What Size Popcorn Machine is Right For Me?

Popcorn machine size is measured in two ways. The first is obviously physical dimensions, meaning how much space is this machine going to take up and will it fit in the space that I have reserved for it. The second is popcorn kettle size, which determines how much popcorn the machine is capable of producing.


Physical Popcorn Machine Size: When checking the physical size of a popcorn machine, you want to consider the dimensions of the machine as listed in inches on our website. You will also want to consider the layout style of the popcorn machine, this means that if a popcorn machine opens for service on the back of the machine and has the pretty graphics on the front of the machine, you will want to ensure that you have enough room behind the machine for someone to access it to make and serve the popcorn that the popcorn machine pops. If the machine is designed to sit flush against a wall, you will want to make sure that you have left enough room for the electrical outlet to plug into the wall.


Popcorn Machine Kettle Size: How much and how quickly a popcorn machine can pop popcorn is determined by the size of its kettle. Popcorn machine kettles are measured in ounces of un-popped popcorn that they can cook in a single batch. For example, a 4oz popcorn kettle pops 4 ounces of popcorn kernels at a time. A standard serving size of popcorn is one ounce of uncooked popcorn, so another way of looking at it is that a 4 ounce popcorn machine pops 4 servings of popcorn at a time. When operating non-stop commercial popcorn machines can pop a full batch of popcorn in 3 minutes or they can pop 20 batches per hour. This roughly translates into a four ounce popcorn machine popping 80 one ounce servings or 85 quarts of popped popcorn every hour when running at maximum capacity.

  • 4oz kettle: 85 Quarts of Popped Popcorn/hour

  • 14oz kettle: 297 Quarts of Popped Popcorn/hour
