Single-serve coffee systems such as Keurig and Nespresso have become so popular nowadays that it was perhaps only a matter of time until a similar pod-based concept was applied to other foods. Flatev brings that same one-touch convenience to making tortillas. Simply place a pod containing the dough of your choice into the drawer and push the button, and in about a minute, you have a warm, freshly-baked tortilla (approximately 6 inches diameter). There is even a knob to adjust the desired crispiness. Pods will initially come in your choice of corn or flour with additional flavor options planned (e.g. chili, garlic, cilantro, cinnamon, bacon); they have a shelf life of 6 weeks with refrigeration. Also, the team is testing out formulations for other non-tortilla flatbreads (such as roti) which may be offered in the future. Flatev is currently raising funds via Kickstarter, and one unit can be had for a pledge of $199 (for now—quantities at this price are limited); it will retail for $437. The campaign ends on June 2 with anticipated delivery in August 2017.
