As well as the speed, the main advantage of the robot is hygiene, he said. “Kebab slicers, when they are cutting the meat, get very sweaty because they are close to the grill. We take that problem out, so it’s better in the end for the customer.”

But is Kalyoncu not worried his robot could put kebab shop owners out of work?

“At the end of the day, you still need people to stay there. What we’re saying is: it’s more hygienic and it’s easier. Why not just let the machine do the work?”

Judging by the interest around his machine, many of Germany’s army of shawarma shop owners may soon be doing exactly that.
