1951 8 Ounce Popper

The 1950s were a sentimental time – a cool era that immediately evokes visions of Grease and Happy Days’ diners. Retro diners were bright, nostalgic, and theatrical -- quintessential Americana, yet fun and whimsical. Particularly reminiscent of the 1950s era is the icon style of the diner and the iconic rounded shape top of the juke box. Paragon’s 1951 captures the feel of the 1950’s diner where it was a time to play the juke box and celebrate the boys back from the war, a time to relax and enjoy family, friends and rock & roll. The popper is a natural product to capture the elements of a diner or juke box - it’s practically a law that a vintage jukebox has to have excessive amounts of chrome, steel castings, and glass panels.   Diners and jukeboxes became pop culture icons with age, so did their art styles and nostalgic appeal.

Though evoking the vintage design of the time, every Paragon popper includes the latest in popper technology and is built for commercial quality to ensure dependability and performance. Each full-featured machine pops delicious, theater-quality popcorn in 3-5 minutes, is easy to use and easy to maintain. This 8 ounce popcorn machine creates 147 one ounce servings per hour for maximum output, and its spring-assisted kettle makes it easy to unload popcorn when the cooking cycle is completed. Its two-switch operation is simple to operate. The aerated warming deck keeps your food warm while catching kernels and smaller bits for easy cleaning.
