Short Order Chef was a middleweight robot which competed in Seasons 3.0 and 4.0 of BattleBots. It was armed with a flipping spatula and wedge skirts, which were added for Season 4.0. It did decently in competition, appearing on television once but losing.
Season 3.0Short Order Chef's first ever match was against Zulu. Short Order Chef won by KO and advanced to the next preliminary round, where it faced Musashi. Short Order Chef won on a 34-11 judge's decision and advanced to the final preliminary round, where it faced Exodus 2001. Exodus 2001 won on a 27-18 judge's decision and Short Order Chef was eliminated from the tournament.
Season 4.0Due to lack of participants, Short Order Chef was already in the TV rounds, where it eventually faced Captain Insane-O. In the match, Short Order Chef was caught on the killsaws and landed on top of Captain Insane-O. After that, both robots would either avoid each other or started pushing each other. The time ran out soon after and Short Order Chef won on a close 23-22 judge's decision. This win put Short Order Chef to the round of 32, where it faced T-Minus.
In the match, both robots went straight at each other, but hesitate to come too close to one another. Short Order Chef tries to turn to go at T-Minus' side, but it wasn't fast enough to do that effectively. T-Minus tries to get under Short Order Chef's low body, but almost stops over Short Order Chef's flipping arm. T-Minus escapes before it can be flipped. T-Minus gets under the hinged skirt, but when the arm goes up, it doesn't catch anything but the skirt. T-Minus goes onto its back while Short Order Chef stays on the ground. T-Minus launches itself into the air and lands on Short Order Chef. T-Minus tries to flip Short Order Chef again, but gets underneath the skirt again and flips itself. After T-Minus self-rights itself, T-Minus got underneath Short Order Chef and finally flips it onto it's back. Short Order Chef couldn't self-right and was now being counted out. T-Minus won by KO and Short Order Chef was eliminated from the tournament again.
As of 2015, it is unknown if Short Order Chef participated the middleweight consolation rumble during Season 4.0.
