The World’s First Ed Hardy Designed Pizza Box [VIDEO]
Scott Weiner from New York City has an unusual collection. It’s not marbles or snow globes, but pizza boxes. That’s right, Scott likes to collect pizza boxes from all over the world and analyze their construction to determine which pizza box is the “best.” It’s strange, we never considered that one pizza box could be better than another, but Scott proves that it’s possible.
In this video, he demonstrates why a pizza box from Rossopomodoro in NYC tops every other box he’s encountered. First, it has 17 ventilation holes. He points out each vent with increasing enthusiasm, but we’re just left there thinking, “Doesn’t that make the pizza get colder faster?” It’s as if he read our minds at that moment because right after he acknowledges each vent, he goes on to explain the benefit of so many holes as well as the way to counteract excessive cooling of the pizza. The vents act as windows for steam from the pizza to escape from the box to prevent “sogification of the crust,” as Scott says. But in order to make sure the pizza doesn’t go stone cold in record time, the inside of the box is lined with reflective, heat retaining polyester that warms the pizza while still letting out the steam. Very interesting!
Scott’s collection may seem a little bizarre but we have to give him credit: he definitely knows what he’s talking about. At the end of the day, we feel that it’s best to be passionate about something rather than nothing at all. Check out Scott’s strangely informative video below!
