Make perfect pancakes without the mess
I make pancakes every week, and I struggle with the uniformity because, of course, that effects how long to cook them etc. I bought the dispenser thinking it would help me in my dispensing, but not so much. It does just what it says it does, but I'm still the one that has to take my finger off the control to determine what size it will be. So, I find myself asking if it's worth dirtying another dish to use it. Right now I mix my batter in a large glass measuring cup with a spout and pour each pancake. It's a little messy with batter dripping down the side of the cup, so the batter dispenser helps with catching the drips, but I still have to pour the batter into the dispenser, so I have the same problem! If you do get this, be ware that the attached dispenser mechanism comes off - I didn't know this, and put it in the dishwasher as it - this unseated the mechanism, and I thought it was leaking until my husband figured out that it just needed to be adjusted.
