I love this thing!!! let me tell you how easy it is to make pancakes with the bonus feature of making mini and regular size cupcakes too. Just screw off the top, fill it with the batter of your choice and squeeze onto a griddle or into the cupcake papers.
When you aren't using it the cap presses up against the tip to keep batter from oozing out. It is really easy to clean too just unscrew the top and bottom and throw it in the dishwasher.
I found this one at Williams Sonoma for about $12
