Rated 2 out of 5Â by PopcornGal Kernels on the floor & bottom of bowl
Replaced the popper I'd had for 25 years with this Presto. First batch popped approximately 6 cups of popcorn; nowhere near the 18 cups the manufacturer suggests. Even though I measured the popcorn correctly, the first thing out of the shooter were kernels. It took a lot longer than my older popper, and resulted in much less popped corn. Some kernals were flying right pass the bowl and onto the floor. I had to make 2 1/2 batches to fill the same bowl my older popper filled in just one. There was a least a unpopped batch of kernels at the bottom of the bowl. Love the color red that was an option for this popper, but it's getting returned to Kohl's.

I loved the style and color blue, but I learned a big lesson that just because something looks good it doesn't mean it works. Every time I try to use this, it throws popcorn everywhere but the bowl. I tried covering the chute with aluminum foil so it would spit the popcorn into the bowl, but the foil keeps falling off and it still spits popcorn almost everywhere but inside the bowl. It was cheap, but now I have to throw this out and have to buy a new one. (It wastes so much popcorn.) Also, some of the kernels stay in the bottom and burn. I am getting rid of this, and I now have to spend more money on a better style so cheap isn't always the answer.

I Loved the look of this popper! I loved that it wasn't Big and Bulky! But, seriously it really doesn't work. First of all I bought the Orville Redenbacher Popcorn kernels for this machine thinking it would work best. I got popcorn pelting out in Every direction and almost 1/2 of the kernels did not pop at all! Huge Waste. I tried many times. I called the company...Presto. They advised me to use a no name brand kernels in machine. It worked slightly better, but did not resolve the flying popcorn issue. The popcorn also did not taste as good. I absolutely am dissappointed and wished I hadn't thrown my old popper out:( I am returning mine!

I bought this from Kohl's, My wife and I are air pop popcorn professionals. We have enjoyed roughly 28 years of blissful popcorn popping. But this popper is absolutely terrible. As other reviewers have mentioned sooo many kernels don't get popped, I don't think they could have purposely designed it to pop so poorly. Orville Redenbacher should be seriously concerned about the damage to their brand, as I won't be trusting the brand in the future. I typically research things well before buying and wish I had in this case.
Once I order and replace this machine I will crush it in my back yard and will try to upload the result. Yes, I'm that bothered by this popper.
