is inserted in the chosen opening by removing the
pusher with one hand and then depositing the food
into the chute with the other hand. The pusher should
then be used to push the food through the opening.
DISASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS: Simply reverse
the steps outlined in the assembly instructions with
the power cord unplugged from its wall socket.
ALWAYS REMOVE THE CONTINUOUS
FEED LEAD BEFORE REMOVING THE
CONTINUOUS FEED ATTACHMENT.
OTHERWISE, THE SAFETY PIN CAN BE
BROKEN, PREVENTING MACHINE OPERATION.
A. INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE OF THE
CUTTER BOWL
The cutter bowl attachment is used for grinding, pureeing, blending, mixing, of ingredients. With the
power switch off and the bowl and blade secured in
place (per previous instructions), you are now ready
to add product to the bowl. There are two ways to
run your machine. Chopping, using a quick start/stop
action with the pulse button, 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
pulse button until the desired consistency is reached.
If the motor stalls, reduce the amount of product in
the bowl.
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 the machine 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

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.
7. Repeat the procedure for the other blade.
8. Wash the blade before use.
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.
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. 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 a 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.

Operation Manual
B: INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE OF THE
CONTINUOUS FEED ATTACHMENT:
The Robot Coupe Food Processor will slice, grate,
shred, and juliene. These processes will be performed
in a matter of seconds. Because of the speed of the
process, it is necessary that the operator perform preliminary steps before turning the machine on. Food
preparation, feed chute loading, and availability of a
receptacle for receiving the finished product are some
of the steps to assure positive control of the processing operation.
Food preparation will be required to assure that the
produce will fit a feed chute with the pusher covering
the product. Additionally, according to personal preference, some products may or may not be cored or
peeled. Feed chute selection should be made depending upon the product to be processed. As an
example, good consistency of small round produce
(carrots, cucumbers, etc.) necessitates use of the
small feed chute to allow better operator control. Use
of the larger port for this type of produce may result in
an undesired finished product, e.g., slicing with the
grain. In general, more control of the processing operation can also be obtained by filling the selected
feed chute and placing the pusher in position before
turning the machine on.
Adherence to certain operational techniques will also
enhance the processing operation. For instance, a
consistent pressure with the pusher upon the produce
will yield a consistent output. Application of more pressure will increase the thickness of the product, e.g.,
thicker slice, while reduction in pressure will result in
a finer product. However, do not apply enough pressure to stall or slow the motor. This will cause damage to both the plate and the motor. If no pressure is
applied at all and the produce is permitted to bounce
around, an inconsistent product may result. When
the pusher has settled fully in the feed chute, press
the off switch and re-load the entry port for a repeat
process.
DO NOT remove the continuous feed lead
when the motor is running. Wait until the
motor has come to a full stop.
DO NOT attempt to run frozen products
through the cutting plates.
DO NOT put anything other than food
products in the feed chute.
Wear cut-resistant gloves when handling
the cutting plates.
Keep hands out of the feed openings.
Always use the food pushers.
(1) Slicing Operation: When preparing food to be
sliced, make sure the food will fit into the proper feed
chute. Produce such as carrots, cucumbers, etc.,
should be “squared” at both ends. This will provide a
consistent slice throughout the whole product. With
cabbage, lettuce or any product that has an undesirable core, the core should be removed. Medium
size heads of lettuce or cabbage may be cut into
thirds to fit the feed chute. It is also suggested that
the rounded half be squared to permit a consistent
cut. The rounded portion can be dropped into the
chute at the end and with no pressure applied, it will
normally be processed uniformly. Larger heads of
cabbage or lettuce may be more effectively processed
if they are cut into fourths. When the preparation has
been accomplished, fill the selected feed chute, place
the pusher in position, turn the machine on and observe the results.
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.

