Automatic Funnel

Anyone have one? I was thinking of using it for pancakes or egg beaters.

I use ladles and measuring cups for those things.

Do you cook large quantities of pancakes and scrambled eggs/omlets to need something like this?

Even when all 5 of our children were living at home, I found a 1/4-cup ladle the best thing to dish out pancake batter onto my large griddle.

Unless, as Andy noted, you are cooking for a crowd, the funnel gadget isn't really necessary. Just my opinion, though.

If you are asking about something like this that dispenses measured amounts of batter or egg, etc., it is intended for quantity use.

For 2-4 people, it seems unnecessary.

I got a big 8-quart Pyrex glass measuing cup that I use for pancakes. Works great.

I think I saw the auto funnel at Chefs.

Auto funnels are great for applications of about 100 or more, be it saucing a pate or batter on a flat top. For the house I would think it is a bit over kill and just more to clean.

auto funnels

I'm looking for an auto funnel for filling chocolate molds. I know there are confectionary funnels but they can be very expensive. Someone suggested a saucing funnel instead. Does anyone know what the differences are (if any) between the two? Thanks for any help.
