In 1935, the company's founder P.F. Ratcliff built the very first Frymaster fryer with focus on the open frypot and the master jet burner. Frymaster has remained the industry leader in product innovation, efficiency, reliabilities and durability since this first fryer, always keeping quality and the customer's needs at the center of their operations. Frymaster has since expanded into pasta cookers, holding stations, food warmers, and more - all items maintaining Frymaster's well respected reputation for high quality equipment.
