Our popcorn makers are also ideal for pubs and bars, where popcorn makes a moreish and low-cost bar snack which you can take to the next level with creative seasonings and toppings – from piquant curry spices to salted caramel to a flurry of grated parmesan! Even restaurants benefit from having professional popcorn makers among their catering appliances, as it adds a modern touch and unique texture to both savoury and sweet dishes.

For the best possible flavour, popped fresh

  • Produce a large amount in a small space of time
  • Sturdy popcorn units to complement your snack-making selection
  • Dazzle your guests
  • Stylish designs

These popcorn makers produce ‘kettle-style’ popcorn, where the corn is popped in a heated drum, for outstanding flavour and even popping. Just add a small amount of oil with a high smoke-point to create top-notch popcorn – up to 5 kilos per hour, meaning that you can produce one fresh portion every minute, helping you to keep up with that pre-film rush! Like all our food appliances, our professional tools, as well as our industrial equipment, these popcorn makers are both practical and safe, with a non-stick Teflon-coated drum and stainless steel build for robustness and easy cleaning.

The glass sides allow you to display the popcorn and prevent it from falling out during serving thanks to a safety barrier by the serving doors, which are wide enough to allow easy scooping. Each machine comes with a scoop and a measuring cup, and you can choose to include a wheeled stand or even upgrade to our expert model with a heated display rack for pre-filled bags. The automatic temperature control and useful light indicators (for temperature and on/off) help you keep an eye on each batch. A popcorn machine is a must-have for any cinema; an iconic treat which works perfectly as part of a ‘snack pack’ deal with other snacks like hot dogs, nachos, a cola or a hot drink. Beyond the cinema, popcorn is always a great fit, so bring that classic cinema style into any event or venue for irresistible, crunchy, fluffy fun – whether sweet or salty!
