    We bought this to replace our air popper, which made a horrible mess and left numerous kernels unpopped. That was one of the first things we noticed about this machine; very few kernels go unpopped. Also, it’s not messy like then air popper; everything is contained in the bowl. It might be a little heavy for some to flip over, and we found that the popcorn was a little oily if you followed the oil instructions given, so we scaled back a little. It’s a little difficult to clean throughly because you cannot submerge the base, and the plastic bowl/lid gets greasy, which is why I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5. However, we have used it often since purchasing, and I would buy it again.

    My family and I came in to Best Buy to buy some Ethernet cables, and as we were heading to the checkout, we saw this great popcorn maker near the front. It was a wonderful purchase! It air pops the corn with no oil, so the popcorn we eat so more healthy for us, and I don't feel as guilty serving to my family. The top flips over and becomes a great serving bowl, so I don't have another dish to wash!! It's easy to use, and a breeze to clean! It Would make a great gift for a housewarming, college dorm, or just a "happy Tuesday".

    I wasn't 100% sure about this popper, but after getting it home, I have to say it is a winner!! After some experimentation, the best oil to use is 100% coconut oil. The popcorn just tastes better with the coconut oil. To those that complained about soggy popcorn, you have to leave the black cap off while you are popping, and then put it on right before you flip the unit over. If you don't want microwave popcorn, this is the unit to get.

    We haven't quite mastered our recipe, but this thing does work quite well for popping. We used the wrong type of oil the first time, and everything was burnt. Once we purchased coconut oil, things have been much smoother. Comes with measuring cups for oil and kernels, which is handy. The thing can accommodate more popcorn than the two of us can eat, so we usually reduce the recipe. Works pretty quickly, no large amounts of unpopped kernels. Overall, a great popcorn maker.

    I bought this month's ago and I am very pleased with this popcorn maker. I always fill it to the max and at the end there is only a few unopened kernels. Someone mentioned it makes soggy popcorn because they didn't take the base off while making the popcorn. You need to take it off so it can ventilate then put it back on before you flip it and use it as a bowl. Use coconut oil and you will have delicious fluffy popcorn. It is very easy to clean too.

    How about that, a product that does exactly what it is supposed to do and does an outstanding job of it! Awesome machine that makes your popcorn in about five minutes and leaves you searching for old maids, it pops 99% of the kernels minimum! The only thing I need to do now is find a better corn than Orville's and a better oil than "Kernel Season's !" Fantastic machine and a good price!

    Now I can go to Central Market and Whole Foods to buy super fancy popcorn kernels! All I can say is that I'm never going back to bagged popcorn and I'm hooked on the quality popcorn this amazing device prepares. Not only does the cover double as a bowl, there is a bowl cover so you can add butter, salt, etc. and shake it up with no mess. Nostalgia Electrics for the win!

    Works great and no burnt popcorn. Easy to clean and use. Love the idea that the cover is the bowl. Very few unpopped kernels. Plus it comes with a oil spoon and a kernel scoop. Easy directions for every 1 portion of oil 1 scoop of kernels. A must buy and healthy way for eating pop corn and add your own real butter and not that junk microwave unhealthily popcorn.