R2N and R2N Ultra
Operation Manual
(2) Grating Operation: Again, prepare the product
as to allow insertion into the feed chute. Consider
which chute will be used. As an example, placement
of carrots horizontally in the large chute will result in
a long grated product, while vertical insertion in the
smaller chute will result in a short grated product. It
is recommended that chilled cheese be used when
grated cheese is desired, otherwise a gumminess may
result. A fine coating of cornstarch applied to the
cheese before grating will aid in keeping the finished
product separated. A fine coating of cornstarch will
not be visible and is tasteless. Grating cheese is one
of the most trying processes and may cause overheating of the motor if not done in the recommended
manner. It is recommended that a slight pulsating
pressure be applied with the pusher while grating,
alternating slight pressure on the pusher—no pressure—continuing in this manner until the block of
cheese is completely grated. It is recommended that
the cheese be prepared to fit the opening in volumes
which will permit motor cool-down time during long
production runs.
(3) Julienne Operation: Insertion of the product to
be cut must be horizontal if a long stick is to be
achieved, e.g., squash sticks. Vertical insertion will
result in finely chopped products, e.g., chopped celery. A finely chopped onion product may also be
obtained with this operation.
Plate Utilization
The Robot Coupe food processor will perform a variety of functions: slicing, grating, French fry, and
julienne. There are a total of 25 different plates available to perform these functions to meet individual
tastes. The 21 discs consists of:
7 slicing discs
8 grating discs
6 julienne discs
The standard Robot Coupe comes with two (2) discs.
Check your most current price list for the discs which
are included as standard. The number and type of
plates will vary depending upon the use of the machine.
SLICING DISCS
The seven (7) slicing discs range from 1mm (approximately 3/64") to 6.5mm (approximately 1/4"):

Disc Usage
SLICING DISCS
27051 1/32" - 1mm Slicing Disc
The thinnest slicing plate is the R291. It is used for
paper thin slicing of potatoes for potato chips. This
plate will also slice carrots lengthwise which can be
soaked in cold water to make flower petals for garnish.
27555 5/64" - 2mm Slicing Disc
The next to the thinnest of the straight slicing plates
is the 27555. It provides a wafer thin slice that makes
harder vegetables look best. Carrots, radishes, celery and potatoes look terrific through this plate. This
is the best disc for shredded lettuce for tacos and
sandwiches. This is also the disc for cabbage for a
German style slaw.
27086 1/8" - 3mm Slicing Disc
This is one of the new thickness of slice available.
By cutting 1/8" thick it gives good shelf life and maximum yield. Almost any vegetable can be cut with
this disc and gives greater yield than the standard slicer
which comes with the unit.
27566 5/32" - 4mm Slicing Disc
The 27566 is the best all purpose slicing disc. For
most vegetables this thickness is best. Cucumbers,
mushrooms, zucchini, and celery all cut beautifully
with the 27566 while providing a good shelf life. This is
the second most popular disc requested and comes
standard with the unit. Even soft foods like strawberries, bananas, and green onion tops slice marvelously.
27087 3/16" - 5mm Slicing Disc
Some foods are more attractive when sliced a bit
thicker and that is the function of the 27087. Half
slices of tomato or bell pepper work good as well as
yellow squash and zucchini. Try deep fried thick slices
of potato using the 27087 for home fries.
27786 1/4" - 6mm Slicing Disc
For soups and stews an extra thick slice is desirable.
Carrots and celery work great this way. Any food
that you want a more generous slice on will look terrific through the 27786. For this reason it is the third
most popular disc .
5/64" - 2mm Waved Slicing Disc
This is a decorative, thin, waved slice. Harder vegetables will work best with this plate like carrots, radishes, zucchini and potatoes.

GRATING DISCS
27764 Hard Cheese Grating Disc
The 27764 is the disc which will make a powder from
hard cheeses. Parmesan and Romano are used most
extensively with this. When potatoes are run through
this disc a batter is produced which is excellent for
potato pancakes.
27078 .02”- .7mm Pulping Disc
The 27078 pulping disc was created to grind Chinese
radish into a pulp that is served with sushi. Moreover,
it will render any vegetable into a wet pulp or batter,
much the way a vegetable juicer does. This is ideal
for vegetable sauces that are low fat.
27079 1/32”- 1mm Pulping Disc
The 27079 reacts identically to the 27588 but is just
slightly coarser so that not as much juice is extracted.
Use on ginger root (shoga), white radish (dikon), baby
turnips (kabo), or lotus root (renkon).
27588 1/16" - 1.5mm Fine Grating Disc
The R208 is a delicate grate used mostly for cheeses
and carrots. The width of the grate is 1/16" or 1.5mm
It also does an excellent job on bread crumbs and
cold chocolate.
27577 5/64" - 2mm Medium Grating Disc
This is the most ordered disc of this series. While
being used mainly for cheeses and carrots its size, 5/
64" or 2mm, gives maximum yield with excellent shelf
life. Also used on coconuts and potatoes for hash
browns. This is the grating disc that comes standard
with the unit.

