Lil’ Max 8 Oz. Popcorn Machine
Inspection of Shipment:
Unpack the shipping container and thoroughly inspect the machine for any damage that may have occurred
during transit. Notify the freight carrier immediately in order to file a damage claim.
Setup:
Your new Lil’ Max 8 Popcorn Machine is completely assembled and tested at the factory.
Remove all packing material and tape before starting operation.
Electrical Requirements:
The following power supply must be provided:
Model No. 2389:
120 VAC, 60 Hz.
Model No. 2389EX:
240 VAC, 50 Hz.
All Models have 1305 Watts.
Your electrician must furnish sufficient current for proper machine operation. It is Gold Medal Products
Company’s recommendation that this machine be fused on a line by itself. Failure to wire properly will void
the warranty and can result in damage to the heat elements, light, motor and etc.
It is Gold Medal Products Company’s recommendation that this machine be plugged directly into a wall
outlet. The use of extension cords is not recommended due to safety reasons and the popper’s
performance will be sacrificed/reduced.
Before You Plug In Machine:
1. Make sure that the wall outlet can accept the three (3) prong grounded plug on the power supply cord.
2. The wall outlet must have the proper polarity. If in doubt, have a competent electrician inspect the outlet
and correct if necessary.
3. DO NOT use a three (3) prong to two (2) prong adapter.

Operating Instructions
Controls and Their Functions:
A. Light & Warmer Switch: This switch operates the overhead light and corn deck freshener heat element.
B. Kettle Stir Motor Switch: This switch operates the popcorn agitator shaft. This switch must be ON at all
times when popcorn (popped and un-popped) exist in the kettle.
C. Kettle Heat Switch: This switch turns on the heat element located in the popcorn kettle.
Amount of Popcorn and Oil:
Your new popper is equipped with a 178ml corn measure cup. Popcorn popped in coconut oil stays fresher
longer. Coconut oil does not leave black deposits in your kettle like other oils.
Corn charge --- 237ml (8 ounces)
Oil charge --- 60ml (2 ounces)
Flavacol --- 8cc (1 tablespoon)

ACCESSORIES
For easy operation, use authentic Gold Medal Products Company portion pack oil and corn/salt kits. This
machine was designed for use with the following portion packs:
Corn/Salt Kit:
Model No. 2037 MegaPop Corn & Salt Kit
Oil Portion Pack:
Model No. 2639 Naks Pop 4 Coconut Oil, 3.8 Oz. (112 ml)
Popping Instructions:
1. Turn both the KETTLE HEAT and KETTLE STIR MOTOR switches ON.
2. Test pop three (3) kernels of corn and one ounce (1 Oz.) of popping oil. When the kernels pop, the kettle
is ready for use.
3. Load both a full corn/oil charge and Flavacol Seasoning Salt into the kettle. Close the lids.
4. When the corn has finished popping, gently dump the kettle.
5. Repeat the cycle with step number 3. Always pop 3 to 5 batches for the best popcorn.
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 procedure saves electricity since the kettle has plenty of heat and
eliminates smoke/odor from any oil residue that remains after you have stopped popping.

Care And Cleaning
After completion of a series of poppings, wipe the outside of the kettle with a soft cloth to remove any oil
drippings/residue. DO NOT let this residue burn on! After completion of popping for the day, let the kettle
cool until it is warm to the touch. Unplug the kettle and remove from machine. Use a soft cloth to wipe out
the inside of the kettle, kettle lids, kettle crossbar, agitator and all outside surfaces of the kettle.
DO NOT immerse the kettle in water or any other cleaning solution, this will void the warranty.
It is recommended as a routine maintenance procedure to use authentic Gold Medal Products Company
2095 Heat’n Kleen inside kettle cooking surface cleaner. Heat’n Kleen will remove any oily build-up and
helps maintain a clean cooking surface if used on a routine basis. Heat’n Kleen will not damage the kettle’s
cook surfaces. Contact your local Gold Medal Products Company dealer if additional cleaning strength is
required for extremely dirty kettles.
For fresh corn tomorrow, remove all popped popcorn and place in a clean sealed food container. The
container must be suitable for direct food contact.
Clean the glass and all interior/exterior cabinet surfaces. A regularly cleaned machine is easier to keep
clean. In addition, a clean machine is more appealing to both customers and increases sales. Your local
food service inspectors appreciate a clean machine.
NOTE: DO NOT use any cleaners that contain ammonia. Ammonia based cleaners may crack and/or fog
the plastic parts on the machine.
