The Optimax® Breading Machine
The easiest way to deliver the freshest breaded foods, at the lowest cost
In today's market, what keeps customers coming back is fresh food at a great value. While everyone agrees that fresh is best, there has never been an easy way to prepare signature breaded products.
Until the introduction of our batter-breading machines, there were two choices when it came to preparing breaded foods: Buy expensive, pre-breaded frozen products from someone else ... or hand-bread them using the same centuries-old, inefficient, messy and labor-intensive method.
Today, with increasingly high ingredient costs as well as the need to deliver quality to customers, we're changing the way people think about preparing breaded foods!
Consistent Breading Perfection
Hand-breading is messy, tedious, slow work. The Optimax® breading machine is exactly the opposite ... using technology, food is breaded the same way cook to cook, shift to shift and store to store.
- Rotation of the batter conveyor keeps the liquid batter constantly mixed
- The batter wheel moistens each piece precisely, time after time
- The breading belt keeps the seasoning and breading constantly mixed and helps break up dough balls
- As the belt goes around, breading is carried to the top of the conveyor where paddles create a ‘wave’ of breading that completely coats the product
- Vibrator springs shake off excess breading, optimizing your breading usage. This important feature prevents excess breading from blowing off in the fryer, which reduces oil life
Optimize Your Labor
The Optimax® works three times faster than hand-breading, enabling one person to do the job of three – and do it far faster and more consistently. That saves on labor costs – even with higher minimum wage rates. Read more why fry cooks love the Optimax.

Lowers Breading Costs and Extends Oil Life
To optimize your ingredient savings, the ingenious use of vibrator springs on the breading conveyor shakes off excess breading. Imagine that ... a feature that automatically prevents surplus breading from being wasted and ending up in the fryer! Additionally, the conveyor belt returns excess breading and breaks up many of the dough balls for reuse. This signature feature can reduce breading consumption up to 40%.
Plus, when breaded items are placed in the fryer, there's less 'blow off' of breading into the oil, which degrades the oil. The Optimax® breading machine prevents burnt, dark oil with unpalatable taste … and increases oil life up to 10%.
Save up to 50% over the Cost of Pre-Breaded Frozen Foods
There's a reason pre-breaded frozen foods cost a lot more: you're being charged for convenience. Why pay more for the bland taste of frozen? Put control over the cost and quality of breaded foods back where it belongs — in your hands!
Special-Recipe Breading Builds Brand Identity and Customer Loyalty
In today's crowded, fast-changing foodservice marketplace, doesn't it make sense to create, prepare and serve fresh-breaded items with your own signature flavor and appeal? That's exactly what our batter-breading systems let you do — efficiently and cost-effectively!
