    Popcorn All Over the Kitchen AND It MELTS
    4/13/2016

    Customer review by Patricia

    Read the instructions when you get this popcorn popper. I was glad to get it so I could stop popping corn in a pot on the stove. After 3 uses, I'm packing it up and I'm waiting for a taxi right now as I type this to return it. First, you get hot unpopped corn spewing out from this thing. I don't care how close you put your bowl, it's all over the place. Then the top of it melts and once you remove the butter melter thing you better put it back fast or it's not going to fit back on. If you don't believe me, fine. Read the manual. It actually SAYS that it's made from some *expensie* material that melts so you have to handle with care. Nope. Not me. I can't even get the top back on right. So glad I didn't toss the box it came in or the receipt. I'd rather go back to popping in a pot than use this thing. It's cheap for a reason.

    I bought this in Red at the store. Directions say to fill the included measuring cup to the top. I did that. I plugged it in (there is no on/off switch) and the hot air began moving the kernels around. Approximately 30 kernels came out into the bowl before any popcorn came out. I tried it again, this time only filling the measuring cup half way. Same thing, about 20 kernels came out into the bowl before any popcorn did. When it stopped, I put the leftover kernels from the bowl back into the popper. All that came out were the kernels. I don't think the well in this unit is deep enough. The forced heated air pushes out way too many kernels without popping them first. I'm going to take this back to the store and return it and try a different one.

    The obvious problem with this product is that the well is either too shallow or the air blowing mechanism is too powerful. So when the popcorn is dispensed, it flies everywhere regardless of the bowl's size. Furthermore, you lose about 1/3rd of whatever you're popping on average. This was clearly designed for the cheaper and heavier popcorn kernels, which as we all know are not the fluffiest of popcorns. On the plus side, the popcorn that was dispensed was delightfully crunchy and properly heated. Not a single burnt popcorn piece in the bunch. This is primarily due to the air flinging the kernels around so much so they do not get burnt. In the end, the end doesn't justify the means. I would suggest looking for a different hot air popper. I returned this and plan on shoveling out another 5-10 bucks for a popper that doesn't fling the popcorn out at high speeds or wastes 1/3-1/2 the batch.

    I have owned this popper since June of 2015. It's true that several kernels are ejected before popcorn starts popping. What my children and I have been doing is propping the machine back a little with a dish towel. You do, however have to be ready to remove the towel once the popping begins. Otherwise the top will be knocked over with the popcorn as it all begins popping at once. It would be nice if the manufacturer could fix it so that propping is not necessary. I have not yet tried other models and/or brands to know whether this is a common problem with other machines out there. I do however LOVE the taste of air popped popcorn!

    I was excited until the popcorn was all over my kitchen. It is very easy to use, but messy. I did not like the taste of the popcorn, no flavor and very bland. Back to my pots!

    How could a manufacturer sell something like this? I first noted about 20 unpopped kernels ended up in the bowl before any popcorn popped. Then it was more like fireworks gone bad. Popcorn and kernels came out, some kernels popping in the bowl. The popper was about 6" from the edge of the counter and plenty of unpopped and popped kernels ended up on the floor as well. The popped ones ended up out of the bowl because of the hot kernels popping in the bowl. What was produced was tasty. If I didn't care about waste and was using this outside, it would be worth keeping just for the show. Being a Christmas gift, we probably won't be able to return it so it will get donated, almost new.

    This popper works well. You have to be ready when it's popping because sometimes it comes out so fast it comes out of the bowl. Pops majority of the kernels, much higher percentage than a bag of microwave popcorn

    We tried the popper twice but will be returning it. After following all manufacturer's instructions, the popper only popped half the kernels. The rest landed in the bowl unpopped and a few stayed in the popper. Popcorn tasted great but it's too wasteful.

    It feels so good to eat popcorn that has no transfats and is so delicious. Everyone told me that a hot air popper would make the popcorn taste like Styrofoam, but it tastes better than any microwave popcorn that I've ever had. I love it.

    I gave it two chances and have decided to return it. It spews popcorn and hot kernels everywhere and I've tried using a very large/deep mixing bowl without improvement. At least a third of the kernels are spit out unpopped and wasted but a few decide to pop after hitting the bowl and go flying everywhere. There is no on/off button, it's very loud and the instructions warn to be careful while handling the clear plastic top when dumping the rest of the unpopped kernels because it will be hot and soft and could lose it's shape causing it to not cradle on the base properly. Just too much noise, hassle, mess and waste for me.
