K29984 - Cook's Essentials Double Nonstick Electric Pancake Maker
worked a short time
The pancake maker only worked a few times.... then the pancakes starting sticking and the instructions clearly state not to use oil....
now the pancakes will not even turn brown after 5 mins of cooking and stick to the surface... terrible product....good thing QVC is not selling anymore of these worhtless products. would have rated it 0 stars if allowed!
Pancakes every morning
Love this pancake maker, couldn't imagine mornings without it.
Cooks Essential Clunker
Worked great first two times, now everything sticks to the top and bottom. My wife was just now cleaning it and she said it is getting harder to clean. I saw other customer comments about the handle. I haven't had a problem yet but it does seem very flimsy. I bought this to use mainly in my travel trailer. I am going camping this week and if the problem persists it will be sent back. A real black eye for Cooks Essentials!!!!
Loved it, even though it broke!
Love it!! It is wonderful, very handy little cooker, remember to oil it before each use! But it stopped working, in less than a week, when plugged in no light and no heat. But I loved it while it worked, I successfully made the following:
3 min/Pancake (great)
2/Fried egg(s) (OK, yolks slightly overcooked)
2/One Egg surrounded in Pancake Batter (yum!)
So Far So Good
I made pancakes this morning for DH and I and they were done in 4 min;.nicely browned and no sticking to pan. I still have to make eggs and omlets but no doubt they will turn out great. I have no idea why the complaints regarding tihe pancakes.
LOVE THIS ITEM
Was very excited when I purchased this item. I was a little hesitant after reading the reviews, but after trying it I am very pleased. We made both pancakes and omelets and both came out great. Easy use, easy clean up. The manual and recipes were very helpful. Thanks for adding it
just love it makes the perfect pancake cant wait to make some other things with it.
Worst purchase ever
This is the worst product I have ever received from QVC. I usually love all Cook's Essential products. I received it yesterday and was so excited about making corn meal hoe cakes (On air they said it would do it). I cooked them up to 8 minutes and they never did brown. I actually put the cooked ones into a frying pan to brown them. They were good, but who wants to go to that much trouble?
Love it from the first try
We have had very good luck with this. After reading the reviews, I used oil instead of spray and the pancakes and the fried eggs were great. I tried to freeze the pancakes and the kids just micro waved them later and that was also a success. I do wish it was a little quicker or that it made 4 instead of 2, but I do not feel that is truly a negative as I knew this was what we purchased. If QVC ever has a larger one I would be interested as we are a family of 6!
Easiest Way to Make Pancakes!
This is one of my favorite purchases. I was disappointed it did not come w/a manual or recipes but adjusted quickly. I like to buy the pancake batter in a can to spray on. We also wipe it with a little oil on a paper towel or they will stick after a few batches. It makes perfect pancakes in 4 minutes and does a great job on scrambled eggs too.
I love this pancake maker!
Perfect little helper
Well please don't laugh but this pancake maker has been the perfect thing to cook Boca burgers. I was tired of getting out the bigger frying pan and wasting the oil to cook them, and having them get too crusty and I didn't have a toaster oven. When I saw this I knew that it was the perfect size. It works great.. Probably won't use it for pancakes, I still like the regular way. Thanks QVC..
I was waiting a long time for the red pancake maker to come back in stock. Received it Friday and couldn't wait to try it. I opened the box and found that the handle was broken off. I decided to try it, but I had to use a spatula to open & close the pancake maker. It takes a very long time to make a pancake. I could make one faster on the stovetop. It doesn't brown the pancake unless you let it cook for a long time. The pancake maker is a good idea but it needs a lot of improvements. It would help to have a temperature control feature and make sure the handle is put on securely.
I will be returning this to QVC.
