Take note, this is a SINGLE serving popper. I knew this when I bought it so was not disappointed in the size. We have used it 4 times and only once got a perfect batch--however, only about 1/2 of the kernels popped. That is not necessarily the popper. My guess is the popcorn. We will be trying a different brand, The hot kernels have pitted the container which is to be expected because it's plastic. Bottom line: it's okay but nobody is willing to toss out the microwave bag popcorn yet.
The first time I used the popper, I followed the directions of cooking the popcorn 5 minutes and it burned all of the popcorn. The popper cleaned up well, but don't use the directions included. My microwave is mid strength and I only cook 2 minutes maximum. Listen for the popping and time accordingly.

I mis-read the description and didn't realize that this is a SINGLE serving container. It is very small. I owned a microwave popcorn popper that is comparable to a medium bag like at the movies (somewhere around 3 6-ounce servings). Thanks to the hubby's love for popcorn, it went south (but after almost 3 years of almost weekly use). This little unit is good for watching carbs I suppose, but I would not buy it again.

Hi gypsybell12, after reviewing with our support staff we found that for oil-popped popcorn you will need 0.5 teaspoon of oil and 2 tablespoons of popping corn and for air-popped corn simply add 2 tablespoons of popping corn. I hope this helps, thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 24, 2014
