The Flint Lockwood Diatonic Super Mutating Dynamic Food Replicator, or FLDSMDFR (pronounced Flids-em-der-fer) for short, is the machine which creates the "food weather" in the movie animated film Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. It was created by Flint Lockwood so it could make food for Swallow Falls. The FLDSMDFR was originally designed by Flint to be a household appliance for the kitchen, similar to a microwave or combi oven. It converts water molecules into food molecules through microwave radiation. The FLDSMDFR's Radiation Matrix produces the microwave radiation that creates the Nano-Mutation effect, which is needed to reorganized the molecular structure of water into food.

The machine can make water into food. It winds up accidentally orbiting the air above the city which allow for the food to rain down on it when given commands. However it becomes overloaded and begins raining larger proportions of food all over the world, forcing Flint to try to manually shut it down.

In the sequel, it gains the abilities to make live food animals called the Foodimals.
