Yes, you CAN 3D- print ravioli--and a ton of other home cooked meals

Strictly speaking, I'm sure many of us would prefer to eat a home-cooked meal than to have to order out. It's delicious, it's healthier, and you can control the portions however you want. But darn it if it just isn't so difficult and time-consuming to cook something delightful!  So we have an entire industry of kitchen appliances and whiz-bang gadgetry all targeted to make cooking faster, easier, more convenient. But seriously, 3D printing your food?? Every decent kitchen today has a microwave oven.  Will every decent kitchen of the future have a 3D printer too?

Commercial kitchens, bakeries, and confectionaries are using 3D food printers to save time and effort. Many commercial industries like Foodini uses this technology. Like they enhance a birthday party by making a 3D, attractive birthday cake just using 3D food printer just by mixing ingredients like flour, egg, sugar etc. with a robotic hand.

If I could choose between 3D printer and microwave,I'd always choose 3D food printer. Oh my, I think I'd lock myself in house and spend my life printing chocolate decorations and wouldn't get bored like ever lol

I understand how 3D printing works, but how can a printer create food? I've looked it up, but I haven't found anything that explains it very well.

There's no any complete video made by anyone yet. What I found a pastry/cake making video where mold boundary is used for the parting layer. Ingredients like flour, eggs, sugar, salt are mixed into the device....

Try searching for 3D pizza on YouTube. You put all the ingredients in a printer and it does the rest. Pretty impressive!

I had searched about on Youtube typing '3D Pizza'. Unfortunately, there is no video where @ethaan wanted to learn about the working principle of 3D food printer. May be #Foodini will make a reference video soon.

Well that is convenient lol. Sure it takes away the actual cooking part, which some people find therapeutic.. but whatevs it's cool

These 3D food printing are usually used by restaurants, backeries and some factories. Very efficient and cost effective for them but not for home use. Unless you're rich.

I'd still prefer the hand made food rather than machine made food.

I wouldn't mind eating robot-made or 3D printed food in restaurants as long as ingredients are the same as ones they would normally use. I would expect prices to drop tho.
