    I ordered this because my mom loves popcorn. However, ordering this from webstaurantstore was scarry. As we had problems before. All in all, everything arrived quickly. I am so shocked at this company. It used to be my last option to come here, but they are moving up on the list. However, this machine is pretty cool. I would definetly pay more for the higher wattage and the cooler look of the machine. Cleaning can be somewhat of a pain, but the kettle removes easily to clean behind. The only issue is the sides. Kernels get stuck into the side. So it can be hard to remove, but not everything can be great. I purchased the Carnival King kettle popcorn for this. Not sure if it was great. We are going to play around with other companies for popcorn..

    I received my Carnival King Royal Series 8oz Commercial Popcorn machine just in time for my big New Years Eve Party. I was shocked at the large size, features and how quickly it popped and kept the popcorn warm all night for just over 200 dollars. It cleans easily and we store it on top of my husband beer fridge for easy access. It was the hit of the party and has been used every day since. A must have for the popcorn lover. It tastes just like movie theater popcorn right at home.

    This popcorn maker works great! The matching looks great, heat lamp works well as well as the tray to catch kernels. The four not five stars is the inside base is difficult to keep clean.

    We are so happy with our brand new popcorn machine. At the Eagles Aerie, we hold many community functions like bingo, karaoke night, dinners and other fun events. The popcorn machine is a MUST HAVE for these events, and after trying to patch up the old one, long enough, we decided to purchase a new one from your company and could not be happier with it. No more burned popcorn smell in our Aerie. Only the wonderful smells of freshly popped corn. The only problem now? We can't seem to keep up with the demand. Before it's done popping, there is a line ready to grab it. Thank you for this terrific machine.
    We have a large family that LOVES popcorn! We purchased this popper as a family Christmas gift and have enjoyed it since. Smaller poppers were wearing out so quickly we decided to invest in one we hope will last through our use! The lightbulb keeps the popcorn hot and fresh and we’ve had lots of compliments from visitors on its vintage look and the taste of the popcorn. The only reason for four stars is that the kettle did wear out after about 4 months but webstraurant sent us a new kettle for free that fixed the problem! We would recommend this purchase!
    We've had this machine for 2 years and it has never failed us. It's such a big hit in events, especially Halloween! The smell of popcorn on a cool halloween night draws the crowd from many blocks away! People say they had to find where the "popcorn house" is.
    We like this product and it is very sturdy/solid. All of it is stainless steel inside. The ceiling is not polished but has held up so far over 6 months. The machine motor compared to our last one is supper quite. The wife always asks me when am I going to start making popcorn and I have to remind her the machine is on. Our last machine you couldn’t even talk it was so loud, but not this machine. Customer service was very helpful for when we received the machine the kettle was defective. Customer service quickly resolved the matter and returned a new kettle. The reason for docking one star is due to the wear of the nonstick teflon kettle. It is beginning to wear in the area the auger turns the popcorn. There is no contact being made but still seams to be wearing when the auger rotates when popping corn.
    Thank you for your review, James! We are sorry this Carnival King PM30R Royalty Series 8 oz. Red Commercial Popcorn Machine / Popper - 120V, 1320W has been showing signs of wear in the kettle. Please contact a Customer Solutions Representative if you have any questions about it!
    3 and a half STARS Pros; This popcorn machine works great, operator must be attentive and observe and makes popcorn fast, affordable price. Cons; This machine does not actually use a thermostat, it uses thermal High temp limit disks and not an actual thermostatic reed switch so if an operator forgets to turn off the machine it burns out the high limit. Not a bad deal just some end user issues to work out. Do not leave it on. Perhaps a better thermo-disk can be used such as one that does not reset until cold and power break instead of a high limiter where these keep it at the rated temp of 230C until in fails.
    Fantastic machine and a great price. Keeps up with demand and the kids love watching the popcorn pop! We make kettle corn in it too. Works perfect. Highly recommend this product.
    We ordered this awesome machine from Webstaurantstore.com and have put it to great use! Our weekly popcorn days are a hit at our Molly Maid office!
    great pop corn machine just don't forget to heat up the kettle before you put the kernels in or not all of the popcorn kernels will pop as soon as i start poping and the smell of fresh popcorn and butter fill my business customers line up i love this machine
    Amazing popcorn machine ! I’m so glad I went with this brand and size because it really looks beautiful compared to the smaller popcorn machines!
    for small business its a great machine. not for industrial use. i use it every day for a few hours, one month after a thermostat was broken.
    I would give a 1 star review, but gave it 2 stars because the price of the machine is cheap. This machine has a 6 month warranty because that's about how long it lasts. It will not last a year. I use it for a seasonal concession business (not very busy). Popped twice per day for a about 3 months. The ceiling starts to rust and small rust particles drop down into the machine. We cleaned the machine very well every day including the ceiling. But the moisture from the heat would make it rust over time. Had to be careful toward the end of the season and wipe down the bottom and top again in the morning to make sure we got all the rust out we could. Closed for 4 months, then when time to open for the new season again, we used it 3 times, and the light button broke. So no warming...then a couple days later, the heat quit working. No more popcorn. Not under warranty anymore. This machine should have lasted longer than that if it is "commercial" rated.
    Thank you for your review, Nyla! We are sorry this Carnival King PM30R Royalty Series 8 oz. Red Commercial Popcorn Machine / Popper - 120V, 1320W has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!
