Li Weitai, deputy general manager of Feast Cube, said that the robot chefs can complete one dish in just five minutes. The robots are able to cook 260 varieties of dishes from traditional Chinese food, such as Kung Pao chicken and dongporou, a popular pork dish, to a variety of foreign staples like spaghetti with meat sauce.
"Robot chefs can work very efficiently 24 hours a day, serving food to customers at any hour of the day," said Li, adding that the company's intelligent cooking machines will be used in ordinary people's homes in the future.
"After mass production, the price will be very affordable, so that customers can enjoy convenience and delicious food provided by the cooking robots," Li said.
