Popper Safety Feature Also Saves Money

Cincinnati, Ohio—The auto shutoff feature that changed small poppers is now available in kits for up to a 14-ounce kettle size, including the Citation and Pop-A-Lot Poppers. Operators can rest assured knowing their machine will automatically turn off after 15 minutes of idle time, and it re-sets each time a batch of fresh corn is popped. The feature also amounts to reduced energy costs and an extended kettle life. For more information, call (800) 543-0862 or visit gmpopcorn.com.
