Pizza Box Chimney

Let off some steam.

Pizza, delivery pizza, always seems to arrive slightly soggy.

This is because the steam given off by the pizza cannot escape from the delivery box, which is designed to keep in the heat of the pizza so it doesn't congeal before it gets to you.

No more need this happen to you and your Mediterranean flatbread delight. UBCo's Pizza Packaging Provisions Plant has developed a small, reusable chimney that can be fitted to the thumbhole in the corner of the box, extracting the water from the escaping air, before pushing the hot air back into the box.

Powered by a small Stirling engine of flat design, lying under the bottom of the pizza and on the outside of the box, to take advantage of the heat differential.

       Will my pizza cost more now? Though worth it, your'e right, perhaps.

       Rather than a Stirling engine, we advocate adsorbing the steam onto Calcium Carbide granules, which will remove the moisture and release Acetylene which can then be oxidised by a platinum-black catalyst on the underside of the box to keep the pizza hot.

       ...my chief complaint for any take-out food, so let's put them on other contaiers as well. I hate to order baked fish, to have it arrive *steamed*! +

       Pizza delivery vehicles should have a special DC electric stone-hearth warming oven in the back seat, so the pizza only gets put in the box right before it's delivered to your door.

       For that matter domiciles should come equipped with a trans-wall stone oven.
