HotSmarts stay still HOT after more than 30 minutes and need ONLY 1 min. preheating (Ideal for Mindful Eating)
i decided to abbreviate the description: This is about the only plates IN THE WORLD that keep food hot; they have a heater integrated; all you have to do is to preheat them for ONE single minute in the microwave oven and they remain still hot after 30 minutes believe it or not. This is a real breakthrough; this means the end of cold bland food.
To see the specifications go to:
Your food will stay hot and tasty throughout your meal; although originally conceived as "Gourmet Plates", they are being used widely for care giving and by people who eat slowly for any reason (There are many good reasons, you should research: "eating slowly").

HotSmart plates keep food hot throughout the meal
HotSmart Plate with heat storing device integrated (Patented), CLICK IT for info and availability
Don't be deceived by the apparent simplicity; this is the best microwaveable heat storing device ever built
The proprietary microwave absorbing material core is extremely efficient and the whole design is patented. This is the only functional improvement to the ceramic plate in history. The material of the core was specially developed for this purpose
There is no other object in the world that remains still hot after more than 1/2 hour by preheating it for ONLY 1 minute in the microwave and on top of that you can handle it safely with your bare hands while very hot (about 200F)
We are disrupting the market with this invention; don't be surprised if a couple of reviews in Amazon say HotSmarts don't get hot enough; those are malicious comments. As you know you can buy with confidence in Amazon.com, there is an A-Z GUARANTEE.

Better than having fire inside the plate
Believe it or not: HotSmarts are "calibrated" to reach a maximum temperature of about 200F in about 5 to 8 minutes after you pull them out of the microwave oven; this delay action keeps food from being overheated or overcooked (eggs over easy, pasta, etc. and steak stays juicy and delicious).
If you preheat a normal plate (lets call it a plate) BY ANY MEANS: In an oven or using any other gadget offered on the market... (assuming those gadgets really worked) it will get cold in about 5 minutes along with the food obviously, while a HotSmart which comes HOT out of the microwave oven will get hotter and hotter and then will keep releasing heat for more than 30 minutes.
A HotSmart stores lots of energy in one single minute and releases it as heat slowly (over an extended period of time) to keep food hot throughout the entire meal.
A HotSmart is a patented "microwaveable heat storage device" embodied as a fine bone china plate; "HotSmart Keep Hot Mugs" are coming in the next shipment.
Will you please like us on Facebook and RT? (I will really appreciate it, I,m the inventor)
HotSmart Mugs work with the same principle as the SUCCESSFUL HotSmart Plates
They keep your coffee hot to the last sip; I don't think I need to explain again; if it works on plates...
THEY DO WORK AS CLAIMED (Actually better than I claim; they will be STILL HOT well after you finish your coffee). I have used them for years before introducing them to the market through Amazon.com.
UNFORTUNATELY a lady (Lori A. Dallman from Tucson AZ) who posted very negative feedback on Amazon.com DID NOT PREHEAT THEM... No wonder the mugs did not work for her. I have been trying to get in touch with her to ask her to remove her comment but she won't respond to any of my mails.
She is probably embarrassed, I did some research on her and apparently she is Christian. She is in the construction business in Tucson, AZ.
She is causing lots of damage with her false testimony (Probably involuntary).
THE MUGS WORK AS CLAIMED or your money back. A-Z GUARANTEE.
Detail of the seal; it shows a great improvement: A double seal
HotSmart plates have been improved, now they come with a double seal (Note red and yellow); RF.5 was developed in house.
Another internal waterproof seal was added (Shown in the detail picture)*
We are committed to continuous improvement And we have also plans for the introduction of plates for specific purposes such as a WLS plate, a steak plate, bowls, coffee mugs etc.
Note the very efficient proprietary heater in the cavity, it absorbs microwave energy and radiates infrared energy or heat; as you can see the energy is trapped inside the cavity and released slowly according to the Stefan-Boltzmann law.(This is why it needs only one minute preheating and stays hot for a long time: More than 1/2 hour)..