27511 1/8" - 3mm Medium Coarse Grating Disc
This new size grating disc is good for an extra fine
coleslaw or anything you prefer grated a bit coarser
than the standard 27577 medium grating disc. This
disc works wonderfully with cheese, potatoes, beets,
eggs, cabbage or sweet potatoes.
27047 5/32"x 5/32" - 4mm x 4mm Julienne Disc
This is the most popular of the julienne disc. Carrots,
yellow squash, and zucchini work best. These can be
sautéed and makes a beautiful garnish for an entree.
Try steaming these too for a healthy and colorful side
dish.
27046 1/4" - 6mm Coarse Grating Disc
This in-between size of grate has become popular
with salad bars. Cheeses and carrots appear a bit
more generous when grated this way. Also purple
cabbage run through this plate can add a splash of
color to a salad bowl filled with lettuce.
27081 5/64" x 1/4" - 2mm x 6mm Julienne Disc
This new julienne cut is becoming a very popular presentation on salads. Carrots, zucchini and yellow
squash look especially good this way.
27632 3/8 - 9mm Extra Coarse Grating Plate
The 27632 is the widest grating plate. It provides an
extra thick grate of cabbage for slaw and cheeses for
melting. Mozzarella cheese looks terrific through the

27610 1/4 x 1/4" or 6 x 6mm Julienne Disc
This might as well be called the taco disc. Tomatoes
and onions can be quartered and allowed to gravity
feed through the lead and are chopped without damage. Lettuce can be cut for a chopped taco lettuce.
Chopped onions through the 27610 are great for hotdogs also. Every school system should have this plate.
Bell peppers can be chopped like the onions for
meatloaf or chili. As a sideline the French fry disc
makes great French fries and is the fifth most popular
plate.
R298 5/16" x 5/16" or 8mm x 8mm Julienne Disc
The 8 x 8mm julienne disc is great for zucchini, onions, and eggplants.
While the standard Robot Coupe comes with two specific plates (27577 and 27566 at time of printing), many
user applications may require some of the optional
plates available with the unit. As an example, a typical salad bar might use:
27555 2mm (3/32 in.) Slicing disc
27566 4mm (5/32 in.) Slicing disc
27577 Medium Grating disc
The 27555 disc could be used to slice cucumbers,
carrots, celery, etc. Good yield with long shelf life.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO JULIENNE MEATS
The 27566 disc could be used to provide half slices of
OR CHEESES.
tomatoes, bell peppers, or onions.
27599 5/64 x 5/64 - 2 x 2mm Julienne Disc
The R214 is an extremely fine julienne which can
dress up a salad. Radishes, potatoes, and carrots
work best. Try julienne radishes with the 27599 for an
ultra-fine cut that looks like a top chef worked for hours
preparing.
27080 5/64"x 5/32" - 2mm x 4mm Julienne Disc
This is an interesting flat julienne that gives substance
to a delicate cut. One unique function of this disc is to
duplicate the slaw cut that comes from a buffalo chopper. Try the 27080 with radish, potato, summer squash,
or sweet potato.
The 27577 Medium Grating disc would process carrots, cheese, etc.

