5050 Kansas Ave. Kansas City, KS 66106 816-765-1444 Instructions – Popcorn Machine WARNING: DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD! IMPORTANT NOTE: This machine operates on a standard voltages, 120 volt, 60 cycle, single phase, AC current. You should have a properly sized outlet right at the machine. CAUTION: The motor air intake and exhaust holes located on top of machine must be clear of any obstruction. DO NOT COVER AIR VENT HOLES as serious damage may result. TO AVOID SERIOUS BURNS, DO NOT TOUCH KETTLE WHILE IT IS HOT!!! CONTROLS: 1. LIGHT AND WARMER SWITCH – turns on heat lamp and optional strip heater under corn pan. 2. KETTLE MOTOR SWITCH – turns on the motor which drives the kettle agitator shaft. 3. KETTLE HEAT SWITCH – turns on the heat element inside the kettle. TO START POPPING 1. Turn the “Kettle Heat” switch and “Kettle Motor & Exhaust” switch ON. 2. “Test pop” a kettle of corn. • Place one fourth (1/4) of the proper oil measure in the kettle along with three (3) kernels of unpopped corn. • As soon as the three (3) kernels pop, place the balance of the oil, plus the measured amount of corn into the kettle. Close the lid. • KEEP DOORS OPEN WHILE POPPING THE POPCORN 3. After the corn has finished popping, rotate the handle to dump the popcorn still in the kettle. Return the kettle to the upright position. 4. Repeat the cycle starting by putting a full charge of the ingredients in at the same time to pop another kettle of corn. NOTE: ALWAYS POP 4 TO 5 BATCHES OF CORN IN A ROW. THE QUALITY AND FLAVOR ARE BETTER ON BATCHES 2, 3, 4 & 5 THAN ON THE INITIAL BATCH. 5. On the final kettle of corn, it is a good idea to turn the “Kettle Heat” switch off, just as the lids are forced open by the popping corn. This saves electricity, since there is plenty of heat in the kettle, and also helps eliminate smoke and odor after you have stopped popping. When you are finished popping, make sure the “Kettle Heat” and “Kettle Motor & Exhaust” switches are turned OFF. NEVER LEAVE THE HEAT ON WHEN YOU ARE NOT POPPING. If you place oil in a hot kettle, remember to finish that popping cycle, or turn off the kettle. Exposure to heat starts to break down the color and flavor of popcorn oils. Always wipe the complete exterior of your kettle with a heavy cloth immediately after you finish popping and the kettle has cooled. Oil drippings will come off quite easily at this time, but will burn on and stain if not removed. 6. Turn all switches OFF at the close of your operations. CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS After you finish popping for the day, or your event, let the kettle cool until it is not too hot to handle, but still warm. Unplug the kettle. With a cloth, wipe out the inside of the kettle, the kettle lids, kettle crossbar, outside of the kettle and underneath. DO NOT IMMERSE THE KETTLE IN WATER!!! Make sure the machine is clean when you return it to avoid cleaning charges. Don’t forget to remove the old maid pan and empty out the unpopped kernels. Wipe clean.
