Would you let a robot cook your lunch?

Smart tech wants to take over in the kitchen. Chloe Scott meets a bot called Moley who’s a dab hand at shellfish soup – and not too proud to do the washing-up. Interpersonal skills, though, are still a tad lacking

A shiny white arm with a black hand glides in front of my face, then lowers smoothly to the kitchen work surface. The fingers close slowly around a spatula laden with butter. Thwack. Butter is dropped into a saucepan, the arm pauses, then glides over to the sink. Thwack. The spatula is dropped into the basin. This is Moley, the world’s first fully automated robot chef at work.

In a lab in Hammersmith, west London, Moley is making crab bisque. The robot – a pair of semihumanoid arms that dangle over a sink and hob – pauses before pouring some vermouth into the pan. Then away goes the steely arm to grab the blender.
