Apple Patented A Pizza Box That Will Keep The Crusts Crispy

Apple Pizza Box Design


You can hate Apple for all the high priced phones that it sells but you can not deny that the company has introduced some of the best innovations in the world, which have brought an exciting change in our lives. While we all look forward to the ideas it has to offer in the tech industry, we never would have imagined the company would do something about our food problems. Pizza is a very serious of our food problems or solutions for that matter, but no one likes a soggy crust. Apple just patented a pizza box design that will keep the crust crispy for you.

Wait! It means no soggy bottom pizza for you if you are an Apple employee. Steven Levy of Wired discovered the invention on a visit to Apple Park in Cupertino, California. Among many other amazing things about the famous $5 billion campus, the most unusual was the innovative pizza box design that Apple had patented back in 2010.

The circular Apple pizza box design prevents sogginess by concentric ridges that elevate the food, and holes that allow the steam to escape. “Allowing such steam to flow away from the bottom of the pizza prevents moisture from becoming trapped between the pizza and the bottom surface of the container and subsequently reabsorbed by the pizza causing it to get soggy.” The box is designed to save storage space as it reads:

“The container includes a lid portion that is coupled to the base portion through a hinged connection such that the entire container is singularly constructed from a single piece of material. A nested configuration is achieved such that the base and lid portions are shaped to receive the corresponding base and lid portions of a second container. Such nested configuration allows for multiple containers to be stored in a nested stack, thereby minimizing storage space.”

Apple employees are getting the first of these pizza boxes, and nothing says you will be getting your pizzas delivered in those boxes anytime soon.
