Robopop® is new generation of popcorn machines. This machines made based on new patented technology “Vortex Popcorn™”: popcorn grains rapidly heated, popped and vortexed away from the hot zone immediately after popping. That’s why the thermal impact is very short – it saves the taste of the product and makes it healthier. Also, there is no oil needed to pop the grains in Vortex technology. It means that “air”-pop does not contain any trans fats. The oil is used at the final stage to give the finished product a taste and aroma. This technology called Vortex Popcorn™ and patented in the US, Europe and other countries.
How does Vortex Popcorn™ machine work?
Popcorn kernels are evenly distributed over the parabolic bottom of the machine internal chamber. The vortex of hot air flow inside the chamber provides constant corn rotation around the chamber axis and its simultaneous agitation. This process provides fast and uniform popcorn kernels heating and immediate popping. Vortex air stream inside the chamber instantly withdraws popped corn from the hot zone profoundly improving popcorn taste and quality.
In other contemporary big hot air poppers, unlike Robopop®, popped kernels stay for some time inside the overheated work chamber; this makes them tough, chewy and similar to styrofoam.
By implementing vortex technology we’ve made Robopop® machines absolutely different from other hot air poppers. In Robopop® popped kernels are immediately taken away from the hot zone by vortex air stream, as a result popcorn is crunchy, tender and full of taste.
