Company Testing A Fried Chicken Nugget Vending Machine

December 14, 2018


This is a short video of the fried chicken nugget vending machine currently being tested by Japanese convenience store chain Lawson Inc. at one of its Shinagawa Ward, Tokyo locations. The machine can allegedly fry and serve piping hot chicken nuggets in just over a minute. I wonder how often they change the frier oil. The less often, the better -- that's my motto. Of course I also refuse to boil my hotdogs in anything but the same covered pot of water I've had sitting on the back of the stove for four months. My girlfriend thinks it's disgusting, but-- "I've seen him make tea with it." *shrug* I was drunk and feeling extra culinary.

Keep going for a shot of the finished product and a video.


Thanks to Dave R, who agrees the nugget, along with the slice, are the food shapes of the gods.

    Does the giant tendie machine take good boy points as payment?

    Robots: they may not be great, but they sure beat paying teenagers $15/hr.

    This might be great on day one, but I just can't imagine after a week it will be sanitary and is the chicken frozen then plunked in the oil - and what happens when it malfunctions and some kid gets one raw on the inside chicken nugget and contracts salmonella? I'm noping out on this.

    LOL! You KNOW somebody is going to get an order with an extra "nugget" that looks suspiciously like a mouse...

    I’m with younon this one. Considering how “often” ice machines get cleaned, i’m not trusting this. Also, much as i love chicken nuggets, even the one at the 26s mark looks like something i’d nope right out of! Looks like a blob of fat right on top.......🤢
