Mealtime Machine / Warm tray

Mealtime Machine
Mealtime Machine

‘Mealtime Machine’ consists of heat wires inside the tray, so it can maintain a constant temperature like an ondol. It allows you to eat a warm lunch until meal is over at a convenience store.
'Mealtime Machine' is a new coinage that combines the words 'dinner time' and 'time machine,' meaning it allows the time of food to flow slowly during a meal.
'Mealtime Machine' is available for rental at convenience stores. Lending trays at convenience stores not only encourages consumers to clean up after meals, but also improves the human rights of employees.
