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.

Frying an egg on the plate, as in the picture, would create a stuck on mess you would have to scrape off the plate. Not sure eating off Teflon is a good idea either. If you use oil, then you have a half cooked greasy mess. Maybe ok to keep hot food hot, but I dont see cooking on it.
