What I like about it is that it is a solidly built stainless steel pot with a handle that never gets hot to the touch, and it could easily be used for other purposes, with or without the lid. The turning mechanism is much simpler than my old popper with a direct drive that needs no gears - so hopefully, there are fewer parts to break. The glass lid is solidly heavy and needs no additional effort to sit on top of the pot the entire time I am turning the handle with one hand, while waiting for it to finish popping. The stainless steel blades (both fixed and rotating blades) do not push the kernels around like my previous brand did, and they weren't designed to do that. It does move the popped kernels very well though, and 99% of the kernels pop well using my electric stove on the medium high (#4) heat setting, which is perfectly fine for me. I make a mixture of half coconut oil and half ghee butter in the popper and heat it before adding the popcorn kernels. I like the way the blades are attached to the glass lid and the turning mechanism is pain-free and easy to use with one hand throughout the entire 2 minutes process.
The blades are attached to the heavy glass lid, and yes, you will need to place this in the sink while it cools. I like the soft rubber stopper, although it is not fitted, it sits in the hole and is easily removable for adding butter or flavorings. I prefer to add ghee butter and sea salt once it is in the bowl rather than doing it in the pot, but it works very well for that purpose. I also like to shift/move the rubber stopper midway to allow more steam to come out so that I can have crisper popcorn. I don't make anything else in the popper (so far) other than popcorn, but it is nice to know I could roast coffee beans and/or nuts, not just popcorn. Those are the things I LOVE about it.
What would make this a 5-star rating instead of a 4-star is based upon my own personal experience and if you don't have issues with weak/painful hands or fingers this won't be an issue for you. In that case, buy it now! However, for seniors who do have arthritis, these are the cons that make it "almost perfect." This puppy is HEAVY stainless steel. I can't lift it with one hand, and barely manage to do so with two hands. It would be much easier if there had been a small "lift" handle opposite the long stainless steel handle to facilitate the turning process of pouring the finished popcorn into the bowl. Many heavy/large size pots feature such things (especially large cast iron skillets/pots) and it is extremely helpful for someone with smaller hands and less strength. I almost returned this simply because it is painful for me to lift it even with two hands, and it's nigh near impossible for me to control when it is time to pour the popcorn into a large bowl. Consequently, there's always a few pieces that fall outside the popcorn bowl. Adding an additional "lifting" handle would make this so much easier for me, and others, who have arthritis and painful fingers and/or wrist joints.
If the Zippy Pop engineers ever read this, please consider adding this design feature. It is also difficult to store this due to the long handle, so I leave it on top of my stove on the back burner. Since we don't have to shake it, the handle is provided in order to facilitate turning the pot over so that the contents can be poured into a bowl. This would be much easier with 2 molded or built-in handles, instead of one long handle. It would also be easier to find storage for it in the cupboard. Other than those 2 issues, I highly recommend this excellent quality and stainless steel stove-top Popcorn Maker. Enjoy!!
I do wish that the lid fit a bit more firmly. However, I've noticed that pressing down slightly while turning the knob prevents any slipping of the lid.
My first attempt at making Kettle Corn with this popper wasn't so great because the paddles of the stirring mechanism aren't as close to the bottom of the pan as the previous popper. However, it was easy to adjust how I made Kettle Corn and use the silicone stopper that's in the lid. I just wait until the kernels start to pop, quickly add the granulated sugar through the convenient opening, replace the silicone stopper, swish the pot around a few times and continue stirring as usual. It certainly makes Kettle Corn to my satisfaction.
Clean up is easy as all of it can go in the dishwasher although I usually just wash it in the sink.
