Who needs a CI griddle when you have a Platesetter

My eggsperiments with pancakes were very successful. I brought the platesetter up to temp with the egg, platesetter legs down.Dome was probably 450 °F. Put a dab of margarine on the platesetter, smooshed it around a little, and put some pancake batter on the platesetter. When it seemed the bubbles were right on the pancakes, I flipped them. They cooked for somewhere around 2 minutes per side. As you can see, I like my pancakes thin. They were very tasty, and left very little residue on the platesetter. I tried one batch of pancakes without the margarine, and they had a slightly bitter taste, probably from the residue from my previous cook. I think we'll have pancakes and sausage this weekend.[/img]DSCF2750.jpgDSCF2752.jpgDSCF2753.jpgDSCF2754.jpgDSCF2755.jpgDSCF2757.jpgDSCF2758.jpgDSCF2761.jpgDSCF2763.jpg


  • I would probably start with a clean platesetter

    But what if you wanted an egg with those pancakes?
    Happy Trails

    Barbecue is not rocket surgery
  • If you can cook a pancake you can cook an egg.

    More importantly, why would you want to?
    Here in the south, on a hot summer day, one can cook pancakes outdoors on asphalt. But hat doesnt mean it is the most practical or appealing method.
  • Well sure, but that argument went out the window once the pancakes were on there :silly:

    My point eggsactly.
  • cooking food on it is definitely not something I would use "my" platesetter for.......right tool for the right job :evil:

    well your placesetter is cleaner looking than my grates :laugh: my pizza stone is made of soapstone, one side for pizza, the other side as a griddle, works well for things like this

    I love it. Happy you decided to experiment and show that you won't "trash" your ceramics or make a horrible mess.

    I still say it would work even better on the pizza stone.

    OK...OK....I admit it...I was the first to say it wouldn't work. Thanks for proving us ney sayers wrong. ;) I admit, it still wouldn't be my choice of methods, but thanks for showing it can be done. :)

    Ross, you're absolutely right in calling for a clean platesetter. Since tonight is pizza night, I thought I would conserve lump and wait to clean the platesetter and pizza stone when I went nuclear for the za.
    It's been a fun eggsperiment.

  • so much for the batter being "absorbed" as folks were telling you. hahaha

    i was thinking the butter wouldn't be a good idea, but seems to have been ok.

    i'd stick with the CI, but it's nice to know you tried it and it worked.

    so much for the naysaying!
  • Egging is fun
