How Much Oil for My Popper?
Using a popcorn popper for the first time can be a learning experience. With this in mind, we’ve received numerous questions from customer on how much oil to use in a popper. Here’s a guide that will help you.
*2oz Popcorn Machine = Use 2 ounces (1/4 CUP) kernels + 1/2 ounce (1 Tablespoon) Oil
4oz Popcorn Machine = Use 4 ounces (1/2 CUP) kernels + 1 ounce (2 Tablespoons) Oil
6oz Popcorn Machine = Use 6 ounces (3/4 CUP) kernels + 2 ounce (4 Tablespoons) Oil
8oz Popcorn Machine = Use 8 ounces (1 CUP) kernels + 2 ounce (4 Tablespoons) Oil
12oz Popcorn Machine = Use 12 ounces (1-1/2 CUP) kernels + 3 ounce (6 Tablespoons) Oil
16oz Popcorn Machine = Use 16 ounces (2 CUP) kernels + 4 ounce (8 Tablespoons) Oil
*The size you need is entirely dependent upon the amount of people you feed on a regular basis. Remember that the “ounce amount” relates directly to how many ounces of popcorn can be produced in one batch. For small families or small groups of guests, the four-ounce popper may be perfect for you. If you entertain large groups, or have a big family, you may want to buy the six- or eight-ounce popper to avoid making multiple batches all the time. Just keep in mind that even if you have a larger popper, you can make smaller batches on occasion with smaller amounts of corn, oil and salt..
