Batter Up

In his quest to create the perfect plate for devouring pancakes, designer Jon Wye broke down the elements of what makes a pillowy stack so comforting. After a lifelong love affair with breakfast, Wye pin-pointed the crux of satisfaction: syrup. Designed with a raised edge that gently slopes the plate toward the diner and an ingenious reservoir for pooling loose syrup, this plate was made for slicing, dipping and delighting in each bite of pancake goodness. But the best part? This plate enhances any saucy dish down to the last drop. Made in Arizona. Sold as a set of 2 plates.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Jon Wye

Designer Jon Wye is quick to point out that his background is not in art. Sure he's always been creative--as a child, he used to make his own versions of the devices illustrated in The Way Things Work--but it wasn't until he was an adult that, on a whim, he started creating handmade pewter belt buckles and got hooked. He collaborates with a collective of artists and designers, but still likes to approach projects with an unusual, problem-solving perspective.

Case in point: pancakes. Wye is something of a diehard, pancake aficionado. Once, after a bad breakup, he ate made-from-scratch pancakes at least once a day for six months. Over time he perfected his own recipe, and discovered a way to keep them from becoming a syrupy mess by developing a sloped-surface plate.

      My hubby was thrilled with this unique gift. Our waffles stayed warm and crisp, bacon stayed dry from gobs of syrup. We also used these plates for dinner with pork tenderloin and mushroom gravy. The plates can be used for anything that needs separating. Great yet practical gift. They are a little heavy but worth it for the final result!

                  These plates were working well. I used them for several months but the last time I did one of them spider cracked throughout while my pancakes were just sitting on it. After that I was afraid to use the other one in the microwave (which I have not ever done with either of them) and definitely hand washed it to keep it from breaking too. Now if I want another one, I have to buy 2 more. Not sure it's completely worth it. Otherwise they are great plates but wouldn't recommend them to anyone right now.

                  Thanks for the question! The estimated cost is per plate. Would you prefer the plain plate or the plate featuring Jon Wye's original artwork? We can't wait to hear what the community has to say about this delightful dish!

                  Unless you are a real lover of pancakes, it seems silly to have plates just for one food item. BUT you should ask IHOP if they want to buy some to offer to cunstomers.

                  This is absolutely genius! Everyone searches for syrup to dip their specific pieces of pancake in and this allows a dipping area while also no making your pancakes soggy.

                  I would totally buy this plate, but for that price you should get at least two. It doesn't matter if you actually eat pancakes on it or not. You could use it for all kinds of saucy foods, but just because it's slanted doesn't mean you can't use it for anything.

                  I love the logo. The plate - well, a little pricey.

                  Thank you all so much for the fantastic feedback we received on this item! We do plan to add the plate to our assortment, but we're still working out some details--so it is not yet available for purchase. After tallying the votes and weighing your comments, our buyers have decided to go ahead with the plate without the logo. Based on your feedback, we found that a plain plate would appeal to a wider selection of pancake (and other saucy food) lovers. Also, we are working to keep the price as close to the estimated price as possible, and printing the logo would inevitably raise the price beyond the $25 mark. Thanks again for voting and sharing your opinions on this uncommon good. Voters like you are helping us make great new products like this plate star items in our assortment!

                  This is amazing. I love pancakes. But even as a pancake lover I wouldn't pay $25 for one plate.

                  Love this plate...let me know when they're available, as mentioned, 25.00 per plate is steep. Much as I like it, don't think I could responsibly pay that per plate.
