HTmarket.com has been selling and servicing popcorn machines
since 2000. We know things about popcorn and popcorn machines that other sites just don't know. While we sell a diverse selection of items, such as projectors and seats, the popcorn machine
is definitely one of the most frequently asked about items. There's a lot of myths out there about popcorn and popcorn machines, and so here we'll attempt to provide you with Kernels of Truth about Popcorn Machines and Popcorn, to help dispel these myths.
Kernel of Truth number 1:Popcorn
made from real popcorn machines is always better than microwave popcorn.
Kernel of Truth number 2:
Popcorn made from a real theater popcorn machine
tastes just like popcorn from a movie theater. In addition, it often tastes better than the movie theater as you can buy the best weaver popcorn
, and it's best when freshly made. The theaters let it sit in the hopper for too long.
Kernel of Truth number 3:
Weaver popcorn is the best popcorn out there. The best theaters use that popcorn. It yields better results with fewer unpopped kernels. It's like comparing filet mignon versus a strip steak- it's more tender.
Kernel of Truth number 4:
Popcorn machines make great popcorn and they also look really spiffy in the home. They make a great conversation piece.
Kernel of Truth number 5:
My wife makes popcorn for dinner. What can I say? if it's good enough for dinner, it's good enough for a movie theater snack.
Kernel of Truth number 6:
Most people melt real butter on popcorn. However, the best butter for popcorn is not actually butter. It's a specially made oil for popcorn called popcorn butter
. The key kernel of truth is that it has to be hot, not cold.
Kernel of Truth number 7:
Most people think the bigger the kettle, the better the popcorn. This isn't true. The key is to use the right amount of popcorn in the right size kettle. A 4oz kettle in a 4oz popcorn machine
performs just as good as a 12oz kettle in a 12 oz popcorn machine
. It just doesn't make as much popcorn. Be sure to use the 4oz portion packs in a 4oz kettle, the 6oz portion packs in the 6oz kettle, and so on.
Kernel of Truth number 8:
The biggest fear of owning a popper is that it will be hard to clean. Yes, this is the biggest fear, but the fear doesn't live up to the hype. A popcorn machine actually wipes clean easily with a damp cloth, and you can actually restore it completely with a kettle cleaning kit
. True, it won't be spotless, but a popcorn kettle is a lot like a BBQ grill or a wok. The food will taste better as it gets older and sees more use.
Kernel of Truth number 9:
Popcorn is the most commonly eaten snack at the movie theater, and has now become the most widely eaten snack in home theaters
Kernel of Truth number 10:
The overall cost of any popper and popcorn is usually a lot less than buying microwave popcorn in the supermarket, resulting in a higher lifetime value. Do the math! You might be surprised.
