My Mom loved this as a christmas gift. She says it comes in handy for movie night with the grandkids! There's nothing like freshly popped popcorn when your at home looking at movies! It's like being out at the movie theatre in your own home!
I never write reviews, but this popcorn popper is worth it. After first use one of the screws that holds the clear box to the red top cracked through. Several uses later another corner cracked at the screw. Then one side was no longer connected to the top.
When the popper is in use the popcorn blows everywhere. I resorted to putting a towel over the popper and the bowl. I have returned this item and would never recommend it to anyone.
I needed a popcorn popper, and after searching and reading reviews, I finally settled on this one about a year and a half ago. The popper looks great and it is really easy to clean, however, it has a few major issues:
1. In order to pop the kernels efficiently, I had to let the machine warm up for at least 10 minutes before adding popcorn.
2. When adding popcorn, I had to add about a third of the included measure (1/3 of a 1/4 cup) or I wound up with at least half of the kernels I put into the machine unpopped.
3. The wheels are placed awkwardly and they do not accommodate large bowls.
All that aside, I was surprised that it lasted as long as it did with the fact that I didn't give it 15 minutes to cool down between bouts of adding popcorn. If you follow the instructions to the letter, you wind up with popcorn that takes forever to pop and at least half the kernels are left unpopped.
If you need cheap, it should be okay while looking for a more durable popper. If you want quality, get a different popper.

I received the popcorn maker. Plugged it in, turned it on and let it warm up for five minutes.
The machine NEVER heated up. WTH?
I plugged it in to another outlet, same thing happened.
I plugged it in to yet another outlet, it never came on.
I bought this to use at my daughter's baby shower. This was so disappointing.
How is it that a brand new popcorn maker does not work when you plugg it in.
This is a piece of JUNK!
DO NOT BUY IT. Dont waste your money folks.

Haven't used this product yet so I am giving it 4 stars.
The product was pretty much ready to be used straight out of the box. It looks very cute and fun, and it will be used in our Media Room. I can't say whether or not it works because we haven't used it yet. But once we do use it, I'll definitely come back and re-rate it. Right now it's just a decoration until we finish the room.

Does this actually stand up on a table or cabinet or does it sit on the floor? I know its probably not the best or smartest question to ask, but im looking for one to put in my front office and need it to be able to stand in a corner itself and not be set on anything.gmcgowan on Aug 2, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
