Do not buy - It'll cost a fortune in popcorn Posted by: from: sacramento, ca on Ever since purchasing one of these Retro Popcorn Makers, we have been struggling to make it work efficiently. For every measuring cup full of seeds we put in (6T), we consistently get about 2/3 seeds back out - only about 1.5c popped popcorn for every full measuring cup. I've done some experiments using different popcorn types, warm up times, etc... measured with supplied cup, measured out the tablespoons, and also by weight and all trials yielded the same result - approximately 66% of the kernels came out un-popped. I've never had this much trouble with my $9 generic popper from walmart. The only way I can seem to get it to work without wasting a lot of seeds and money is to do 5-10 seeds at a time so I can throw them back in as they fly out unpopped.

It worked great--for a while Posted by: from: Austell, GA on I purchased my popper in June 2011. It worked great at first, but as time progressed, it began shooting out more unpopped kernels than popped ones. In fact, when I finally decided to give up on it, it only popped about 20% of the kernels I put in. That is unacceptable!

Mine Works Posted by: from: Worth, IL on The bad reviews surprise me. Maybe this model works for some not others. However, mine works fine. In the beginning of popping some kernels shoot out from the popping motion. I put them back in if I'm around. I use the cheap popcorn and have no trouble.

Good product Posted by: from: Fayetteville, NC on kind of loud, but that is to be expected for an air popper. Does a good job popping the kernals, does leave some unpopped like all kinds of popcorn. Overall I am satisfied with the popper.

one of the worst designs I've ever seen Posted by: from: sac.ca. on I am not sure how this product made it to the market. It must have been tested, and with the way it operates, I cannot understand how it went into production. First, it does pop pop-corn with hot air. However, over 2/3 of the kernels are carried out "un-popped" with the ones that get popped. And, shot all over the place. I had a large bowl under the popper, and these kernels were bouncing and flying all over - the counter, floor etc. The ones I could recover, I put back in popper thinking a small amount would do better, and the same thing occurred....kernels everywhere, Finally finished off by doing stove popping. It will be returned

Popcorn maker Posted by: from: Chicago, Il on My wife wanted a popcorn maker and we decided to purchase this unit. It looks great on the kitchen counter. It works really well, but it takes some work cleaning the inside. Over all we are happy with the purchase
