Our beloved ChefStack automatic pancake machine will always have a place in our hearts, but there's a good chance this Rotimatic flat bread maker could earn a permanent spot on our kitchen counters. All it needs to churn out delicious piping hot roti is water, flour, oil, and about a minute of patient waiting.

Like with a bread maker, all you need to do is dump the raw ingredients into the Rotimatic's separate chambers and hit go. It has enough capacity to bake 20 rotis before needing a refill, and you have full control over how thick, or how soft, the bread ends up. Everything else, from rolling the dough, to flattening it out, to even puffing the roti, is all taken care of inside the machine.

The Rotimatic is expected to ship before the end of the year, and while pricing details haven't been finalized just yet, don't worry. The pre-order models are already sold until well into next year so there's little chance of picking one up as a Christmas gift. [Rotimatic via HomeCrux]
