    Right up front, the ONLY thing I do not like about the Nostalgia brand hot air popcorn maker is the color! I sincerely doubt that many people have appliances in 1950's red. That now totally aside, the mechanics of the machine are really excellent! It does take close to the suggested two minutes to heat to the proper temperature, but by then, you'd BETTER have your popped corn container ready and in position, because it pops the measured amount of corn really FAST!!! No kidding there!! We are major popped corn consumers here, and I always premeasure three containers of corn, with the built in measure holding the last of the batches. That way when the corn's popped, just open the hatch and pour in batch two or three as desired. I prefer paper grocery store bags to catch the full load of corn and to make it easier to add "butter" either the real McCoy or "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" in a spray bottle. Zero calories they say! Lots of very good taste, even moreso if you add a couple of tablespoons of butter to the mix! Three measures of popcorn makes a LOT of popped corn! The on / off switch on the side is another significant advantage to this popper and MUCH easier than fussing with the plug as most other models seem to have. That's about it, Great popper great price!!!!

    I pop popcorn the "old fashioned" way with oil and kernels in a pot with a lid, so I got this thinking it would be faster. Well, it's definitely faster but the popcorn is kinda chewy (we've done several batches and we use high quality kernels; must be an air popper thing). The previous review said it was quiet but I don't agree. I mean, it's not an airplane landing or anything but it is tough to hear over it. On the plus side, it takes no time to actually pop the full batch, so you put up with it for long. All in all, it works the way it's supposed to but the actual popcorn just isn't as crispy or as good as oil popped. If you're used to air popping, then I'm sure it's fine. I gave it a 4 bc the functionality is there, I just don't like the final product.

    So this does exactly what it says. It pops it and it is fluffy and probably the healthiest way to eat it. It is a bit chewy. The only reason we aren't using it much is because the popcorn is so dry that no seasoning will stick to the popcorn so there is no way to get any other flavor on it. You can buy a popcorn spray that is basically butter in a can to make it stick, but that defeats the purpose of air popping the popcorn. Again, it does exactly what it says it does. Just not as tasty as cooking it on the oven with olive oil.

    Good for occasional use

    This is a well priced "starter" unit for occasional use. Because of its size, you pretty much have to stick to 1/2 cup of kernels. If you go smaller the throat is so small when the kernels pop they come flying out unpopped. Until I learned this I wasted more than I actually used. Also, its good for one batch at a time. The instructions say to let it cool down 15 minutes between batches. It works just fine, but not made for a lot of use.

    Bargain basement price for a top.quality Air Popper. Sleek lines on a vibrant red case that fairly begs to make a bowl to share. Looks very good on the counter and clean up is a breeze. The popcorn pops quickly with good flavor and because it pops so fast, it doesn't dry the corn or make it tough. All in all, good quality at a great price.

    The unit works great. The issue is with the taste. Because I am trying to avoid extra calories I don't use any butter after popping. Without the butter the salt does not stick and you have tasteless popcorn. No fault of the popper. It does its job well.

    I compared different models and checked a lot of reviews, and this product has performed admirably. No burnt kernals; follow directions and preheat for blackjewel popcorn.
