We've owned this machine for 3 months and consistently use it one or two times a week for our home theater. It's been a great machine - the stirring rod has never jammed, it's easy to clean and makes popcorn fast.

I did a bit of research before buying. Here's the key features on this machine that aren't on the others in its price range:

-- Really easy to clean kettle. It rotates down and the stirring rod stays affixed to the underside of the top of the machine. This makes it really easy to wipe out the kettle since there isn't a stirring mechanism in the way.

-- When you lift the lid on the kettle it sticks to a magnet on the underside of the top. This keeps it out of the way for adding popcorn or cleaning.

-- A heater beneath the popcorn to keep it warm. Most machines just have a lamp, which really doesn't do much. A dedicated heating element does a much better job. Also a bright lamp is distracting when watching a movie. I replaced my with a much lower wattage bulb, but since it has a separate heater the popcorn still stays warm.

-- Tempered glass walls. A nice touch and easier to clean, although the door is plexiglass.

-- 4 oz kettle. I've found this to be the perfect size for 2 adults and 2 kids. It will four small bags that are about 3" wide by 6" tall (labeled as 1 oz bags of course). Once you have a popcorn machine you love to have fresh popcorn but you also don't need a big huge bag. I'd wouldn't recommend a 2 oz kettle for anybody, it's just not enough for anything other than one person. A 6 oz kettle would be better for parties or more than 4 people, but I just pop two batches when we have guests.

Other machines have these features (such as the Paragon units) but they cost around $300. This is a great deal and I'd buy it again.

This was a wonderful addition to our home! From young to old enjoyed watching this old time looking popper make our favorite movie snack. It will fit just fine on the end of a counter or vanity/sofa size table.
Everything works as expected. One tip however, if you purchase the premixed bags of oil, kernels and seasoning; cut the end with the oil only and squeeze it into the hopper then cut the kernel and seasoning portion of the bag. This will allow the oil to get to the bottom of the hopper. Our first batch clumped together as the bag instructions didn't include this tip. 2 bag fulls will furnish a family of 6 and some may have seconds. There are all types of corn available, I think we will try kettle corn next. Well worth the extra money. The manufacturing is solid with glass and steel structure with steel hinges, easy cleanup design and comes with kernel measuring cup and oil spoon, salt shaker and popcorn scooper for the mix it yourselfers out there. The warming light keeps the popcorn fresh and warm for hours too. We thank the designers on this one!

I purchased this item in June and started using upon completion of home theater in July. Using Great northern popcorn mix also purchased on Amazon. Somewhat of a learning curve but over time was able to make really good popcorn. A few learnings:

1-Heat the unit up for 4-5 mins before adding the oil/butter mix.
2-Only cut the pouch that holds the oil/butter mix, then when ready to add the kernels, cut that pouch.
3-I add the salt mix last and don't use all the salt. Too much for my taste.

Would be nice if the kettle was a little lower as it would be easier to add the ingredients.
I still can only get about 75-80% of the kernels to pop. Seems a big waste.

Again the system worked really well and wasn't that difficult to clean with paper towels and an occasional rinse of the parts that could be removed.

Here is my latest issue however. The mixing part of the kettle, and it seems specifically the motor that turns it, has lost some of its power and gets stuck while the kernels are popping. THis just started about 2weeks ago and no matter what I have tried is still happening. I basically have to keep lowering the kettle or raising the lid to clear the kettle so that the mixer starts turning again. I will be contacting the manufacture to understand why this is happening. If the motor has already started to go bad then I would not recommend this unit for purchase. If its a bad motor and the company sends me a new one free of charge then I could change my opinion.

If anyone else reading this has this issue as well please let me know if you were able to fix it.

Thanks and hope this was helpful!

9/4/12 Update: Well I called the manufacturer and explained what was happening. She agreed that it was probably the motor.

The EPM-450 is just what the popcorn maniac needs for his serious home theater popcorn taste. It is a 4oz. popper and for two to four people it is ideal. I purchased the 8oz pre-measured popcorn packets with oil, salt and kernels and split them. That way if I need more I can make more (in about 4 -5 minutes)... if not I don't waste half the popcorn. The cost for the 4oz and 8oz is the same where I shop so twice the amount for the same price.

The popper makes a nice addition to my theater experience. I have had no problems with it and it works as advertised. The vendor shipped on time and it arrived the exact day I needed it without having to expedite it with air freight.
