Price List of Popcorn Machines for Commercial & Personal Use

If you’re reading this, chances are you’re looking for a popcorn machine for your popcorn business or a portable popcorn machine for making popcorn at home.

I’ve developed this guide and divided it into various sections to meet your needs.

If you’re going to buy a popcorn machine, it’s best you consider your needs first.

Typically, the commercial popcorn machines are bulkier, produce a large amount of popcorn at a time and, at the same time, are more expensive.

There are lots of portable popcorn machines in Nigeria that you can actually operate in your kitchen or even right there on your dining table. But few persons are actually aware of this.

If you plan to host a family party, or even for your kid’s birthday, you can go for one of such since these portable popcorn machines are quite cheap, easy to operate and produce good quality popcorns.

I’ve divided this review of some of the best popcorn machines in Nigeria into two obvious categories: large popcorn machines for commercial use and portable popcorn machines for home/private use.


A. Popcorn Machines for Popcorn Business in Nigeria

Popcorn business is amongst one of the fastest growing industries in Nigeria. That’s a fact. But the location is very important. If you can get a good location, then you can easily make some money.

However, before you start, you’ll obviously need to invest in a popcorn machine.

For most new business owners like you, cost price is a huge factor in their choice of machine. I believe that price always plays an important role in anything we want to invest in.

While I believe you should stay within your budget, you should, however, ensure you go for the best you can afford. Also, if you find one that’s good enough, it’s better you wait and save for it. Remember you’ll have competition in the market.

Below, I’ve collected and reviewed some of the best popcorn machines in Nigeria for starting your popcorn business.

    The size of the popper machine will determine how many cups of popcorn you can make. It is never a good idea to overfill a popcorn machine because it can cause jamming or heat and steam to build up.
