I just received an email from someone asking about the sponge inside of the small capsule that goes in between the pumping system and the bottle. Please not, this is not a filter. This is not intended to filter air or to filter batter. It is intended more as a batter blocker to block the batter temporarily so it does not go into the vacuum system. The unit can be operated without it, except you run in to the possibility that batter will get into the air system should batter get into the hose.
The PancakeBot is the world’s first food printer capable of printing pancakes by automatically dispensing batter directly onto a griddle in any shape of the user’s choosing. Pancake designs can be loaded onto the PancakeBot via USB or SD card. Representing an evolution in food-printing technology, PancakeBot lets kids and adults express their creativity through food while exploring technology.
