Patented and Award Winning ®Ye Olde Kettle Cooker®
® is engineered, designed and built
to cook kettle popcorn to perfection..from the now famous kettle corn
to kettle caramel corn, butter flavorved, cheese, BBQ and cinnamon.
Kettle cooked popcorn produces the old fashioned taste; hearty and flavorful.
The original flavored popcorns were developed in the fireplace using
a kettle and a wooden paddle in the 1800's. Our task was to duplicate
the fireplace kettle using modern technology, while producing a 3-minute
cooking operation. It was our goal to develop a real workhorse kettle
cooker. The cooker was two years in the making to achieve perfection,
and continues to evolve with significant improvements to maintain this
industry high perfection. Designed primarily to commercially produce
high volumes of kettle popcorn and other flavored popcorn, the Ye Olde
Kettle Cooker® is in fact very versatile, in that it can also be
used to cook pork rinds, coated nuts, kettle chips, deep-fried Twinkies®,
Oreos®, funnel cakes, turkey legs, fish, fries and more.
kettle corn cookers are individually hand-made by highly skilled, professional
craftsmen using the highest quality raw materials and UL listed parts
available. Superior to both Cast Iron and Stainless Steel as
a cooking surface, our choice of material for the cooking bowl and the
cooker lid is decarburized (non-carbon) steel. This material transfers
heat rapidly and evenly, is the preferred cooking surface of typical
restaurant equipment, and also best accommodates the porcelain ceramic
coating that we apply to our cooker lids.
®Ye Olde Kettle Cooker®"
is further built to conform to the rigid NSF Standards, independently
tested and certified by Intertek Testing Services as meeting these standards,
with each cooker bearing the ETL
Sanitation Listing Mark; Tested and certified to meet ANSI/NSF 2002e
standards. This certification process also requires
Intertek Testing to continually and randomly inspect our manufacturing
facilities, the manufacturing process, our parts inventory and the finished
product to assure that each cooker is manufactured to the strict standards
to which we were certified. This certification, coupled with
our industry high 3-year warranty, is a testimony to the quality of
our product and the strict standards to which we adhere in the manufacturing
process. We do not build some junk cooker (referred to as a ®toy®
in the industry) using Hobart mixing bowls, junkyard parts, furnace
valves, garage door springs or rusty old steel. We build the
highest quality kettle corn cooker in the world.
also periodically take cookers used in our busiest Amusement parks,
after receiving thousands of hours of strenuous use and abuse, so we
can remove and inspect each part to discern any weakness or improvements
we need to address. In most of these cases we refurbish their
original cooker, and send it back to the park for an additional season(s)
of grueling use and abuse®so we can again test the metal for fatigue,
and the cooker for potential weak spots.
Ye Olde Kettle Cooker® is very operator-friendly. Internal
heat shields minimize the heat transfer where the operator stands, and
the patented torsion spring dumping system makes dumping very easy.
Our specialty high temp. coatings on the cooker lid and
cabinet allow for easy cleanup and maintenance, as does the Premier
colored stainless steel we handcraft the receiving tub setup from. Optional
accessories, such as the Automatic Mixer are also very operator friendly®as
well as a tremendous labor saver.
®Ye Olde Kettle Cooker®
® has been the workhorse of kettle corn cookers,
and has been independently ranked as the #1
choice among Amusement Theme parks, Family Entertainment Centers
