4 Key Considerations When Buying A Popcorn Machine For Your Home

Shopping Blog

Who doesn't love a large bowl of buttery popcorn, especially while sitting down to relax and enjoy a movie? Increasingly, people are looking to bring the cinema experience into their homes not only by installing projector screens and surround sound systems but purchasing their own popcorn machines as well. If you're looking to buy a popcorn machine for your home, there are a few key considerations to keep in mind that will help you make the right purchase!

New or Used?

Start by deciding whether you'll want to purchase a new or used machine. Buying used can be a great way to save money, though there are certainly benefits to buying a brand new machine. For starters, with a new machine, you'll generally have at least some kind of warranty in place in the event that a part goes bad or needs repair/replacement. With a used machine, you'll also want to make sure you clean it out thoroughly before use, especially if it's one that uses hot oil to create popcorn.

Serving Capacity

Popcorn machines can be made to serve anywhere from a few people at once to nearly 300 servings per hour, so you'll also want to consider how many people you'll generally be making popcorn for. Most people buying for use in a home theater or similar use will not need a popcorn machine with more than a 4-6 oz. capacity.

Hot Oil or Air Popper?

Another important question to consider when shopping for a popcorn machine is whether you want one that makes popcorn using hot oil or that creates air-popped popcorn. An air popper is certainly the healthier choice since it will not use high-calorie/fat oils. On the other hand, many would argue that oil-popped corn has more authentic flavor.

Style and Design

For some, the style and appearance of the machine are also vital. For example, if your popcorn machine will be displayed in a home theater or cinema space, you may want to go with something that has an attractive, vintage look. You may spend a little more for a machine that is both functional and aesthetically appealing, rather than a simple stainless steel or similar design.

These are just a few of the key considerations to keep in mind when shopping for a home popcorn machine. From there, you can enjoy the convenience of fresh popcorn every time you sit down to watch a movie!

Shopping Can Be a Rewarding Hobby

I have loved to shop ever since I was a young girl and have always considered it one of my favorite hobbies. While many people find shopping a chore, I love hunting down great bargains, and I often check out every online and brick-and-mortar store that offers an item before I purchase it. That way, I can stretch my shopping dollars and stick to my relatively tight budget each month. I know that there are many people out there that find hunting for deals a chore or simply don't have time to do it, so I thought I would start a helpful blog where I share some of my most recent new shopping deals and discoveries. I hope you come back often and my posts help you!
