Hi,

It's been driving me crazy that I can't recall where I saw this so thought I would ask for help.

It was an awesome pancake making machine. I know it was in a restaurant and was a fairly large circular griddle. As the griddle turned, on one side was an automatic batter dispenser and after almost a complete turn it had an automatic spatula/flipper. I want to take my kids to see the pancake machine but can't for the life of me recall where it was. I kinda think it may have been in the Mountains (Boone? Gatlinburg?) but I am not positive. It was definitely a custom made one of kind type of machine and the main attraction for folks to watch.

Thanks in advance!

NCSaint

ps

I considered the best forum to put this in and decided to start here.

As the griddle turned...
Not pancakes... crepes.
Only one I ever saw was Magic Pan and that was a LONG time ago.

Nope that's not it. Kinda on the same path but the one I saw didn't have those pans. But I appreciate the input. I figured someone else had seen this. I have googled and youtube searched it every way I can think of.

I've been around the Boone area for many years and I've never heard of anything like this. You might want to post your question in the TN forum too.

hmm...great question. I want to think ~5 years or so back. Thanks for asking...I should have noted that initially.

Looks like I will need to expand this to a TN forum or perhaps give up the search.

I did find this which is close but not as fine tuned in the mechanics as the one I saw.
