    • Poor quality
      Verified Purchase

      I was extremely disappointed with this purchase. It's nearly impossible to get the lid to latch on properly by the handle, the wheel doesn't turn smoothly, and the two small clasps to hold on the lid flaps aren't secure. Every time I've used it I've spent several very frustrating minutes trying to secure the lid, then when it's time to get the popcorn out it inevitably spills everywhere because the top clasps aren't secure. :(

    • Simple yet effective
      Verified Purchase

      I have been popping homemade popcorn in my kettle with a lid for years and I have to shake it with oven mitts and try to keep it from burning etc. I can't believe it took me so long to buy one of these and what I like most is its stainless steel instead of aluminum which could slowly leach toxic metals into my food.

      This is definitely a quality product. I've had the thin aluminum type before, and this is far better. I had a little difficulty getting the lid clamped down properly, but once I accomplished that, the popping was a breeze. Very few kernels left when done. Super good.

    • Stainless Steel way better than aluminum!
      Verified Purchase

      I had been looking for a replacement for my aluminum stovetop popcorn popper, which was similar in design, but was a real pain to clean. Every time I used the aluminum popper, a sticky, oily film took major elbow grease to clean, and we could not just wipe it clean either. In contrast, this stainless popper is just about perfect: it makes great popcorn, is easy to clean, and I feel that it will last for years. The gears on the top look and feel sturdy, the clips on the sides fit correctly, and the price was the best I could find anywhere for this type of popper. I only wonder why I did not get this sooner!

    • Top popcorn popper!
      Verified Purchase

      I am a popcorn lover from way back. When I saw this one and read the the description, I knew I had to purchase it! When I received it, was impressed. It has good weight and it looks great! Only another popcorn lover can possibly appreciate this product as I do. My old cornpopper looked exactly the same, but the quality was not good. I threw it away immediately! Luv my new one!

      The best feature of this popper is that it can be used on induction cookware. My old Detonator popper served me well for many years but this is such and improvement now that I cook on induction. The stainless steel is so much easier to clean than the old aluminum one I have. Same great popping quality with virtually no "old maids". The spring on the lid is a bit stiff making it hard to get on and off but I am sure this will loosen up. So glad I found this popper.

      "can replacement gears for this item be ordered? the gears never quite turned smooth and now they won't turn at all. I did make a lot of sticky popcorn in mine but I thought the metal teeth of the gears would hold up...they didn't."

    • Q:

      "Does it work well on a electric glass top stove?"

      • A:

        Yes! We bought it for our cabin and we have an electric glass top stove there, and it works great. It has a totally flat bottom, and I've had no issues at all.

      • A:

        Yes, ive used it on a standard electric stove, gas and now a glass top and it's worked perfectly on all 3 types! it is a quality product. I've had it for a year and highly recommend it!

      • A:

        Yes, this works very well on a electric glass top stove.

      • A:

        I use it on our electric glass stove top too...have to turn it up to a 7-8 to get it going then turn it down once they start popping. Enjoy!

    • Q:

      "One of the comments says this is not induction compatible, while another one says it is. If it is truly stainless steel, then it is magnetic and therefore is induction compatible. Please confirm that this pot is made out of stainless steel and not just a stainless finish over aluminum. I have an induction cooktop. Thank you."

      • A:

        This popcorn popper has a thick heavy stainless steel base which is magnetic and for induction cooking, it is the base that is critical. I had to do a little tweaking with the gears and crank, just tightening the gears on the shafts, nothing major. Also as other have noted the top is a little difficult to secure at first, but even at 85, this old dog did learn a new trick. The flat interior surface of the lid is very easy to clean. My old aluminum popcorn popper had extensive engravings and vent holes that collected grease and were difficult to keep clean. Joseph :. :-)

      • A:

        I have an induction cooktop and it works fine. I've made many batches of popcorn and no issues at all. I looked at the popper to see if there were any marks indicating the material used, but didn't see any.

    • Q:

      "Why did you choose this product?"

      • A:

        Because its stainless steel

      • A:

        I wanted a stainless steel popper at least 6 quart capacity and useable on the stove. Oh, and at a reasonable price.

      • A:

        We love to make popcorn but still like the idea of something sort of ;old-fashioned". Everyone we talk to that has this kind really like it. We could have gotten one from Amazon for about $20.00 but it wasn't stainless. This one should last and last!

      • A:

        better quality than what I now have.

      • A:

        Looks like relatively sturdy construction at a moderate price.

