Supreme Processor

By Cook's Illustrated Published November 2010

Restaurant alums in the test kitchen have always raved about the Robot Coupe, so we decided to give the 12-cup version of this commercial-grade processor a whirl. After putting it through the same battery of tests as the seven consumer models in our lineup, we still can't justify shelling out nearly $900 for one—but we certainly understand the appeal. Equpped with laser-sharp Sabatier blades and simple controls, the Rob Coupe R2N ($872.49) garnered perfect scores in every one of our tests and outclassed the consumer processors in power and performance. If money were no object, we'd snatch up this processor in a hearbeat.
