This popcorn machine is fine, but I don't think meant for more than popping a batch at a time to enjoy in a small group. The cabinet will hold about two batches before being too full to scoop without making a mess. The kettle is low, centered and close to the front of the cabinet, also making it tough to scoop popcorn into bags without making a mess even if the cabinet isn't full of popcorn. Lastly, we had several batches clump inside of the kettle, causing the stir bar to become lodged and a frantic effort to remove hot popcorn before it began burning. If the lid remained open through the duration of the popping, this didn't happen, but then there was a bigger oil splatter mess to clean up later. I would not recommend for use in a concession stand or a "commercial" environment. Other than that, it is a good machine and would be perfect for a home theater.
