EatWave Vending, a California-based company manufacturing vending machines, has introduced a new all-in-one hot and cold vending machine to store foods and beverages.

The patent pending machine is fully automatic, refrigerated and comes with an internal microwave cooking unit.

EatWave can quickly heat the food items as well as keep the cold foods and drinks in their state.

Unlike traditional vending machines that can stock only one item, EatWave can store hot food, snacks, and cold beverages, all at once.

The machine is also installed with VENDCheck software, which can be used to modify machine settings, change pricing, monitor temperatures and fault conditions.

EatWave Vending CEO Andrew Preston said EatWave allows vending operators and locations to conserve space and energy by replacing multiple vending machines with our single hot and cold design.

"EatWave is perfect for office break-rooms, hotels, schools, airports and other locations wanting to offer a complete meal for people on the go looking to grab a quick bite," Preston added.

The vending machine will be showcased on 8-9 November 2012 at the Association of California School Administrators (ASCA) Leadership Summit 2012, Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina, in San Diego, California.

EatWave will be available in select countries worldwide with a price tag of $11,995.
