Here at OhGizmo! we’re fans of any device that includes the terms ‘breakfast’ and ‘automatic’ as part of its feature set, but I don’t think any of us would have ever believed our dreams and childish crayon sketches of an automatic pancake machine would ever come true. But here we are! The ChefStack is only as big as a microwave oven but is able to autonomously cook up and spit out up to 200 pancakes every hour. That’s like 0.05 pancakes every second!
It does use its own proprietary pancake batter though that comes in special nozzled bags which makes the whole automatic pancake dream possible, but hey, we’ve brought you similar pancake innovations before that turned out to be not so bad. In fact the only downsides I can see to the ChefStack is the $3,500 price tag (plus the cost of batter) and the lack of an accompanying automatic syrup making machine.
