  • According to Dan, the first weird pancake is avoidable by using less fat in the skillet - have you guys EVER had a halfway decent pancake come out first?

  • That was the best presentation I’ve ever seen

  • 8:52 That just hurts to see.

  • This is what are tax dollars are used for

  • Where's the toast?

  • Awesome tribute to the candy man.

  • Who ate all the other pancakes?

  • That was one hell of a speech for some pancakes lol

  • This may fall on deaf ears however, I think the best way to preform this would be to cook the pancake directly on the flipping device, alleviating a crucial step being getting under the pancake itself. I would first get a large piece of steel to temperature then placing the flipping device right on the steel, letting it come to temperature then putting the batter on. Ideally a thing piece of steel would transfer heat evenly then you could just preform the regular flipping action and remove the "spatula" all together. A little out of sport I understand however ever economical. As I'm sure you know starving children in Africa could have eaten those pizza peels you used

  • Make a giant waffle

  • Paul got some clean ass shoes

  • *Now do the toast.*

  • GIant Pancake...... You son of a bitch I'm in

  • Pathetic... They needed a machine to compete with the legendary John Candy

  • I used to work in a nice ish restaurant and every Sunday after brunch was over, my coworkers and I would use all the leftover pancake batter to make a pancake the size of the flat-top. It usually took two of us and four large metal spatulas to flip. We used a bus tub lid to serve it to the wait staff

  • John candy would be so flippin proud

  • Did it join the clean plate club?

  • From tiny whisk to giant spatula--Babish provides for all your comedic-sized cooking utensil needs.

  • Now he needs to cook our garbage

  • Imagine that it's your day, you spent many years in college and as a result, get to work at auto desk. The first thing you do? Make a robot that flips pancakes.

  • Akechi from p5 is freaking out rn

  • “Tiny whisking” - lol!!! Since I have one I now the correct use terminology.

  • John Candy did have a very uncle-like feeling to him...

  • I love John candy

  • NEPFR: Never Ending Pancake Flipping Robot.

  • Dude they did this in the 80's......

  • It's like Geocaching. On the one side you use million dollar equipment to find Tupperware in the forest or city jungle, on the other side you use million dollar equipment to make a pancake.

  • Goro Salutes you

  • 3:33 Has no clue who John Candy is or Uncle Buck.........

  • Yeah, it's a good pancake! Guess what? *GOOD PANCAKE*

  • Lol, this was like an episode of Portlandia 😂

  • Imagine going to college for so long and then get into auto deck but then a person that looks like he’s a part of a biker gang hired you to build a robot to make a giant pancake

  • Is this what my tax payer money is going towards? Cuz I wouldn't have it any other way.

  • this confirms that our future robot overlords will never have the ability to make pancakes like the human race

  • That's a lot of pancake

  • They should have invited the actors too

  • Wife of random worker there: So honey what did you and your engineering degree do today Guy: I helped babish make a giant pancake witha robot

  • How much batter did you have to make......

  • Candy would be proud :')

  • Once when I was in PA I ordered pancakes, and I thought they’d be your regular, average sized pancakes. But no, they were like massive. I swear that day I felt like I was in that same movie just because of those pancakes in amish country.

  • Please can we talk about the narration in the end?

  • I like how you got philosophical about a pancake flipping robot

  • BruhUncle Buck is a living legend, bringing giants pancakes and toast for host nephews birthday, he is a god

  • Where do you find that enormous pan with the two handles???

  • so home alone kid was in other films no regrets such a big pad of butter

  • This is proving the point that adults are just big kids

  • I can see Alvin from tasty sweating

  • PanCake

  • I love it when a robot whip and nae naes my giant pancakes for me, really brings out the taste of the pancake

  • Uncle Buck will be Proud. R.I.P. John Candy.

  • The peak of human engineering right here!

  • The graph of time vs robot killed me

  • Thats why the internet was invented: Incredibly complicated means for incredibly stupid end. And I seriously love it.

  • That pat of butter tho

  • this reminds me alot of the dutch pancakes i used to eat alot :D

  • Am I the only one who saw Kevin McAllister

  • This is great and all but how did they do it for the movie when they didn't have a robot to flip giant pancakes for them?

  • Imagine a bunch of professional scientists and engineers building a giant pancake machine.

  • Now crapes?

  • That monologue towards the end... what poetry.
