The unit showed up VERY quickly, a day early even! It looked just like the unit in the picture (that does not always happen with online shopping as you know) so that was a good start. The unit did not work right out of the box but with a little electrical repair it was up and running in minutes. The instructions were average at best but good enough. It came with glass doors which was a nice addition as the book said plastic ones were in the box. The glass helps keep everything warm longer. We did lots of experiments for amount of ingredients to add. It came with a salt shaker and measuring spoons/cups for the oil salt & seeds, but in the end the premixed packages advertised on the site are the way to go! We used it for a fund raiser at the school and family and friend movie nights at home. Nothing like Theater Popcorn at home!
Unpacking it from the box it seemed to be a very nice unit. Within a couple of minutes of inspecting it I noticed a screw loose on the base. I had to replace it with a larger sheet metal one because the whole base had dropped about a 3/8 of an inch. No problem...things happen. Well the hinges on the kettle are made from bent metal, not a rod hinge style. This doesn't let the doors of the kettle work properly. They constantly bind allowing them to catch open during popping. In fact I had to re-bend one door hinge because it kept letting the door fall off entirerly.
The unit itself works great otherwise. I've owned other machines, each with their own issues, but for the price, this one is not bad. If the manufacturer used a better hing sysytem I would rate it higher.
