Propose a new appliance for delicious grain-based breakfasts

Breakfast is a meal that many people either eat on the go or neglect entirely. Because most people are rushing out the door in the morning, it can be hard to find time to prepare healthy grain-based dishes that provide energy throughout the day.

We are interested in creating a home appliance that allows consumers to load the ingredients for sequential addition according to a recipe and then prepares grain-based breakfasts to be ready when they need it. Clean-up must be quick and easy with minimal waste of raw materials and packaging.
