Vending Machine Dishes out Dishes

 |  |  |  August 19, 2012


I’ve seen some wacky vending machines over the years, and there’s no indication there’s an end in sight to the world’s obsession with buying inappropriate stuff out of machines. In this particular case, we have a vending machine that dispenses dishes.

Why, you may ask would you do this? Well, this machine isn’t loaded with fragile Bone China. It’s actually filled with Corelle dishes which are designed to be chip resistant. Hence, this was actually part of a guerilla marketing stunt to show off how durable these plates are.

I’m guessing the machine has one of those foam pads at the bottom like they have in machines loaded with glass bottles filled with liquids. Though It would be pretty impressive if it doesn’t. Even more impressive would be a bottom tray loaded with concrete and nails sticking out of it, though I’d assume that’s not the case here. Regardless, buying a whole set of dishes this way would be a huge pain in the butt, never mind how to carry them home, but at least it gets the marketing point across.
