    SAFE, EASY, FUN!!
    As with any heat using cookware, PAY ATTENTION to your heat seatings, amount of oil and corn used. HIGH HEAT NOT REQUIRED! PAY ATTENTION to quantity of oil used. Popper has not spit oil out at me, and ALL kernels pop. I have enjoyed my popper so much, that I have gone to 1/8th cup of unpopped corn, and make to poppings just to have an excuse to play with it! The bag of corn and essentials was MOST fun popping!! Great flavor.

    Cheap, cheap, cheap.
    One of the cheapest and most poorly constructed small kitchen appliances I have ever purchased. The lid and pot are such thin aluminum it's possible to bend both by thumping them with your finger nail. When removing them from the shipping box (which was not damaged) the lid was bent so bad it would not sit on the pot. The gears are cheap soft plastic, the paddles are just thin aluminum wire. When the kernels are almost popped, it puts such a drag on the paddles the gears slip and the auger will not turn. Consequently, all the kernels do not pop, and the ones that did burn on the bottom of the thin pot very quickly. Very disappointed in this product. It's going in the next garage sale, maybe I can at least recoup the shipping charges.

    This popcorn popper is great. It's easy to use and makes the best popcorn. The unit is very easy to clean, which is a big plus. I've had some of the electric popcorn poppers, but I don't think they get the oil hot enough, because the popcorn comes out kind of tough and chewy. The popcorn that comes out of the Whirly-Pop is fresh and tender. It's even good the next day, if you store it in an air tight container. I personally use coconut oil, as that's what the movie theaters use and I think it adds flavor to the popped corn.

    Makes the best popcorn and easy to use.

    Verified purchase

    Love this popper. Have had one for years. Easy, fun and safe to turn the crank, no burned popcorn or burned fingers! We like to use regular vegetable oil and regular popcorn rather than the prepackaged stuff that comes in the box, though. After popping, dump into a big bowl, add a little melted butter and salt and you are ready for movie night! Bought this particular one as a gift for our son who couldn't do without in his own kitchen. Delivery was fast. Arrived sooner than expected.

    Beats microwave

    Verified purchase

    We had finally gotten tired of microwave popcorn, tough, not completely popped , etc. I found the whirley pop and remembered it from years ago. I have a ceramic top stove and finding the right temperature took almost 2 minutes!! it's a trial and error depending on your stove but you can pretty much gauge it. It feels cheap, yes, it's aluminum, but it does what it is designed to do and the results are great.

    Great product but Walmart need to carry the individual packets for popping in their stores as microwave and just popping corn won't give you theater type tasting popcorn.

    THIS WAS A GIFT FOR MY DAUGHTER

    Verified purchase

    I purchased this as a replacement for my daughter's pot, which was exactly like this pot. I broke her's when she was here for a visit and the breakage is the reason for the four stars. She loves making popcorn using this pot and it does work well. My only complaint is the gear mechanism on the top of the pot (that enables you to turn the handle to keep the popcorn moving inside the pot) is made of some kind of material (a type of heavy plastic/not metal) that doesn't hold up well to heat from the stove. I don't know how quickly the gear begins to disintegrate - it seems to "dry-out" and then crack and break -- her pot was quite old and had been given to her used? So buyer be aware of this potential when making your purchase. The price is certainly reasonable enough to replace this item if needed every four or five years! PS This time I purchased the red one....very cute!!! Handle and knobs are made out of a wood and all other features work well!

    It works

    Verified purchase

    I was looking for an alternative way to pop corn. This corn popper pretty well fit the bill. Compared to the electric poppers, this was a pretty good price. It works. It does what it is designed to do. Stirs the popcorn while it is popping. This is pretty lightweight aluminum, so you have to apply a little downward pressure to keep it on the stove burner while you turn the crank. Can be easily cleaned. Easy to take lid off and put back on. Doesn't take a "rocket scientist" to figure out how to take it apart and put it back together. The 25 year warranty is a plus. I'm not crazy about the popcorn kits. I don't think I'd trust putting all the contents in at one time. I split it up for 2 poppings. Only used about half for each popping.

    9. No you do not have to use the packaged products that come with the popper. In fact, I prefer to use my own vegetable oil and a nice brand of pop corn. I do not particularly like the packaged products that come with the popper. Although the popper is awesome.
