The Robot Coupe R2N is a high-end tool that is used in both professional and home kitchens alike.
While a bit expensive, a budget conscious restaurant owner may be reluctant to shell out the high cost for this item, but almost every professional chef who uses one will tell you that it does the job its supposed to do, and it does it well.
In addition to being incredibly versatile, its also ridiculously easy to use, and with no nooks and crannies for food particles to get stuck in, clean up is a breeze.
What Can You Use It For?
This food processor can be used for the basic chopping and dicing, but where it really shines is in its ability to turn solid ingredients into perfectly smooth sauces, soups, and purees. In addition, it has a super sharp blade that will cut through anything. You can grate cheese, make fast breadcrumbs, and even knead bread dough. Once you start using it, youll find your own creative uses for it, whether at home or in a restaurant.
A Worthwhile Investment
This piece of professional equipment is simply the best there is when it comes to food processing, but if you are on a budget, you cant ignore the high price, which can be as much as 5 times competing pieces.
Whether or not you should put one of these in your kitchen is up to you and your budget. Its definitely a workhorse and you will not have any problems finding uses for it, but you have to be able to justify the cost. Other machines will need replaced, especially if they are used often, but the Robot Coupe will last many years if properly cared for and cleaned correctly. Depending on usage, you will probably have to sharpen the blade, but even if you use it on a daily basis, the blade will likely stay extra sharp for a year. Its also surprisingly quiet considering the speed, so it wont contribute loud noise to an already noisy environment.
Its a solid machine and if you have the money its worth the price. If you do a lot of chopping and pureeing, you will immediately notice the difference between this and your current method whether that method is chopping by hand or another machine. Its a machine you will not regret buying if you can get past the high price.
