Is it just me, or do pancakes taste better on the weekends? There’s something about the ritual of whipping up a delicious pancake batter on a calm Saturday or Sunday morning.

While making the perfect pancake — with that slight hint golden yellow to brown color — doesn’t require too much skill, especially if you’re using a box mix, but measuring out just the right amount of batter for the perfect-sized pancake is sometimes tricky. That’s why KPKitchen’s portion control batter dispenser is about to become your new favorite gadget for whipping up pancakes.

OK so this might be in impulse buy, but if you’re finding yourself making more meals at home right now, this kitchen tool is a game-changer when it comes to making proportionately sized pancakes for weekend brunch at home. Simply squeeze the handle to create the perfect portioned pancake each time.

Not only does it help you avoid extra messes on your stovetop or skillet, the dispenser allows you to create the same size pancake batter dollops each time. PSA: if you’re not a pancake person, the batter dispenser can also be used for muffin, brownie or cupcake mix, too.

The dispenser has a capacity of four cups, which means you can easily fit a whole breakfast’s worth of pancake mix. Pro tip: if the batter is too thick for the dispenser, add a bit more water to slowly thin it.

Plus, it’s large enough to easily pour the batter in without any spills. And when you’re done using the dispenser, it’s dishwasher-friendly up to 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

With this helpful gadget, you can say goodbye to funky-shaped pancakes and hello to a tastier (and cleaner!) breakfast.
