How it works is, you just turn it on and get it pre-heated to the correct temperature, then pour in the batter into each cooking slot. The center lid turning area will then pop upward on each slot to turn it around 1/4 of the way around. Then after a few rotations the Takoyaki will be done cooking perfectly on all sides without any need for you to do any manual turning.
The automatic electronic Japanese Takoyaki cooking machine will grill a total of 12 Takoyaki balls at a time, takes about 3 minutes to fully cook all octopus ball, and you’ll need to manually shut it off when you think the Takoyakis are done cooking or will continue to turn them.
The self-turning Takoyaki grilling machine is made in Japan, is 100 volts though works just fine on 110 volts, can cook essentially in ball form (pancakes balls, doughnut balls, etc), it weighs 8.33 lbs, and measures 13.3 x 12.6 x 11.7 inches.
