    Cool idea, poor in execution.

    The idea behind this little machine is great, and I was super excited when I initially pulled it out of the box and set it up. I turned on the light, which lit up the "Popcorn" marquee and the inside of the unit, and thought "this is awesome!!1". The thing looked very authentic. There were several downsides during actual use, however. The kettle size is 2oz - compare this to a bag of microwave popcorn being 3.3oz. To achieve a similar yield, you have to pop two cycles in this machine. The metal lid over the kettle doesn't stay up on it's own when filling with oil and popcorn, which is more annoying the second run after the thing is super hot. When the kernels start popping, several unpopped ones are propelled out of the kettle in the process (because the kettle is so small), dropping the actual popped amount to about 1.5oz. Somehow, a few of them also flew out the vents in the back. The light is listed as a "warming" light, but is about 25 watts and way at the top of the machine, and is ineffective for warming any popcorn not immediately taken out. All the walls are plexiglass, which is more difficult to clean than regular glass and will haze up over time. There's no good way to get the extra popcorn and kernels out of the bottom, short of shaking the entire machine over the garbage can. To remove the kettle for cleaning, you have to unscrew the side lever that tips the kettle entirely each time you want to take the kettle out. Combined with the small size of the metal lid on the kettle which is not easily removed, cleaning is kind of a pain. This machine is an awesome idea, but after using it a few times, I ended up returning it to purchase a higher end machine with a larger kettle, heating element under the bottom deck to adequately keep the popcorn warm, and a removable bottom tray and glass walls to be more easily cleaned. This machine is a cool novelty item, but to get one where everything works without hassle, you'll have to drop a little more money.

    Definately worth the money

    Very nice piece for the money. After the warming process it takes about 3 minutes to completely pop a 1/4 cup of the kernels. I would prefer a bigger kettle but this one will definately satisfy my needs for now.

    I couldn't wait to get this home and use it! I admit I read the bad reviews on this before I bought it..but did it anyway..bad move. The first one I got lasted about 3 weeks then the popcorn holder stopped turning and the popcorn burned...okayyyy...plan B...I took it back to try another one to see if it was just the one I had...nope..same thing only this time it died within the first week!...they are nice to look at but they don't work well...really a waste of money..don't buy it.

    Don't bother

    This seemed like it would make a great family gift from my mother so we agreed to it. Unfortunately, function does NOT follow form in this case. Fully 1/3 to 1/2 of the kernels either do not pop or are thrown out of the popper with the popped kernels and it is difficult to get all of the popcorn out of the popper. What stays in the popper, burns in the popper. Lastly, the design of the internal popper bucket makes it nearly impossible to clean or function properly. Save your money and buy a LOT of microwave popcorn with what you save by NOT buying this device. Did I say how nice this thing looks?

    More Trouble Than It's Worth

    It's fun to watch the corn pop and imagine you have real movie theater popcorn. The machine is attractive. However, only about 2/3 of the kernels pop. The popper is awkward to remove and hard to clean. I honestly don't think I'm going to get a lot of life out of it.

    I just returned this popcorn maker because of how disappointed I was with it. Half of the popcorn kernels fly out without being popped. Then I was having difficulty with a popped kernel getting stuck under the turning arm and the machine would make terrible noises. With this happening, it wouldn't be long until the motor burned up.

    Tops in looks, short in batches

    I love my retro popcorn maker. It's fun and easy, looks great but puts out small batches. There is no way it puts out a gallon in a batch if you use the measuring spoon they provide. The popcorn cools down quickly too, not like theatre popcorn that stays warm. Other than that, I love it ~ Worth the money ~ Wish it came with a Scooper to Match :)
