Product Description

The Nostalgia OFP501 Vintage Collection 12-cup Hot Air Popcorn Maker is a replica of the old-fashioned, street-corner popcorn stands of the early 1900s and is a table-top sized party pleaser. In just minutes, family and friends can enjoy the taste of freshly popped popcorn! Its electric popping system uses hot air instead of oil, producing a light and healthy snack. This popcorn maker comes with a measuring cap that assures the proper amount of kernels are used in each batch. Enjoy the fresh taste of hot popcorn in minutes!

Amazon.com

A plastic replica of the familiar, old-fashioned, street-corner popcorn stand, this delightful tabletop-size electric popper not only pops corn but also props up the spirits of everyone in sight--or within aroma range. Because it employs hot air instead of oil, the popper produces a healthful, low-fat snack. With a capacity of 3-1/2 ounces of kernels, the popper pops enough corn in its chamber to please a family, several dorm roommates, or an office crowd--and sends it cascading through a chute into a waiting bowl. A measuring cap ensures the proper amount of kernels is poured into the top before the unit is turned on. After one batch is made, the popper must cool for 15 minutes before another is begun. The popper measures 16-3/4 inches high, 7-1/4 inches wide, and 9-1/2 inches deep and carries a 90-day warranty against defects. --Fred Brack

The makers of this popcorn maker should be banned from creating any additional products. It is apparent that they did not give much thought to the design other than trying to make it look like an old fashioned popcorn cart. The first problem that I encountered was the fact that the wheels of the cart were put on the wrong side. They are located on the same side that the popcorn comes out. Because of this, you cannot put a container underneath to catch the popcorn unless it is small enough to fit between the wheels. But a container that is small enough to fit between the wheels won't be large enough to catch all of the popcorn. As a result, a large amount of popcorn ends up on the countertop and on the floor. It's astonishing that anyone would sell a product which such an obvious design flaw.

The next, and most annoying, problem is the one that another reviewer mentioned. When it is popping the corn, most of the kernels are thrown out before they pop. Some end up in the container and some end up on the floor. Making popcorn is a multiple step process. First, I will pop a batch. Then I separate the popped kernels from the unpopped ones. I then put the unpopped kernels back into the popcorn maker and try to pop them again. I usually have to repeat this 5 or 6 times before most of the kernels are popped.

This popcorn maker may look like it's fun to use, but don't fall for it. It is by far the worst popcorn maker that I have ever used. Don't even think about wasting money on it.

I have been looking for a good popcorn maker for some time, and when I saw this one, my eyes widened. It looked nice and it was only $30 so I did not think twice about getting it. However, after using it according to the instructions, I was disappointed for several reasons.

When popping, the kernels flew everywhere, despite using a large bowl. Even though I measured 100 grams of popcorn kernels, as recommended in the manual, more than 50% of the kernels remained unpopped and wasted when the batch was made.

The machine looks nice, but it is an absolute piece of junk.

On a scale of 1 to 5 stars, this item deserves a -10. Yes, it's that bad. I bought this item for my sister for Christmas as a way to steer my nieces from that buttery microwaveable mess they get in the box to a more healthier regimen. The only healthy thing about this popcorn maker was the fact that you could eat the kernels raw because they didn't pop! I poured in the amount as I was instructed and as my nieces and I waited excitedly to hear the poping sound, nothing happend. The machine started fine and the kernels were turning, then one kernel popped. After that one popcorn, the machine stopped. After 20 minutes it turned itself on again and popped another. After another 20 minutes the fan turned on again and the rest of the kernels burned (without popping). Needless to say, this burncorn maker was definetly a waste of time and effort. I would have more success popping the kernels outside in the sun during Boston's winter season.

This is by far one of the worst products I ever purchased. Only about one-quarter of the kernels pop and when they do pop its usually as they are leaving the maker and end up all over the floor. You have to use two bowls - one to catch all the unpopped kernels and a much smaller bowl to catch the popcorn.

This is a really neat looking popper and when I got it out of the box I was very excited with the thought of all that wonderful popcorn. What a MAJOR disappointment. First of all, after carefully following the instructions, this popper began shooting out VERY HOT unpopped kernels. It did not matter how large a bowl I used or at what angle the bowl was placed (the cute wheels get in the way), unpopped, and later in the cycle, popped corn shot out all over the place. The unpopped corn shot out with such velocity that they bounced off of the bowl and into my face, on the floor, on the counter, everywhere!!! I used this popper 5 times and in every case less that half of the kernels were popped (most exited at high velocity and with a few popping outside of the machine!). Some of the hot kernels landed on the floor and damaged my floor covering leaving burnt marks! I returned the popper for a refund.

I recommend that you not waste your time or money on this popper...

We were really disappointed with this and decided to return it. It's large, but doesn't make that much popcorn, the corn (both popped and unpopped) jumps out of the machine all over the place, and the construction is really flimsy. The other issue is that it's not easy to clean, and even when you can get your hand and a sponge into it, there's only so much you can do without being able to submerge. Buy another popper.

The Movietime Popcorn Maker is larger than need be, making storage a problem for those with limited space. This is a particular problem with this item because after a few uses, it's probably going to stay in storage until your next yard sale. Whatever the freshness or brand of popcorn you use, it has a high rate of unpopped kernels. The design of the unit makes it impossible to catch many the popped and unpopped kernels that spew forth -- some as far as 5 feet from the machine. The height of the ejection shoot prevents the placement of a bowl deep enough to contain the popcorn without flying about and the ersatz wheels prevent all but the tiniest bowls from getting close enough to the unit. If you get the popper, save the many unpopped kernels. Odds are there's nothing wrong with them and many will pop on subsequent attempts.
