Flavocol is usually pretty good - use about 1/8 cup Flavocol for every 1/3 cup popcorn.

If it still isn't working out for you, try Cinemagic Popcorn packs - they give you yellow popcorn kernels and special yellow butter all in one-pack to give that yellow-popcorn look.

Where do I get a new bulb from for a paragon concept 4 machine

You can get it at any hardware store. They are just spot lights, they are not heat lamps.

Some people want the shatter resistant type, you will have to contact a Popcorn Dealer for that style, but it really is not necessary.

Need instruction on a popcorm machine ccp509 and ccp-510. how much oil, butter, popcorn to you put in them. they came with no instruction.

CCP-509 User Manual Instructions for use see Page 7

CCP-510 User Manual Full instructions see Page 10

The instructions for the CCP-509 are not specific about the quantity of oil and kernels to use. The instructions for the CCP-510 are clearer, stating that for every measuring cup full of kernels ( 4 oz.) add 2 tablespoons of light vegetable oil.

I have a Retro Series Popcorn maker, new. Can you tell me the kettle size in OZ, 2,3,4 etc. I have pre-measured packets given to me that are for a 4 oz Kettle. Thanks Dan Martin

Hello Dan, According to the manufacturer specifications, your popcorn popper has a 2 ounce capacity kettle. so you should be able to take those premeasured packets and by using exactly (close enough) half, get the desired results of pop corn out of your popper.

If you also want to use your own popcorn, here's some directions that will let you do that also.

First, turn on the popper and add 1 teaspoon of oil or butter, you can also use Land O' Lakes Margarine as it doesn't burn the popcorn like most butter will do so this is a personal preference (so you can use whatever your preference is but it must be melted). I've not tried it un-melted but I don't think it would work too well.

Then add ¼ cup of unpopped popcorn, brand doesn't matter. Wait and within 5 to 10 minutes it will hve popped.
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
