One thing as seen on TV products are designed to do is make you feel like your ordinary way of doing things is completely ineffective. Without these innovative infomercial products, you will be doomed to a mundane, fruitless life. This is particularly true when it comes to kitchen products and cooking utensils. How anyone ever managed to prepare a healthy, delicious family meal in the days before Ron Popeil is anyone’s guess.
Now, I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a complete sucker for kitchen gadgets. I once spent $45 on a tomato slicer (a fact which shall forever remain unknown to Mr. Way Back Wednesday). Now I am able to slice tomatoes of perfectly even thickness, without squishing them into odd little oval-shaped slices and getting tomato guts everywhere. Now isn’t that worth $45? I’ll also admit that I’m going to be more than a little disappointed if there isn’t a Big Top Cupcake waiting for me on my birthday, and that the Slap Chop is the perfect way to take out frustrations in the kitchen. And every time I feed the Way Back Wednesday Toddler (or as we call him, Way Little Wednesday), I long for a Gyro Bowl.
On the subject of today’s Way Back Wednesday, though, I’m a little torn. I mean, this thing is either one of the more ridiculous things I’ve seen, or it is brilliant and I absolutely need one. I’m talking about Pancake Puffs here. With the Pancake Puffs pan, you no longer have to suffer through boring, flat pancakes–you can have round, giant-doughnut-hole looking pancakes! Christopher Columbus would be proud:
Oh, wow. How would you like to be the kid who wakes up on his birthday to find not a birthday cake, but a giant mound of frosted balls?
Now, some of those puffs sounded pretty delicious, but others made me want to throw up a little. Plus, it the whole filling injector seemed a little creepy to me.
But hey–it comes with 50 flippin’ sticks. What more could you want?
