For example, a serial number of CA016IB indicates:

(C = Month) + (A = Model Fryer) + (016 = the 16th unit manufactured) + (IB = Year)

or the 16th Model 600 Fryer manufactured in March 1992

Serial numbers for products manufactured from 2004 to present can be explained by the following formula:

Product type characters + Last two digits of year + Two digit month + Three digit sequence

For example, a serial number of AA0409123 indicates:

(AA = Product) + (04 = Year) + (09 = Month) + (123 = Three digit sequence)

or the 123rd product manufactured in September 2004

Serial numbers for MKN combi-steamers manufactured from 2004 to present can be explained by the following formula:

Last Two Digits of Year + Six Digit Sequence

For example, a serial number of 06000001 indicates:

(06 = Year) + (000001 = Six digit sequence)

or the 1st product manufactured in 2006
