Shark Tank Chefee Robotics Update

Chefee Robotics Update

  • Entrepreneurs: Assaf Pashut
  • Business: Robotic chef
  • Ask: $500,000 for 4% equity
  • Result: $500,000 for 15% equity
  • Shark: Kevin O’Leary

Assaf Pashut knows that it can be hard to cook healthy meals, especially for those with busy lives. That’s why he created Chefee Robotics.

Chefee Robotics makes cooking so easy, that you just have to walk into your kitchen and talk to it. Assaf’s invention is the world’s first, embedded, robotic chef.

It can meal plan, track nutrition, cook the meals, and even order the groceries. Additionally, it’s very easy to use.

Once a week, you re-stock the ingredients. Then, you open the Chefee app to place an order, and Chefee will do the rest.

Chefee is made of two parts, the upper, and the lower. The upper stores ingredients, and fits into a standard kitchen cabinet. The left side is refrigerated, while the right side is for dry storage.

At the start of the cooking session, Chefee dispenses and weighs the needed ingredients to move into the lower part of the system for cooking.

In terms of getting the ingredients, the app links up to both Instacart and Amazon Fresh. This makes the model nice and easy for those who want to do as little work as possible in meal preparation.

However, if this luxury catches your interest, it won’t come at a cheap price. Base models begin at around $9,500, and cap the premium model at around $50,000.

The difference in the price points comes down to the ingredients. The higher up the models you go, the more ingredients that will be integrated, meaning, a larger variety of meals.

With all that said, at the time of filming, Chefee Robotics is still pre-revenue. However, they do have a $500,000 signed letter of intent from a high-end kitchen remodeling company in Palm Springs, California.

Assaf has also been using organic advertising and social media to grow his business. Further, he’s presented Chefee to builders, designers, and high-end appliance companies.

One of those high-end brands that he met with is Wolf Sub Zero. It turns out, the top executive that he met with loved the idea.

Eventually, Assaf would love to partner with such companies for licensing deals, however, this isn’t his only vision for the company.

Mark Cuban wants to know why Assaf hasn’t already begun shipping. Assaf says he needs the $500,000 investment from a shark to get to manufacturing.

Likewise, the entrepreneur doesn’t want to overpromise and underdeliver. In addition to the investment he’s seeking on Shark Tank, he also has $450,000 from another investor, plus he injected $90,000 of his own money into the company.

In terms of cost, for the base $9,500 model, manufacturing costs around $1,500 for materials and $1,000 for labor.

Barbara Corcoran clears the deck by going out. She thinks the concept is a good one, but overall, she’s not sure that she can trust the execution.

Robert Herjavec ultimately thinks that there are more affordable options for meal prep, that don’t cost nearly as much as what Assaf is offering. For that reason, he’s also out.

Lori Greiner doesn’t think it will adapt well to the market. Therefore, she is out next.

Mark has too many questions about the technology and isn’t happy about the answers Assaf is giving when he asks for further explanation. He ultimately goes out.

Kevin O’Leary is interested and offers Assaf $500,000 for 15% equity. Assaf counters Kevin at 8% equity, however Kevin isn’t interested in that deal. Assaf counters again with 12% equity, but Kevin still isn’t interested.

Before he loses the opportunity, Assaf accepts Kevin’s offer of $500,000 for 15% equity. Keep reading our Chefee Robotics update to find out what happened following Shark Tank!

In terms of a Chefee Robotics update, it seems that teaming up with Kevin was a good thing for Assaf and his business dreams.

According to the Chefee Robotics website, you can now reserve your model, and it even comes with some great perks. These include $1,000 in groceries, an early-bird pricing deal, and more.

Other reports say that the Chefee will be ready for delivery by Christmas of 2024. So, it seems things are finally plugging along in terms of manufacturing.
