What are the benefits of using an automatic pancake maker?
One of the main benefits of using a commercial pancake maker is its ability to increase efficiency in a commercial kitchen.

This means that restaurants and cafes can serve their customers faster, leading to increased customer satisfaction.

This eliminates the risk of burnt or undercooked pancakes, which can affect customer satisfaction. With a commercial pancake maker, you can guarantee that every pancake will be cooked to perfection.
Commercial pancake makers come with a variety of customisation options, allowing chefs and kitchen staff to get creative with their pancake recipes. These machines can make pancakes of different shapes and sizes, allowing restaurants to offer unique and visually appealing dishes. Some commercial pancake makers also come with temperature controls, allowing chefs to adjust the heat for different types of batter.
What types of pancake machines does Maxima offer?

What is the difference between a Dutch and an American pancake?
The Dutch pancake is the classic large, round pancake. Maxima's pancake maker makes it with a diameter of 215mm. The toppings on the Dutch pancake include both sweet and savoury.

To get a thick, yet fluffy pancake, you need to use a raising agent, such as baking powder or baking soda in the batter.
Where are pancake cookers mostly used?
Pancake makers fit into any catering business. Thanks to their practical size and sturdy stainless steel housing, they can be used anywhere. From canteen to market or cafe to restaurant, pancakes can be served at any time of the day: for breakfast, lunch, dessert or as a delicious snack.
How to clean a pancake maker
Maxima's electric pancake makers have aluminium baking trays with non-stick coating. This makes them easy to clean. After use, turn the machine off and unplug it. Start cleaning when the plate is no longer hot, but still feels warm.
You can remove the food remains with a little warm water, a brush, a sponge or a damp cloth. Do not use aggressive cleaning agents. Make sure that your plate is never scraped with sharp objects as this could damage the non-stick coating.
Lastly, dry the plate with a soft cloth. The stainless steel exterior can also be wiped with a damp cloth so you can enjoy your pancake maker for a long time and always start every batch clean and hygienic.
