Keeping Delicious / A special heat insulation mat

Keeping Delicious
Keeping Delicious

Keeping Delicious is a special mat which takes advantage of the characteristics of supersaturated sodium acetate. First, it can gain energy quickly through a boiling delicacy, so that we can enjoy the delicacy without waiting for it to cool down. Then the mat becomes a heater, which provides energy slowly and constantly to keep the delicacy in a proper temperature.
What’s more, the color of the mat responds to the changes in temperature of the delicacy. If the food is too hot, the mat will turns orange as an alert to users. On the contrary, if the food is too cold, it will turns blue in order to remind users to heat the food before eating.
