USB Cheese Warmer Thing

Brings soft cheese to room temperature
(+3, -3)
  [vote for,

A USB device to bring brie and camembert to room temperature quickly as I can't use the top of my monitor anymore. I also don't have the patience to let the cheese get to room temperature before consumption.

Not only do they make this, it is currently SOLD OUT. Christ. [tiromancer, Dec 17 2004]

It's very shoddy, and something you could easily bake at home. Though I wouldn't feel safe using it. [tiromancer, Dec 17 2004]


       Not just for brie and camembert; Cheez Whiz, too.

       Is it safe to warm Cheez-Wiz? I'm sure it can't support any kind of bacterial life, but how much pressure can the can handle?   

       One of my friends was once visiting a sister in paris. She (the friend, not the sister) brought back a large wheel of Brie, for me. In her carry on. It spent another day or two unrefridgerated before I got it, and it was still perfectly edibly. It smelled at least as bad as you think, though.

       Yes, tiro, they age cheese to make it better. I'm sure another couple of days in the old ruck sack couldn't have hurt it too much.

       only up to a point

       Brie will heal over if you cut a piece off and wrap it up again. The skin grows over the exposed innards.   

       As for cheez wiz, I recommend microwaving it in the can for about 5 minutes before consumption.
