You know what I hate about waffles? They get cold too quickly. This plate concept would keep my Eggos toasty without having to hit it with the microwave—because the heating element is built-in.
Conductive plates may be a concept at the moment, but all of the elements are available to make it a reality. On the downside, cleaning up the plates may pose a problem, not to mention cords dangling from the kitchen table. However, as wireless power systems come of age, I can see how we would be able to cook entire meals on our plates and keep the food warm without the need for separate appliances.
