If you have ever made a grilled cheese sandwich and didn't eat it straight away, you know how soggy they can get and how quickly crunchy becomes a soft mess. This is a big problem for a restaurant that makes all sorts of grilled cheese sandwiches for delivery called The Melt. Crispy, crunchy goodness at the store can be soggy and nasty in short order.

To combat this problem the company has come up with a Smart Box that is designed specifically to keep the sandwiches crispy, crunchy, and just as good as when it came off the grill during it's roughly 30 minute journey to your door. The Smart Box was created by former Flip Camera founder Jonathan Kaplan.

 

The challenge in designing the Smart Box was figuring out how to create airflow to prevent moisture build up. The Smart Box has gone through several iterations and the current one can keep the sandwiches fresh and hot for up to 30 minutes. The Smart Box has a heating element and fans that trigger when the temperature gets too low or the humidity too high. The Melt currently has 15 locations in California.
