That's ridiculous.  The primary purpose of pancakes is to provide a vehicle for butter and maple syrup.  For that you need a high surface area to mass ratio.

This.

Those are mounds of cooked batter, not pancakes.
 
2014-06-19 10:34:24 PM
I'd give it a try.
 
2014-06-19 10:35:31 PM
That's not a pancake.  That's a cake cake.
 
2014-06-19 10:35:37 PM
So... is that a ricecake?
 
2014-06-19 10:38:30 PM
Nah, I got this pretty shiny thing called a frying pan to make pancakes in. That shiny thing is super versatile, it can even burn sausages on occasion. On topic, you can use your toasted maker to melt chocolate spread on mackerel? Ohmygosh

Call me when it has a timer and autoshut off functions.

No really, call me for that. I'd be interested.

The essence of the pancake is in the two words that make its name, you worthless Lifehacker piece of shiat human being. You invented cake, you jackass.

there's this other shiny thing I got, it ticks a lot but it does tell me when to get up and turn off the shiny thing filled with marmite and Doritos  you know that switch thing. On a serious note, any one ever filled a wrap and put it in a toasted maker? Instant mouthgasm
 
2014-06-19 10:55:28 PM
Can you use it to make flapjacks?
 
2014-06-19 10:57:57 PM
Will it blend? That is the question.

Yes, but they aren't flappy or jacky. So no.

On the whole, I'd prefer the ones that aren't jacky.

One of my coworkers keeps a rice cooker at her desk, so I may have to share this with her.

/good luck using a frying pan in a typical office building
 
2014-06-19 11:16:05 PM
Who the hell uses a frying pan for pancakes? You griddle that stuff, yo.
 
2014-06-19 11:22:21 PM
Pancakes are for heathens.  Waffles is where it's at!

A pancake is a thin cake cooked on a hot surface.

Two essential aspects are:

1) it cooks quickly - they are "fast food" that can be cooked on demand or a cook can produce a large stream of them.

2) by being thin the ratio of browned outsides to insides is higher than in fatter cakes.

The thinner a pancake is the faster it cooks and the higher its browned ratio.

As with making a pot of rice, the pancake should take about 45 minutes to cook.

Not a pancake in any essential sense.

I'm disconcerted by their statement that you could put your batter in the night before and set the timer to cook it in the morning. If you're doing pancake batter right, it contains eggs and buttermilk, two things that shouldn't be left out overnight for food safety. Then again, anyone who uses this stupid "lifehack" probably makes pancakes from a boxed mix, like some kind of heathen, so no real dairy to be had there.

/A few weeks ago, I had a little too much fun on a night out in Dallas with one of my friends, and she was kind enough to let me crash in her guest room. I was awakened the next morning to the wonderful aroma of her making pancakes the proper way, on a griddle, from scratch. She did this for me so I would have proper sustenance in my trying time of hangover. She even had real maple syrup. At that moment, I knew I had a true friend for life.

This is awesome, not sick, boringmitter. I posted that on Facebook a couple days ago and one of my friends already tried it out - said it turned out fantastic.
 
2014-06-19 11:54:26 PM
Pancakes are so easy you can still get them perfect when you're tired, hungover, and not really sure who that chick is in your bed.

Clearly the author of TFA (though possibly not TOFA) was never a college student living in either a dorm or rented room without a proper kitchen. Also clearly they've both never heard of the Westinghouse SA21950 Counter Top Chef Multi-cooker, which is basically just a (multi-) re-purposed rice cooker.

And they've also apparently both never read Jacques Pepin's cookbooks where he makes batter bread and an overnight-raised yeast bread in a non-stick pot similar to the one in a rice-cooker (or the above multi-cooker).
 
2014-06-20 12:10:37 AM
Also, I've made biscuits in a pan in similar fashion (rolled/cut, drop-style and of course prepackaged pop-n-fresh style butterflake), but I've never had the courage to do more than wonder if brownies would work in such a method. Might need to be flipped to get crusty on top.

Ooo, but how about cookie dough?
 
2014-06-20 12:12:36 AM
And yet Darth on Twitter (not the Darth you're looking for) has been raving about how awesome this is for the past couple days. He got me interested until I remembered I don't have a rice cooker.

Now that I see what they look like, I'll stick with the way I've been making them.
 
2014-06-20 12:17:47 AM
The kids loved this when I did it, we had chocolate chip pancake cake with syrup for dessert one night.  I'd never do this to eat for one person, but as something to get the kids involved in, it was great
 
2014-06-20 12:28:42 AM
Yes but can it make chocolate lava cakes?
 
2014-06-20 12:49:46 AM
Don't care what it's called, but sounds good, so trying to make one now. Added sugar, cocoa, and chopped banana to the batter. Only problem is the button in the cooker keeps popping up, but the batter is still liquid. Smells good, but a failure thus far.

Grotesk: Westinghouse SA21950 Counter Top Chef Multi-cooker


Currently unavailable on amazon!  I had to look.  Looks interesting but I'm so disappointed now.

Ah, but you could put maple syrup inside of it while it cooks, giving you scrumptious syrupy ribbons...

The electric multi-cookers do have timers and shut off. Some I think can go up to 450 degrees so that you can brown meat etc., however they don't provide much cooking surface because they are more pots than pans.

I don't know if they have any safety rules built in. Do you really want an electric skillet that can be programmed to run for 6 hours at 450 while you are at work and burn the house down?

Or are you interested in some method of "meth cooking" that could be done in your absence with a programmable frying pan?

Update: I took the bowl out of the cooker and put it in the oven at about 200 for a while to finish it off. Tasted good!

Now I'll just mute top gear for one precious minute . Wtf is a rice cooker anyway? Is a rice cooker not simply a frying pan filled with boiling water ( and rice) ?

No, it's an appliance that cooks rice, and then automatically switches to a warming mode, so the rice doesn't get overcooked.

Sounds like you've made friends with one of the true Wise Ones.  Be nice to her, or she will use her awesome powers to destroy you.  That's the way these things work ;)

I realize I'm echoing previous posts, but HOW THE CRAP IS THAT A PANCAKE?
 
2014-06-20 02:59:52 AM
That is no pancake, at best you could claim it is an oversized yorkshire pudding.
 
2014-06-20 03:20:44 AM
I tried it with syrup, cocoa powder and cinnamon mixed in.
Can't see why subtard called it "Sick". It was quite good.

When the article says 'Japanese Rice Cooker', they aren't kidding: I tried this in my Korean rice cooker and my house exploded.
 
2014-06-20 08:38:08 AM
I don't understand why people own rice cookers. I can make much better rice in a regular old pot that can also be used to cook countless other dishes.
 
2014-06-20 09:08:57 AM
If it doesn't involve bacon grease and amaretto, I am not interested.

For the convenience of not having to worry about the timing for a meal. It will stop coming when it's perfect and then stay nicely warm until you're ready to serve it.
 
2014-06-20 10:32:03 AM
I will say that the cheesecake idea is a good one... off to the webs!
