PancakeBot started off as Miguel Valenzuela’s whimsical dream to make a “Pancake Machine” out of LEGO for his two young daughters. One day, Miguel was reading a Make magazine article about a pancake stamping machine made out of LEGO. His 3-year-old daughter, Lily, who was understandably fascinated by the idea, wanted her father to make a pancake invention of his own. Thus, PancakeBot was born. Miguel worked on developing and improving various LEGO designs and printed his first successful pancakes after 6 months. The PancakeBot was first revealed to the public at the World Maker Faire in New York. The response and interest from the public was so great that Miguel decided to build a more advanced version. Fast-forward to 2014, when Miguel displayed an acrylic version of the PancakeBot at both the San Mateo and White House Maker Faire. The public loved it! Inspired by their response, Miguel partnered with StoreBound, a company with the skills and know-how necessary to bring a refined version of the product to market. Together, they have succeeded in introducing the PancakeBot to kitchens around the world.
