The popcorn machine and its parts are hot. Use care when operating the popcorn machine.
Failure to observe safety precautions may result in serious burn injury to personnel.
1. Turn ON the corn warming switch (1) (if fitted). This switch controls the bottom heating element, the
top heating lamp and the sign display lamps.
2. Turn ON the kettle switch (2). This switch controls the kettle heating element. The red pilot light is
provided to indicate when the kettle switch is ON. Allow six to seven-minutes to pre-heat the kettle.
The kettle heating element is thermostatically controlled. Thermostat adjustments should not be
necessary as it has been preset at the factory for the correct popping temperature.
3. Turn ON the stirrer switch (3) located at the right end of the motor housing. This switch will function
only when the kettle switch is in the ON position. If the kettle switch is turned OFF, the motor will also
stop. This motor should always be running when there is corn in the kettle. This will prevent scorching
or burning of corn.
A measuring cup is supplied with the popcorn machine.
4. Pour a level measuring cup of oil (2 ounces) in kettle (4). Add a level measuring cup of raw corn (8-
ounces) and a teaspoon of popcorn salt. Vary the amount of salt and oil to suit taste. If desired, salt
may be added after the corn is popped.
5. When the corn stops popping, dump the kettle (4) immediately by turning the handle (5) clockwise
approximately 900 to release latch. Recharge as quickly as possible. Screen out unpopped kernels
over the perforated section of the corn pan.
6. Turn the kettle switch OFF when the desired amount of popping is completed.
7. Remove unpopped kernels from the drawer (6).
8. Turn the corn warming switch (1) (if fitted) OFF when the popcorn machine is to be secured.
