In 1996 Tom Belshaw and a group of
associates with over a hundred years
of food equipment experience between
them, founded Food Equipment Design
in Seattle Washington. Their goal was to
design and manufacture a better pancake
dispenser for the food service Industry.
Through the culmination of their knowl-
edge and experience, these engineers
and machinists developed the Pancake
Chef, the best pancake dispenser on the
market today. Made 100% in the USA.
The Pancake Chef’s patented, time-
tested design and precision construction,
provides dependability and durability, that
allows us to now offer a 5-year warranty.
One major improvement is that the
Pancake Chef’s base is virtually dent-
proof. Another advantage is that the
handle is mounted inside the hopper
which protects it and adds stable align-
ment for all working parts. The extra-wide
hopper is a great feature as well, making
filling the hopper quick and clean.
The Belshaw family has been active in
the Seattle community for many years.
Yvonne continues the work she and her
late husband Tom began. The White
Center Boys and Girls Club was the
recipient of a kitchen donated by them,
which allows the facility to provide meals
for as many as 120 children per day.
Yvonne continues her commitment to the
community and company while acting as
the President of Food Equipment Design,
home of the Pancake Chef.
