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.
This is better than expected. It holds enough for a family and is thick to prevent scorching Was definitely worth buying and recommend purchasing. Good popper and.good price.
This item is lots of fun and makes great "movie" popcorn if you use the mix. I cannot speak to using other popcorn mixes except the Roosevelt brand. Not so much fun to clean but that was expected. Comes in lots of pieces and is a lot easier to put together with two people. Instructions were not complete and stopped with 3 pieces left to go. We figured it out but it would have been nice to have the compete description. As is typical of these Made in China items, the screws and holes were not always perfectly aligned and took some elbow grease to shove things into place. All in all, a great statement piece for the price and we are glad we bought the cart and not just the top.
I love this product, it makes the best popcorn and it is easy to use. The only complaint I have is that I have had the machine for 2 years and it is rusting. The inside on the top has rusted, as well as other inside parts.
