Skip to comments.Just what America needs: Pizza vending machines
Posted on 06/13/2012 7:11:21 PM PDT by Beave Meister
Ever have a sudden urge for crisp-crusted, ooey-gooey, cheesy pizza? You want it STAT. Not in the time it takes to preheat the oven to 500 degrees for a frozen pizza. Not in the 20 minutes it takes for the pizza delivery guy to arrive. And certainly not in however many hours it would take to make homemade dough and marinara sauce.
Get ready for Let's Pizza, a pizza vending machine that promises to deliver a piping hot pizza pie made from scratch in less than three minutes.
The brainchild of Italian entrepreneur Claudio Torghel, the machine will be distributed by A1 Concepts, based out of the Netherlands. It's expected to hit our shores later this year, according to the industry website Pizza Marketplace. The company is expected to set up its U.S. headquarters in Atlanta.
What is remarkable about the new machine is that it truly makes pizzas to order, including kneading and rolling out the dough. (The above video says the leavening takes place in a blistering hot infra-red oven.) There are more than 200 toppings from which to choose. The machine can even accommodate a variety of dietary restrictions, such as those for vegetarian and Kosher diets.

Can I get one for my kitchen?
Bloombutt will be all over it.
The french fry vending machine lasted about three weeks - I doubt this will have a longer life expectancy.
There is no way a pizza can come out cooked in seconds unless they use something like pizza flavor cardboard.
Mama mia! Does it come with the girl?
Um, yum! Geeks everywhere will unite for fresh pizza from a vending machine.
It must be stopped, I don’t care how many people lose their jobs because of it.
Maybe it's "green technology" - they're recycling those cardboard circles from frozen pizzas. Obama probably gave them $100,000,000.00 in U.S. gov't loans to develop the vending machines.
This was a scam about 10 years ago on the east coast. An ad in the WSJ by Magnum enterprizes. The offered to fly my mom down to Florida to see the ‘factory’ in Orlando. I told them I had a brother in Orlando, he’ll just come and look at the factory. They would NOT give a street address. They were busted a few months later. Most investors lost 10 to 15 grand. The few machines that actually were put into use made people sick as hell.
Better get in at the bottom, before the company stocks explode in value like Facebook’s!
This is the best day of my life!
But it took so damn long (all of about three minutes) that I started buying that Jose Cuervo pre-mix crap that they sell in the stores now. Just pour it over ice and instant margarita. But it was a crappy margarita that made my stomach burn and gave me headaches.
Eventually I decided that taking the extra time to mix a "perfect" margarita was worth it. Pure, clean ingredients that allow you to sip and savor your margarita instead of guzzling it and wincing.
So I guess it will be the same with the pizza pies. The super pizza chains like Dominos, Pizza Hut and Papa Johns make super awful pizza pies. Yet if you take the time to visit a pizza joint that makes real brick-oven pizza with honest ingredients - well, you have a superior pizza pie experience and that's the kind of pizza I shall seek. Not the vending machine pizza. Not the convenience store pizza. Certainly not the cardboard pizza that you eat at Chuck E. Cheese while a hundred kids run around you like maniacs.
Now that’s what I’m talking about!!
Let’s Pizza.....let’s not...
