How does the printer work?
The basic principal of 3d printing is that the building, or in this case cooking material is squeezed out layer by layer and the required design is built or cooked. So in the case of 3d food printing, the pancake batter is loaded into the printer and then it is squeezed out layer by layer onto a flat surface. As you can see in the video, the PancakeBot 3D Food Printer has a nozzle type of thing on the top which is used to squeeze out the pancake batter onto the griddle plate below.
3d food printing is suitable for cooking food that is flat in nature, and nothing can be more flat than a pancake.

What are the features of this printer?
Use ingredients that you like
The concept of 3d food printing was introduced because it allows the use of unconventional cooking materials to achieve that perfect taste you might be looking for. For example, if you are wanting to create a pancake with healthier ingredients, proteins from sources like algae and beet leaf may be a good option. So you can also try making pancakes with different kinds of ingredients, including the unconventional ones, and see how the textures and taste turns out each time. This unique pancake robot gives you the freedom to experiment with your cooking as well as designing skills so that you can perfect your expertise with the help of one of the best inventions of the new age.
Batter Dispensing System
The first wonderful feature of this appliance is the batter dispensing system. The batter is what you use to
make the pancake, and the batter dispensing system is installed right on top. It has a very fine nozzle that has been tuned to be accurate to the order of millimetres. So with the help of this wonderful system, you can go wild with your designs. You can have a go at making anything you want – pancakes of any shape and design that would be impossible to make by hand. The PancakeBot will produce the shape and design perfectly with the help of this batter dispensing system.
Software to produce designs
If you are wondering how you are going to create your masterpiece and then make the PancakeBot use your design, then rest assured, there is an easy to use software that comes with the printer ready to upload onto your computer. You need to install this software on your computer and then connect it to the PancakeBot. After that you can trace out any design or shape and the PancakeBot will produce a pancake that looks exactly like your design. Another advantage of tracing out the designs on the computer is that you can keep them for future reference as well.
One of the most impressive features i thought was this: The PancakeBot company has already made allowances in the device, so it can be upgraded with software to increase its performance. So you will be able to upgrade the software to make your printer run better as they develop more efficient programs.
Easy Clean Up
Another important thing associated with cooking is the cleaning up afterwards. If you have tried making pancakes before, you will know that the pancake can stick to the bottom of the utensil and that can be troublesome to clean. Now cooking on a 3d printer, you might be really worried about how to clean it. To make things easier for you, this product comes with an amazing feature. The electric griddle that is used in this appliance is non-stick so it is easy to clean. On top of that, a removable probe has been included making this very convenient and quick to clean.
Free from Harmful Plastics
When you are cooking pancakes for your family, health is a major issue. Cooking with plastic utensils has always been a thing of concern because plastics can contain different kinds of chemicals. One of the most harmful chemicals used in making plastics and resins is Bisphenol A or BPA. If consumed, it can be really harmful to your health and that is why an attempt is being made to manufacture BPA free utensils and products. Luckily for you the only plastic part in this appliance that you need to be concerned about, the batter dispenser, is absolutely BPA free. So health concerns are not an issue when you make pancakes using the PancakeBot Food Printer.
