Why should I buy the CL 20?
Consideration of Robot Coupe food processing appliances invariably begins with a discussion of manufacturing quality, attention to detail and high performance. The Robot Coupe CL 20 is the least expensive in the CL range and is constructed with a hard plastic motor casing rather than stainless steel. Even so, considerable effort has been expended on a rugged design that will stand hard wear and is easily dissasembled for cleaning. The cutting bowl and lid are made from ABS thermoplastic, with fantastic impact resistance and the ability to withstand long term exposure to food acids, alkalis, alcohols and oils.
When it comes to the electrical side, the industrial strength direct drive induction motors used in the CL range are housed in a stainless steel motor shaft, and use ball bearings rather than brushes for low volume operation, minimal vibration and less chance of wear over time.
In operation, the compact table top CL 20 is well suited to slicing, julienne, grating and ripple cutting, but it is not particularly recommended for chipping or dicing - for this we suggest upgrading to the more powerful CL50 or the CL52, which also support a greater range of cutting discs and hence a greater spread of cut sizes and preparation options. That said, the CL20 supports a perfectly respectable 23 discs, with prep size options of 1mm to 9mm thickness.
Instead of the dual hopper featured in the CL50, this smaller model has interchangeable food hoppers which are not quite so convenient but serve the same purpose - providing the best feed in option for the fruit or vegetable being processed (it has a good sized 104cm2 hopper, and a separate cylindrical feed hopper for longer more delicate vegetables).
The unit can output 40kg of cleanly cut fruit or vegetables per hour, but there are models (both Robot Coupe and others) that exceed this figure significantly. If you're interested in pure volume of output then this may not be the perfect model for you, but if that doesn't concern you overly and you are more interested in a sensibly priced unit that still achieves top output quality you can't go far wrong with this appliance. The magnetic operated motor break cuts the rotation as soon as the lid is lifted.
In summary the Robot Coupe CL 20 is a compact, well put together vegetable processor. Although probably not suitable as a high volume, production line machine or as versatile as more expensive units, it will keep up with the demand of any medium sized kitchen, will last a long time if used properly and covers most types of preparation activity perfectly well (and for less cost than a more comprehensive machine).
