That looks like it's just asking for eggshells in the pancakes.

Seriously, isn't it about time we had a robot butler that can fetch a beer?
What's the frickin' point of science if we can't produce a simple goddamn beer-fetching robot?

Wouldn't the machine also have to harvest some nearby wheat and mill it into flour in order to be worthy of the "freshest pancake you could ever have" designation? Not to mention the salt mining and sugar cane cultivation it would have to do.

This is why I have bacon, a wife and Sunday mornings.. don't need this contraption.

Would go great with this  single hard toasted egg machine http://gizmodo.com/5982172/why-bother-boiling-when-you-can-toast-your - eggs-instead

I give my left nut for one of those - robots, not waffles.

No.  Only once that machine is created will this machine no longer produce said pancake.  "Freshest" is relative.

Can't play the video right now, but the article mentioned a gramophone.  Does it play Powerhouse?  Because any invention like this is incomplete unless it's playing Powerhouse.

If that egg was actually laid when we're supposed to believe it was it would have far more feces, blood and feathers on it.

Can you imagine this machine from the standpoint of the chicken?

She sits there, blissfully unaware of the ghastly fate that awaits her newborn. She clucks happily as she delivers a healthy (but thankfully unfertilized) ovum into the world. Only to have it torn from her breast and dragged through an infernal contraption. Soon she witnesses the systematic Jigsaw-esque murder of her newborn.  All the while, accompanied by jaunty music.

Ghastly, I say.
 
2013-02-07 12:59:43 PM
I don't think that chicken really laid that egg. It wasn't making a poop-face when the egg dropped out.
I imagine pushing an egg out one's arse would require some grimacing.

I see the Pee Wee Herman breakfast making machine as well as Family Guy's spoof of said breakfast making machine have already been posted.

Leaving satisfied.

And unwashed egg shells at that. It's clever, but I sure wouldn't eat anything that came out of it.

I was thinking about this. You'd need to average out each ingredient to get an idea of true freshness; an egg laid minute prior doesn't mean much if you're using rancid butter and stale flour. I imagine farmers often make the freshest pancakes, having access to fresh milk, butter, and eggs.

The egg cracking mechanism seems very shell-pieces-in-egg-mixturish.

Am I missing something?
I didn't se the pancake get flipped to cook on the other side..

It's true.  The recipient couldn't be such a farmer or the words "you have every had" would not apply.  Even so, average Joe would be hard pressed to find fresher.  Wheat, too, keeps fertile for years and doesn't lose "freshness" at the same pace as the other ingredients.  Once you grind it into flour, though, it's "dead" on the shelf and the oil in it goes rancid right quick.  I fresh-grind wheat I could plant on a regular basis.  Sometimes I sprout it instead.  Butter is easy to make, but here's the rub: how does its freshness vary?  By the age of the milk, the processing time of the butter, or by some function of both?  Regardless, finding intraday fresh milk isn't too hard, but don't tell Uncle Sam.

Even so, I'd lay money this is a fresher pancake than nearly American has ever had.  Even the 3-5% of Americans involved in agriculture/food production don't usually produce every ingredient.  Oddly, I've been thinking about creating "One Farm Pancakes" with ingredients produced on my farm.  You could buy them frozen between the Boca Burgers and the Eggos.  And here's a preemptive strike for the naysayers: you don't need baking soda or powder to make awesome pancakes.

F*ck yes. How do you get around the baking powder thing, though?

Whip the egg and don't let it sit.  Sustitute some of the oil with butter and whip that, too.  The french are experts at making fluffy things without contrived chemicals; take a tip from them.

That's a cool idea. I wouldn't buy it, but it's a cool idea.

I've noticed I don't buy most stuff in stores.  Thank for the props.

It's a Tim Burton movie, so Danny Elfman jangled his shackles and made the insanely catchy "Breakfast Machine" which is like Powerhouse for 90's kids. The in-movie record plays some short forgettable wake up ditty that lasts 6 seconds, sounds like "aAah, aAah, all of the beautiful things".
