Pastry chefs, restaurateurs and event planners and anyone who has a passion for the kitchen - rejoice! The future is here with ChefJet™, a series of 3D kitchen-ready printers for edibles. The first two printers, which can print in milk chocolate or sugar in three flavors: mint, cherry and sour apple, are the monochrome, countertop ChefJet 3D printer and the full-color, larger format ChefJet Pro 3D printer.
Early feedback characterizes ChefJet as the must-have companion for the professional baker, cake master, and high-end event and restaurateur. Equipped with The Digital Cookbook, easy to use ChefJet software for the non-CAD user, the ChefJet printers enable stunning edible prints to be incorporated into any professional kitchen, effortlessly. The ChefJet series of printers was showcased for the first time at the 2014 International CES in Las Vegas a couple of days ago. “Food is an incredible platform for creativity, experimentation, and celebration and we are thrilled to place these powerful 3D printers in bakers and chefs’ kitchens,” said Liz von Hasseln, Creative Director Food Products, 3DS. “We invite leading pastry chefs, restaurateurs and event planners to join us in bringing 3D printing into the kitchen.” The ChefJet 3D printer is a monochrome, countertop sized printer with a generous build volume of 8x8x6” making it ideal for single color confections and cake toppers. ChefJet printable materials come in a variety of recipes, including chocolate, vanilla, mint, sour apple, cherry and watermelon. ChefJet is expected to be available in the second half of 2014 and will be priced in the sub-$5,000 range. The ChefJet Pro 3D printer is a full-color, large format printer with a build volume of 10x14x8”. ChefJet Pro printable materials also come in a variety of recipes, including chocolate, vanilla, mint, sour apple, cherry and watermelon, all of which can be printed in full-color. ChefJet is expected to be available in the second half of 2014 and will be priced in the sub-$10,000 range. Your thoughts?
