I'd shopped around for an electric popcorn maker as I didn't like the hot oil smell that lingered in the kitchen from pan popcorn. After reading many reviews, I happened across this unit on sale! and used it as soon as I got home.
This unit has an on/off switch. It is light, compact, and easy to use. I have had no problem with the lid melting or distorting. It melts the butter well. When in operation, the base of the unit is tepid to the touch but the lid gets hot. I made about 8 batches of popcorn for my family of 6. One batch should be enough for 2 adults however we were hungry. There were only several kernels that didn't pop and was about same number with each batch @ 7-10. The popcorn doesn't blow all over, no need to make magic angles with the bowl to catch any "flying" popcorn. It's reasonably noisy, not any louder than a hand blender or hair dryer. The popping only lasts 4-5 min and the popcorn is deliCIOus.
