For anyone who has seen a coffee
maker work you will notice steam
rising above it. This is not unlike
how an electric humidifier works.
So, imagine after waking up from
your rest, you go over to your
humidifier and find that during your
sleep you now have a big pot of hot
rose hip tea or chicken
bouillon waiting for you.
The skinny on its features: there
would be a weight sensor so the pot
doesn't overfill and there would also
be a timer so you can set it to make
you something fresh. Also, there
would be a place for a filter above
the pot but that wouldn't prevent it
from being able to make soup or tea.
And yes there would be a hot plate
under the reciptical pot.
How it works: Water can be
channeled through a heating element
part way and then diverted for the
purposes of soup or go all the way
through the element for steam.
||How long would the coffee fester? Brewed coffee over about 20 minutes old is icky.
||Actually, the vast majority of electric humidifiers operate by mechanically atomizing the water, either ultrasonically or by spraying through a grating. The remainder work by passing air over a large wick.