    The popper itself works fine, but the switches are of poor quality. One broke in the first few months. It took several weeks to get a warranty replacement. In less than a week, another broke. If you're going to get one of these, keep spare switches on hand. If you're going to use it every day, think about getting a unit of better quality.
    We appreciate your review, Michael. We wish this Carnival King PM30R Royalty Series 8 oz. Red Commercial Popcorn Machine / Popper - 120V, 1320W would have worked out for you. Our Customer Solutions team will remain in contact with you about this.
    Easy to transport and very fast the delicious popcorn use the kit and it was my best purchase I am definitely satisfied with its quality
    This is a horrible machine don't buy, of course kettle stop warming 3 days after warranty was up and company wouldn't do anything about it or even give discount on new order. Mind you this was the second one that we bought from this company so now we are buying #3 but a different brand!!!!! We are a non profit for kids
    Thank you for the review Evenly Hammons. We’re sorry this has not worked well for you. For an alternative that might better meet your needs, check out this Types of Popcorn and Popcorn Machines Buying Guide!
    Produces a full load very quickly. Only used it once but satisfied so far. I didn't realize that the warming light shuts off, but its fine.
    The Carnival King PM30R Commercial Popcorn Machine/Popper is a great addition to our Dub's Cafe Corner in our showroom. Customers can grab a quick snack while shopping.
    This popcorn machine is perfect for your home or business. We use this frequently for movie nights. The popcorn comes out perfect just like the movies .
    This Popcorn Machine is the perfect addition to any party. It's classic looks and light weight design make it easy to transport. The machine works great for hours on end making fresh and delicious popcorn for all to enjoy. We highly reccomned this product.
    the popper is one of our favorite attractions at Movie Day and special events. Mounting it on the wheeled popcorn cart makes it easy to use and move.
    We bought this on 3-15-18. We had two warranty claims on it, which Webstaurant handled brilliantly. However, the day after the 6 month warranty ended, the turn arm broke. I do not see the value in spending money on what would be the 3rd repair requiring a new part in six months time. We are now looking for a better option, and we suggest that you do the same.
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    This machine pops really fast , As for as the value , it's a great value , wish I would have found it years ago , We do concessions at a busy playground , this machine keeps up all night. We are very pleased , and webstraunt store ships quick and are a pleasure to do business with. great customer service.
    I like several other reviewers have had terrible problems with this popper. The kettle would drop for no reason and popcorn and oil would go everywhere. I half way fixed it with a coin put between the metal pieces holding the kettle. Then when I was cleaning the machine I cut several fingers cleaning the sides on the inside of the popper. I had seen that on another review and thought I was being careful but boy it is really sharp. After that I was boiling cleaner in the kettle and when I turned off the kettle it fell and boiling hot disinfectant water got all over my legs. I had on long pants which I striped off immediately while yelling get towels. The kettle hit the back glass and boiling water went on the floor of my home and all in the bottom of the popping machine plus on me. I am scared to use it.
    We appreciate your review, Tommye. We wish this Carnival King PM30R Royalty Series 8 oz. Red Commercial Popcorn Machine / Popper - 110V, 1320W would have worked out for you. Our Customer Solutions team will remain in contact with you about this issue.
    Fantastic product, works every time, Cleans easy and all parts come off! the glass is durable and it runs perfect for hours! There are 3 settings which is perfect for generator use to save power
    We purchased this for parties, Its amazing , heats up quick and makes awesome popcorn and is easy to clean. It has the auto shutoff which I recommend .
    Nothing is better than being able to have movie theater popcorn right at home. The carnival royalty series popcorn machine heats up pretty quick and man oh man delivers a decent amount of popcorn for the family to sit back and enjoy a movie or two. No complaints from me and my family
    I really like this royalty series carnival king popcorn machine it’s so much nicer than the regular 8 ounce popcorn machine it has an extra heating element in it well worth the extra few dollars
    have the whole neighbor hood smelling good I mane sure I pop not on my porch. kids and grand kids love it soon as I see them I hear can you pop some popcorn please
    This popcorn machine looks great in the room but is a pain to work with. The kettle and lid seem loose and flimsy. You go to left the lid to get the last of the popcorn and the kettle just drops. We wish the glass was flush with the bottom, because kernals and crumbs get trapped down in the crack and when you go to clean the machine you slice your finger along the metal edge. It sliced 3 different fingers so far.
    Thanks for the review, Steve. We'd like to better understand the issues you're having with this popcorn popper. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you shortly.
    This machine arrived with a broken glass. I was so disappointed with this machine, it's definitely not for commercial use. The kettle would drop before the popcorn would finish popping and hit up against the glass. It didn't even wort reselling
    Thank you for the review! We are sorry this did not arrive in good condition. Our Customer Solutions team is happy to assist in making your experience with us the best it can be. Please remember to contact them as soon as possible if you find an issue with your order.
    We were looking to buy a popcorn machine for awhile,but could never find one to fit the bill, until now.We have used this machine twice and let me tell you,this popper has the wattage to keep up with hungry football fans. At our consession stand this machine is in constant use and it is simple to operate and it looks really sharp.One thing i have notice is that it is fast even for the first batch 3 min. warm up.As for shipping, everything came in perfectly,

    We upgraded to this machine and very glad we did. It pops twice as much popcorn as our older one. It has a teflon coated pan so nothing sticks and the popping seems very efficient. I like the size. We pop enough corn for about 150 people and as long as we start with some popped in it, we can keep up.
