I've had mine for a year now. After about 3 uses, one of the wheels broke off, so now I have to prop it up on a box of something handy. While the popcorn cooks, I have to tilt the kettle a few times, or else when its popping, it jams. If I'm not there and tilting the kettle every few moments, the jam happens suddenly and then I have to take a knife out and hack away at the mass of now burning popcorn. I still have it and use it, I just can't leave it unattended at all and have to have it sit on something.
Although it quickly makes tasty popcorn, this machine is TOO SMALL.
It's a pain to get the popcorn out without burning yourself - we've resorted using a vinyl pasta tool - the kind that is like a spoon/fork to drag it out.
Cleaning is a pain. The plexiglass gets greasy from the oil that splatters all over and I haven't found anything that cleans it well. And, you can't fit your hand inside without disassembling the kettle!
Lastly, there is no way to separate the unpopped kernels from the popped. The large machines have the holes in the bottom with a pull out pan.
I wish I would have spent the extra money and bought a full size machine!
I am disappointed with the size of the kettle. The specs in the ad says it pops one gallon of popcorn, per batch. In fact, the info on the box says it only does up to 8 cups (1/2 gallon). The reason I ordered this one was BECAUSE of the increased size per batch.
This machine makes great tasting popcorn. Does not pop as much as they say it does, but enough for 2 at a time. Be carefull removing popcorn. the space is tight. After I used mine, I bought 3 more for xmas gifts. They were all excited and love the product.
I understand the 22 high, but which is which as far as the other two measurements. What is meant by "15 inches long"-- which direction is "long" and which direction is "wide".specialvolunteer1 on Jan 1, 2015Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
