Some sites give valuable feedback, but epopcorn.com is a site that offers all sorts of useful popcorn machines for people looking to see movies at home. ePopcorn.com is a wholesale and retail distribution company based in Washington State and has been in the concession business since 1999. ePopcorn.com was created to offer popcorn machine and concession equipment buyers a simple and informative website that makes shopping for popcorn machines and other fun food equipment both easy and fun. In this article I talk about three types of popcorn machines, one of which you may have at your place but most of which you would have at least seen or purchased popcorn from. Small Popcorn Machines: 4 oz. and smaller. Popcorn machines for home theaters, kitchens, gamerooms, small break rooms. Medium Popcorn Machines: 6 to 8 oz. Popcorn machines for small bars, restaurants, convenience stores, waiting rooms. Large Popcorn Machines: 12 to 16 oz. Popcorn machines for schools, conventions, stadiums, theaters, snack bars. So how do you decide which popcorn machine is right for you to make popcorn at home? The popcorn machine kettle size refers to the approximate number of one-ounce popped popcorn servings the kettle will produce in one popping cycle (which takes about 3-4 minutes). For example, a 4 oz. popcorn machine will produce enough popcorn in one cycle to fill 4 one-ounce popcorn servings. Four ounces of popped popcorn is roughly equivalent to a microwaveable bag of popped popcorn. A one-ounce serving is a bag approximately 3″ wide by 2″ deep by 8″ tall. The best way to determine the size of machine you will need is to figure out how many one-ounce servings you will go through during your busiest hour. We couldn’t use medium popcorn machines or large popcorn machines because they were large. As you can see here, there are a lot of types and uses for machines that make popcorn. Demand has meant that there are many to choose from and that you will know how to find one that goes with your budget and your needs.
