Startup Miso Robotics has unveiled its next-generation Flippy robot and it has already been put to work at innovation partner White Castle. Flippy 2 can autonomously work the entire fry station and perform food preparation tasks twice as efficiently as compared to its predecessor, including basket filling, emptying and returning. Eventually, you may see one of these robots also flipping burgers. Read more for a video and additional information.
During this testing phase, Miso Robotics deployed members to monitor Flippy, and even at peak times, it did not require employee assistance. Plus, with its new AutoBin system, the robot can now cook lower volume and specialty foods such as onion rings or chicken tenders. Each of these bins is capable of holding much as a full fry basket or they can be customized for a kitchen’s specific needs. Once something is put in the bin, it uses artificial intelligence-powered vision to automatically identify the food, picks it up, cooks it in the correct fry basket and places it into a hot-holding area.
- 6-IN-1 FUNCTIONALITY: Air fry, broil, roast, dehydrate, bake and reheat
- EvenCrisp TECHNOLOGY: Advanced technology that drives air flow top down for a perfect golden finish and crispy, tender results every time!
- ONE-TOUCH SMART PROGRAMS: Customizable programs for one-touch wings, roasted veggies, garlicky potatoes, cookies, cinnamon buns and more!
Like all technologies, Flippy 2 has evolved significantly from its predecessor, and we are extremely grateful for the insights collected from White Castle to truly push its development forward in a real restaurant environment. Flippy 2 takes up less space in the kitchen and increases production exponentially with its new basket filling, emptying and returning capabilities,” said Mike Bell, CEO of Miso Robotics.
We learned so much from Flippy and our partnership with Miso Robotics. It’s amazing to see the future of how we provide even better service and even more hot and tasty food to our craving customers happening right before us in real time,” said Jamie Richardson, Vice President at White Castle.