*The design may be improved or changed without previous notice
HotSmart is becoming a line of products and MedSuplies; we made bestsellers list in Amazon.com
Due to the SUCCESS of HotSmart Plates (with a heating element integrated) HotSmart is becoming a line of products
Besides their "normal purpose" as gourmet dinnerware...
HOTSMART PLATES ARE EXCELLENT TORTILLA WARMERS (THE BEST, THEY DO WARM NOT INSULATE), THE MUGS ARE THE BEST WAY TO KEEP GRAVY HOT (ACTUALLY... IS THERE ANOTHER WAY?) AND THE BOWLS ARE DESIGNED FOR EASE OF USE AND TO HELP SENIORS MAINTAIN THEIR DIGNITY (THEY HATE TO EAT ON PLASTIC BOWLS THAT LOOK LIKE BABY DISHES).
Although conceived as "Gourmet Plates" almost immediately after their introduction, HotSmart Plates were adopted by caregivers who became very good customers; "baby boomers" (who are now sons and daughters of elders) started giving HotSmarts to their elder parents and in the process buying for themselves (When they confirmed our claims I guess). If you can afford a good steak dinner, you can afford a HotSmart; the difference is that a HotSmart will keep your steaks warm, juicy and delicious for years.
One of our customers defined HotSmarts as "a new eating experience" and I agree (I agree because I have known that to be true ). They are not cheap because they are not mass produced yet, you can buy even one at a time or two and we periodically have special offers (We have been sold out a couple of times, do not assume that they will always be there or that the price will go down dramatically any soon).
HotSmart is shipping plates all over the USA and people have asked for coffee mugs, bowls and have even requested (and suggested) other products. All other products will be introduced through Amazon.com first in the USA, then Europe, China and Japan although maybe not necessarily in that order.
REMEMBER: A-Z GUARANTEE AND CHECK FOR SPECIAL OFFERS. We want people to know about our products, we know you will not go back to cold plates anymore; would you go back to Black and White TV?
It takes an avalanche of truth to bury a few malicious comments and our customers - and sales - have provided that avalanche. HotSmarts have an A-Z GUARANTEE and shipments are increasing. By the way: in the UK they are practically begging me for HotSmarts and as soon as I guarantee that the USA demand is met (In "auto pilot"), Europe here we come (I will need a line of credit and other "small details" but that is peanuts (pecata minuta ha ha) compared to what we've done so far. HotSmarts are here to stay; many people NEED THEM!
We value and use all kinds of feedback but I personally hate liars; If somebody says HotSmarts only get lukewarm I dare that person to put his/her big Pinocchio's nose on a HotSmart even half hour after the HotSmart plate is pulled out of the microwave oven.

What our customers are telling us:
They are surprised that it really does work as we claim (Our claims are many)
CLICK THE IMAGE AT RIGHT TO SEE RECENT FEEDBACK
I had searched for some time for a solution that would keep her meals hot for her. (All those, professional and otherwise, who say the solution to "meal gets cold before finished" is to serve smaller portions should be compelled to wear a dunce cap for at least one week a month for a year or so, until they learn to reserve opinions until they know what they are talking about.)
I think many of various ages have hot-food problems similar to my mother's. She does not eat large amounts, but first it takes her a while to get her food arranged ready to eat, meat trimmed and cut the way she wants it, seasonings and condiments applied, etc. and she does not like anyone else to do it, as she knows what she wants. Then, she has eaten very slowly all her life -- even many years ago, she would be halfway through with her small meals by the time others had finished their large ones. All of which meant that even with prewarmed plates, she still usually ate most of her meal pretty cold.
Serving her food in individual size pyrex dishes in which it had been oven-baked works well for some things, but isn't appropriate for most items.
I have seen comments about the HotSmart plates being flat. They are flatter than some styles in which the outer rim angles up fairly sharply, but no more so than many plates. The outside rim does have a gentle slope, and Mom does not have any problem with food, including items with gravy or sauce, getting off the plate.
The gently sloped outer rims can also be a place to put items that are not supposed to be hot, or not as hot, as the main part of the meal -- sliced fresh tomato, for example.
