Vending machine that cooks from scratch (as in, peels the potatoes, slices the carrots and braises the beef)

Timmy: Do not look for a vending machine that cooks from scratch (as in, peels the potatoes, slices the carrots and braises the beef) anytime soon I foresee a couple of barriers this type of device: Sanitation, temperature control and related food safety issues. Extended processes, even though automated, mean longer delivery cycles and the vending advantage is fast and convenient delivery. Vended products are not usually served up with candlelight and violins. Frankly, I do not see the need anyway. There are lots of vendable microwaveable packaged meals and sandwiches available that are of excellent quality. Advances in the packaging microwavable foods have been a big plus factor for the quality of vended foods. Absence of clear, concise cooking instructions on the package can be an issue. Failure to follow the heat and time instructions will adversely affect finished product quality. A little consumer education is always beneficial when new products are introduced. Keep the new ideas coming. Best Regards,

Tom
