Pancake machine churns 200 flapjacks per hour

The ChefStack appears to be the world's first fully automatic countertop pancake-making machine.

Think your coffee maker is the bleeding edge of food tech? Think again. ChefStack is out with what appears to be the world's first fully automatic countertop pancake-making machine.

According to the manufacturer, the patented process cooks hot, fresh pancakes in a matter of seconds. From an all-natural batter, 97 percent fat-free pancakes emerge at a rate of up to 200 per hour.

While geared toward convenience stores and cafeterias, I like to think of this as the next step in the evolution of the opening sequence of Pee-Wee's Big Adventure where breakfast is served through an incredible Rube Goldberg setup.

Shockingly, this machine is not from Japan, though I dare to dream of the day when the Ramen Robot and ChefStack Pancake machine face each other in the ultimate battle.
