Swanky High-tech Serving

Did you know 12% of food born illnesses come from improper temperatures? Sure it may have been cooked but often times food is left out on a table for guests to serve themselves. In just one hour, as the food reaches room temperature, bacteria can run rampant. That’s where the Fête concept serving plates come in.

Using thermoelectric tech, the plates are able to maintain food inside the included bowls to optimum temperatures be it hot or cold. There are also a series of icons you activate to indicate what main ingredients are in each dish so guests know what to avoid should they have allergies.

Both the plates and bowls are made of tough polycarbonate so they’re totally dishwasher safe. If there’s any food left, just pop on the included glass lids to stow away in the fridge.

It’s just a concept for now but I can totally see this selling boatloads at Crate & Barrel.

    Great idea… but where does it draw it’s energy from ? i wouldn’t want cables running all over my dinner table esp during a party… messy and not elegant…. instead of the fixed icons… how about a oled screen embedded just underneath the chassis, like the new mobile phones we see around…. that will be more versatile and can show more information than the fixed icons.

      OLED screens, if I’m not mistaken, are relatively expensive. Also I don’t know very much about electronic engineering but I would guess that an OLED screen wouldn’t be “dishwasher safe”, any engineers out there can correct me if I’m wrong.

    how about selling the concept with the table? the table can be connected to a heating unit & the plates when kept on it heat up. of course to avoid burning your hand there will be certain areas you can place the plates…

    or probably combine this idea with –

    Great idea, keep it simple and clean. It may be a good idea to make the entire top removable as well as the serving dish. The part where the dish makes contact with base should be aluminum to transfer hot or cold from the thermoelectric modules. You can include a rechargeable lithium ion battery inside the base unit to make it wireless when desired.

    If this is just a concept at this point, I would like to suggest the Kickstarter website to help take it to market. I would be happy to help if you need.
