A cooking machine, which automatically peals, slices, boils, cooks, washes itself, and disposes the waste

You buy the raw food materials, and desired spices, add them to the machine, and voila!
  [vote for,

Raw products are cheaper than food in a restaurant, and cooking manually is time consuming.

Imagine a machine. Inside the machine, the key components are:

* a pot for cooking the potatoes/rice/buckwheat, with an inlet of optional auto-slicing (in case of potatoes)
* a connectable pre-processing unit for unwashed, unpeeled potatoes, which washes and brushes them
* a pot for processing meat before cooking: a shaker with a sieve and a shape-adapting matrix of electric drills above for recovering meat from bones
* an electric frypan below, for cooking vegetables and meat.
* auto-slicing inlet for vegetables
* water supply and its outlet (to the severage)
* electricity supply.
* tank for spices
* oil tank
* dish washer tank
* paper-dish casette

The machine would cook the food in the frypan and the pot separately, and then open them down, to let the food drop onto the paper-dish. After each food preparation step, them machine would wash the appropriate compartment.

       Or, you could just learn how to cook...

       It's time consuming :-(

       The one I have actually gets better the more I appreciate it. Therefore, deserving though yours may be, I'm not giving a bun.

       Or you could eat prepared foods, which are made with this sort of machinery. Only it's bigger, so you benefit from economies of scale: the food would cost you more if you operated the machine yourself.   

       This would be cool for a restaurant, though, if the customers could watch the machine in operation.

       // peals //   

       Nowhere in your description of this device have I found any mention of church bells.   

       Cooking is a pain in the ass, especially when you have to live gluten-free like I do, and I also like the notion of my food coming out of the machine in a 'casette', so [+]!

       My need for control conflicts with this. I tend to cut vegetables longitudinally, whittle out blemishes and i only peel things whose skin or rind is inedible. I also wonder about the sensual satisfaction of preparing them and unnecessary energy use. However, there are certainly days when i'd like to use such a device.

       Cooking is a way of loving yourself (and the others too).

       See? His lack of preparation showed that he cared little for himself or his victim. Just trying to eat the fresh corpse was going to waste a lot of good meat, and everyone knows that Human Tartar must be ground to be fully enjoyed. This really is an object lesson.
