The Professional Series 12oz Popcorn machine is one of the premiere 12oz machines available from HTMarket. These American-made professional series popcorn machines are unparalleled in quality and workmanship and are comparable to commercial popcorn machines you find at the movie theaters. If you are looking for the highest quality popcorn machine in the market, you will find it in the Professional Series popcorn machine. A list and description of these features are below:
High-output, Hard-coat Anodized Aluminum Kettle
This popper features this kettle for optimum performance and easy cleaning. We 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.
The 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. 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 un-popped 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.
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.

Keeping your kettle clean allows your machine to heat the popcorn at maximum temperature. We recommend wiping down your kettle with a damp cloth after use to keep the popper popping like new!
