Great Northern 8 Ounce Movie Theater Style Popcorn Machine
Made to commercial standards, the Great Northern Popcorn 8 oz. Foundation Movie Theater Style Popcorn Machine is often used in public settings to make great popcorn. The eight ounce kettle holds a lot of popcorn, and the 860 watt burner assures your corn will be popped quickly. The motor is one of the quietest on our list, and the antique styling is the perfect retro touch.
A warming light keeps the popcorn hot and fresh, a perforated floor at the bottom allows un-popped kernels to fall through to a collection tray, and the contents are surrounded by tempered safety glass. There’s even a built-in storage area for bags, portion packs, and other supplies.
There may be more expensive machines available, but none make popcorn as good as this model. At 32 pounds, this unit is fairly easy to move around but it weighs enough to stay in place once set down. Available in your choice of red or black, this machine comes with a five year warranty, the best on this list.
