Having tried several methods to pop corn, this by far and away meets all the criteria. There is no mess as there is no oil. All other hot air poppers have no way to contain the kernels before they pop, so you end up with a bunch of them in the bowl. Others also do not contain the popped corn, this one does the job. The kernel guard stops them being blown out before they pop, and the bowl design catches the corn before it is blown all over the counter. Then you just attach the cover and flip and you now have the popcorn in a bowl. Ingenious.

Piece of Junk
Presto Popcorn Poppers are all junk. This is the 2nd Presto popcorn popper I bought. This one is a great idea. The first time I used it, I thought it was pretty neat. Except small pieces would fly through the holes and go all over. The next time I used it, it went on for 2 seconds and never worked again. It over heats very fast. No off and on switch. I bought a Cuisinart one with an on and off switch. It's the best one that's an air popcorn popper that I can find.

awesome popper

This is an Awesome Popper! We had another popper that threw all the unpopped kernels all over the place - not with this one! I would say there may be 5-6 unpopped kernels with this popper and that is when you make enough to fill that whole dome. This popper is Fast! This popper is Easy! This popper doesn't make a mess! This popper makes more than enough for my husband and I in one popping. We are very happy with this product. I hope that it lasts a long time. We pop probably every other day. Yes we love popcorn.

Fun and useful

Awesome !! The kids love watching it working!

So far so good

I have only used it once, and it worked well. USE ONLY A 1/2 CUP OF POPCORN PER BATCH. since air popped popcorn really doesn't have any flavor, I suggest melting butter while it's popping and add it when it's done. And some salt too. The bowl is very well made and thick plastic. The clean up, since no oil or butter is used in the popping, is a breeze...just a dry paper towel after the unit has cooled. There are 3 restrictors...2 are loose and 1 doesn't open all the way....THAT IS HOW IT WAS DESIGNED. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FORCE OPEN THE 3rd RESTRICTOR. In genera, it's a good little popper.

Nice popper

This air popper is great. I've tried several including the microwave kind, but this makes more popcorn, without all the hulls that don't pop. Yes, it is a little messy, the countertop looks like there has been a light snow falling, but it's minimal and easy wipe up with a damp rag. All air poppers have to vent and therefore are messy, it's worth the great low calorie treat. I like how this popper has a cap that when you flip the lid upside down, any hulls fall into a little grate and stay out of the popcorn bowl. It's not too big, and I live in a small apartment.

Love this product, so nice to not have the popcorn fly out everywhere when it hits the bowl [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

GREAT POPCORN POPPER, EASY USE, EASY CLEAN & FUN !

I purchased this before reviews were available. So glad I did I have told all of my friends to buy one. BEFORE USING PLEASE read your manual completely. Mine came with a correction slip, but the manual gives you great tips. Here's why I do to make things super easy. It states to remove the top bowl, and flip back two of the metal grids and PREHEAT 2 minutes, then unplug and then add popcorn, no more that 1/2 cup. Instead of unplugging I have a surge protector bar mounted to my kitchen cabinet.. I plug in the popper for preheating but after two minutes I just hit the switch on the surge protector, add the popcorn, and then flip the switch on the surge protector back on. This saves plugging and unplugging the unit. It makes excellent popcorn every time!! A little hint in manual is that if you notice that your popcorn isn't popping as good as it did when you first opened the package it came in just put it in an airtight container and add water ( it tells you how much in the manual) shake the container every day. It turns out that popcorn tends to dry out and the more moisture content in it the better it pops. I tried this after my popcorn had been open several weeks and I hadn't used it all , it really made a difference. Be sure to take the small plastic lid off of the large bowl that goes on top while popping and then when the popcorn is done, place the little lid back on top , hold on to the base and bowl handles, flip the unit upside and shake gently and any unpopped kernals , which I only have a few maybe 3-5when the popcorn is fresh a few more as the popcorn gets older, will fall into the little top lid, and they won't be in the large bowl of freshly , popped, oh so yummy popcorn. It also says if you are using popcorn seasonings the shake on kind, if you spray the popcorn after it is popped with a little nonstick cooking spray and then sprinkle your seasonings on the popcorn they will stick a little better to it. I do this as well. REMEMBER DO NOT PUT OIL OR MELTED BUTTER INTO THE POPPER. IF YOU WANT BUTTER(I DON'T) THEN MELT IT SEPERATLY IN MICROWAVE OR SMALL POT. I REALLY LIKE THIS POPPER , IN FACT I JUST THINK I JUST TALKED MYSELF INTO MAKING SOME WHEN I GET FINISHED THIS REVIEW. BUy THIS POPPER YOU WILL REALLY LIKE IT!!!!

Works great and looks neat

Simple but clear instructions and the machine works very well. Second time around I accidentally put too much corn in the 'hopper' and the overheating switch kicked in. I threw all the kernels and popped corn into a plastic- bag- lined steal waste can - which promptly melted clean through the plastic but was caught by the metal container. Not a fault with the machine, it acted appropriately by turning off the electric until it cooled sufficiently. It worked straight away after it had cooled and I am very pleased with the popped corn it produces; or rather my wife is, I can't stand the stuff myself!

Good product

Very good. All the kernels popped. In the instructions it says put a level 1/2 cup of kernels. I thought they meant a 1/2 cup of kernels, but they were talking about the line in the popper. Donot let the kernels exceed that line or the air popper will shut down. Popcorn was delicious! Came out well. Easy to clean up.

We like it

We like this popcorn maker a lot! The cover for the bowl is already not wanting to fit anymore though. Also, you have to unplug the machine at just the right time or else some of your popcorn may be a little chewy. All in all we have enjoyed this maker a lot. Our 1 and a half year old and two and a half year old both get excited when they see it come out.

1. After the corn is in the bowl
by POPCORN
2. IF you can get it to work, you place an enclosed cover over the air vent on top. Then you turn the entire popper upside down and the top become a bowl. You can then add whatever toppings you like. However, I have owned one for about 45 days and it is a real pain to deal with. I DO NOT RECOMMEND that you buy this popper. If you can get it to work once PER DAY, you will be lucky.
by Jona
3. This popper does not have an area for adding butter.
by CommunityAnswer
4. I add salt and butter immediately after popping. The popcorn is still warm which helps to salt and butter stick. The bowl is big enough to easily shake it around without spilling the popcorn.

1. Go to the Presto website

2. It looks great in action. The problem is getting it to work at all. If you are lucky it will make popcorn ONCE PER DAY. DO NOT BUY this popper.

1. If your popper shuts off, it is usually a symptom of over filling the popping chamber. When this happens, the unit will overheat and shut itself off. We then recommend a 15 minute cool down period. The popper needs 1/2 cup of corn - anything over the 1/2 cup that is put into the chamber will cause the unit to overheat. If what you are experiencing is not described above, customers can reach out to Presto Customer Service Department so that we can assist you further.

2. It did it to me but was a natural action because I placed too much corn into the hopper. Try less, it worked well for me after stayed with the instructions (1/2 cup only)
