C. Cretors and Company, the leading designer and manufacturer of food processing and concession equipment for over 126 years, is highlighting the OriginateAir and Mach 5 at ShowCanada 2011, being held at the Westin Ottawa Hotel in Ontario on June, 1 2011. Information on the new OriginateAir, the latest addition to its hot air popping and puffing equipment line, and the Mach 5, Cretors’ fifth generation concession popcorn popper will be available at booth 12.

Designed for caramel corn shops and other concession locations, the OriginateAi r continuously pops and puffs popcorn and other healthy snacks in a steady current of hot air, creating uniform popcorn with very little scrap. A built in sifter removes unpopped and undersized kernels, while a digital control panel allows the operator to set an exact temperature for the best popping efficiency depending on the grade and popcorn used.

The stainless steel popper is a smaller version of Cretors’ original Model 80 Continuous Hot Air Popper, measuring in at 34”D x 76” W x 63” H. Customers can add the Cretors 50 pound Caramelizer for a complete popper and coater combination that creates consistently coated caramel popcorn.

The Mach 5 Ventless Hood Popper, available in 20, 32, 48 and 60 oz. kettle sizes, comes fully equipped with two heat lamps located inside the cabinet, allowing for storage of fresh, crisp and savory popcorn. Also included are two halogen lights permitting users increased visibility and ease-of-use operation. The rust-free, stainless steel frame gives the popper an attractive appearance while creating a durable, safe and stable machine. An optional control allows the user to change between “salted” and “sweet” corn production.
