    Default Today's Kitchen Woot: Smiley Pancakes Pan

    Nordicware Smily Face Pancake pan $15. Makes 7 3" pancakes at a time
    in a 10" pan. I'm not sure how you flip them, though. Would they
    cook evenly on both sides, or would one side still be wet?

    Just a flash in the pan thingy...the novelty will wear off real quick.

    It seems you'd have to flip them into another hot pan.

    I think?

    There are a couple of recommendations to use a chop stick to lift and
    flip on the discussion board on that page.

    The one sticking its tongue out at me would be the first to get stabbed
    in the face!

    It does not make sense to add rum to a kid's pancake just to have the
    fun of a flambe'. ;^)

    Into another pan presumably - because there's place on THAT pan to
    cook a flat side.

    I saw similar pancakes at a breakfast buffet in Pittsburgh hotel last
    October. I can't imagine them cranking those out quantity of they had
    to flip them into another pan, but .... <shrug>

    You don't need a special pan for those. I used to make them all the time
    for my brother when I was a kid. Simply put a little batter down in the
    shape of a face or letters or whatever. Cook it until it is lightly
    browned, then put your pancake down on top of it. When you flip it, the
    face or letters or whatever will show as slightly darker.

    I saw that and didn't pay it any mind until I read your post. Yeah, how do
    you flip those things? The Woot site referenced Nordicware so I looked
    around their site. I didn't find the exact item so it may be discontinued
    but it seems to be from this line:
    http://www.nordicware.com/store/cate...7-005056A40E68

    In several of the individual item descriptions it cautions the user to only
    flip the pancakes with plastic or wooden utensils, and the "snowflake" pan
    description says "Nonstick coating offers easy flipping and release". I just
    can't see it having a good result.

    Thing is, out there somewhere, there's probably some nut who has figured out
    through tedious months of day and night practice how to skillet-flip an
    entire batch and have them all land perfectly.

    I have one that makes waffle-like depressions. I turn it with the tine
    of a fork. Has to bake on both sides. The NordicWare outlet is maybe
    25 minutes away from me. Fun place to visit. :-)
