Kitchen gadgets are nothing new, with historians recording the use of utensils and other kitchen aids for centuries but 19th century saw a huge increase in utensils and gadgets designed to save us time in the kitchen. While there seems to be no end to a better, non-stick grill or knives that can cut cans, (as if we'd ever need to do so) the 21st century seems to have really gone high-tech when it comes to some of these items. In trying to put together the most high-tech breakfast I could think of, I was quite surprised at all of the technology-based ways I could manage to cook. I was amazed that there is an automatic pancake maker out there called the ChefStack that can produce 200 pancakes every hour.

I suppose it's the perfect choice for someone that has everything and can afford it, but it's not likely to show up in too many homes.

It's very affordable at just under $20 and comes in a variety of colours to help match your kitchen decor, if that's important to you. It has variable settings to address how you want those eggs cooked. If you struggle with even boiling water in the kitchen, this is definitely something to look into.
