    Were can I purchase the oil/flavoring/butter/popcorn for a 2oz kettle popper I purchases?

    Does not look like there are any local theater supply places in the Pottstown PA area.

    I've been using store bought canola oil w/ bulk purchased popcorn & flavoring salt in my 4 oz popper. I tried the ready portioned packets, but felt they were messy, salty & greasy. It took me a few tried to get the ratios where I like them, but I'm very happy with the results. I use a baster to squirt the oil in the kettle and measuring scoops for the popcorn & salt. Also, it's important to get movie theater popcorn bags...it makes the popcorn taste better!

    hi Mark

    Id just use a microwave to melt the better. I have a commerical butter dispenser but it is a real PITA because if you dont quickly use the butter you will have mold build up.

    Regards

    Gregg

    PS: I have a sencore VP-300 HD signal generator and a Progressive Labs analyzer for sale for CHEAP. I sent you an email but it bounced. Send me an email if interested.

    The Gold'N Touch topping:

    http://www.popcornpopper.com/77421.html

    Is already in liquid form so it is just a matter of warming it up. I was thinking about using a small plastic pump dispenser that is microwaveable to warm it up but I am not sure if Rubbermaid or whoever makes one.

    I sent you an email Gregg.
