Designed as a gourmet plate, it was almost immediately adopted by caregivers for geriatrics, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's patients, AAHPM, ALZ,WLS and in general by people who eat slowly for a large number of reasons (Google: eating slowly). A warming plate? I would not call it that; it is a very hot plate that keeps food from getting cold. I call it simply a "HotSmart", there is nothing in the world like it! Preheat one minute? stays hot 1/2 hour? Safe handling? I dare you to find anything even close to a "HotSmart"
Contrary to what a vice president at wikiHow thinks, people need to know about this product that allows you to enjoy hot food better and is helping the sick and the elderly. We can do it with images. Please RT for relatives, friends and other people who need to know.
We will really appreciate your RTs it and remember:
HotSmart Plates keep food hot! (Patented)
The secret to get the plate very hot in just one minute is a "susceptor" (microwave absorbing material) that HotSmart developed, a clever (smart) design and the Stefan-Boltzmann law.
Something that you preheat one minute and stays hot for 30+ minutes; is this innovative or what? Well, I guess so, ceramic plates had not evolved functionally. Now you can really enjoy your hot food on HotSmart®Heat Retentive Plates
Innovative ceramic (bone china) plate that keeps food hot
What innovation can you incorporate to a simple ceramic plate? after all it is only a plate right? A flat clean and cool (this is the problem) surface on which you serve food... well we apologize for the crowded image below (tell us what is not accurate and we'll remove it). It is not the first time that we show it but it is the first time that we plan to explain in detail. Pay close attention China, this is a Texan Plate from El Paso, TX, USA. Many countries are interested in this "simple" innovation which is really a line of products.(Plates, bowls, coffee mugs, etc).
There are already beautiful plates in all shapes and designs some of which we may adopt.in the future but HotSmart®makes the only innovative plates that keep food hotin the world.
We will start explaining from the upper left corner, ok?
Designed as a gourmet plate (Actually I wanted a good tortilla warmer but that is a long story, The thing is: I succeeded at both), it was immediately adopted for caregivers for the sick and the elderly (Alzheimer's patients, WLS and many others who eat slowly simply to enjoy hot food)
The rim doesn't get hot, it can be safely handled with the bare hands. This is a great advantage, it is very easy to use at home.
The heat is released gradually and with a delay; it will not overheat your food. Maximum temperature is reached about 5 minutes after taking the plate out of the microwave oven (there is a thermal gradient in the plate; Put eggs over easy close to the rim and steak at the center
Yes , you read well, something that you preheat one single minute remains hot for 30 minutesA-Z guarantee at:
Hotsmart® plates were originally developed as gourmet plates; the designer was actually trying to design a tortilla warmer that really keeps tortillas warm and developed a very effective microwaveable heat storing device,; so effective that actually decided to patent it. At the same time he realized that that while tortillas are consumed in many places, the plate is globally used, so priorities changed (it turned out that HotSmart® plates are excellent tortilla warmers (better than anyones on the market today). When HotSmart® plates hit the market through Amazon.com They were immediately discovered by home caregivers that take care of their elder loved ones and Alzheimers patients, the sickWLS, ALS AND many other people who has to or likes to eat slowly.

When you call something "thermal" what comes to mind? To me styrofoam, jackets with lots of insulation, thick socks, "tortilla warmers" which do not warm anything since they do not have a source of heat the term was developed no doubt by marketers. Current "tortilla warmers" are only inefficient insulators (HotSmart Plates are real tortilla warmers).
Marketers are experts in conveying an idea even if the idea is false or the product is hazardous to your health. Just watch "madmen" the series -which is good as entertainment by the way- to see many examples of dishonest marketing .By the way: Is there such a thing as honest marketing?
Politics is marketing, whoever spend more money on advertising usually wins and that's why some from both parties spend lots of time in fund raising (How did I get into this mess?).
HotSmart Plates are Thermal Plates
(but use a better technology than insulation)
OK, we did not want to call HotSmart Plates"thermal" plates because that normally conveys the idea of insulation;HotSmarts are based on a different, simple but very efficient technology Storing lots of microwave energy in a very short period of time and releasing it over an extended period of time at a rather controlled rate (taking advantage of the Stefan-Boltzmann law and other laws of thermodynamics).
