Robot Coupe Bread Slicer – The Best Thing Since Sliced Something

By Andrew Liszewski

While Robot Coupe is actually an entire brand of catering equipment, I don’t think the word ‘robot’ is the best way to describe this automatic bread slicer. Just feed a baguette or similar sized loaf of bread into the vertical feeder and a stainless steel blade will cut anywhere from 180 to 360 slices a minute. You can also vary the thickness of the slices from 8mm up to 80mm for some serious ‘Texas toast’ action.

But the lack of arms and the fact that you have to manually feed this thing baguettes just keeps it out of the robot category for me. However if you own a catering business or sandwich shop this could still be a great replacement for a slow assistant, but all that time you save better be used to sell more sandwiches since the Robot Coupe Bread Slicer has a price tag of about $2,700.

    $2700???? OUCH. Seeing as how I purchase maybe 2 baguettes a year, I’m guessing I will personally never see a need for this, but I’m sure there is a need or it would have been produced, right?

    It costs too much dude. Maybe, we can afford it if we will fire 5 of our service attendants. But, I wont exchange on this robo thing to a true human. It cant give you customize sliced bread.
