Company begins selling 3D food printers for 2014 delivery
The future isn’t so far away as a company claiming to have combined technology, food, art and design created a 3D food printer available for purchase next year.
The “Foodini” won’t be a total replacement for the chef at home, but is more likely to produce edible designs and prepare some foods in specials shapes that can in turn be cooked.
Natural Machines is already taking orders for the $1,300 printer which it says will be available in mid-2014.
Demonstrations show the machine is loaded with capsules of fresh ingredients, either prepared with a food processor or purchased separately, to print three-dimensional food one thin layer at a time.
GizMag.com says the machine makes sauces, dough, batter, purees, meat and veggie fillings, chocolate and candy.
Lynette Kucsma, co-founder of the firm who worked as a PR manager for Microsoft, told The Telegraph retail food stores have shown interest in purchasing the machine. Kucsma says the Foodini completes the food preparation activities a chef can find repetitive and time consuming, like forming dough into breadsticks or forming individual ravioli.