        Reviews

      • A:

        Previously purchased an aluminum popper. After about five usages, the plastic gear broke, (no apparent fault of my own). This stainless steel popper has, what looks to be, brass gears. Hope I have better luck this time.

      • A:

        I've owned 2 others of a different brand all of which have broken do to plastic gears.. Noticed brass gears and thought it may last..

      • A:

        Because of the good reviews I read.

    • Q:

      "Is this pan good for induction cooktop?"

      • A:

        Hello emor, this is not induction compatible. Thanks for shopping with us!

    • Q:

      "Is it made in the USA?"

    • Q:

      "Does the paddle touch the bottom of the pan? the cheaper aluminum poppers have one little wire that is supposed to stir the popcorn, but it doesn't do much, most of the time not even touching the corn. So is the stirring "paddle" more than a piece of wire that dangles near the bottom of the pot? Why can't you show a picture of this "paddle" part?"

      • A:

        that is a good question, why don't they show a picture of the inside of the popper to see the paddle. This does not a wire, it has a paddle, but I can not answer your question, because my popper is defective and being returned for a replacement. The gears didn't connect together all the way, so it didn't stir much...was very frustrated. I only used it one time! now waiting for the replacement-hope it is better!

      • A:

        Hello lookinforquality2, we can confirm there is a paddle inside, however we do not currently have an image of the paddle. If and when the image becomes available we will add it. Thank you for shopping with us.

      • A:

        It does have a paddle that does not quite touch the bottom of the pan, but is close enough to stir the popcorn. There is just enough space between the paddle and the bottom so the paddle does not scratch the bottom as it rotates. I agree that an image would be great.

      • A:

        It has a blade-style stirrer, about 1/2-inch wide. There is a small gap, perhaps 1/16- to 1/8-inch, between the stirrer and the bottom. It is large enough that small kernels sometimes get caught, but is no problem as they work or pop loose. It does a thorough job in stirring. I have had around 5 of this type popper and this is, by far, the best one.

      • A:

        I have had this for over a year and it has held up really well. The paddle reaches the bottom- but doesn't scrape the metal.

      • A:

        It has a strip of stainless steel that has a bend in it on each side that goes across the pan,it is attached to a 'pole' that is turned by the gear that you see on the top, and does not quite touch the bottom of the pan. It works well.

      • A:

        The paddle does sit just over the bottom. There is not enough room for a un-popped piece of popcorn to slip under the paddle. This works really good. I'm very happy with it. The paddle is in a slight z shape that goes out to the outer edges. It is not a wire, rather a blade. It does a great job at keeping all of the popcorn moving, as I've never had one burned piece.

    • Q:

      "Can this product be used on top of an electric stove?"

      • A:

        Hello rileydog0424, yes the Stainless Steel 6.5-qt Stovetop Popcorn Popper can be used on an electric stove. Hope this information was helpful. Thank you for shopping with us!

      • A:

        Yes it works great.

      • A:

        Yes = we use it daily on our glass top electric range

      • A:

        Yes , I have great success using it and I have an electric smooth top stove.

      • A:

        Yes, It is no different than using any other cooking pan. I use it on my electric stove with GREAT results.

      • A:

        Yes. It works well on mine.

      • A:

        Yes! That's what I use.

      • A:

        Yes it can. Set the heat for medium and set the popper with oil and one kernel of popcorn on the burner. When the kernel pops, add the rest of the popcorn. Turn the crank and 2 1/2 to 3 mins you have perfect popcorn.

    • Q:

      "Does this take the 4, 6, or 8 oz packets of popcorn?"

      • A:

        Hello drdeb55, Thank you for inquiring about the Stainless Steel 6.5-qt Stovetop Popcorn Popper. It will take of those sizes, it depends on how much you want to pop. Thank you for shopping with us.

      • A:

        The instructions say add 1/2 cup of popcorn

      • A:

        I tried the 8 oz pkg and it was too much. The popcorn got stuck before I could pour it out of the pot. I would recommend the 4 oz. not sure about the 6 oz.

      • A:

        I have used 1/2 cup, and it fills the popper up.

      • A:

        Save your money and just use fresh popcorn in a bag. You don't need the microwave styled popcorn for this. Fresh popcorn (1/2 cup) and a small amount of cooking oil (1-3 Tablespoons) is all that you need! The flavor is incredible! I wanted to get away from the un-healthy microwave popcorn with all of the un-needed chemicals, so this is perfect for me. I love it!

      • A:

        I would not do it; the wood handles likely would not stand up to a dishwasher.

      • A:

        Should be, but why? It's cleans up in the sink in about 30 seconds/

      • A:

        no, just hand wash and air dry.