I had some concern about whether it was safe for the microwave to heat the plate with nothing else in it, so I used the advice concerning heating food on the plate. When heating an empty HotSmart plate, I put a cup full of water in the microwave with the plate and heat for 1 minute and fifteen seconds.
If the plate is heated with food on it, I have increased the time slightly, depending upon what the food was and how much there was, but never more than two minutes, and it has worked fine.
Because of problems others have had, I hand wash and rinse (without immersing) her plate immediately after use, then thoroughly dry it and store it in an 11 inch round Rubbermaid plastic tub, with a dishtowel under it for protection and to make removal easier. So, as we do it, care is a bit more than with an ordinary dish. This may not be necessary for everyone -- depends upon what kitchen storage is available.
I believe that efforts are ongoing to make these reliably dishwasher safe, but even if that never happens, Mom says it is WONDERFUL to eat meals that stay hot all the way to the finish
The plates are super. They are just as described. We are loving having our food stay hot the entire meal. I'm planning to give them as gifts this Christmas. Not Mine tho. Thanks for a great invention, Juan. Regards, B. M., TX
Hi Juan, The hot plate is great, my wife has had Gastric Bypass Surgery and can not eat food fast, so the
hot plate does a great job, thanks so much, also you talked about a coffee mugs, I would like to give you an
idea, make the mug with no less than 12 oz. and with a good size handle, and also a travel mug would be nice to 16 oz. small enough bottom so it will fit in a cup holder. Please keep my e-mail so you can let me know when they are ready. Best wishes,
The plate is wonderful, it does the job just as advertised. The plate comes with instructions on recommended microwave time for the wattage of the microwave. My microwave is 1100 watts so I heated the plate for 1 minute, it was able to keep the food warm for over 45 minutes. A family member is a very slow eater (due to medical problems each meal takes a little over an hour not including dessert) and this plate was able to keep the food warm the entire time. Initially, I was looking for a metal platter/wood tray combo that restaurants use to serve fajitas or steaks to help keep food warm. I saw this and thought I would try it out; I am very glad I did. I think it is much better than the "sizzler" plates since:
1) it keeps food warm for a longer period of time.
2) it can be washed in dishwasher (some metal plates have to be hand-washed).
3) takes up less room in cabinet, do not have the hassle of metal plate and protective outer wood/plastic plate.
4) safer than metal plate since rim of this plate is safe to touch if you follow the instructions.
Plus, it is very pretty and neutral in design so fits with any decor. The only potential down side is that the plate is a little heavy, however, it is still lighter than the metal platter/protective tray combo. I am very impressed with this product and recommend it to everyone who likes their food hot. As I said, buy it and you won't be disappointed.

"Zap and Serve"(TM); that's all you have to do with HotSmarts
You can HANDLE them SAFELY with the bare hands WHILE very HOT
KEEPS FOOD HOT THROUGHOUT YOUR MEAL FOR FULL ENJOYMENT
Your HotSmart plate will remain still HOT after 30+ minutes(More than 1/2 hour) to keep your food hot throughout your meal; it only needs ONE MINUTE preheating in a full size (1200W) mw oven, your food will stay hot all the way through the meal. You will be able to savor your food and enjoy it, with the extra benefit that you will avoid overeating.and obesity (Eating slowly will get you satisfied -not full or bloated- with less calories).
ALSO USED FOR CAREGIVING
HotSmart Plates -Although originally designed simply as gourmet plates to enjoy food are being also used by caregivers for patients that eat very slowly::Elder care, Alzheimers, Parkinsons, stroke, ALS, WLS (Weight loss surgery), etc.
Another important thing you should know is that eating slowly besides helping to enjoy your food better, it also helps avoid overeating and I don't think I need to explain to you how important that is. Please Google "Eating slowly"
Please RT to help us lower the price and let other people know; this is the only functional change to the ceramic plate in centuries (Maybe in history)
Juicy steak on a Hot HotSmart Plate. CLICK THE IMAGE to understand why it makes a huge difference
Simple, prepared at home; the HotSmart plate really makes a BIG difference
Beer is bitter and ice cream is sweeter ... when hot - And your steak tastes better.... on a HotSmart (That's a fact). Temperature affects taste.
