Washington: Now, you can just print out your favorite dishes like spaghetti, burgers and pizzas, with help of a new 3D printer machine called Foodini.
Introduced by Natural Machines, a Barcelona-based startup, the machine uses the same technology as a 3D printer, and deploys edible ingredients squeezed out of stainless steel capsules instead of plastics, said Lynette Kucsma, co-founder of the company, the CNN reported.
Kucsma added that the only tiny issue was that with plastics there was just one melting point, whereas with food it was different temperatures, consistencies and textures.
Foodini, which is priced at around 1,000 dollars, has been described as a mini food manufacturing plant shrunk down to the size of an oven, can print a wide range of dishes, from sweet to savory.
Kucsma explained that there was a touchscreen that connected to a recipe site in the cloud, and users would also be able to control the device remotely using a smartphone, and share their recipes with the community.
He added that they had tested the machine and the food was liked was everyone.
Though initially the printer was targeted mostly at professional kitchen users, consumer version was soon to follow, and the machine would be available in the market in mid-2015.
