It's Raining Cheese

grind cheese and cover food with it
  [vote for,

"It's Raining Cheese" is a powered device for use in the kitchen that is capable of coating anything placed within its confines with a layer a of grated cheese.

There's how it works:
At the front of "It's Raining Cheese" is an opening large enough to permit the insertion of a variety of different types of food, from single slices of bread, cream crackers etc, to entire pizzas. On detecting this new presence, a continuous rain of cheese begins to fall from the inner ceiling of the apparatus. This event occurs because the device's internal grinder and conveyor belt have been activated. Excess cheese is simply recycled inside the machine as it falls though the grill under the food receiving tray.

As a refinement, a simple knob permits the selection of 3 basic varieties of cheese: parmesan, cheddar or mozzarella.

"Large or fine particles" is the other control option. Cheese coating may be heavy or light according to the length of time the food is exposed to the rain of cheese.

Deluxe version features adjustable strobe light for the added drama of motion freezing the cheese particles in mid descent.

       Dibs on not cleaning this.

       I assume this is mounted inside the fridge so you don't have to take the cheese out and clean it every time you us it.

       This could be made more efficient with explosives. What's needed is a vast block of cheddar attached to a ceramic plate with various small shaped charges bonded to its surface. A camera detects the shape of the bread or other item to be cheeses, and detonates the appropriate set of shaped charges to simultaneously melt and eject the cheese, perfectly coating the target.

       // This could be made more efficient with explosives //   

       More efficient, probably not. More entertaining, definitely. Previous impromptu research using a 38mm flare pistol and a block of catering cheddar entirely disproved the theory that it is possible to improvise a low-lethality projectile weapon typical of the sort of device that The A-Team are frequently portrayed as using. It's also incredibly difficult to clean up the pulverized cheese, and the smell lingers for months.

       Cats. Lots of cats.

       //small shaped charges//   

       I think the brief was to coat the target with particles of cheese, not to pierce it with high-energy projectile fondue.   

       Toast would be unsalvageable, and even a pizza base would spall, would it not?

       I wonder if the Venn diagram for cheese puns and fish puns has any region of overlap?
MaxwellBuchanan, Nov 29 2018

       The only place you'll find that information is in the Necronomicon ... Olaus Wormius' Latin version, as printed in Spain in the seventeenth century, not Dr Dee's English version.

       //cheese puns and fish puns// Cheese and fish, like the farmer and the cowboy, can be friends. After all look what happened when a rabbit and a block of cheddar cheese spent time together in Wales.
xenzag, Nov 29 2018

       Yes, but that was in Wales, where the normal diet is seaweed and slate.
MaxwellBuchanan, Nov 29 2018

       Of course, in the posh restaurants it's served with rain sauce.

       How do you clean up the pulverized cats after unexploded ordinance has been eaten?
RayfordSteele, Nov 30 2018

       //100% recyclable//   

       Sadly no. They degrade somewhat with each cycle. I think it has to do with the length of the strands.

       You're just jealous that you didn't think of it.

       instant powdered milk does not taste like cheese but perhaps you could have a 10 gallon thing of milk gradually go down a tube with a laser at the tip and a gradually rotating plate to make aged cheese droplets that eventually find their way to the exit rotating plate.

       // make aged cheese //   

       The production of cheese is a fermentation process; a laser would be, at best, unhelpful.