Call them thermal plates but remember...
(We have always called them Heat Retentive Plates)
So, you can call HotSmart Plates"thermal plates" if you wish (since they deal with thermal energy and thermodynamics) but they are not insulated plates, after all: How can you insulate both sides of a ceramics plate? And even if you could, how can you insulate the food? The food has moisture that evaporates, which in physics is called a change of phase, this change of phase "steals" heat from the food and renders it cold and bland.
HotSmarts keep adding heat to food
What we need is to keep adding heat to the food to compensate for heat losses but without overheating or overcooking the food. HotSmart Plates do all of this because they have a delay action engineered in the design and despite the fact that they get HOT, they can be easily and safely handled with the bare hands. The rim does not get hotthey are SMART plates Our brand name HotSmart®is not a coincidence.
Temperature has an effect on flavor and restaurant owners know it (Google it if you wish)
"Beer is bitter and ice cream is sweeter when hot... and food tastes better on a HotSmart"
(We are disrupting the market and competitors get mad, pay no attention to lies).
These Gourmet hot plates are also used by the elderly, Alzheimer's patients, the sickand people with special needs and disabilities of all kinds. In general by people who have to eat slowly or simply to enjoy hot food.
On the contrary, thanks to you! for taking the time to write
(As the inventor I'm really grateful)
Developed as a gourmet plate, it was soon discovered by many people with special needs and now it is widely used by people with pre-diabetesand diabetes (eating slowly helps prevent overeating, obesity and all nasty things related to obesity) and HotSmarts keep food hot). used also by home caregivers for their elderly loved ones (an 86 year old mother said: "best present ever"), Also widely used by people who had WLS (weight loss surgery), the sick, people with Alzheimer's, stroke survivors,(I, the inventor survived a stroke and a brain tumor myself).
Enfin -as the Frech would say- any person that really likes to enjoy hot food or who for any reason likes to or has to eat slowly, now there are HotSmartsto keep their food hot.
NOT MASS PRODUCED BUT AVAILABLE . Ideal for caregiving Alzheimer's patients, the elderly, the sick, people with mobility problems and in general all special needs people.

Heat Retentive Plates (HotSmart Plates) Allow you to eat slowly and really enjoy your hot food but this has an extra benefit:It helps prevent overeating; please Google "eating slowly" so you understand why and by all means read Harvard on eating slowly
Heat Retentive Plates are also Ideal for the elderly, Alzheimer's patients, the sick and in general for all special needs people who eat slowly. They have been called "A blessing", "A God's send", "Best present ever" said the 80 year old mother of one of our customers.
Initially developed as gourmet plates, things evolved. The inventor is a stroke and brain tumor survivor who started designing a tortilla warmer and decided a plate would have a larger market; he ended up with the best care giving plate in the world and we use it as tortilla warmer too. (We claim it is also the best tortilla warmer in the world)
HotSmart Plates are the ONLY patented HEAT RETENTIVE PLATES on the market; they use the Stefan-Boltzmann principleand patented technology. What does this mean? The sketch below helps explain everything. See also HotSmartUSA.com
For how to manufacture HotSmarts you need to see previous postson this blog, andpatents are public domain (License required for the USA). It is a great steak plate too and please allow me to repeat: Ideal for caregiving (Alzheimer's, Parkinsons patients, special needs, the elderly, WLS patients,etc.); baby boomers love them.
This is how it works
(it is basically an energy trap)
Although not mass produced yet; it is available at Amazon.com click here
HotSmart Plates use a core of a specially developed -proprietary- microwave absorbing material
This core is enclosed in a cavity in the plate
The upper and lower components are basically transparent to microwave radiation
The core gets very hot and radiates in the infrared range of frequencies (heat)
The Stefan-Boltzmann law regulates this radiation
Both Microwaves and infrared radiation are electromagnetic radiation (Only different wave length)
HotSmart Plates need only ONE minute microwaving (1200W) and stay hot for over 30+ minutes (over half hour) Believe it or not!
There is a big difference between a simple thick, heavy plate and a HotSmart Heat Retentive Plate.
