I took care of my 20 month old nephew today and cooked some food for us. However since the food was too hot he had to wait until it had cooled down a little and since the little boy was hungry he cried the whole time while he had to wait. So I was wondering if there was such a thing as an instant cooling device. The microwave equivalent of a refrigerator. You put the plate into the "macrowave" and it is cooled instantly. I searched on the internet but could not find such a thing. (I wonder if it would be even scientifically possible.)

Your best bet is a freezer. When I take a cereal bowl out of the dishwasher and it's too hot to use, I stick it in the freezer for a couple of minutes and it's well chilled.

With food though, the drawback would be that the freezer chills from the outside in, so the edges might get too cold, and the middle still too hot.

Two words.. Liquid Nitrogen

That's probably a little extreme. What's coming to mind is the flash-freezing process used by food manufacturers. I've never looked into the process, so I don't know if it's anything more than an extreme cold storage.

Another initial thought was to use a CO2 fire extinguisher. You're still faced with the problem of cold on the outside, hot on the inside. But it could be entertaining enough to prevent the crying.

Option 1 (much preferred due to simplicity)
have an age appropriate, room temp appetizer
on hand. Use this to tide over the tyke's gums
and brain until it is time for the real meal,
just like biggie folks do when they go out.

Option 2
drag out a cake pan(ish) size dish
fill with iced water
set too hot dish in water
stir food so hottest part keeps moving to outside
Use option 1 while you continue to stir and test,
stir and test, and wonder why you're bothering
to stir and test, stir and test, stir and test ..

Go to your local electronics or department store and ask for a device known as a "fan." Usually powered by electricity.

Allow little boy to start learning life lessons.
1. Crying doesn't speed things up.
2. Crying won't always work as manipulation.

There is a strawberry store near my house and they have an instant freezing chain.

You only need (some millions dollars and) an enough wide hall to install a freezer capable to make temperature down to -90 C for a few seconds and the move the food to normal freezer (just -4 C).

There's a new machine out called "Not Too Hot For a Tot"
Find it at your local Wall Mart :)

Damn,I just missed April Fools Day!
