    I thought when you were nuking the plate, you'd unrelease the suction and the part at the top that creates the suction, would also in turn be your vent when nuking. Could be wrong though, but yeah, you need a vent or you are going to have issues.

    I'm wary of nuking any kind of plastic along with my food.

    Yeah...his idea isn't that much better than the microwave plate covers already on the market. Having it seal is neat, but how many plates could you really put into your refrig anyways?

    The other sizes (especially the cake one) were pretty cool though.

    I was thinking as it became clear it was a good product but you did not want to work with the guy that maybe they would buy it from him. There have been instances in the past where the sharks have said, "I will pay you $X and give you x% of profit for you just to go away and I will run it." That seemed like the deal to make.

    btw...I do have to say that I really have enjoyed the Sharks going at each other this year. I like that better than them just ganging up on the guests.

    Robert (the guy on the far right) should just become the host/moderator at this point as I can't even remember the last time that he has made an investment.

    i think the application would be in areas where flies are a major problem due to an abundance of attractants, like a stable.... or maybe a dog park...

    also, he should've emphasized a different attractant, he mentioned chicken bones... it might have useful application at a picnic or any outdoor event with food.

    You must never eat TV dinners, or have zillions of plastic "microwave safe" bowls, etc.

    1) attract flies
    2) they get stuck to the cone
    3) PROFIT (not really)

    Sure, it sounds "gross", but I thought it was semi-clever.

    I don't eat TV dinners and if something is stored in a plastic container or "tupperware" I put it on a plate before I reheat it in the microwave. Some paper plates have a plastic coating so you have to be aware of that too. Many paper towels are fabricated with plastic also.

    You could have used another attractant for the flies. I don't understand why the guy said it had to be poo. Couldn't it be anything flies are normally attracted to?

    The guy works in a barn/stalls. He wasn't thinking about mass appeal, just what works for him.

    Indeed, I've heard honey works pretty well. Vinegar not so much.
