Bros!!!!! Give me your honest input on what you think of my idea:
A compact and portable kitchen appliance that will specialize in heating tortilla chips to the flavorful restaurant-style warmth.
The device would be an upright tube with a heated bottom. The consumer would open the lid, pour the chips inside, and press a single on/off button to activate the heated coils as well as a fan underneath them. The fan would blow wind underneath the heated coils, in turn blowing hot hair to warm the chips atop. Once the set heat temperature is reached, the temperature will drop to a very subtle low-baking temperature - this will allow the consumer to leisurely pick up the chips at a relaxed pace, rather than immediately grabbing them upon being heated. There'll be a fixed automatic shut-off timer to avoid hazard.
Ovens, toaster ovens, and microwaves all exist, however seemingly nobody casually uses these for a quick tortilla chip fry-up as it involves more trial-and-error, a potential mess that follows, or heating up the room in case of the oven. My device however will neatly heat up tortilla chips to a perfected set time with no effort.
Hundreds of millions of people worldwide buy tortilla chips, so the potential for the device being a hit for dinners, side snacks, workplace break rooms, parties, get-togethers, is absolutely there.
