Colander and Bundt Pan 02:33

Can the chefs make pancakes using a colander and a bundt pan?

In true evilicious fashion, Cutthroat Kitchen host Alton Brown has been known to not only sabotage chefs' ingredients, but also to disrupt their means and methods of preparing and cooking them so as to guarantee the most hilariously challenging situation possible. And during tonight's second preliminary heat of the Superstar Sabotage tournament, he proved he wasn't about to forgo those unfavorable trials simply because of the all-stars' celebrity status when he auctioned off mandatory — and inferior — mixing and cooking vessels during the Round 1 pancake test.

A colander and a Bundt pan took the place of two chefs' bowls and skillets, as the chefs were doomed with sabotages that forced them to both combine all of their ingredients and cook their pancakes in those sole vessels. Given that pancakes ought to come together with both dry and liquid ingredients, would it be possible to prepare a batter in a colander, and what would happen when they tried to cook round pancakes in a fluted pan? It turns out that the Cutthroat Kitchen culinary team had similar questions before these items were sold at auction, and they tested the sabotage ahead of the battle to make sure the challenge was feasible.

Click the play button on the video above to watch their attempts unfold, and hear more from the culinary crew about what it takes to approve this sabotage.

Don't miss the next heat of Superstar Sabotage on Wednesday at 9|8c, and tune in for an all-new episode of Cutthroat Kitchen on Sunday at 10|9c.
