With all the hype about 3D printers, it was only a matter of time until a 3D food printer came about. Foodini, currently a Kickstarter campaign, is the first 3D food printer kitchen appliance that will print delicious meals. Designed to be used in both homes and professional kitchens the 3D food printer comes with empty food capsules so that you prepare and place fresh, real ingredients in it. It makes cooking easy by taking on the difficult parts of cooking by hand. It can make custom ravioli, crackers, cakes, cookies and more. So for instance you’re making ravioli, so instead of having to make each individual one, the printer will make them all for you.
All you have to do is fill its “food capsules” with fresh ingredients and then input the recipe for the device to create. The foods will be printed in a few minutes and can be eaten right away if they’re made from pre-cooked ingredients, otherwise. If they’re not, just take them out when the printer is done and bake or cook them to serve at family dinners, parties and more. But since food has to be the right texture to print, it means you might need to blend some of the food so that it can be squeezed through the Foodini’s pipes. And unlike other 3D food printers that can only do sweet dishes, this one does both savory and sweet, providing you with more food options.
It has a built-in touchscreen on the front and the integrated application connects to an online community site where you can get additional content like online demos, more recipes and more. But you can also view the community site via your tablet, smartphone and computer for times you’re away from the kitchen. And because it’s sleek and stylish, it’ll complement any kitchen or restaurant. It’ll arrive ready for use right out of the box so that you can start creating delicious meals and treats. The early bird price is still available, which is pledging $999 or more.
