Now every time I take it out of the pantry to use, I spend 10 minutes cleaning the rust off all of the inside so that my family doesn't eat iron granules....
Assembly was extremely fast and easy. No tools required. The only thing that caused me a slight problem.. and I still don't know why, was lining up the kettle with the two holders, and turning pin. For some reason I struggled with this for several minutes before getting it put in place. Now, I have read some reviews where some people mention the doors not aligning properly with the top, or sealing correctly. Well, its not suppose to. Its made to have a gap for ventilation. My bottom flip drawer opens and closes properly, it does not pop out of place as some have mentioned. As far as cleaning? I have not removed the kettle, but did not find it a nightmare to wipe completely clean. Not sure why some are mentioning having to use a screwdriver to get the lid off, etc. etc.. to clean properly. Keep in mind,, you are talking about oils and the like. You are not suppose to clean with water and soap. This is a no, no. You can easily lift the lid on one end.. clean out that side, then lift the lid on the other end, and clean that side as well. Its not recommended or necessary to take out the popper to soak or wash out with soap and water. My experience is that cleaning is not as bad as some people make it out to be.
Performance? Exrtemely quick. Once you turn the machine on and put the oil in, it is within 2 minutes that the oil is melted and hot enough for popping. Another 3 minutes or so, and you should have 1 cup of kernels popped and ready to eat. In an 8 ounce machine, 1 cup of kernels is more than enough for a family of 4. We have also had a few parties where the machine popped continuously for about 2 hours. Not a glitch, or a problem in producing a lot of popcorn. Just recently my son used it for a fall festival at school. He actually was making popcorn continuously for 3 hours. No problem. Now, keep in mind. If you are buying this machine to use mostly in a commercial setting where you are making tons of popcorn for a lot of people? you might want to go with a bigger kettle and holding bin. Could this machine handle it? Sure, but an 8 oz kettle is only going to accommodate 6-7 bags a batch. You would be popping non stop. However, is ideal for a larger type family? Excellent. Now, in the fairly short time owning the machine, we have used it more than the average family would. Not to mention a few events we brought the machine to for numerous people. It performed flawlessly. For a family setting, or home theater, I would have to say this machine is more than Ideal.
THE CONS: Truly, as of today as I write this, there really are none. My goal is to update this review over time to see if any problems occur. However, some advice to keep in mind. THIS MACHINE... or ANY MACHINE is not going to make movie style type popcorn simply by putting in the oil and kernels. This solely depends on the INGREDIENTS you USE in the machine. The MAIN ingredients to use with this popper to achieve this is COCONUT OIL, and FLAVACOL seasoning. I do not buy the pre made packs. I find it way too expensive, and found buying a 9 pound jug of coconut oil (Snappy popping coconut oil $19.99) and a quart of (Flavacol seasoning $3.99 ) and 12 pound bag of Kernels $14.99. You are looking at about .25 cents a batch. Trial and error with your brand of kernels can yield different result. When buying bulk with kernels be sure to pour them in containers to keep them fresh longer. Personally, the best ratio I have found for this machine is 1/3 cup of coconut oil, 1 cup of kernels, and a slight smidgen short of a teaspoon of flavacol ( for 8 oz kettle). Of course this is dependent on your personal taste. I don't like my popcorn too salty. The directions for the Roosevelt would recommend using a slightly smaller portion of kernels to the mix. However, I have found no problems with using this amount as other users who have recommended the same measurements. Of course I cheated and was given access to a small storage room in the local AMC theatre and went out and bought the same ingredients and products. I figure if it taste good there,, it should taste the same at home.. And, yes.. it does.
Now that I think about it, and before ending. I will say there is indeed one CON to this machine. If you order the machine without the cart (like I did), then decide to go ahead and purchase the cart... YOU CAN"T. They only sell the carts with the machine at the time of purchase You can not order a cart for this machine later on down the line. :( Bummer.
Cons: 1st machine ordered: Looked used, looked water stained inside top of machine (like water spots everywhere), scratched several places outside of machine, kettle scratched, doors to machine did not line up, bottom inside (where popcorn lands) looked water stained, the outside of steel looked faded or worn out. 2nd Machine: Same as above but also dented and doors looked more off than first machine (not lined up properly) Also found out may rust later on so maybe mine was already rusting. I did try to clean it, but stains remained.
Really Disappointed. I bought this machine after I thought I did a thorough review. I went online and looked at videos, different pricing and other people's reviews. So I thought I did my job right. Well, I didn't. When I received the product it looked like it had been used! The inside top of machine was water stained, the outside of machine was scratched and dirty looking, the "stainless steel" looked faded, the kettle was scratched and the inside bottom had water stains. I thought it was a mistake so I replaced it. This is the only good thing: I ordered from Amazon Prime so they were really easy to deal with! Well, the second one that came in was worse! It had all the scratches, water stains, but this one was also dented on the outside! So I contacted the company and asked if all their products were like this and they said no, that I must had gotten one that had an issue. However, I explained that I had TWO that came the same way. They were very fast and nice with their response,but not too helpful since all they told me was that I would have to deal with Amazon because they were the ones who sold it to me. So I returned the product. After reading more reviews, I found out that A LOT of people complained that after a couple of months the top rusted! Not just on amazon but other forums too. I guess mine was probably already starting to rust. Who wants rust in their pop corn? So I will save my money and buy a Gold Medal or Paragon. If your investing in a popcorn machine this big, that means you really use it. So why not spend the extra money and invest in one you won't need to replace because it's cheaply made? Save yourself the trouble.
This is the one I bought Great Northern Popcorn 6010 Roosevelt Top Antique Style Popcorn Popper Machine, 8-Ounce
When we first got it one of the plastic doors had a crack. It was replaced by seller for free.
In the move 5 years ago (horrible movers), they jostled it and one side separated. I was able to get it all back in again and is still working.
So, after 5 years on a transformer (always buy one that is higher wattage than the START UP wattage of your product) and many pops later, it still runs great.
I saw a complaint about the top after popping. If there is a lot of condensation it can cause issues with the top. Mine has a wide gap at the top to let steam out and I use real popping oil and 12lb bags of popcorn from Gold Medal (vs. The pre measured oil and popcorn packets), so that might help.
I am buying one for my son as part of his graduation gift (along with a Nutri Ninja, which we also Love!)
