As Seen On TV

So, I just saw the infomercial for The Pancake Puff...

How have I lived without even knowing such a thing existed?

Big Kid was pretty impressed too, but said that $19.99 was a lot of money for pancakes...yeah, but is $19.99 a lot of money for the happiness ball shaped pancakes rolled in cinnamon and sugar would bring??

I've always believed that money CAN buy you happiness and I think this is a great example of that.

So does anyone have one? Does it bring you the joy that I can only imagine?

Don't have one, but my daughter has been bugging the hell out of me since she first saw it at Christmas. "Momma, just think of all the delicious pancakes we could make" has become part of her daily vocabulary.

I SOOOOO want one!! We even have a "As Seen on TV" store in the mall and I unabashedly stare and drool over it each and every time.

I have decided I'm asking for one for Mother's Day! this will catapult my level of dorkiness to new heights, but I'm willing to risk it.

pancake puffs...here I come!!!

Well, I'm no help either. Now that you have brought it to my attention, I feel that I must have the pancake puff pan!

thanks for the electrocity website. My teenage son is loving it. Where do you find all these great websites!

It got (suprisingly) good reviews from the BB ladies!

I say go for it!

But the sausage roll puff idea is not so appealing...ick!

Mmm, I had not heard of this before, but you had me at "rolled in cinnamon and sugar." Off to Google immediately.

I have never seen the infomercial. But your description of the cinnamon and sugar reminded me of Pioneer Woman's recipe for "French Breakfast Puffs". Maybe making these will satisfy BK.

I have not made these either. And I don't belong making them or eating any. But I sure do salivate over the recipe and pictures.......

DH and I were just drooling over this the other night. Who doesn't love bite sized sugary goodness!

Our local news station has a "Does it really do that?" segment. They did the Pancake puff and got so-so results. I guess it took like 15 minutes a batch and the first batch sucked. But they raved about the corn muffin puffs.

I would buy it just for the pudding injector, though.

We have it! The kids love it too. It takes awhile to get the timing down as it is a cast iron skillet. Once you figure that out, you are as good as gold.Enjoy!

I'm assuming it's the same as this one from William Sonoma.

My husband was so thoughtful on giving this to me on Xmas morning and insisted on using it right away - read me. It takes a while to get the hang of how much batter to add. Flipping them without smearing everywhere takes practice. But it's fun and I use it once or twice a week. I'm a mean mom and usually hide a piece of fruit in ours instead of rolling it in sugar. The kids are going to be pissed when they see the commercial for this!

HA! We have one that Santa brought. It took some practice but now I am the Puff Queen.

Ooooh...I had not heard of this! I used to have a bad habit of collecting fun kitchen gadgets, mostly appliances (lemonade maker, iced tea maker, sandwich maker, waffle iron, rotisserie chicken machine, various sizes of George Forman grills, deluxe rice cooker with "fuzzy logic technology", espresso maker, various food processors and hand mixers, Emeril's panini grill, hot air popcorn popper - so fun for the kids!, shaved ice/snow cone maker....shall I go on?) I haven't googled this yet, but I'm thinking that it's like a skillet and not so much an appliance, so I can probably justify the purchase that way. I swore off the purchase of any new small kitchen appliances after I got rid of a ton of stuff when I did a big Kitchen Clean Sweep about a year ago. I NEED this though.
