Once we fixed that issue, though, the popper was fast, the popcorn is good, and there were very few unpopped kernels.
Like like some have said in their negative reviews, kernels may go flying all over the place if you're not careful. This situation is actually *very* avoidable. Please pay attention to the -size- of the kernels you purchase. Cheap, generic brands generally yield a cheap, generic kernel that is rather small and very light. These undersized kernels will ride around in the air designed to push the popped corn out of the chute and fly right out because they don't have enough heft to fall back down. Once the kernels pop, the heavier kernels have more surface volume and can then easily ride the air out of the chute.
Don't believe me? Try it for yourself. Grab a generic bag of kernels and a bag of more quality kernels and compare the two. You'll be able to see a difference in the size and uniformity between the two.
UPDATE: 7 months later, and it still works great. Plus, I've begun to overload it so I can get bigger batches of popcorn out of it.
I just brought popcorn to a movie night at the university yesterday and it was a big hit. I don't just put butter on, I use:
Macadamia nut oil
I also like to sprinkle on cumin, garlic powder, curry powder, and sometimes hot Indian pepper powder! Makes a great and healthy snack. Note that the oils are extra virgin and unheated, since the popper air pops the popcorn.
both begain smoking and "burnt up" the very first time I put Popcorn in them. No kidding!
So this time I got serious, forgetting the big box stores and their cheap products.
I took a chance on the Great Northern model, paid the shipping and ....Guess What? It works great, flawlessly.
The popcorn is better than any I have ever tasted.
Also, I would like to share my experience with Popcorn Brands.
(A) Orville Redenbacher "gourmet" has a stale odor, right out of the jar.
(B) The "lower end" brands including Jolly Time and the "Great Value" brand from Walmart, both smell nice right out of the jar, and pop better.
I always heat up a little corn oil and add a little butter to it to pour on my popcorn. Then I salt it.
It's a great food!

Does a good job, without leaving many "old maids". Would give it 5 stars, but it doesn't have an on/off switch. You just plug it in or unplug it to turn it on and off.Published 26 days ago by Mike Ashcraft
It gets very hot immediately and a lot of unpopped kernels pop out of the thing before the rest pop. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Patricia Ann
The suction base didn't stay as well as I'd hoped. It wasn't very strong. Pretty typical air-popped popcorn maker. It didn't burn anything which was great. Read morePublished 1 month ago by thebgarrett

Works great! Use a big bowl under it, it can fling some popcorn pretty hard.Published 1 month ago by Cherry
I used this for about 4 months, and it short-circuited just now. Trash. My Presto popper lasted years, so I took it to the office to use there while this one was for home use. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Lobo
This thing is SO MUCH FUN. The kernels that come out are delicious and I can only think that is because the machine is so efficient. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Amelia
