I did a search and didn't come up with any results. Anyone have any experience with Paramount Popcorn Machines? A 6 oz machine comes with a warming deck. I was thinking about the Paragon, but this is about 50% of the cost. It has a 5 yr warranty versus the lifetime for Paragon. I just wanted to know if it was a waste of money for anyone or not.

Me thinks you will probably get what you pay for. Paragon makes a great product. Do you have a link or pics of the Paramount popper?

Just fyi I'm not so sure about the 5 year warranty. I had some trouble with a machine I got from them, an 8 oz bar style without the cart, and have not been able to really get them to call me back..I don't even think they've been in biz for 5 years.
I opened up the gear box and their "all metal gears" weren't so much...metal, that is.

Check out your options first for sure,
T

Stay clear from Paramount. I emailed them to ask them for a phone number and they would not provide it. I asked for a copy of their warranty . .. they would not provide it. Smells very fishy!

a 6 year-old thread! I'm getting a 6 oz paramount popper tomorrow...If it holds up, then it's a keeper. I am just tired of sooo many 'companies' making crap This 6 oz was the right size, and budget for my theater...(you can see my old 2.5 oz popper in my sig below). Any of you guys still have these?