Just ask any restaurant owner why do they preheat plates? Unfortunately a normal plate gets cold in about 5 minutes along with the food.on it.
A HotSmart requires only one minute preheating in a full size microwave oven and remains still hot after 30 minutes (Believe it or not). SEE ABOVE how to use.
Click the photo to see larger image; it looks delicious and is a "simple" steak prepared at home (Just add some red wine with your imagination and enjoy it slowly, it doesn't go anywhere ant it stays hot).
HotSmart Plates are the only ones in the world with a solid susceptor (Material that absorbs microwaves) heater integrated; you do not have to fill them with hot water or buy any other accessories, all you have to do is to "zap" them in the microwave oven for only a minute and serve your food as usual, it will stay hot throughout the meal.
The only change to the ceramic plate in centuries (Click image to see the instructions)
Only object in the world that stays hot after 30+ minutes by preheating it ONLY ONE min. - Please RT
HotSmart Plates are actually patented as a "Microwaveable Heat Storage Device"; they absorb enough microwave energy in one single minute to remain still HOT after 30+ minutes (BELIEVE IT OR NOT); actually I am not aware of any other object in the world -let alone a plate- capable of doing this.
The heat is released with a delayed action to avoid overcooking or overheating the food and heat is also released slowly using the Stefan-Boltzmann law. HotSmart Plates have a proprietary core heater that makes this possible.
VERY IMPORTANT: HotSmart Plates can be handled safely with the BARE HANDS by the rim which does not get hot; SEE http://www.HotSmartUSA.com/SPECS
Short story of an invention
Idea, Research, Patenting, etc.See twitter @HotSmart
It all started when the inventor found himself disabled to keep a regular job as a result of a stroke and brain tumor removal operation that paralyzed the left side of his body; a broken hip (right side), recent memory damaged, etc. But this is about the invention and the information given above is only to give a frame of reference to show how this invention was conceived, some people may find this interesting.
Having been born and educated in Mexico, All I wanted was a way of keeping tortillas warm; all tortilla warmers on the market just try to keep tortillas warm by using insulation, but the tortillas have little thermal mass so they do not store much heat, so I decided to keep adding heat to the tortillas but then I thought "I could get a patent" and later I thought: Why a tortilla warmer? why not a plate? Everybody in the world uses plates and everybody loves hot food (and everybody thinks that "a plate is just a plate" -Like in Casa Blanca- which makes it more challenging and hopefully more profitable), so I shifted my focus to designing a plate because the market is larger and everybody believes "a plate is only a plate" but I will also introduce to the market a coffee mug, a tortilla warmer (of course), a gravy boat and other products. In the mean time the plate is already selling through Amazon.com as Instahot 30 min plus HotSmart plate.
If I tell you about it I may put you to sleep, but I will say this: I started putting antennas inside plates, using PCMs (Phase change materials) and producing a lot of smoke in the process; I finally decided to develop my own microwave absorbing material which works great; it absorbs enough microwave energy in one minute to maintain the plate still hot after 30 minutes.
How I keep the plate from breaking due to the thermal shock and how I keep the rim from getting hot for easy safe handling with the bare hands is something I will not discuss here, it is stuff mostly of interest to Engineers only.
this is the first and last thing that I am going to patent personally; I studied and painfully obtained my own patent and I will leave my next patent to Lawyers (I am not planning on patenting anything else by the way , I am a stroke survivor and I am only doing this on behalf of a poor family... mine).
One of my examiners wanted to reject my patent simply because he did not understand it (I want to believe that he was so overworked that he did not even have time to study it, which is very often the case); I told him that I was recording the phone conversation (Which I still have on tape), also threatened to complain to the Director, the Secretary of commerce, etc. I also told him that he was incompetent etc. but when he heard that I was recording his tone changed and I just had to let him save face, he demanded something, I accepted (I should not have because it was unfair) but it was my second office action and was final. Anyway, I got my patent.
