Following a recent slew of great Aldi bargains (including over 10 different hot cross bun flavours for Easter), we’re turning our minds to a much closer food-related event: pancake day. Shrove Tuesday lands on 16 February this year, and Aldi is stocking up on great buys to help you have a flipping good day of pancake eating (sorry).
Whether you enjoy yours at breakfast or as a post-dinner treat (or all throughout the day), Aldi has something that is sure to bring a smile to the event: the smiley face pancake pan. After such a great response to the pan last year, Aldi has brought it back for everyone to enjoy once more.
The £7.99 pan features 7 circular moulds to pour your pancake mix into, with a different emoji-style face in each one, and the non-stick coating means it’s easy to clean when you’re finished, too.
Also in the range is a waffle pan to make mini waffle-style pancakes, a mini pancake pan to make plain circular pancakes and a funky animal pan, plus a large pancake/crepe pan. All are dishwasher safe and finished with non-stick coating for durability and easy clean up.
The smiley face pan has been on sale several times at Aldi before, attracting multiple glowing reviews from happy customers.
‘Me and the kiddies love this pan! Easy to use and get the right size of pancake (my freestyle ones were always odd shapes!) And the smiley faces are a fun addition. I found no problem in turning them as I have a small plastic spatula, which worked perfectly! No sticking and very easy to clean too!’ wrote one.
Another said: ‘Was lucky to purchase the last pan online and my boys loved their pancakes. They turned out perfect 1st time.’
‘Kids love the smiley faces, tricky to turn them over but once you get use to it, it’s easy. Best purchase,’ said another.
Aldi pancake pans are available to shop online from 7 February and in stores from 11 February.
