boyfriend prefers them to be on the thin size so we'll really just have to experiment.
What was an added bonus for me was the fact that this product makes THE perfect over easy egg. I never made them at home (or had my boyfriend do it) because I was terrible and flipping them and having them bust open. Besides overcooking them a bit and flipping them poorly, they turned out perfect!!
