Video: The Robo-Chef Makes Chinese Cooking Easy

Cooking Chinese food? There is a robot for that: made by Japan-based MIK, the aptly named Robo-Chef boasts a number of pretty advanced cooking skills. It prepares various Chinese dishes like stir-fried noodles, stir-fried vegetables, fried rice “automatically” – basically anything that can be cooked in a wok.

MIK says that with the Robo-Chef “everybody can cook Chinese cuisine with no training”. Just place all ingredients you need in the wok and watch the Robo-Chef shake and rotate.

MIK offers the Robo-Chef as a gas type and an IH type, with the former retailing for $10,900. The company says it already sold the robot to buyers in six countries.
