EASIER batter dispensing
November 20, 2012
Never had one before - it's better than 'just OK' - heavy duty plastics with (?) Silicon plunger. Disassembles easily and because of the increased pressures, the pistol grip plunger assembly locks securely in place.
My only "con" is the pre-arranged quantity dispensed in to muffin pans. Has 3 settings - Small would be for mini-pans, Medium is for standard muffin pans (but is too much, causing baked goods to spill over while baking); Large I assume would be for Giant Muffin Pans, or waffles/pan cakes, etc.
Would have appreciated it quite a bit more if the 'pre-measured' mechanism were adjustable, say with a turn-screw or lever.
Still glad I purchased it, but as always, could have been just a bit better.
Oh, almost forgot, it's totally dripless and dispenses exactly where you want it to.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Easy to Store, Size, Versatile, Shape, Design, Weight
Cons: pre-set measurements - needs to be adjustable.

Really Disappointing
July 27, 2012
I love Wm. Sonoma stuff, and I am willing to pay for it because it has always been top quality. This was a horrible disappointment. It drips batter when not in use so it has to sit on a plate while a batch of cakes is cooking, the 'size control' is not accurate (I consider silver dollar pancakes not to be 4" in diameter), but worst of all was that liquid can get between the plastic and stainless parts of the main tube and you cannot clean it out! Really!? That is just poor design. In the end, you create way more dishes than you could ever make cooking pancakes without the Dispenser, and you end up with pancaked crud and water left in the body of the Dispenser that you can't clean. Maybe if you were using this for muffins or a much thicker batter it would work, but for pancakes, I am sorry to say I would avoid it.
Pros: Shape, Weight
Cons: Quality, Difficult to Clean
