it would be cool if some one started a business thats like a laundromat but with a oven and stove so you can go in there put some quarters in an oven put your cake in and bake it then go home, also they could have vending machines that have ingredients in them for cooking and baking

http://www.dreamdinners.com/ opposite of this idea [Worldgineer, Jul 11 2005]

       Sorta baked for campsites, except rather than quarters, you have to put in fuel.   

       I think there are all sorts of cleanliness issues before you could make it work on an urban basis. Given that most every house/apartment has a kitchen, why do you see a need for this outside college dorms?

       Baked entirely with okonomiyaki restaurants in Japan. Sit at booth seat, where table is in fact a hot plate, have your ingredients brought to you and heat them right up on the table. Officially, the best tasting food available in Japan.

       There's a chain in the US (don't remember the name - "dream kitchen" or something) that does the opposite of this. You select a recipie, then wander around different bins of food and make it. You then bring this home and cook it in your own oven.

       okonomiyaki is not the same as this. In America, least I know, is that the hibachi grill is close to okonimiyaki.   

       [calum], you like okonomiyaki!

       daseva: that reads as though translated directly from the Japanese.
DrCurry, Jul 11 2005
  

       Okonomiyaki, upon further inpection, is very close to this. How foolish of me just then.
daseva, Jul 11 2005
  

       [daseva], yes I do! Much tasty and fish skins! Pleasure and enjoyment. Autumn!

       What language was the idea translated from? Something without sentences, clearly.

       "but with a oven and stove so you can go in there put some quarters in an oven put your cake in and bake it then go home"   

       No market for this. May as well have a place like a laundromat but with lightbulbs instead. You put a few quarters in and the lightbulb turns on. [-]

       I think it depends on the location. Imagine stopping by a pay microwave next to a park for your next picnic - no more cold picnic food.
Worldgineer, Jul 12 2005
  

       ... and then having the same thing happen when you go to buy your morning paper, then finding a dead but quite fluffy poodle in the dryer at the laundrymat.   

       Yes, terrible things are possible with this idea, but same with many others that exist.
Worldgineer, Jul 12 2005
  

       True enough. (note to self: always decline shrimp from a public Australian barbe')
