High-Output, Hard-Coat Anodized Aluminum Kettle
The two most important factors in a popcorn kettle are performance and ease in cleaning. All Paragon poppers feature a high-output, hard-coat anodized aluminum kettle. Paragon’s kettles are made of aluminum because it has the highest heat transfer rate of any approved cooking material, for optimum performance. These high-output kettles are then hard-coat anodized to provide a nonstick surface for easy cleaning.
Side-hinged kettles provide easy access to the inside of the kettle, thereby allowing for simple and convenient routine cleaning. This routine procedure prevents the difficult-to-clean "baked on carbon" that is prevalent in oil-based cooking appliances. With ordinary popcorn poppers, time-consuming and difficult disassembly of the kettle is required for cleaning.
Stainless Steel Food zone and Tempered Glass Panels
The bottom tray, drop door, and old-maid drawer of the popper are constructed of stainless steel and are removable for easy cleaning, in the dishwasher or in the sink with any mild detergent. The side and back panels are made of tempered glass for safety and ease in cleaning with standard household glass cleaners.
The inside of the cabinet is illuminated by a 50-watt R20 lamp. This miniature flood lamp is ideal for highlighting the popped corn. The lamp also provides light for added safety and convenience for the machine’s operator.
