Ultra Commercial 16oz Theater Popcorn Popper by Paragon: Par-109
Ultra Commercial 16oz Theater Popcorn Popper
Paragon's American-made professional series Theater Pop 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 Theater Pop.
Since the Theater Pop 16 oz popcorn machine popper will operate on a 20 amp circuit, it is ideal to use in schools or any environment that needs a mobile popcorn machine because it doesn’t require a dedicated circuit. This allows it to be used in multiple locations and still produce 221 servings per hour. This full-feature popcorn machine uses a gas spring assisted kettle for easy unloading, four-switch operation, kettle "ready" lights and a Hard-coat anodized aluminum kettle for superior performance and ease of cleaning. The heated warming deck will keep popcorn warm and fresh for long periods of time. One serving will produce enough popped popcorn to fill approximately twelve 1-oz bags. Measuring scoops for popping corn and oil are included with this popcorn machine. Three-Year Manufacturer's Warranty.
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 Foodzone 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.
Built-In Warming Deck
The popper incorporates a 50-watt heating element underneath the bottom tray. Since heat rises, bottom heating is preferable over heat lamps that only heat the top layer of popcorn. This bottom heating element provides the optimum amount of heat to keep your popped corn continually warmed to the ideal serving temperature. Depending on the humidity level, popped corn can stay fresh all day if kept at the proper temperature.
Old Maid Drawer
Conveniently built into the base of the popper is a stainless steel drawer to collect the unpopped kernels (commonly called "old maids"). The small holes in the bottom tray are just the right size to allow the old maids to fall through while keeping the fully popped corn in the serving cabinet. The drawer is easily removed for emptying and cleaning.
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.
