Enjoy Lynette Kucsma’s 3D Food Printer

Lynette Kucsma wants to sell her “Foodini”-the first product by Natural Machines, Kucsma’s company.

It is an automated machine that creates homemade meals faster and more efficiently than human hands.

Natural Machines is marketing the Foodini as a 3D food printer.

“When people first heard about microwaves they didn’t understand the technology, but now 90% of households have microwaves,” she says.

In reality, the Foodini isn’t a 3D printer. 3D printers generally run at one speed and handle a single ingredient: plastic, however, Foodini is programmed similarly, but offers multiple speeds and works with numerous ingredients at the same time.

Like pasta, users first select a recipe from the touch screen or send their own to the Internet-connected machine.

They then make the individual components of the dish from scratch and put the components into Foodini’s stainless steel ingredient capsules.

Foodini will go on sale in the mid-2015.

“The demand is so high that we’re thinking about rolling out 1,000 machines for our first run,” says Kucsma.

The device costs $1,300 and will be available online.

As Kucsma envisions it, one day everyone will be able to tap a button on their smartphones when they head home while by the time the user arrives home, there will be hot, fresh ravioli—or whatever else strikes a user’s fancy—waiting she says.