NOTE: For the people unfamiliar with the patenting process; dealing with the USPTO (Patent Office) is not like Baseball, two strikes and you are out, this means you get two office actions and the second is final and since the first office action is always negative (Otherwise the Examiner would not be considered having done his job) that's strike one guaranteed. In my particular case the examiner argued that my invention was similar to other inventions that were not even "microwaveable" (I patented a "Microwaveable heat storage device"). I was furious but you have to be very humble with those examiners; they have a lot of power and It was only when he said "strike two" (Remember that that means OUT at the USPTO field and they are the "umpires" not players) that I turned into a "cornered cat", not brave, simply scared.
Developing the product, marketing and sales
The HotSmart plate is already on the market through Amazon.com (Just type: HotSmart) and this is part of the marketing process; the Internet, Google, twitter, Amazon.com etc. have changed so much the rules that I may write about it later if I find out that there is at least a little interest from people about reading this notes. People will be interested only if they see me making lots of money so my future will probably not be as a writer; I say that because when that happens why write? (not because the product is not selling, it is selling and I am getting great feedback from my early adopters).
By the way, the plate is already selling all over the USA, including Florida which of course is not a cold place but I know It will sell great in the Northern states and Canada as soon as they get the word.
This invention is actually a Heat Storage Device becoming a line of products
HotSmart Coffee Mug keeps coffee hot to the last sip. A-Z GUARANTEE (Pay no attention to LIARS)...Click Image
Once the plate was designed making a mug was so simple; I really believe they will sell by word of mouth, they are the best mugs in the world. One mug will sell at least a couple more by word of mouth, There are no real competitors..
REMEMBER: We are disrupting the market; do not believe LIARS probably related to competitors. (Lori A. Dallman does not respond neither my comments nor my mail. She is lying)
A-Z GUARANTEE: As claimed or your money back guarantee
Prevent overeating and obesity by eating slowly
Your food will not get cold on a HotSmart
This is an unbelievable bonus,so it's better that you research it yourself.OR simply click the image; you will find very good information from RELIABLE SOURCES like Harvard, etc.
You can Google "eating slowly" and you will find lots of information on the subject but nobody tells you that your food will get cold, eating slowly will become an unpleasant experience you will never acquire the habit and you will probably fail.
Heat Retentive Plates remain still hot after 30 minutes to keep food warm; eating slowly takes about 20 minutes (A preheated normal plate gets cold in about 5 minutes along with the food it contains. Heat Retentive Plates are your tool for eating slowly, enjoying and getting satisfied with less food without feeling hungry or deprived (Google eating slowly).
Minful Eating May Help You Avoid Overeating
Looking for the most original present ever? For your parents? Friends? (for any occasion)
Everybody loves hot food; you cannot go wrong with HotSmarts (People are even using them to warm baby food)

Start up Texan Company teaches the Chinese how to make better ceramic plates
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PRLog (Press Release) - Oct 10, 2009 - HotSmart plates need only one minute preheating in a full size microwave oven and can be safely handled with the bare hands by the rim which does not get hot; the plates even have a delay action to avoid overcooking or overheating the food, they reach maximum temperature 5 to 8 minutes after taking them out of the microwave oven, a preheated regular plate is cool in about 5 minutes along with the food.
"Heat retentive plates" as they were originally called by the inventor (Another name was "Heat storage dish") were developed and patented by Juan J. Ramirez an Industrial Engineer from El Paso Texas after surviving a stroke and brain tumor operation that forced him to abandon his career in manufacturing.
The inventor offered the license to several companies in the USA who rejected the project; a few were very interested but they practically wanted to steal the idea. The invention is patented in the USA and patent pending in China and other countries.
The plates have just hit the market through Amazon.com as "InstaHot 30 min plus" Hotsmart plates.The name describes the product well but there is lots of information on the internet about the "Hotsmart project", the plates can even help people lose weight by eating slowly.

About Hotsmart: Officially established in El Paso TX in April 2009 as retail seller through the internet, Hotsmart is teaching the Chinese to manufacture its patented products which are being introduced to the USA market through amazon.com; HotSmart plans are to export to other countries from China. Some buyers are interested since early designs were shown at the Hong Kong fair in 2008.
