Flip Jack

Pancakes are delicious, but they can be a pain to flip. If this is a problem for you, there's a new pan to help you out.

The Flip Jack promises to make your other skillets green with envy, by making full size pancakes -- just pour, cook and flip. It's also supposed to make French toast, grilled cheese, eggs over easy, crepes and more.

Chef Vance from Central Market and Quita Culpepper put this pan to the test.

The instructions say the first thing to do is season the pan, meaning you coat both sides with oil.  Then let the pans get smoking hot. Wipe out the excess oil, and you're ready to go.

If you're making pancakes, you can flip them when the middle starts to bubble.

The first pancake ends up a little crispy, but the Flip Jack flapjacks are a decent size, and batter didn't run out when you twist the pan, but since we were making the pancakes one at a time, it's a slow process.

Quita and Chef Vance also tried some eggs over easy, but that dish definitely didn't pass the test.

The Orgreenic Flip Jack gets a thumbs down.

You can find the Orgreenic Flip Jack pancake maker at Walgreens for about $20.
