    A Singapore based startup has designed and developed Rotimatic - a fully automatic roti maker for those who love Indian food. The company claims that it's world's first machine of its kind and all you need to do is add dry atta & water and then select how many rotis you wish Rotimatic to make. The machine will then do some mechanical engineering to dish out hot Rotis ready to serve. Love & affection of course is not included.

    rotimatic.

    The price isn't announced yet, but the product itself will be available commercially in September 2013.

    It looks to me like a 'Roti' printer :mrgreen:. Instead of your regular ink; you add water and dry atta and the Rotimatic will do rest of the job. I'm yet to see a demo, but if someone finds a video do share it here.

    What do you think - will this product be successful among Indians living abroad? Do you see demand for this in India itself?

    Looks like the interest in this product has gone up significantly in the recent times. The official website of the company says that the first batch of Rotimatic will ship in December this year, but we still don't have any information about the price of Rotimatic. What I found though is an interesting video that shows Rotimatic in action, check it out (it's cool!) -



    There are a few interesting things about the product that should have caught your attention - the machine lets you decide the quantity of rotis, thickness, softness and the amount of oil you want to use for your rotis. The machine is capable of holding ingredients for about 20 rotis at a time (sufficient for up to 4-5 people, I guess) and the machine can 'print' at the rate of about 1 roti / minute; which is quite impressive.

    It'd be great if the Rotimatic team can talk to us about how they developed the product and a little insight about the mechanical engineering that goes behind the scenes.

    We'll keep an eye on the pricing & other details.

    woh ! thatz great to hear about these kind of product. it is further spectacular if a product that even does convert this rotis into calories and that are supplied to our body. in near future we see these kind of devices. some products are symbols for lazy future generation.
    But in-spite all this we need appreciate it becoz it might be useful to old generation who physically suffering.

    They're yet to launch the product in the market. The company is based out of Singapore and no information is available about their plan to launch in Indian markets. I believe they'd target the Indians in western and the European markets first before launching the product in India.

    The price of Rotimatic is yet to be officially announced. We'll keep this discussion updated as soon as we get more information.

    I really doubt they are the official company. Beware of the fakes (not that I'm suggesting that the company listed above is fake; but to the best of my knowledge - the official makers of Rotimatic is a different company). Official price of Rotimatic in India or any other markets is yet to be revealed. I think we'll get in touch with the officials and have them comment here.

    @shoba singvi On the official website, they have now mentioned that "Rotimatic is not available in the market currently."
    Their first launch market is going to be Singapore and they have shared that other geographies will have to wait a while as they plan to expand market by market.
    Interested customers can sign up on their page - http://rotimatic.com/how-to-get-one/ to get the details before others.

    It will be interesting to know how authentic do rotis made out of rotimatic are. Indian rotis are different than the fermented western breads.

    We just can't have half-cooked or over-cooked rotis.

    Prices are announced. Pre-order price is 599 USD and after that 999 USD!

    Looks like this machine will churn out rotis made of GOLD! :D

    Holi Ravioli! $599 / $999 for Rotimatic? Just verified that they're actually pricing it that high! Here's a screenshot from their official website -

    Rotimatic-Price.

    Classic example of pricing gone wrong!
    I'd rather learn to bake rotis myself than ordering this one. I hope the Rotimatic folks will reconsider their decision.

    PS: On a second thought, this might actually get clients for that price. In the United States, most of the Indian families buy the Rotis for the entire week and then store them in the refrigerators. The family seldom gets to eat hot, oval roties for lunch/dinner. Wishing Rotimatic all the best with their product. I personally won't buy it.

    What do our fellow engineers think about the price of Rotimatic? Is it worth it? If not, what'd be the ideal price for this product, in USD?

    Well, however great the machine be, it is highly over priced!


    If user can take at least pain of making dough or use very cheap dough-maker, then the mechanism of machine can be minimized thus resulting in lower cost. After dough is made externally, all we need to do is extruding and stamping of dough balls.
