OXO Eggbeater or Transformer that Makes Pancakes?

6 years ago

In this day and age of power tools for the kitchen, cooking with your kids can be a little dangerous. Recently. in our kitchen, mixers, blenders and food processors have given way to wooden spoons and whisks so the Little Man can take part. It is getting harder to say, "Move ahead and Mom will do this part". Independent little minds and hands leave the room when pushed aside one too many times.

Over the Christmas holiday, LM wanted to get involved in the baking and I was forgetting to include him in the process. You see, he started making his own oatmeal in the morning, so now he is a chef and baker, on his terms, when he wants to be.

After receiving the OXO Eggbeater to demo (and giveaway), I thought I would try it out on him. "Would you like to help me make pancakes?" Sold, and THEN I showed him the eggbeater. "SERIOUSLY Mom, I get to use that?!?" Oh yes you do fine child.

So he made pancakes and they were mighty fluffy. Once he got started, he wouldn't stop and then it was time to clean the gadget. The beater section "shoots off like a Transformer". Cool. After removing the beaters, cleaning and then reassembling, he was convinced we bought him a Transformer toy that could make pancakes. I didn't even mention that he could make whipped cream with it!
