Maintaining the food processor in good working condition is one of the most important measures to be taken.
Inspect the machine and all parts regularly to make
sure they are in good working condition.
DO NOT operate a machine that has malfunctioned in any way.
Discard any food processed at the time of
a malfunction and have the machine inspected and
repaired at one of the Robot Coupe Authorized Service Agencies, a list is provided in the back of this
manual. Contact one of these service agencies for all
of your service, parts and accessory requirements.
CAUTION: Your Robot Coupe comes with
a sharp cutting “S” blade and cutting
plates. Always handle with safety in mind.
We suggest that a pair of cut-resistant
gloves be worn when handling the “S”
blade and plates.
Machine Specifications:
The Model R100B is equipped with a high speed motor generating 1/2 Hp which plugs into a standard 120

R100B Operation Manual
III. OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
THE UNIT SHOULD BE OFF EXCEPT WHEN PROCESSING IS UNDERWAY.
It is recommended that the machine be operated on
a 50% duty cycle. This is easily accomplished since
the preparation time (cleaning, coring, peeling, and
loading) takes longer than the processing time. This
will yield the longest life for your machine.
A. INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE WITH
THE “S” BLADE
The “S” blade is used for grinding, pureeing, blending, mixing, of ingredients. There are two ways to
run your machine. Chopping, using a quick start/stop
action, or running continuously for a fine chop or puree.
1. TO CHOP
To achieve a chopped consistency for vegetables,
meats, cheese, etc., fill the bowl 2/3 to 3/4 full with
portions no larger than 1 to 2 inch square. Press the
On then the Off button with a quick start-stop motion.
Continue this process until the desired consistency
has been reached. This quick start and stop, or
“pulsing” motion causes the bottom blade to pick up
the product and throw it into the air allowing the top
blade to chop the product. In this manner you will be
able to control the consistency of the product. HINT:
If you begin with equal size product your end product
will be more consistent.
2. TO PUREE OR FINE CHOP: For a fine puree,
emulsification, or fine chop fill the bowl 2/3 to 3/4 full
with portions no larger than 1 to 1 1/2 inches square.
Begin by pulsing, quickly pressing the on and off
buttons to reduce the size then, press the on button,
and allow the machine to run until the product is finely
chopped or pureed. Some purees may require the
addition of a liquid to obtain the correct consistency.
3. TO CHOP HARD CHEESE: Place uniform 1” to 1
1/2” cubes of chilled cheese up to 1 1/2 pounds into
the bowl and pulse the machine. For powdered
cheese pulse the motor until the cheese is about pea
size then allow the motor to run continuously until you
have a fine powder.
4. TO CHOP ONIONS, CELERY, CABBAGE, ETC.
Quarter onions, and cut other vegetables into 2 to 3
inch portions. Place the product into the bowl up to 3/
4 full and pulse the unit until you reach the desired
consistency. CAUTION: If you overfill or allow the
machine to run continually, the product on the top
may not be cut while that on the bottom will be pureed.
5. TO PUREE OR MIX: To puree, make sauces, or
to mix and blend, place the ingredients into the bowl
(do not overfill), turn the unit on, and allow to run continuously.
DO NOT allow the machine to run
unattended.
If the motor stalls, reduce the amount of product in
the bowl.

R100B Operation Manual
Sharpening the “S” blade
The “S” blade will require sharpening on a periodic basis depending on use. The use of a
dull blade will sometimes give unsatisfactory results. A honing stone is provided with
each machine for this purpose. Follow the directions shown to sharpen the blade, or have
the blades sharpened professionally if you prefer.
1. Put on your cut-resistant gloves
2. Use the Robot Coupe stone or any good
sharpening stone.
3. Hold or clamp the blade flat on the edge or
corner of a sturdy table.
4. With the other hand, hold the stone at a 30
degree angle against the top bevel of one
blade.
5. Pull the stone into the blade edge moving
from hub to tip, several strokes, until the
blade is sharp.
6. Turn the blade over and rub the stone flat
against the underside of the blade to remove
the feather edge formed at step 5.
7. Repeat the procedure for the other blade.
8. Wash the blade before use.

R100B Operation Manual
IV. CLEANING/PREVENTIVE
MAINTENANCE
Wear cut-resistant gloves when cleaning
the blade to prevent cuts.
(1) CLEANING: Proper cleaning of the machine is
one of the most important preventive maintenance
measures the user can employ. The high acid content of food can cause harm to the electrical parts
contained within the housing. Although a seal isolates these elements from the outside, food juices
will tend to seep. If food juices are allowed to collect
on the machine over periods of use , erosion of the
seal can occur. It is recommended that the machine
be cleaned after each operational use.
MOTOR BASE: Cleaning of the motor base assembly must be done with care. First unplug the unit.
A sponging with a cloth lightly soaked (not dripping)
in a mild detergent is acceptable, making sure the
water is not permitted to penetrate the shaft seal or
around the switches. Clean around the shaft seal
with a small brush, taking care to remove all food.
Do not forget to clean the motor shaft. Rinse the motor
base first using a cloth lightly dampened (not dripping) with water then with a sanitizing solution, and
dry the machine with a soft cloth removing all liquids
from seal areas.
Correct cleaning procedures are required to assure
that damage is not inflicted in the cleaning process.
The motor base assembly contains the motor and
electrical components.
DO NOT IMMERSE THE MOTOR BASE
ASSEMBLY IN WATER!
CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS
ATTACHMENTS: Remove and disassemble all attachments before cleaning.
The bowl, blade, and lid should be cleaned per the
following instructions or as required by local health
department regulations.
The bowl, blade, and lid are dishwasher safe. These
parts may be washed in a machine or three tank system pot sink. A stiff bristle brush or power sprayer
faucet attachment is effective in knocking the food
out of the crevices as a pre-rinse procedure. The
washer should have an industry-standard wash, rinse,
and sanitization cycle. Allow the parts to air dry after
sanitizing and before reassembly.
NOTE: The high temperatures of dish machines
will tend to shorten the life of the plastic and rubber parts. Hand washing using a three pot sink
will provide for the longest life of these parts.
(2) PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS
While your Robot Coupe is a ruggedly constructed
machine, overall handling should be accomplished
with a sense of use rather than abuse. Reasonable
care should be exercised. While the machine is reasonably portable, care should be taken not to drop it.
Equally, caution should be exercised in handling all
the parts to assure they are not damaged.
An examination should be made periodically to assure that a seal against food is being maintained
around the motor shaft. With proper care, and depending on use, the seal should last for a year or
more. However, it can and should be replaced whenever wear or erosion is noted, or minimally once every 3 to 6 months. It is recommended that the seal
be replaced by an authorized repair agency.
The blade should be kept sharp. It is not necessary
to have a razor edge however they will need sharpening periodically. Replacement of the dull blade is
recommended.
(3) CARE: Your Robot Coupe is a piece of kitchen
equipment and like all other kitchen equipment, care
and caution should be used when operating. Although
training requirements are minimal, only responsible
individuals familiar with this operation manual should
be allowed to operate your Robot Coupe. .
In general, the best preventive measures that can be
applied are close adherence to the assembly, operation, cleaning, and handling instructions, common
sense and regular maintenance.
