The biggest issue of this popper is that unpopped kernels tend to fly out of the container, like hot air poppers which blow many of the good kernels out. You should monitor it and shake the handle when popping starts to minimize waste. Quality gourmet popcorn like Orville Redenbacher's is a larger kernel and will yield bigger, fluffier popcorn per batch.

Naturally, you will have to wipe out the inside before the first use to get any dust and loose styrofoam out. Then rinse and dry the kettle, plug the kettle in, slip on the mount, and screw in the handle counterclockwise.

Instructions say to run the kettle empty 3-5 mintues just to heat up BEFORE you add 2 teaspsoons of oil and popcorn. The instructions get fuzzy at this point. It says, "... add _ cup of popcorn..." Cup of what? I called and found out just one scoop - equal to 1/4 cup. Don't double it or you risk burning and stuck kernels. It yields 2 quarts which is pretty good. Measuring spoons are provided for oil and popcorn, but no scoop. But the door and opening tray should make popcorn retrieval easy enough.

The sound of the motor spinning is much quieter than hot air poppers which sound like rattling blow dryers. This should let you make more popcorn mid movie with less distraction. This unit is more work for popcorn. However, we live with the trouble because we want theater quality popcorn, right?

As I understand, theater's use coconut oil. I use peanut oil because of the high burn temperature, it will never smoke and hydrogenate. You can make batch, after batch, of delicious popcorn, but sooner or later, you have to turn it off and clean the kettle. Unplug the unit, wait for it to cool, unscrew the handle, unplug the kettle and remove it. Then a nice soak in hot soapy water.

I was pleasantly surprised with the overall power of this machine.

I was considering purchasing the larger more expensive popcorn machine for my family room (to go along with every other gadget I own,) but decided to try this machine. To my amazement, it actually put out quite a bit of popcorn.

I use popcorn packets from Snappy Popcorn. Included is the oil, salt, and kernels; just snip the top and pour.

I even used this machine at a church carnival and it didn't falter even after continuous use for hours!!

The only "flaw" I can say is that it needs to be taller. I burnt my hand on the kettle getting popcorn from the back of the machine, HOWEVER, after the first time, I learned to be more careful!! I purchased a bigger scooper.

In the end, unless you plan to go into the popcorn business, this machine is perfect for home use.

Be Blessed.

My wife and I recieved one of these as a gift. We are using it in our home theater. It works great and makes excellent popcorn using a salt and butter/oil mix similar to what the theaters use. There are a few minor drawbacks to this machine. One is that it makes a small amount of popcorn at a time. So, if you have a large group you will have to make several batches. That is not a big deal because it is fun for people to watch it work and will keep them entertained while you work. The other problem I have with it is the motor that stirs the popcorn is fairly loud. You wouldn't want to have it running during movies. The machine is easy to clean and looks nice when not in use.

I've had my kettle popper for about 6 months now and Love it. It makes great popcorn and sits right on our end table. The kettle is easy to remove for cleaning. For the price of this popper, you can't go wrong.

I bought this item at a Goodwill. The former owner maybe used it once or twice and donated it or returned it to the store. Maybe they didn't read the instructions or couldn't figure out that the dumping handle needs to be attached to the pot counterclockwise. The handle was off and laying in the bottom. Whatever the reason, I got a great deal. However, there are very few perfect products in the world, and this popcorn maker has some flaws that can be improved by the owner.

First, the popcorn drops to the bottom and is hard to scoop out and clean. Line it with aluminum foil and maybe even add a rectangular container to catch most of the kernals.

Second, it can create too many old maids. This problem has several solutions that can be deployed. Make sure that the pot is preheated by at least 5 minutes, maybe longer, before putting the oil and corn in. Maybe use a bit more oil than recommended and allowed to heat slightly. Make sure that you use fresh, good quality corn. The lids are light weight and of a lower quality stainless than the pot bottom and thus magnetic. Place two magnets on the the lids to prevent excessive premature lift.

Third, it is somewhat difficult to clean. Always dismantle and then wipe down the sides first with white vinegar and then clean with water. The pot can be cleaned spotlessly by rinsing in hot tap water first and then cleaning out any popped corn under the stirring mechanism by a round wooden toothpick. There is a product made by Zep to clean BBQ grills and microwaves that I bought at the local big box lumberyard. It's a degreasing foam. Other bio-degradable spray degreasers are available elsewhere. Apply, let soak and then lightly scrub and rinse. Then proceed with soapy water as instructed.
