C. Cretors and Company, the leading designer and manufacturer of food processing and concession equipment for over 120 years, introduces its Flo-Thru 80 Popper and Coater for theaters and large concession areas. The industry's only popcorn machine that enables the production of original popcorn and caramel corn on-site, the Flo-Thru 80 popcorn machine is a complete and compact production line for in-house operations.

  • Revolutionary concession equipment produces healthy caramel corn

An automatic continuous dry popcorn machine, the Flo-Thru 80 Popper is equipped with Cretors patented hot air suspension system that eliminates the need for using fattening oils, such as coconut oil, in popping to create a healthier finished product. Instead, kernels are popped in a steady current of hot air where they are uniformly heated to the optimal popping temperature. Increasing the ease of use, the Flo-Thru 80 Popper is equipped with the industry's first digital temperature control, which eliminates the guesswork associated with popping corn by allowing the concession equipment operator to set an exact temperature for the best popping efficiency. With a production capacity of up to 80 lbs. of popcorn per hour, the Flo-Thru 80 popcorn machine is designed to meet high volume demands of popcorn and caramel corn.

  • Easy to use concession equipment accommodates highly trafficked areas

An ideal partner for the Flo-Thru 80 popcorn machine, the stainless steel Flo-Thru 80 Coater is equipped with a salt feed system and oil/slurry pump with spray and a coating drum that is driven by a digital control panel to ensure a consistently produced product every time. The digital control panel directs the coating drum to move in either a forward or reverse rotation, while also controlling the salt and pump speed, to ensure an even distribution of coating for caramel corn and other popcorn snacks. For ease of mobility, the Flo-Thru 80 Coater is equipped with locking swivel casters. Both the Flo-Thru 80 popcorn machine and Coater concession equipment are UL approved.
