Want to wow your friends and family with your crazy pancake art skills, but don’t have the time… or talent? This nifty new device is about to be your breakfast BFF.
A 3D printer called the “PancakeBot” can turn any image into customized pancakes, and all you have to provide is a flip of the spatula. Currently being sold on Kickstarter for $179, the device is constructed of a printer that squirts pancake batter in distinct patterns onto a low-heat griddle. Users can upload any image to the machine, and it in turn follows a digital pattern to make your customized pancake dreams a reality.
The machine is currently being produced and tested, with a July 2015 launch date, and will eventually retail in stores for $300. But the project has already been wildly successful on Kickstarter, raising over $300,000 of the original $50,000 goal, with almost two weeks still left to snag the device at a lower price. Now that’s a lot of pancakes.
If you’re craving pancakes now (we sure are!) try out our top pancake recipes, no 3D technology required.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard a lot about every spice-lover’s recent obsession: Sriracha (that is, if you aren’t already totally obsessed yourself). The ubiquitous red chili sauce has been popping up everywhere lately, from Taco Bell’s Sriracha Quesarito, to Heinz’ Sriracha Ketchup, to a slightly cringe-worthy Sriracha beer. And soon, a new line of snacks made with the authentic product will hitting shelves near you and fulfilling the dreams of the sauce’s dedicated devotees.
The snacks, which are a collaboration between Huy Fun, the world’s number one producer of the hot sauce, and Pop! Gourmet Foods will be the first Sriracha-flavored products to actually be made with the iconic rooster sauce, rather than an imitator.
Along with Sriracha popcorn, already available in stores ($3.99), they’ll also be rolling out Sriracha potato chips on April 8, with hummus, croutons, and tortilla chips on their way in the near future.
And in case that wasn’t enough options for you, they’ll also be releasing a dehydrated powder form of Sriracha on April 20, whcih can be used as a spice on anything and everything.
Need a drink to go with all those savory treats? Try a perfectly paired Sriracha Bloody Mary to keep the sauce a-flowin’.
