Catering Equipment Review Show, Season 2: Robot Couple R301 Ultra

By Phil Scoble

Robot Coupe are the world’s top producers of food prep equipment – they invented  the food mixer in the 1960s and has been leading the industry ever since. The R3101 Ultra is a perfect example of the company’s ethos.

What does the R301 Ultra do? 

R301 Ultra is a processor and veg prep combination machine, which means in this case that the machine can have either a mixing bowl for creating doughs, sauces and finely chopping herbs, or a large attachment allows you to chop large amounts of vegetables.

Who’s the R301 Ultra for? 

This machine is perfect of cafes, pubs and restaurants that serve between 70 and 100 covers. Small businesses can boost their productivity without adding significantly to the footprint of your kitchen equipment.

What does the machine come with?

This model comes with the 3.7litre mixing bowl, the larger continuous feed veg prep attachment, an S cutter, two slicers (2mm and 4mm) and two dicers (2mm and 4mm). Most importantly, it comes with a two year parts and labour warranty – which is practically invaluable!

How does it perform? 

R301 Ultra is a piece of kit that will go the distance – it is quick, efficient and produces great results.

The machine has simple controls – on, off and pulse buttons – that do all you need. The Mixing bowl has a top which allows you to add ingredients safely and easily.

The motor is strong enough to take on tough jobs like making dough, or grating huge amounts of cheese.

The veg prep section has a circular feed and a larger feed for different cuts and types of food – giving you the option to really work through large jobs without concern that the machine won’t be able to keep up!

Conclusion

As with all bits of catering equipment, the better you look after it the better it will perform, so invest in the special cleaning heads that are available, clean it only according to the manufacturer’s guidelines and clean it after every use, and you won’t go far wrong…
