ChefStack Pancake Machine

ChefStack Pancake Machine

The ChefStack Pancake Machine isn’t designed for home cooks, but it’s such an interesting gadget I can’t resist mentioning it. The clever machine makes pancakes without any human intervention and can turn out up to 200 pancakes an hour. Since it takes a few minutes to cook a homemade pancake after whipping up the batter, you’d need a very large and very hot griddle to accomplish a similar feat. It comes with packages of all-natural, low fat pancake mix that are combined with water to make a batter. The whole package is then placed in the machine, which pumps out the batter into three different sizes of pancakes and cooks them on a nonstick “cooking belt” (basically two very hot conveyor belts that sandwich the pancake batter).  Even more amazing is that the machine is about the size of a regular microwave oven, so it takes up virtually no counter space.

It’s not going to be replacing plate-sized diner-style pancakes any time soon (my favorite variety!), but these gadgets might pop up in a coffee shop or two that are looking to  expand their hot breakfast options and offer something other than muffins and bagels. That wouldn’t be a bad thing – I’m all for having pancakes for breakfast a lot more often! They’re priced at $3,500 and are available at the end of this month.

    That is too cool! If they weren’t so expensive, I’d buy one in a heart beat! My girls would eat pancakes every day if they could.

    I could see some people buying it for home if it was cheaper…

  • I would definitely buy this if I had the money. I guess you’d also have to buy the maple syrup machine though!

    Hehe altough I live in Montreal!

    Great share thanks Nicole.

    This is sooo cool! Our church has a camp every year and we make all the food homemade. Two mornings we have pancakes and myself and another gentelmen in my church are the pancake king and queen. However, having this machine would make the process sooo much faster and easier. It takes us about 3 hours to make enough pancakes for 175 people. This machine would be soooo great!
