I really had high hopes for this due to the reviews. I wish I can return it but I guess it's not possible since I used it already.
My kids love popcorn and we probably make popcorn 2-3 times a week. Previous to purchasing this I used a glass mixing bowl put organic corn kernels and cover with a lid that didn't fit so I had to tape the sides every time in order to keep the lid on when the popcorn
pops. It was a pain to do that. I was so happy to find this item with promising reviews.
However first time use, the popcorn burned so bad even though I followed the instructions. The burn left an ugly brownish stain on the bowl and lid.
I decided I should try again with less corn and less time(2.5min) again, again slightly burnt popcorn.
Thought I should try twice more before leaving a review but both failed. Bowl itself when it came out the box felt quite heavy and sturdy but
the edges were so rough and there was a big dent on the foot of the bowl. First impression wasn't so good either.
Also, I don't like how the lid becomes so flexible right out of the microwave, just makes me wonder if the plastic would be leaching anything.
We're back to using the glass mixing bowl. At least with the glass I don't have to worry about chemicals.
