Product Description


The original volume tester was originally developed in 1952 by Cretors to test the quality of popcorn that was being provided by corn processors. In 1972, the MWVT was developed with counsel and input from the Popcorn Institute. Detailed instructions are developed by the Popcorn Institute and must be followed for results to be considered valid.

The MWVT gave the industry an objective standard against which corn processors could compare their product. How it works: Digital watt meter allows the user to accurately control the power supplied to the popping kettle regardless of voltage supplied to the machine. It also lets the user adjust for variable voltage solutions.

  • Digital temperature control permits accurate temperature to exactly duplicate the test conditions specified by the Popcorn Institute
  • The popping pan is manually charged with specified amounts of corn and coconut oil
  • The popped corn drops through the funnel-shaped hopper into the measuring tube, minimizing corn breakage and providing the most accurate measure of corn expansion
  • Each measuring tube is individually calibrated using a single reference source to ensure accuracy and consistency
  • Before shipment, each MWVT is test popped and compared to a standard unit for reference to assure consistency and accuracy of operation

C. Cretors warrants to the purchaser of each new CRETORS popcorn machine and related products that we will replace f.o.b. our factory any part which proves to be defective in material or workmanship within two years from the date of purchase providing such part is returned to C.

This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may have other rights which vary from state to state.

  1. With all new machines comes a factory registration card, which must be filled out when the machine is installed and returned to CRETORS for the warranty to be in effect.
  2. If it is a replacement part that has failed, the date of installation and invoice number is needed. (It is also a good way to keep track of your service accounts and help us track potential problems.)
  3. If you prefer to have credit issued instead of a replacement sent, the defective part must be received at the factory before the credit will be issued. (The short paying of invoices is not allowed.)
