Frymaster Corporation is the market leader in commercial fryers - the choice of the world's largest, foodservice chains. Frymaster began in 1935 when company founder, P.F. Ratcliff, built the very first Frymaster fryer around the advanced principles of the open frypot and the master jet burner. Since then, Frymaster has led the industry in product innovation such as the highly efficient infrared burner and fully controlled programmable cooking. Industry firsts, such as computer controlled frying, built-in filtration of shortening, high efficiency fryer systems, and space-saving under-fryer automatic filtration are further examples of innovation at work for the benefit of the foodservice industry.