IV. CLEANING/PREVENTIVE
MAINTENANCE
Cleaning the Blade Assembly
(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.
There is a removable cap attached to the top of the
S-blade assembly. This cap should be removed when
cleaning the blade assembly.
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.
CAUTION: THE BLADES ARE SHARP.
WEAR CUT-RESISTANT GLOVES WHEN
HANDLING THE BLADE.
DO NOT IMMERSE THE MOTOR BASE The blade cap may be removed by carefully pulling
the cap up away from the blade. It may be helpful to
ASSEMBLY IN WATER!
CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS
ATTACHMENTS: Remove and disassemble all attachments before cleaning. The bowl and continuous feed attachments should be cleaned per the following instructions or as required by local health department regulations.
The bowl, blade, lid, continuous feed attachment,
continuous feed lead, pushers, discs and discharge
plates are dishwasher safe. All of the attachments
listed above can be washed in a dish machine or three
tank system pot sink. Pre-rinse the attachments before washing to remove any bulk food on the parts. 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.
Inspect the area around the handle and bowl-switchrod to ensure they are clean. Use a brush on these
areas if necessary.
pull slightly to the side. The cap is held in place by
small plastic clips molded into the cap which snap
into the body of the blade assembly. If the cap is
difficult to remove, you can use a small diameter rod
or screwdriver inserted through the bottom side of
the blade assembly to knock out the cap using a quick
sharp impact. Again, use caution when handling the
blade.
Cleaning: Clean the blade according to local Health
Department regulations. It may be necessary to pre
wash the blade with a power head sprayer followed
by the use of a small round brush to remove any remaining residue. Typical cleaning instructions may
include the following:
Dishwasher: Clean the blade assembly in a commercial dish machine by removing the blade cap and
placing it flat on a wash tray or in a small parts holder,
it could otherwise be washed out of the rack. The
dish machine should have a standard wash, rinse,
and sanitizing cycle.
Pot Sink: The blade may also be cleaned using the 3
sink method of wash, rinse, and sanitize. Remove
the blade cap, and wash each item separately. The
sanitization sink should include a minimum of 200
PPM chlorine solution or other approved sanitizing
agent. The use of a small brush will assist in removing food particles from around the blade and inside
the hub. Allow the parts to air dry laying flat on a
drying tray.
Autoclave: The blade assembly will withstand cleaning in an autoclave system with temperatures less
than 210 degrees C. However, it will reduce the life
of the blade as compared to other sanitizing methods.

Operation Manual
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.
(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 liquids 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 per
year. It is recommended that the seal be replaced by
an authorized repair agency.
Blades should be kept sharp. It is not necessary to
have a razor edge however they will need sharpening periodically. Replacement of the dull blades or
discs 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.
TROUBLE SHOOTING AIDS: The following
sections indicate potential problems and the correct
solution which should be implemented by the user.
Problems which extend beyond these will require an
experienced serviceman. A list of the authorized
agencies is supplied.
V. TROUBLE SHOOTING AIDS
A. Unit does not start when assembled correctly:
1. Pull plug and try another outlet
2. Make sure bowl lid or continuous feed lead is
in the proper position with the ramp fully
pushed to the right, engaging the safety
mechanism.
3. Check the safety switch pin. It will break if the
attachment cover is not removed before the
attachment.
B. Continuous feed lead will not fit flush with
continuous feed attachment:
1. Processing plate is not in its proper position.
2. Rim of plate should be level with upper edge
of motor base.
C. Unit stops during processing:
1. Turn unit off, and unplug machine
2. Remove continuous feed lead
3. Remove cutting disc
4. Remove product being processed from inside
of machine and continuous feed lead
5. Reassemble unit
D. If unit does not operate after following above:
1. Check outlet for current (Breaker or Fuse)
2. Try unit again
3. Call local authorized service agency.
E. Unit starts to spark or smoke:
1. Turn unit off, unplug it, call local authorized
service agency.
F. Unit makes grinding noise:
1. Turn unit off, disassemble, check continuous
feed lead and processing plate to see if they
have been rubbing together (small pieces of
plastic would be present).
2. If this was the case, the processing plate was
not fully seated. Check for food particles
inside stem of processing plate.
3. Replace the plate-insuring that it is fully
seated. Make sure there are not food particles on the motor shaft.
4. If noise continues, turn unit off and remove
processing plate. Assemble unit without plate
and turn unit on. If no noise—processing
plate may be bent or warped. Try another
plate. If noise persists, call your local factory
authorized service agency.
G. Cucumbers coming out with torn skins and/
or with seeds knocked out:
1. Cutting plate is dull and must be changed.
12
R2N and R2N Ultra
Operation Manual
NOTE: Cucumber condition before processing should be considered.
H. Carrots are watery after grating:
1. Grating plate is dull and should be replaced.
I. Cheese forms balls instead of shreds:
1. Warm cheese
2. Grating plate is dull and should be replaced.
J. Machine becomes jammed while processing:
1. Turn unit OFF, and unplug machine. Remove
continuous feed lead and remove remnants of
product being processed. Put on a pair of cutresistant gloves and try to turn the plate manually in a counterclockwise direction. CAUTION:
This may be very hard to do. As soon as you feel
the plate slip, you will be able to reassemble the
unit and continue processing. If unit jams again,
repeat above until you get the plate to slip. Now,
remove and clean the plate. Before reassembling,
make sure:
a. Motor shaft is clean.
b. Plate is fully seated on motor
shaft.
2. If jamming is too tight to loosen by hand, contact service agency.
