in Changing the Light bulb section to change the bulb.
CUSTOMIZING THE MARQUEE
The unit comes with a sheet of reusable vinyl letters and characters to
customize the Marquee. Simply peel and stick the letters to the Marquee.
If you have trouble peeling the letters, try using an exacto knife or letter
opener. You can also print messages from the computer and insert the
paper into the Marquee slots. Use your imagination and have fun!

ENGLISH
HOW TO OPERATE
Before first use, clean the inside of the unit by wiping with a moist,
non-abrasive sponge, towel or cloth and then wipe with a nonabrasive dry towel. Wipe down the inside of the Kettle and be
sure it is properly placed in the brackets before starting.
1.
First, find a flat surface near an electrical outlet before
starting. Make sure your cord is away from any water source.
It is acceptable to use an extension cord if needed.
2.
Gather your popcorn making supplies: popcorn, seasonings, bowls or bags for
holding the popcorn, cooking oil, Kernel Measuring Cup and Oil Measuring Spoon.
(Kernel Measuring Cup and Oil Measuring Spoon are included with your unit)
3.
Plug in the appliance while switch is flipped to OFF position.
4.
Make sure Kettle is properly secured in support brackets.
5.
Make sure Kettle motor is plugged in.
6.
Turn appliance ON by flipping the switch on the top of the machine.
Allow the appliance to run 3-5 minutes to heat up Kettle.
7.
Turn unit OFF.
8.
Use the Oil Measuring Spoon supplied with your HOLLYWOOD KETTLE
POPCORN MAKER to add 1 tablespoon of your favorite popcorn cooking oil to
the Kettle. For best popping results, it is suggested to use light vegetable oil.
9.
Add ¼ cup popcorn kernels to the Kettle using supplied Kernel Measuring Cup.
10. Turn the unit ON and close the door. In no time at all, you will
hear the popping begin. Fresh, hot popcorn will begin to burst
out of the flip lids on the Kettle - just like at the theater!
11. Once the kernels have stopped popping, tip the Kettle using the
red knob on the Crank Handle to release the popcorn.
12. To serve popcorn, simply pull out drawer. The door to the Main Unit locks
magnetically which helps seal in the heat so that popcorn stays warm longer.

HELPFUL TIPS
ENGLISH
SMOKING
If your HOLLYWOOD KETTLE POPCORN MAKER begins to smoke during
cooking, it may be due to grease build up. In order to reduce smoking,
make sure that you clean the inside of the Kettle between uses.
CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
1.
Make sure appliance is unplugged and completely cooled before cleaning. Unplug
the outer plug to the outlet as well as the Kettle motor plug inside the Main Unit.
2.
Use slightly damp, non-abrasive sponge, towel or cloth to wipe down the
inside and outside of Main Unit, then wipe with a non-abrasive towel to dry.
3.
After Kettle motor has been unplugged and Kettle has completely cooled,
turn Crank Handle clockwise to loosen and remove from Kettle.
4.
Remove Kettle from support brackets.
5.
Take Kettle out of the Main Unit. After removing Kettle from
Main Unit, fill ²⁄ ³ of Kettle with hot, soapy water.
6.
Let the Kettle sit for 15 – 20 minutes to cut the grease. (time may vary – use
your own judgment depending on the amount of cleaning necessary)
7.
Empty water. If necessary, use the scrubber side of a
cleaning sponge to scrub inside of Kettle.
8.
Rinse inside carefully and dry.
9.
Wipe outside of Kettle with damp cloth and dry.
10. Reattach Kettle to Main Unit and then reattach the Crank Handle by inserting
Crank Handle into the Kettle. Turn the Crank Handle counter-clockwise to tighten.
NOTE: To protect the motor plug from getting wet, never immerse the Kettle
in any liquid. Never place any parts in the dishwasher. Always wash by hand.
CHANGING THE BULB
The unit comes with a 20 watt light bulb installed to make the
Marquee light up. When the bulb goes out, you may change it. Use a
regular light bulb up to 20 watts or a compact fluorescent light bulb
up to 20 watts for greater light intensity (a compact fluorescent light
bulb is the equivalent of 150 watts with a 20 watt output).
Follow the steps below to change the light bulb:
1.
While unit is turned off and has cooled completely, unscrew the nine screws
underneath the Marquee using a Phillips head screwdriver. There are three
screws on the front underside of the Marquee, three on the right underside
of the Marquee and three on the left underside of the Marquee.
2.
Lift top of Main Unit to expose the bulb.
3.
Unscrew light bulb and replace with either a regular light bulb up to
20 watts or a compact fluorescent light bulb up to 20 watts.
4.
Replace top of Main Unit and replace screws.
