Reviewer’s opinions ranged from durable and dishwasher safe to flimsy and cheap. Others complained about the shipping with some arriving cracked and the product having tape and stickers stuck to the actual product.

These look nice and seem affordable, but they are just plastic popcorn containers.

If you love popcorn like I do, then you will think its fun to try out different oils, and popcorn varieties, and popping methods. With a little trial and error, you can find the perfect recipe to suit your family.

In spite of the fun involved with discovering the best popcorn combinations, some of us just don’t have the time. Fortunately, there are kits available that have all of the ingredients premeasured. Just because you like the taste of fresh homemade popcorn that doesn’t mean a few shortcuts aren’t handy.

Great Northern has premeasured portion packs that include gourmet popcorn, coconut oil, and butter flavored salt. These portions are sold in 24 packs that contain either 2.5 ounce portion packs, 4 ounce portion packs, 6 ounce portion packs, or 8 ounce portion packs.

If you are using a 6 quart Popper then you would probably use the 4 ounce portion pack. These packs also have popping instructions on the back. You can leave the guesswork out of it with these instructions for commercial poppers, electric poppers, air poppers, and for popping on the top of the stove.

Nostalgia Electrics makes a fun popcorn kit. This kit contains 1 pound of popcorn, and an 8 ounce bottle of butter flavored canola oil, and three bottles of seasonings. The seasoning flavors are nacho cheddar, white cheddar, and ranch.

This kit would be good for hot air poppers or any other popping machine that you have. This doesn’t actually come with the popcorn oil because the butter flavored canola oil is used as flavoring after the popcorn is popped. If you’ve ever wondered what the butter at the movie theater is it is butter flavored canola oil.

This kit is fairly popular and has received some good and bad reviews. Some people said the popcorn was stale, while others thought it tasted fine. The seasoning salts were good, and the butter flavored canola oil tastes like butter flavored canola oil.

This pack is a little different from the previous ones because this canola oil is actually used as popping oil instead of as a topping.

Popcorn Supplies for Popcorn Machines

By Movie Girl | Accessories , Machine Supplies

All right now that you have your home theater set-up, complete with a home movie theater popcorn machine, it is time to accessorize.

Using a plastic cup to serve your popcorn just doesn’t look right. Your professional set-up needs a professional scoop. Once you have the scoop, you don’t want the kiddies just holding out their hands to get some popcorn. Here are a few popcorn supplies for popcorn machines that might help put the finishing touches on your popcorn experience.

This stainless steel popcorn scoop by Paragon is professional quality. Whether it’s a help yourself home theater night or you are serving popcorn at the block party or school carnival, this scoop will keep those bags filled.

This scoop has sharp edges to get stuck popcorn out of the sides of your machine. It also has holes so any unpopped kernels will fall through to the bottom of the machine and not end up in your serving bags.

Some complaints about this scoop is that the edges are sharp and that a curved handle would be more ergonomically correct for this right-handed scoop.

Sharp edges aren’t a problem with this yellow plastic scoop. This scoop holds about 2 ounces and works great for filling small bags.

Tell mom to put that kitchen spoon away, we use the plastic yellow scoop for our popcorn scooping needs. The bright color is fun and adds some cheer to your already fun filled event or evening.
