"I purchased a soda vending machine from you and I’m back to purchase a popcorn machine and some popcorn to pop. My vending machine is still in perfect working condition outside of my business and I want to get a popcorn machine for my basement. I will definitely be back for future purchases! I wish all businesses could give the customer service you guys provide."

Do I Need A Popcorn Machine With A Heated Deck?

Do I Need A Popcorn Machine Cart or Stand?

Popcorn machine carts and stands provide much easier access to your popcorn machine. They are better for merchandising and the carts are great for mobility.

Popcorn machines larger than 20 oz are built with an attached base which is normally where a deep well and storage are.

How Do I Make Popcorn With My Machine?

You can either purchase popcorn, oil and seasoning separately or you can purchase premeasured popcorn kits. Most people prefer the popcorn kits because they are easy and come with a premeasured amount which equals no mess. Premeasured popcorn kits come in 4 oz, 6 oz, 8 oz and 12 oz. Premium popcorn machines have 3 switches for use and entry/base models have 2 switches. The three switches on the premium popcorn machines control the stirrer, the heating element for the kettle and the warming light. Entry/base popcorn machines will normally combine the stirrer and heating element. Combining the stirrer and heating element means the motor will constantly run during the 5-7 minute kettle preheat.
