An industrial popcorn popper is a machine designed to pop large quantities of popcorn for packaging purposes. This machine consists of a large metal kettle with a heating element and a rotating arm or paddle inside. The kettle is filled with oil and popcorn kernels, and as the oil heats up, the kernels begin to pop. The rotating arm or paddle inside the kettle helps to distribute the heat evenly and prevent the kernels from burning. Once the popcorn is popped, it is typically dispensed into a holding bin or bag for packaging. Industrial popcorn popper can produce anywhere from a few hundred to several thousand servings of popcorn per hour, depending on the size and capacity of the machine.
