So Far, Works Great
on September 30, 2013
I didn't find any reviews for this prior to ordering it; and other brands of similar poppers seemed to have some complaints about them burning out rapidly, so I was a little worried that the design itself might simply be problematic. However, this is made by the company that makes the big industrial poppers for theatres etc., so I figured their little poppers might be well built too. It seems sturdy and well designed. The base, as you can see from the photo, has a flare, which helps to stabilize the unit. It has a nice, broad chute design with a well fitting measuring/butter cup. We've used it a few times and it works perfectly. It blows all of the popped corn neatly into a bowl placed under the chute, with no kernels flying off, and it pops really virtually every single kernel (like, 1 or 2 might remain in the unit). The popped corn is light, airy, fluffy, crispy, and not burnt, and there is no burnt odor or similar problem from the unit. And it works very quickly, much faster than a microwave. So we are quite happy with it.
