My dad sent me a link to ChefStack a few days ago. The company offers a product for “Perfect. Panless. Pancakes.” The website equates their invention to the iPod for music and the toaster for bread. These people like their pancakes. And they like them auto-made. They claim it’s already a hit in Australia and New Zealand and are expecting the same thing in the US. The ChefStack became available only a month ago here though, so only time will tell. But it does look pretty cool. Batter comes in indivual packets and is low fat/low calorie. It’s kind of a bummer that you can’t use your own recipe while using the machine, but ease of use and a no-mess factor might very well make up for it.
After perusing the website for a good chunk of time, I couldn’t help but wonder why my dad had sent me the link. Was it because it was his 33rd wedding anniversary with my mother (in my opinion an excellent maker of pancakes) and was hinting at a gift? Was it because he knows how much Taylor likes pancakes and knows that our (skimpy in comparison) 2nd year dating anniversary is on the horizon?
