Glad I got the 8oz kettle. It makes plenty of popcorn for a family of 4 on movie night. Sometimes we have to pop two of the 8oz popcorn packets though. It's smaller than the dementions shown, ( if your thinking glassed in area). The dementions, of the glass area, from left to right / front of machine) are actually about at 14 3/4". The dementions given were for the "ornate top piece" which is a little longer (left to right) & wider (front to rear). The actual dementions from front to back (glassed in area) are 12". (Thus the reason for 4 stars). So it is a bit difficult to scoop the popcorn out with the scoop provided. You have to have a bit of patients to keep from missing the bag & loosing your popcorn on the floor. It is time consuming to clean the unit, but I usually spend about 20-30 minutes after each use to do so. I am pretty tedious about cleaning it thoroughly. But, it makes great popcorn. I have not tried to use popcorn other than the great northern 8oz packets yet. Can't wait to see how it does when we do. Overall though, we're very happy with our purchase. It (so far) works great (we've used it about 6 times since we've had the unit.
We're remodeling our kitchen and putting in quartz countertops. This cutting board is great. It's almost transparent and it stays in place. a real find!!
