By on March 12, 2015

shut_up_and_take_my_moneyFinally, a way to print my breakfast! Created by Miguel Valenzuela, the PancakeBot is a unique batter dispensing system combined with a traditional griddle.

Utilizing compressed air and a vacuum, the batter is dispensed based off a design that’s been uploaded from a SD card. The card also comes with some preloaded designs. In addition, the Pancakebot comes with software unique to the device that allows someone to create a new design.

The software includes options for layering, thus you can control the order in which the lines are drawn. Food coloring can also be added into the mix for splashes of color in the design. This type of device would be ideal for any family with young children, small restaurants that want to get fancy with breakfast or anyone simply obsessed with pancakes.


Expected to retail for $299 eventually, early Kickstarter backers can get in at a $179 price with an estimated shipping date of July 2015. While the project has already doubled the funding goal of $50,000, stretch goals at $250,000, $500,000 and $1 million include different color options, an extra bottle with a large spatula and increasing the number of preloaded designs to 50.

As with all Kickstarter projects, be aware that manufacturing issues of delay the shipping date of the final product by weeks or even months. You can learn more about the PancakeBot in the video below:
