Conceptual idea of the Kek Lapis Sarawak machine consists of three modules namely Depositor Module, Cooling and Pressing Module and Baking Module. Therefore, patents and journals that have similar functions with these modules are reviewed that look into its advantages. The disadvantages of the design also considered for future design. Hence, the crucial advantages of each module considered are namely improved production rates, increased of hygienic rating, easy to maintenance and portability of a design. The reviewed patents and journals can be considered for the development of Kek lapis Sarawak's machine with some improvisations are needed to meet up the specific requirements of the machine.
