Welcome to the Online Popcorn Safety Training Program

Our Safety program is both serious and comprehensive. When you have completed this training program you will have a very full understanding of the issues and precautions regarding popcorn machines which will greatly decrease the likelihood of injuries. If you are renting from us and reading this you have promised to successfully complete our Safety Certification Program. If you decide you do not want, or you can not complete and pass the Safety Certification Program, we will provide trained and certified staff, for your party, at your expense. At no time will we leave any of our equipment to be used without a competent, certified supervisor.


Popcorn Photos
Here is the step by step setup procedure illustrated with staff photos. It is still necessary to read the written material, and watch the video for full understanding of what they are doing in the photos.

Delicious warm, salted popcorn scooped into personal bags, Popcorn traveling case protects machine during travel. Unfasten 'safety belt' on the popcorn carrier. Lift off red cover to reveal popcorn machine. Lift popcorn machine out of black base.

Refasten 'safety belt' on the popcorn carrier. Put the machine on top of the case. Make sure it is correctly placed, level and firm. WHEN YOU ARE READY TO POP POPCORN . . . 1. TURN ON ALL SWITCHES
2. PREHEAT THE KETTLE FOR 5-10 MINUTES. 3. CUT TOP OF BAG OPEN WITH SCISSORS OF THE NAKS PAK POPCORN. PUT OIL INTO KETTLE. Wait a few minutes, then . . . Test if the kettle is hot enough by putting in a few kernels and see if they pop. PUT SEED & SALT INTO KETTLE. Keep machine doors open. Be careful not to get burned by kettle.

Listen for popping, as popping slows down get ready to dump. WHEN POPCORN HAS mostly POPPED, EMPTY KETTLE. Before stopping CONTINUE POPPING 4-5 MORE PAKS/BATCHES. 4. After making several batches, dump & TURN KETTLE SWITCH AND KETTLE MOTOR SWITCH OFF. Leave doors open when switches are on and actively popping, close doors when switches are off to keep popcorn warm.
Tasty, movie style popcorn ready to serve with scoop and bags. Serve, make more as needed, but always make a few batches at a time.

REMOVE LEFTOVER POPCORN, PUT IN PLASTIC BAGS WITH TWIST TIES. IT WILL STAY FRESH FOR the next day or so.

EMPTY 'OLD MAID' PAN (LITTLE PAN ON BOTTOM THAT CATCHES THE UNPOPPED SEEDS)

LET KETTLE COOL DOWN UNTIL IS NOT TOO HOT BUT STILL WARM

Pack machine back into carrying case.

 

Take machine off the case. Take red cover off black base Put machine into black base. Adjust machine in base.

Put red cover over machine

Back at the warehouse; UNPLUG THE KETTLE AND REMOVE IT FROM THE MACHINE. Use A MILD DEGREASER (DISH SOAP) AND A CLOTH WIPE DOWN KETTLE, KETTLE LIDS AND OUTSIDE OF KETTLE. NEVER IMMERSE THE KETTLE IN WATER. WIPE DOWN BOTTOM PAN WITH MILD DEGREASER AND CLOTH. WIPE DOWN GLASS WITH GLASS CLEANER.

Videos

Most of the videos are under a minute each. Please listen to, and view, each segment. When you press on a link in the box at the bottom (or to the right,) of  this screen, your computer will get the video segment you requested and then the computer will prepare the clip to play on a Real One Player, (or another player,) which is normally already on your computer. The whole process may take a minute or so depending on the speed of your Internet connection, the speed of your computer, and how many other people are viewing the videos at the same time you want to view them.  While you are waiting use the time to read the included material below.  We suggest the videos if you can only select one training method. The best method is the Video and written material together, which starts below. The Slide Presentation is optional. There are step by step photos also below, but you need to watch the video/read the material to fully understand the photos.
(Sometimes the video on Real Player will stop prematurely, so be sure each segment is viewed completely!)
