Kitchen robot Flippy 2 | Increase efficiency in the QSR sector
Miso Robotics, a start-up company that is transforming the foodservice industry with robotics, revealed their newest model of their Flippy: kitchen robot Flippy 2. With the help of all the learnings at one of the restaurants of the QSR brand White Castle of Flippy 1, the newer model takes over the work for an entire frying station and is able to perform twice as much food preparation tasks compared to the previous model.

Increasing the work efficiency with kitchen robot Flippy 2
Back-of-house positions at quick-service restaurants have historically been labour-intensive, physically demanding and can be hazardous given the proximity to hot oil and grills in compact kitchens. Flippy 2 looks to alleviate these pain points and create a better working environment for its human co-workers, and maximizing the kitchen’s efficiency.
“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.
Flippy 2 is even better with added functions
Flippy 2 features the brand new AutoBin™ system for lower volume and specialty foods like onion rings, providing restaurants an even more complete frying solution. Each bin can hold as much as a full fry basket, be customized for a kitchen’s specific needs and be delineated for individual products like vegetables and fish to prevent cross-contamination.
Once the product is placed in the bin, AI vision automatically identifies the food, picks it up, cooks it in the correct fry basket and places it into a hot-holding area. Removing the human transfer tasks reduces overall human-to-food contact, decreases potential hot oil drippings and burns and ensures a complete closed-loop system where Flippy 2 operates on its own. This increases productivity with 30% (or around 60 baskets per hour). Check out the video about this kitchen robot, the text will continue below the video.
A sleeker design for kitchen robot Flippy 2
Flippy 2 also features a new, sleeker design that takes up less space within the kitchen – including a 56% reduced aisle intrusion, 13% height reduction and less overall cleanable surfaces.
“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,” said Mike Bell, CEO of Miso Robotics. “Flippy 2 takes up less space in the kitchen and increases production exponentially with its new basket filling, emptying and returning capabilities.” In addition to White Castle, Miso Robotics has several other pilot agreements with leading national brands in place.
