    my first real kettle popper

    Posted

    This little popcorn machine is very cute and works pretty good. The few times I have used it I have come to the conclusion that it is good for 1 or 2 people per batch. I have only tried popping the amount of corn with the supplied measuring cup (1/4 cup) and it takes about 2 batches to make enough for a large bowl or a small sized 1.5oz bag. Before this popper I used a Whirlypop on the stove and because of the larger size, I am able to pop more per batch with the Whirlypop than I can with this popper and in less time. The plus side is that you can pop multiple batches ahead of time so you fill up the glass case and serve/scoop as needed, which I couldn't do with the Whirlypop. Also it has a nice little storage compartment to store popping supplies, although its also a little small. Overall I would definitely recommend going for a larger popper, at least 6oz kettle because you can always pop less per batch, but overloading is not recommended. The larger popper will stand at height easier to work with due to being taller, it will pop more corn per batch, and the storage will be larger for some of the taller items and will be easier to clean due to not being so confined. I am going to attempt to bring this popper to a friends for a small party and see how it does keeping up to demand. Now if you want true movie popcorn, you will need to use coconut oil, Flavacol or Paragon seasoning salt, which you put in the kettle with the oil, because salt wont stick to popped corn and you cant salt all of it. you only need about 1 tsp. of seasoning salt for this popper. Finally O'Dells Super Kist II butter flavor topping which is what theaters use. Just add the butter topping to a clear or yellow plastic mustard squeeze bottle and heat it up in a baby bottle warmer and you will have delicious warm buttery popcorn exactly like the theaters. Don't forget to use laminated popcorn bags to make it authentic and less bowls to clean

    Great for a party

    The unit is pretty easy to assemble if you follow the directions closly. I was surprised at the overall quality of the machine. The base is all metal, with nice durable wheels. The glass case above is nicely built, and comes mostly assembled. The one thing I like is, the upper and lower unit are not fastened together, so transport in my car to a family party is very easy. I found that using just a little more oil than called for, and adding popcorn salt to the mix gets good results. The one thing that I am going to try to fix, are the amount of unpoped seeds that are thrown out. I am going to find two tiny magnets, and put them on the two hinged metal lids. The small amount of added weight just might work to hold in more seeds to pop. I will see about that. Overall, I really do like this popper.

    My wife got this for me for christmas, and although it cooks popcorn, everything else that goes with the experience is a pain in the butt. Cleaning it is tedious and takes a long time because the way the machine is built makes getting into corners extremely difficult. 10 minutes before every use is incredibly unnecessary. The capacity of the popper is very small as well. If you try two scoops at once, you will send unpopped kernels all over the place. All in all, from the way the kettle sticks when you try to remove, or the fact that the light is only on when it is plugged in and running, i cannot recommend this. If you are expecting top op in a dark room, forget it. When you hit the switch to stop popping, all lights go out. Everything about it frustrates me.

    What Fun!

    What fun this popcorn maker is! When we are expecting guests, we pop up a batch of popcorn and love seeing our guests' reactions. Not only do they receive a blast of mouth-watering popcorn aroma, but their eyes light up when they see the maker for the first time. Novelty appeal aside, this maker produces great tasting popcorn. It's very easy to use and easy to keep clean. Our family uses this at least once a week for just ourselves and always when we have guests.

    I purchased this to use with our outdoor theater setup. It makes popcorn well, and can hold a decent amount. I was a little surprised that it wasn't bigger based on the description, but it works well. You have to be careful when moving it across rough terrain, as the popcorn maker top section does not get secured to the bottom cart, it just sits on a lip. My wife dumped ours off the stand the first time she moved it across our yard....

    Didn't even open it

    I didn't even open this popcorn maker when I received it. Before buying it online, I had contacted BB support to confirm the popper total height. They confirmed the 59" mentioned on the website so I ordered it. The reason I asked was that other sites had it listed at 52", but the one at the BB website looked like a newer model. When I received it, the box stated it was only 52" tall so I returned this. At the point of writing this review the website is still inaccurate about this products height.

    Chewy popcorn.

    I thought this would be great to replace another smaller nostalgia popcorn machine that had the plastic door broken, well this ended up being a worse decision. This making was fairly easy to out together but the motor stopped working after we used it for three times. Popcorn was not crunchy at all. Very disappointed. Stick to microwaveable popcorn. Way crunchier and tastier. This broken machine is now on a corner of my dining room (just for looks). I wish it would've worked. :-(

    It's okay but going back.

    Like my title says, it's just okay but it's going back. It noisy, it's a little slow, it jams and when it does pop the crenels the last of them are burnt. It's not bad looking but it's a toy. I just expected a little more but you get what you pay for. I can see it now just gathering dust so before that happens I'll just take it back and continue using my air popper. It's faster and more efficient.
