What goes better with a nice movie than great tasting popcorn? No microwave popcorn for us.
To get the best tasting popcorn we purchased a commercial quality popcorn popper. We got the Paragon Original 1911 brand 8 oz popper. This produces theater quality popcorn with turn-of-the-century nostalgia. The popper has a heated base to keep the popcorn fresh and crisp, an internal light, and a nice cart. We purchased the machine from Stargate Cinema who provided quick and friendly service. We also get popcorn supplies from them.
The kettle has a stirring rod and produces great popcorn. I use the popcorn portion packs that have pre-measured corn, coconut oil, and seasoning.
I am very impressed with the quality of the machine. It has a hard-coat anodized aluminum kettle, stainless steel food-zone and tempered glass cabinet. The popper and cart weigh about 119 lbs.
The internal light was too bright for use while watching a movie in our darkened living room, so I added a dimmer. See below for details.
