We manufacture our equipment to last, and it is not unusual when customers return to replace their older Keating fryers or griddles to find that their equipment has been in service for 30+ years.

Keating’s Instant Recovery® trademark means that every Keating fryer recovers its temperature before the end of the cooking cycle. The patented system of high input burners and heat transfer surfaces provides constant, accurate temperatures in the cooking zone, to assure quality foods every time.

In response to our customers' needs to prepare fresh foods faster, it’s now possible to cook hamburgers to 165°F internal temperature in only 30 seconds with our Top-Side™ cooker. Improvements include a patented micro leveler full head adjustment for even cooking.

We have responded to our customers' requests for faster and easier filtering with our Safe & Easy Filter®. Filtering fat is faster than ever, less than 2 minutes for a 14" fryer! The Safe & Easy Filter® is designed to prevent contact with hot fat during filtering and requires no additional kitchen space beside or behind the fryer.
