This Popcorn Machine is designed to compliment home interiors and constructed to stand up in the most demanding commercial environment.
- Incorporates all Theater Pop line features and functions.
- Commercial grade stainless steel parts used throughout for a great look, enhanced corrosion resistance, and long lasting durability.
- Simple, elegant labeling and lighted red switches provides distinctive home styling while retaining commercial functionality.
- Highlight the popper with a specially matched cart or stand. The high-performance textured powder coat finish and stainless steel signature-style plate adds a formality to this popper that completes the look.
- Comes with Paragon's exclusive lifetime warranty on home usage (4 oz machine only) and 3-year warranty on all other machines for all uses.
- High-output, Hard-coat Anodized Aluminum Kettle.
All of our poppers feature this kettle for optimum performance and easy cleaning. We only use aluminum because it has the highest heat transfer rate of any approved cooking material. Then we hard-coat anodize the kettles to create a non-stick surface that resists carbon build-up and is a snap to clean - just wipe with a damp cloth.
- Side-hinged Kettle.
Our kettles are simple to operate and maintain. This design facilitates routine cleaning because you can reach all parts of the kettle. Just wipe it with a damp cloth regularly and you'll eliminate most of the baked-on carbon that is so common in oil-based cooking appliances. With less carbon build-up, your machine will heat faster and work more efficiently. Ordinary poppers with center pivot kettles build up baked-on carbon quickly and require time-consuming, difficult disassembly for cleaning.
- Built-in Warming Deck.
Professional series poppers incorporate a 50-watt heating element underneath the bottom tray. Since heat rises, bottom heating is better than heat lamps that only warm the top layer of popcorn. Our bottom-heating element keeps all the popcorn in the cabinet warm at the ideal serving temperature. Depending on the humidity level, popcorn can stay fresh all day if kept at the right temperature.
- Old Maid Drawer.
A stainless steel drawer built into the base of the popper collects the unpopped kernels, or "old maids". The small holes in the tray allow the old maids to fall through, while keeping the fully popped corn in the serving cabinet. It's simple to remove the drawer for emptying and cleaning.
- Presentation Lamp.
A 50-watt R20 lamp bulb lights the cabinet interior and highlights the popped corn. The light also provides extra safety and convenience because the operator can see the kettle clearly for loading and unloading.
- Stainless Steel Construction
Components with a powder coat finish on our other lines of equipment have been upgraded with commercial grade stainless steel (finish style - F4). The result is improved durability to scratching and wear, and increased corrosion resistance. This line is perfect for applications where the machine is subjected to constant cleaning or a salt-water environment (coastlines). The life of these machines are extended dramatically as the risk of moisture penetration in powder-coated finishes is eliminated.
- Special Design Features.
Our popcorn labels have been moved to the glass on these poppers and designed with black/silver colors to not detract from the classic appearance of stainless. A touch of color and class is present in the lighted, red switches that feature simple, non-obtrusive labeling. The matching carts and stands feature a special textured black powder-coat finish that contrasts and compliments the machine perfectly. Limiting cart/stand labeling to a simple stainless steel signature style plate carries the classic design throughout the entire unit. This design results in a classic, elegant look that will enhance the most up-scale room, while maintaining the same high-end commercial quality in home use or commercial concession environments.
