Best popcorn ever!
I was thinking of getting the stir-type stove top poppers, but having read all the positive reviews on the Presto popper, I decided to go ahead and order one. WOW! This is the best popcorn you will ever have and my family LOVES it. It's super easy to use, super easy to clean, and the price is right. There's nothing not to love about this product. It pops large and fluffy, with virtually no kernels left unpopped. So, if you love your "old maids," you will be disappointed, lol. Now, for those who have reported that the popper left several unpopped kernels, let me point out that you need to make sure you use FRESH popcorn, not stuff that's been sitting around for 10 months. We used the Orville Reddenbacher popcorn, but I'm sure any brand will do fine. Buy it -- you won't regret it!

This is one crazy popper - not in a good way
I bought this because it was recommended on a website - the article was reviewing and recommending various popcorn poppers. I picked this one because it was described as one of the best. And the product page for this item said "virtually no unpopped kernels." That's not the case. I followed all the instructions, of which there are almost none needed, and there are about 3 steps, yeah? Super simple. But after I put in the kernels, and placed the hood on top, and then placed the measuring cup on the hood, and plugged in the popper.... It started heating up just fine, but the first items to exit the popper were UNPOPPED KERNELS!!! :( They flew out past the big bowl I was using, they flew out the back of the machine, they flew out all over the place! Then there were some popped kernels finally, enough for me and my guest to enjoy during our movie, but this machine still left quite a few kernels unpopped inside - I stood there waiting 2 minutes after the last popped one, then gave up on the remaining kernels. This thing is a huge disappointment.

Back to popping our own popcorn

We had the Orville Redenbacher fountain popcorn popper but it was too difficult for me to handle while using a walker. We tried microwave popcorn for a while but wanted our fresh popcorn bac. I saw this one had really good ratings so I bought it and we really like the volume it pops and hot-air popcorn is a great snack so we are both very happy with the purchase.

don't skimp, this is the one

Have had about 6 bowls from this popper from Presto. It has the right heat and power to pop the kernels nice and fluffy. Had a cheaper brand for about 2 months and threw it out. Should have known better, our previous Presto lasted for years. If you love your popcorn, pay the few extra dollars for this one.

Great Popper

I had purchased a West Bend Stir Crazy it would burn the popcorn every time. Took it back and purchased this Hot Air Popper. It works great and doesn't scorch the corn. You don't use any popping oil so if you want to add any flavoring you will have to add popcorn salt/flavor after it is popped.

Good popper!

I like the visual calmness of plain white appliances with little or no branding. We donated our old Presto air popper (from the early 1990's) because it was taxi-cab yellow and an eye sore. It rankled me every day I had to look at it. (It also had a large black and red logo of some sort splashed across the front of it ). It was just too jarring. Many of our appliances are on a kitchen bookcase displayed in the open as we do not have any other place to store items. Our kitchen is small... All are white, and a few chrome -- that is a big deal to me! (Weird maybe? I also remove many products from their original containers and put into generic containers... not so much visual clutter. Breathe in... Calm...) So, with that being said, the good news: the Orville Redenbacher logo is a peel-off sticker. Very good! I have to admit to you that the color was the whole reason I purchased this model, and paid more for it than other choices we could have made. We have used it 4 times so far - it works great, and does what it is supposed to do. I THINK it is even quieter than our last popper. (They are loud!) The chute is actually a Teflon like material. The only thing I did not like was the butter hopper looked like it had been used and had a coating of grease. Actually, it is just the way it is made -- it has a texture and small bubbles that may or may not be intentional in the manufacturing of it. But that is really a small detail that does not matter over all. Also, the cord is much shorter than we used to have -- luckily the outlet is close and all is well! Like other reviewers have noted: it is true that you need very fresh popcorn or high quality popcorn to get all the kernels popped. We purchased the Orville Redenbacher brand and had only a few un-popped kernels. We went all out for the maiden voyage of our new purchase! Then for our next batch, we used our months-old store brand pop corn just to experiment and almost half of it was un-popped. Now I am using our FoodSaver ( oh yes, its white!!) to vacuum seal the pop corn in a mason jar between uses -- hoping that will help keep it fresher as popcorn is a once-a-week treat for us. So far, it has been a good purchase and we recommend it.

Fun to use

I love this popcorn popper. The one I had for 30 years gave out on me, so I bought this as a replacement. It lives up to its promises. It pops the corn fast and only 2-3 kernals are left unpopped. The only thing I would warn parents about is that it really does get hot, so keep your younger children away from it so they do not get burned.

Amazing popcorn popper

I bought a different popper before this one and the popcorn flew all over the room! This popper works excellent and pops almost every single kernel. This is so easy to use and works perfect!

Bought 2 hot air poppers for under 20 dollars, after dropping and breaking my previous air popper that had been used at least once weekly for years, and neither one worked (half the seeds did not pop and and the ones that did would pop out of the bowl onto the floor). So i ordered this one and it did a good job. Wish they stocked in the store, it has to be ordered and I picked it up at the store.

Same as regular Presto

This hot air popper is the same as Presto only more expensive. I switched because the interior popping chamber has deteriorated on two previous Presto poppers with no help from the manufacturer. So now I have paid more for the same poor quality popper.

1. No. I didn't find that this was a problem though. Microwave popcorn directions say to listen for the popping to stop. With this you can watch for the last kernel to pop.
by thnola
2. No on/off switch.
by Thom93
3. No, but I don't mind as it does a very good job
by pickist
4. No on/off switch. But since it doesn't sit on the counter plugged in all the time, the switch is not missed. This popper is really only meant to pop 1/2 cup kernels at a time, and that makes a large bowl. You'd need to pause between batches anyway.
by Matt354
5. No it doesn't have an on/off switch just plug and unplug. We have done several batches back to back though when we made caramel popcorn balls. It doesn't have time to cool enough to slow the popping process down...we did unplug it for a second, but had our next amount of kernels ready to toss in when that batch was done. Plug back in, pop the next batch and enjoy!
by judetheprude7
6. No it doesn't. You have to pull the cord out of the wall while it is still on. This is kind of scary and I would prefer an off/on switch.
by Judesters
7. It does not. This is the ONLY fault this popper has. Still worth it to me.
by suzzana
8. No, it doesn't. All of the poppers I looked at did not, either. Otherwise this one does a good job.
by Gma16
9. It has no switch, You don't need one. Plug it in, the hot air comes on instantly. Use a metal bowl because the popcorn and old maids come out hot. I use a small splatter screen I bought from Walmart to direct the popcorn into the metal bowl better. If you plan to use oil, butter, or any other flavoring it's a bit much trying to pour it over the popped corn.

1. The popper will emit a sound. This is normal and is the fan running.
by Presto Customer Service
2. It is not very loud but the motor does make some noise. Not overbearing
