Ummm... I just make he batter in the blender and pour it out of there onto the griddle. One less thing to clean.

Could you use a large pastry bag?

I'd like to find something similar that would accept and dispense dry goods to fill my coffee pods equally. A spoon just don't make the grade.

Someone recommended a shotgun shell powder baffle, but seeing I quit playing with guns once I reached puberty, I have no idea what that is or how it would work.

It is for loading your own shotgun shells, my dad had one. I don't see how that would work unless the coffee was ground, in which case it would work great as I remember his was very precise. Had to be if you wanted the shell to work properly!

But, that seems like a bulk operation to begin with. Ground a pound of coffee, put it in the baffle, measure it out until used up.

Andy, When I have a large corporate order I need something that will hold a fair amount of chocolate that I can refill. I had an order for 225 (8 oz.) candy bars with logo to do and it took a long time with the small funnel that I have. So I have been looking for something larger. I was trying to find something a little less expensive than the confectionery funnels.

I'm bumping this thread because I make pancakes regularly. I didn't even know there was such a thing as a batter funnel til I read this. Well, later I happened to see this exact one on ebay for ~$10 so I bought it. I gotta say it's wonderful! No drippy ladles, no batter on the sides of the griddle, easy to clean. Actually, I think this size is perfect for 2-4 people. I had to refill it a couple of times for my family. Still, if you make pancakes regularly, you might like this thing as much as I do. A big thumbs up from me!
