Students in the US can now relish their favourite cheesy delicacy through the first-ever 'Pizza ATM' installed at Ohio’s Xavier University.

The pizza vending machine at the university campus University can hold seventy 12-inch pizzas and dispense them fresh and hot in just three minutes.

A pizza can be selected using this 24-hour Pizza ATM machine at the touch of a button. The ATM, after selecting the kind of pizza, slides other options in the oven, cuts it into slices, places the pizza into a cardboard box and ejects the meal.

The pizza ATM, which opens for public on August 10, has a temperature-controlled refrigeration system that allows the pizza to stay fresh.

As per a Tech Times report, the cost of each pizza is around USD 10, with the ATM accepting credit and debit cards, as well as a student card.

According to Jennifer Paiotti, marketing director of XU auxiliary services, it is the "best pizza" she has ever eaten. The ATM has a dependable process that preserves taste and quality — the pizza and its ingredients never touch any part of the machine, French-based company Paline, which developed the ATM, said on its website.

The machine offers full remote communication for custom settings and tracking, real-time email and text alerts, webcam monitoring, remote error and shutdown detection.

The university administration and students are loving this ATM and have given it a thumbs up.
