Rated 1 out of 5Â by Carrie12 Motor Didn't Work
We bought this and sat it on the counter on Christmas Eve. The first time we tried to make popcorn in it we sat our 3 year old on the counter to watch the popcorn pop. The motor would work fine for 30 seconds and then stop. We would restart the motor and it would work for another 30 seconds and stop. I am returning this the next chance I get to the nearest Kohl's 90 miles away. Such a dissapointment on Christmas eve for a little girl...

I have bought this for a Christmas present for my 9 year old grandson who asked repeatedly for it. We have LOVED it. I love the light that keeps the popcorn warm even though we seldom have any left to keep warm. It came with measuring scoops, would have liked to have a popcorn scooper with it as well. So far we have enjoyed it! The clean up is not bad at all
Rated 3 out of 5Â by SlimStone Preheating is a must!
Our family just received this as a Christmas present the other day. I went out and purchased the necessary supplies to make popcorn. Today my boys had a few friends (5 boys!) over so I thought it would be wonderful to make them some popcorn for a snack. We popped one batch with no issues.
Unfortunately, with the second batch, I had five sets of little eyes waiting for it to pop and it never did. I ended up dumping those kernels into a pot and popping them on the stove. Then it hit me! The kettle needed to be preheated before every batch not just when you first start. I tried it out again & that was the problem!
It's too bad that the included manual is poorly written, includes very little instructions and has no trouble shooting section. If it did it would probably save a lot of people the disappointment of the machine not working properly and the hassle of needing to return it.

I gave this popcorn popper to my daughter for Christmas. We were all very dissappointed when she went to make popcorn after renting a movie and the door was broken. It was even more frustrating to learn that this was a seasonal item and we could not get it replaced.
