With everything else going on in the world right now, you may not have realised that Shrove Tuesday (or pancake day) is almost upon us. In fact, the day when it’s perfectly acceptable to eat as many pancakes as humanly possible is on 16 February, so soon!

As well as deciding what fancy toppings you’re going for this year, you’re going to want to head over to bargain supermarket Lidl, who has introduced a new affordable gadget to make pancake day that much easier (if you’re anything like us, pancake flipping is an art form yet to be mastered).

The brand new Silvercrest Crêpe Maker costs just £24.99 and comes with all the gadgets you need to make pancake day a breeze. The removable cooking plate is equipped with high-quality non-stick coating, and the temperature is easily adjusted so there’s no danger of burning your sweet treats.

A rep for the supermarket said: ‘Whether customers are looking for a new baking challenge or simply want to whip up the perfect crepe, Lidl’s Crepe Maker will provide fun for everyone!’

Elsewhere in the food aisles, Lidl have all the ingredients you need for pancake day at very low price points – shoppers can get pancake mix (99p), lemon juice (26p) and caster sugar (99p), which means that each pancake costs just 19p each! Our mouths are watering just thinking about it.

Or if you really want to make it faff-free, and if you like your pancakes a little fluffier, Lidl is selling a pack of six American-style pancakes for just £1.39 that you simply heat up before tucking in!

Lidl shoppers can pick up these budget pancake day essentials and more from Thursday 11 February while stocks last. We predict a sell out – race you to the checkout!
