Batter Blaster

A while back I mentioned the existence of a product called Batter Blaster. I finally got around to trying it out. Using the product was a breeze, just invert, press on the tip until enough batter comes out, and stop. The rest is just like cooking pancakes (or waffles if you're using a waffle iron) like normal.


I made a whole bunch of pancakes and found the batter was just as fluffy as when I make pancakes from scratch.


The taste was pretty good too, certainly matching any of the boxed mixes for pancakes that I've tried in the past (with the added bonus of being organic for those who are concerned about that). Since the can is self contained (no need to mix with milk or other ingredients), it's even easier that a standard mix or making from scratch (which you have to admit really isn't that hard). The only downside is that since all the ingredients are combined, it has a couple month shelf life and must stay refrigerated.


Overall, I'd say for an instant way to make waffles or pancakes, the Batter Blaster is a pretty good buy and could introduce pancakes or waffles into the diet of a family that doesn't even have time to prepare them from mixes.

If you're interested in trying Batter Blaster for yourself, their website (http://www.batterblaster.com/) has a tool to help you find a retailer near you that carries it.

  • Michael,

    I picked up a three-pack at Costco for around $8. Works well for when I want pancakes or waffles for just me. I still think that my scratch pancakes or waffles taste a ton better, but those recipes could feed a small army!

  • I might buy one at a time - I doubt I can finish a 3-pack before they start expiring.

  • I agree — I "gifted" two of the cans to friends :-) I still haven't seen the product in our regular grocery stores in south Florida, yet.
