Buying a popcorn maker for your home or business is a fantastic idea. Many people would like to own a popcorn maker but do not know how to go about purchasing one. This article will teach you how to buy a popcorn machine for yourself or your business.
The first issue to consider is the location of your popcorn machine. Deciding where you are going to put your popcorn machine will determine what size you can buy. The size of the machine will usually dictate the price of the popcorn maker. Keep in mind that you not only have to determine the size of the space the popper will be occupying, but also the size of the doorways leading to the space it will be occupying.
Size will also be determined not only by the amount of space you have to hold your popcorn machine, but also by the use you will be putting it to. For instance, you will not want to get a small tabletop machine if you are planning on using the popcorn popper to sell popcorn at a carnival.
Next you will want to get a general idea of how much you can spend on your new machine. Smaller popcorn makers are usually less expensive. You’ll want to note that buying a pre-owned popcorn popper or a popper from an ecommerce store will save you money.
Pre-owned popcorn makers can be purchased at estate sales, online stores, and from newspaper advertisements. These machine may also be purchased at fairs, carnivals, and amusement parks that sell their equipment once they’ve reached full depreciation. Expect to pay much less for a used machine than for a brand new machine from a brick-and-mortar store.
Once you have determined how much you can spend you can then determine where you will buy your popper. Brick-and-mortar stores give you the advantage of being able to see and touch the machine. Testing the new machine will probably not be possible until after you have purchased it.
Online retailers are great for providing low cost popcorn machines. Reviews, images, and manufacturer specs can all be accessed within an online retailer’s store. In addition to being able to read reviews and receiving great prices, you won’t have to pay sales tax unless you buy from a store in your state.
I hope you enjoyed this article on buying a popcorn maker. Use these tips wisely and you will have a smooth and easy popcorn popper purchase.
