I purchased this popper for my husband for use at his garage hangout where he and guy friends work on cars and socialize. He tried it Christmas Day and after the first use the door to the machine developed several small cracks. I contacted customer service who sent out a new door via the Great Northern Company. We were very pleased with the customer service. And, oh, yes, the popcorn tastes great!
Jut want to say, anyone who buys this item will have a perfect holiday and party addition to add fun for all...

I did a lot of researching before purchasing this machine and I'm very happy with this purchase. It's easy to use and the popcorn tastes great, I would recommend getting the prepackaged Great Northern popcorn though, it's a lot easier and it tasted better than trying to measure and make our own. If you do make your own you have to get flavacol if you want that true movie theater popcorn taste and use coconut oil! Shipping was quick and everything was packaged very well and intact. What little bit needed to be put together was super easy, we were popping popcorn in a matter of minutes. It does come with some paper bags and plastic containers, the writing on the containers comes off easily but they're a nice added bonus, the kids enjoyed each having their own. It also comes with measuring spoons and a scoop but I found those to be useless because it didn't say what size they were. If you get the prepackaged portions you don't need them anyways. I would highly recommend this popcorn machine to anyone looking to make your own movie theater popcorn at home, it's a great addition to our family movie nights!!
I bought this for my church to be used for any youth get together, movie night or any social event that popcorn could be served. I tested it at home and did not want to give it away. The only assembly was to install the kettle and the front door. The smell of it cooking brings people around. I use the 8 oz packet with white and yellow corn and coconut oil. Heat oil until you see some smoke Coming from kettle, then pour everything in.
This machine works amazing! I bought it for our office to make popcorn for our personnel and boy did it make an impact! Everybody loved the popcorn, so I made it twice a week. It cooks the popcorn and then keeps ti heated under the lamp just like at the theatre. It is fairly large so it does not store in a typical cabinet space so we store it on the top of the fridge. Could not be happier with it. I now have many more friends. Popcorn makes friends. This popcorn machine makes lots of popcorn.
The machine is easy to clean, compact but does its job. The machine came in with a crack on the door; however, Overstock provided excellent customer service and I received a new door that my husband easily replaced and installed the new one.
