Total Cost Breakdown
- Same Size
Make fast, easy pancakes the same size each time.
When you are done, place the unit in the dishwasher to clean it. Conversely, if you want to make something in the microwave, place the Flippin’ Fantastic inside the microwave and then clean it after.
Flippin’ Fantastic is non-stick silicone, so the foods you make will not stick to the sides, in theory.
- Make Foods
Make small hash browns, eggs, pancakes, and more.
- Seven at a Time
Get the same perfect shape each time.
Make seven of anything at the same time.
- Easy to Use
This unit is easy to use. You can just put it in whatever pan you have and then cook the foods. While it will vary in terms of how well it works based on the pan you are using, it does what it claims to do. You can make small, mini pancakes seven at a time of the same shape.
Each of the pancakes you make, or omelets or hash browns, will all be symmetrical, the same circular shape. This does make it easier to stack the pancakes in small piles of concentric circles.
- Small Size
The size of the pancakes you make are small. They are not normal sized pancakes. If you divided a normal round skillet into seven small circles, this is the size you will get. What’s more, if you use this to make pancakes for a family, you would have to prepare lots of sets of smaller pancakes, taking up more time.
- Does Not Improve Quality
The Flippin’ Fantastic does not improve the pancake taste, time required to cook, or anything else. All it does is make them in the same circular size and shape. Beyond this, it serves no purpose. What’s more, most people, unless they have a restaurant or a food based event, do not need the pancakes to be the same perfect round size in order for them to be consumed.
- Uneven Cooking
There are some cases where you might want to cook four pancakes and eggs, or you are cooking pancakes that have simply heated unevenly. This take place when, again, pans are older, warped, or lack even heat distribution. In such cases, you will find that you cannot flip some of them prematurely while others might end up burned or browned too much. You have to flip them all at the same time, because you have to remove the silicone tool at once.
- Eggs Harder
With eggs, the same problems with leaking will take place. Eggs are a difficult thing to actually cook because they will likely become overcooked at the bottom and under cooked at the top. Hash browns can be cooked but they can take up to forty minutes, cooked in the oven according to the instructions.
How It Works
By design, this cooking tool is relatively simple. Similar to that of a silicone bake mat and a cookie cutter rolled into one, it is a mold with seven small rings for your food. Ideally it makes the flipping process simpler too compared to using seven pancakes with an individual mold, a process which would require seven flips.
How to Use (Step by Step)
- Prepare Batter
Prepare your pancake batter as you normally would. Alternatively, prepare your eggs.
Heat your pan with a heating element of your choosing.
- Align Mold
Place the silicone Flippin’ Fantastic inside of your pan, aligning the small handle piece with the handle on the skillet.
Pour the mixture or the batter into each of the seven slots.
- Remove and Flip
Flippin’ Fantastic does not help you to flip the pancakes. Instead you have to remove it once the pancakes are halfway done, then just flip them over the same way you would, retaining the normal shape.
- Fill Line
There is a fill line located on the silicone holes, and it is recommended that you avoid filling above that line. If you over fill, the batter will bake too high. This line can be very hard to see, so you have to look closely.
In some cases the apparatus might not fit securely flat against your pan. This can happen if your pan has been warped at all. Should this take place, you will find batter continually leaking out from underneath the unit.
- Pan Size
The instructions state that you can use it on a ten inch pan, or one that is larger, but it works best for pans which are twelve inches.
How it's Different from Competitors
There are other pancake molds like Pancake Express and Perfect Pancake Pan but they all offer the same heat distribution options, and all work best on flat surfaces. By comparison, the Flippin’ Fantastic unit can be used in the oven and on the stove top. There is not much use for Flippin’ Fantastic beyond a few baked items like pancakes, eggs, and possibly small waffles. As such, it is really only worth it if you are someone who makes these particular foods regularly.
- Pancake Express
Pancake Express will do three things for you. The first thing is measuring your batter. Second is mixing the contents. The third is pouring the perfect amount each time. You get cleanly dispensed, perfectly mixed batter each time. Those who make pancakes regularly will benefit from the ability to mix and pour in the same tool. A trigger at the bottom opens the batter onto your griddle, better than when you are pouring straight down.
In theory, the idea is to give you the perfect, round pancakes too. Battery powered, the unit has a battery motor which will last a certain amount of time based on how often you use it. Dishwasher safe, you can use it to make perfect muffins, crepes, waffles, pancakes, and cupcakes. You can hold up to thirty two ounces and even distribute the perfect portions.
- Perfect Pancake Pan
This is a griddle unit that you can use to make four perfect pancakes. With it, you can fill four slots with your batter and then close the lid to create four perfectly circular pancakes.

Tried it for the first time this morning. I cooked the hash brown egg bake. A disaster! I prepped the flipper as recommended and it still didn't work for me. The eggs ran out from underneath and I had to use a pizza pan to help flip it over. Gonna give mine to Goodwill, hopefully someone can use it.
