Who doesn’t love pancakes? Okay, you can put your hands down, Celiac sufferers. Everybody else, get ready for a pancake miracle. Alaska Airlines has upped the airport lounge breakfast game with “Popcake” machines that churn out pancakes faster than Sunday morning dads ever could. They’re essentially pancake robots that issue their circular products from an internal assembly line.

Four years ago, Alaska Airlines brought the first Popcake machine in US airline history to their hub at SEA and now there are little pancake robots cranking out the flapjacks at each of the airlines’ four Board Room lounge locations in Seattle, Portland, LA, and Anchorage. Instead of a granola bar for breakfast, Alaska fliers get fresh pancakes and that beats a lot of what the other domestic airlines are offering. Pretty cool, eh?

If you want to check out the pancake robot in person, click here to take $10 off a Board Room day pass through August 31.
