This Bag Lets You Cook in the Washing Machine

Forget microwave dinners. The future is all about cooking a nice dinner while you wash your clothes. For a project at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Tel Aviv, student designer Iftach Gazit invented a food bag that can cook food in a washing machine.

It is called the Sous La Vie, because the bag uses the sous-vide method of cooking, meaning that the vacuum-sealed ingredients are steamed over a long period of time. Assuming you wash with hot water, your whites will get white and your meal will be ready when they are.

Instead of following a sous-vide recipe and cooking a piece of meat at 58˚C for two and a half hours, just set your washing machine to ‘synthetics’ for a long duration programme,” explained Gazit. “Cooking vegetables? Set your machine to ‘cotton’ for a short duration programme.

The bags would come with fully packaged meals and sides, with instructions and nutritional information that look like clothing labels. How does the soap and water stay out of your meal? The bags are made of water-tight Tyvek.

Obviously this is just a cool concept, but maybe one day we will all be dining at the laundromat. It is a great idea, because who has time to wash and cook these days?
