Over 60 Years of Experience

Our commitment to innovating food-processing technology has been in the works for over half a century, beginning when Sam Stein sought to curate and expand the automated batter and breading market in the 1950s. Ever since we debuted our very first frying-based product, the Stein Fry-O-Matic – which began development in 1966 – we have remained dedicated to perfecting fryer solutions.

Our cutting-edge solutions in the industry have revolutionized frying technology, and we constantly strive to push the boundaries of frying machinery and capabilities. With our extensive and growing collection of frying, filtering, and conveying systems, Stein has helped introduce a whole new world of possibilities.
