A Robotic Burger Making Machine That Can Produce 240 Burgers/Hour 'With No Human Interaction'

July 9, 2018


This is a video demonstration of the burger making machine constructed by the Creator restaurant in San Francisco. After being filled with the raw ingredients (including beef, which is ground by the machine before cooking them), it can produce a $6 burger every 30 seconds for a total of 120/hour (although the restaurant plans on having two of the machines for a total production of 240 burgers/hour). The machines also require no human interaction minus being refilled with raw ingredients (which are all chopped/sliced/shredded by the robot for each individual order) when they run low. Impressive. For reference, on the Fourth of July I challenged myself to cook one burger from start to finish in a minute and a half but it was super raw in the middle and I still diarrhea and am starting to get really worried/dehydrated.

Keep going for one more shot and the video.


Thanks to blue16, who agrees you might not find a hair in your burger, but you could find a nut or bolt.

    All that scientists imagine can be realized...

    So you wanted $15/hr did you? Now you can go to burger robot making school and get paid $min wage to clean the machine.

    I all on everyone to boycott robot burgers. Burger-flippin' labor capitalists need to eat too, you know.

    Just hook this thing up to Skynet and it'll just slowly poison us to kill the human race. Nice

    Keep your algorithms away from my burgers, hippie.

    Machine is me

    Burgers is firsts and shitposts

    Social skills is my actual social skills

    And now let's all give a big round of applause to the $15 minimum wage for making greasy teenagers obsolete. Hear that kids? Better get your degree in robot repair quick, before they teach robots how to do that!Oh, and screw you, eric ord!

    You couldn't even be bothered to copy my comment about comment copying bots?! THIS is why you'll NEVER pass the Turing test! Dumb robot, go make me a burger or something... Sorry, I meant 'sudo make me a burger'.

  • So it requires someone to cut all the ingredients to a specific shape (remove tomato and onion stems then slice top and bottom to be flat, slice the pickles flat, then load all that, plus meat, cheese, sauces, spices, bread, and lettuce into tiny tubes you need to constantly refill?? Seems like you still have several full time human jobs.

    Plus, you don't even have a potato cutting and frying machine? Seems like that would be square one. Automated fries!

    The efficiency of producing burgers is offset by the pain in disassembling and cleaning the thing.

  • Trollio

    Soon enough they will be self-cleaning and require only occasional maintenance. Low skill repetitive jobs will disappear.

  • Bling Nye

    Yeah, I'd love to hear what the local food safety inspectors have to say about it.

    "Without human touch" *human loads the machine with their hands* hmmmmm

  • GeneralDisorder

    It's poorly worded but I get what they're going for. Minimize human touch on the final product.

    Hey, can the meat grinder hopper hold a whole person, or like, half? Asking for a friend...

  • Bling Nye

    Fuck off you copy/paste basic bitch.

  • Nicholas Conrad

    I always assumed these copy/pasta posts were bots trying to emulate normal user behavior to throw off Bayesian detection... If so, it's pretty spot-on for this post ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    This automation is the slowest minimum wage person ever. Move over disabled worker we have this automation that goes even slower.
    They based this automation on the lowest standards and work ethic for a minimum wage worker.

    Eric Ord is my dad! ooooooohhhhhh the horror!

    I did bang your mom

    When you think about it, there's a lot wrapped up in considering the speed of something like this. What's the comparison? Definitely not a fast food place, that's an assembly line of prefab, frozen ingredients.

    I would say it's closer to a regular restaurant - which means it's super quick for a burger whose entire ingredients are freshly put together for each individual order.

    We've been talking about your dad all day and he's not even showing up. Eric Ord: First, my ass!
