Get the Scoop on Movie Popcorn for Home or Office

Why do many people go to the movies?  One big reason is they like the taste of movie theater popcorn from a hot popcorn kettle.  The microwave popcorn works but it’s not the same as the theater style popcorn.  At we have one of the most comprehensive popcorn categories on the web with a huge selection of popcorn machine makers and popcorn for popcorn machines. We have been shipping poppers for over 11 years believe me we know popcorn.  In this post we explore how to choose the proper popcorn equipment for the home or office.  We explore concepts like output and yield.  We also describe the correct popcorn to use in your popper.  We will conclude with helping you choose the proper popcorn supplies you may need to make popcorn more fun and enjoyable.  Here’s the scoop…

Charles Cretors in 1885 invented the very first popcorn machine to pop corn in oil.  The C. Cretors and company was formed in Chicago and still exists on California Avenue on the north-side of Chicago. has toured their factory and they have on display many of the first popcorn makers.  We sell on our web site some of the popular Cretors machines which are still considered by many people including myself to be the best popcorn poppers ever made.  They are made to last with top grade finishes.    We consider Charles Cretors to be the founding father of popcorn.

One of the first designs by Cretors shown below, very cool indeed.


A current machine by Cretors shown below and available on called the Goldrush Fresh Popcorn Popper, very cool you can bring this one home.  The first vintage popper would not fit through the door.



Today there are many new manufacturers that make popcorn makers some like Gold Medal and Paragon.  Cretors and Paragon still make their poppers here in the USA.  We like the fact that they manufacturer these machines in our great country.  There are many new imported models on the market under names like Waring and Benchmark.  On we sell only the best made machines and we don’t sell the kitchen appliance hot air poppers.  We only sell poppers with popcorn kettles that allow you to mix oil, popcorn and seasoning just like the movie theater. This process makes the freshest popcorn.

If your buying for your home theater, gameroom or for just home use.  You would start by looking at’s 4oz popcorn machines these are the leading ones for home use.  If you entertain many people at home or have a large family you could step up to a 6oz popcorn machine.  In general, you can purchase for small output homes or offices 4oz, 6oz or 8oz machines.  For commercial uses like banks and bars.  I would start looking at 8oz popcorn machines all the way up to 16oz popcorn makers.  The “oz” size refers to size of kettle and the amount of uncooked popcorn kernels that can fit into make one cycle or batch of popcorn.


Shown above is Paragon’s Theater Popcorn Popper available in 4oz, 6oz, 8oz or 12oz sizes made in the USA.

For higher output areas like concession stands or schools we suggest commercial popcorn machines that start at 12oz kettles.

Shown below is Paragon’s  Classic 14oz Popcorn Machine. Price is an affordable $1,469.99. Made in the USA.cretorsimage4

Ok you have chosen a popcorn popper that fits your needs the next decision point is what popcorn should I choose.  For the highest yield popcorn we suggest the Weaver Popcorn which is the best known brand.  If you’re on a budget the we have other popcorn with excellent taste but not quite the price tag of weaver brand popcorn. You can check out our Popcorn for Popcorn Machines at this link.


You should match size of your kettle to oz of the popcorn you choose.  You would choose 4oz popcorn for a 4oz kettle sized machine etc etc

Moving on, you will want to check out popcorn supplies like scoops, popcorn butter and popcorn tubs and boxes.  The size you choose is dictated by your serving requirements.  We feature movie theater popcorn tubs, popcorn bags and popcorn scoop boxes.  Last but not least don’t forget the butter.  If you like movie popcorn you will probably want the butter we feature a real cool butter dispenser by Paragon and it’s affordable for home use.

Show below is the Pro Style Butter Dispenser for $229.99


Ok now you got your butter dispenser in hand.  You will need to get the popcorn butter. offers many different brands of butter.  The most popular is Odell’s and Super Kist both are used by big movie theater chains.  You can buy in small portions like the Odell’s 10oz Tub or Super Kist Butter Flavor in a 6 Gallon Case.  We offer a variety of sizes on our web site.

In conclusion, movie theater style popcorn and the machines that make it are very affordable for every day use in the home or the office.  You can give us a call or visit our web site for more information.


I want a popcorn machine!

I was looking at popcorn machines over at, and it got me thinking… I could really use one of these. I daresay I need one.

When I was a younger guy, I worked in a four-screen movie theater called the Glen Theater, as an usher and concessions booth worker. And lemme tell ya, was pretty much the best job a 16-year-old guy could have. The work was easy, and came in very short, very intense bursts, punctuated by hours of playing cards and talking about movies. We were allowed to see free movies anytime we liked, with no limit. We got free popcorn and soda, and the occasional bag of candy. I also had a crush on half the girls who worked there…

Anyway, Thoreau had his Walden, Lyra had her Oxford, I had the Glen. Everything about it was perfect, even the imperfect parts.

A big part of the job was keeping the popcorn machine running. It was an 8 oz. kettle machine, with an automatic oil pump. It was truly ancient- probably older than I am. Nevertheless, it worked flawlessly.

That smell was everywhere. It was completely and permanently infused into my work shirt- I only had one, after all, and I worked almost every day- and no amount of washing could cause the shirt to lose that characteristic popcorn essence. Not that I ever wanted it to, of course; I could be anywhere, and as long as I smelled that popcorn smell, I was in a good mood. Pavlov would be proud. Remarkably, over a decade later, it still works that way! I can’t imagine walking into a theater without smelling fresh, kettle-popped popcorn, and the minute I step through the doors, any theater feels like home.

Microwave popcorn is nowhere close, in my opinion. I’ve mentioned that I’m going to have a home theater of my own someday, and I still intend to do so. When I do, mark my words: it will not be complete until I have a real popcorn machine, popping away, filling my brain with memories via those marvelous popcorn sounds and smells.
