    Systems, apparatuses, methods, and computer-readable storage media related to beverage appliances and remote communication devices are provided. One example beverage appliance includes a sensor configured to detect an operational characteristic of the beverage appliance and a controller coupled to the sensor. The controller is configured to send a signal indicative of the detected operational characteristic to a remote communication device. One example method for operating a beverage appliance using a remote communication device includes receiving a selection of at least one setting for a beverage operation, transmitting the at least one setting to the beverage appliance, receiving at least one of beverage data and operational data from the beverage appliance, determining when the beverage operation is complete, generating an alert when the beverage operation is complete, and displaying, on a display device of the remote communication device, an indicator of the time since the completion of the beverage operation.

    The inventive food holding apparatus comprises a holding area that accommodates food and warms the food with heat radiated by a bottom surface and with warm convection air. Part of the convection air forms an air curtain having a Bernoulli effect that removes excess moisture from the external surface of the food and maintains the food in a warm, crisp condition. The apparatus conditions food to attain a biologically safe noncooking temperature and to retain its freshly cooked texture and internal moisture for more than two hours. This lets restaurants serve the food longer to its customers, allowing efficient batch cooking and significantly decreasing food waste.

  • 10/29/15--05:00: TWO-SIDED GRILL AND METHOD
  • Two-sided grills are provided having a positively controlled vertical gap between two opposed cooking surfaces, means for detecting initial contact of an upper cooking surface on a food item placed on a lower cooking surface, means for measuring the gap between the cooking surfaces at the initial contact position to determine a thickness of the food item and a food-item type, and a control system for automatically initiating a pre-programmed cooking routine based on the food-item type. The cooking routine includes varying the gap dimension between the platens while cooking the food item, the range or sequence of gap dimension variation being based on either the measured thickness of the food item or a nominal thickness associated with the identified food item type. In other aspect, grills according to the invention may include a lower platen mounted for vertical movement and an upper platen mounted only for pivoting.

    Water bottles and flavor tablets for use therewith. The water bottle includes a container having a closed end, an open end, and a removable lid selectively coupleable over the open end of the container. A straw is disposed through the lid, or attached to the lid. A filter may be disposed within the straw, the filter removing impurities from water as it is drawn from the chamber through an opening within the straw, through the filter. A flavor tablet (e.g., a dissolvable solid including a flow channel disposed therein, or defined between a perimeter edge of the tablet and the straw or spout) can be placed within the straw or spout of the water bottle, downstream from (e.g., above) the filter so that water drawn through the straw passes first through the filter (if present), and then around or through the flavor tablet, flavoring the water drawn therethrough.
