A fun addition to social gatherings, this traditional hot-oil popcorn maker produces theater-style popcorn from the comfort of home. Use it to pop up to 8 cups of hot delicious popcorn at a time. The Sunbeam unit features a double-hung stainless-steel pivoting kettle with a hinged lid and a motorized stirring mechanism – which means less oil required, more thoroughly coated kernels, and less un-popped kernels at the end of the cycle. Reminiscent of old-fashioned theatre-style popcorn makers, but in a size that can fit on a countertop or table, the appliance also features a simple on/off switch with an indicator light, see-through side panels for safe viewing, and a slide-out popcorn drawer for easily scooping popcorn into a serving bowl or individual bags (not included). The machine also features a removable popping chute which affixes to the base of the popcorn maker for convenient storage and a measuring cup which doubles as a butter warmer. Enjoy the popcorn plain or with salt and melted butter – or get creative by sprinkling it with brewer’s yeast, parmesan cheese, or Italian seasoning. The machine measures 11.75 x 10.5 x 19 inches and weighs 5 pounds.
