Metropolitan Popcorn Machines

Inspired by the art deco architecture of the late 1920’s and 1930’s, these popcorn machines are ideal for home theaters. Its unique design enables it to be placed against a wall for a minimal space requirement while still providing an attractive visual impact. Ordinary popcorn machines have the graphics and cosmetic appeal on the back of the popper making them unsuitable for wall placement.

The optional pedestal base provides storage for all of your popcorn supplies while placing the popper at the ideal operating height. These commercial quality poppers feature a aluminum food-zone, 20 mil anodized kettle (for easy cleaning), a heated warming deck to keep the popped corn fresh for hours, old-maid drawer (for un-popped kernels), tempered glass panels and a three year parts warranty.

Anodized Aluminum Kettle

Anodized Aluminum Kettle

The inner kettle is constructed of thick gauge anodized aluminum for maximum performance and easy cleaning. Aluminum provides the best heat transfer of any “cookware approved” alloy while the 20 mil thick anodizing armors the kettle for durability and provides a super-slick surface for easy cleaning. The kettle jackets are made of plated steel for corrosion resistance and easy cleaning.
Warming Deck

Heated Warming Deck

Metropolitan poppers have a 50 watt heating element in the base to keep popped corn fresh and warm. Since heat rises, bottom heating is preferred to heat lamps that only heat the top layer of popped corn. The heated warming deck will keep popped corn at the ideal serving temperature for long periods of time. The warmer is necessary for situations that require that popcorn is available on demand.
Unpopped Kernel Drawer

Unpopped Kernel Drawer

You won’t have to worry about biting into an un-popped kernel with the Metropolitan’s old-maid drawer. The perforations in the bottom aluminum tray allow the un-popped kernels to fall int the drawer leaving only fresh and fully popped corn in the holding bin. Simply “rake” the popped corn with a scoop and the old-maids fall through the openings.
Simple Two-Switch Operation

Simple Two-Switch Operation

Metropolitans are designed to be simple to operate making them ideal for locations that have multiple operators. The master switch turns on the warming deck and the interior lamp. The kettle switch turns on the agitating motor and the kettle heat for a popping cycle. For safety, the kettle switch will not operate without the master switch in the ON position.
Three-Year Warrenty

The user-friendly design of these poppers allows for in-field repairs to be made easily with standard household tools.
