2. This popper must never be modified and should only be used for its intended purpose.

General Safety Precautions
1. Before use, securely station the popper on a dry, level surface that is away from a pool or any water.
a. **Before first use, be sure to clean the popper’s glass surfaces and wipe down the interior with a clean, damp
2. Hang the pot on the popper so that its roller bar is on the door side of the machine.
3. Plug the power cord into a properly grounded electrical outlet.
4. Turn the light and heater to the ON setting before adding butter or oil to the pot. It is recommended that the
amount not be more than .5 oz. Only use butter or oil with this popper. Liquid sugar or honey can cause damage to
the pot, smoking, and even injury.
5. Allow the kettle to preheat for 3-4 minutes, or until you see steam exiting the pot.
6. Open the lid and add kernels into the pre-heated pot. Use provided measuring cup (1 scoop per batch) when
dealing with bulk kernels. Close lid. At this point, the lid WILL BE HOT. Use caution.
7. If using the 8 oz. popper, turn on the stirrer via its switch – disregard this step when working with the 4 oz. model.
Once that step is completed, safely close the main unit’s doors. Popcorn will begin popping after 2 to 3 minutes.
8. When popping has finished, turn the stirrer (on 8 oz. model) and pot heater to OFF.
9. Gently turn the roller bar to completely empty the contents of the pot.
10. At this point, only the spot light warmer should be switched to ON. This will keep your popcorn warm and dry until
it is served.
11. Remove and serve popcorn with the scoops provided. If more butter or seasoning is desired, complete this step
outside of the main unit in a separate bowl or container.
12. When finished, be sure to unplug the machine from its power supply.
Cleaning and Maintenance
** Once you are finished popping, unplug the power supply and allow ample time for the unit to cool. When removing
the pot, use caution near the heat lamp bulb. It may still be hot.
** Clean the pot after every 3 or 4 uses, or before it is going to be stored for an extended period of time.
1. Turn off all switches.
2. Add a kettle cleaner, such as Carnival King Kettle Kleen (382KETTLEKLN) directly into the kettle. Add the desired
amount of water as noted on the back of the kettle cleaning solution.
3. Turn on the heater and stirrer (on 8oz. model) and allow the water to boil for 2 minutes.
4. Turn off the heater and stirrer (on 8oz. model). Dump the water into a pan and discard.
5. Wipe the kettle with a damp cloth.
6. Repeat as necessary.
With all switches off and the unit cooled, use a degreaser such as Noble Chemical’s Formula D Decarbonizer and
Degreaser (147FORMULAD) and a damp cloth to wipe the interior and exterior. Make sure your popper’s glass stays
clean and clear by wiping with a window cleaner, such as Noble Chemical’s Reflect Glass Cleaner (147REFLECT).
