  • Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice popcorn maker with some durability concerns we purchased this popcorn maker a few months back. It works great and has been very entertaining for our kids birthday parties and movie night. it does seem cheaply built though and we are concerned about its durability. Already the logo on the front has fallen off and the front tray has cracked

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard to get popcorn out of popper I have been disappointed with this appliance. By the time I can scoop the popcorn out of the bottom, it is cold. The scoop is too small and it is easy to get popcorn on the floor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent machine! I purchased this popcorn maker as a late Christmas gift. For the most part, we try to eat clean; however, movie theater popcorn has always been a struggle to give up. Along comes this wonderful machine. We can now make our own at home and control how much butter and seasoning are in each batch. As if this wasn't enough, there are very few kernels left in the pot so it is also very cost effective. It is very easy to set up and operate. The only thing I wish it had was a way to install a heating bulb to keep the popcorn warm. I owned a cheaper version some time ago and I can definitely tell the difference. It is worth the extra money. It's perfect for movie nights, sporting events, or just to have a snack around the house. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that loves popcorn a wants to make it at home.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving my new popcorn maker! I go this for Christmas and couldn't be happier. I have always wanted one of these, I love popcorn and host movie nights. It is so easy to use, and holds up to 12 cups of popped popcorn. Not only does it look great, it does a great job popping the popcorn, hardly any unpopped kernals just like as advertised. I happen to have the counter space to keep it out all the time. My only con would be that it doesn't keep the popcorn heated, but I haven't seen any this size that do, especially for this price. Was a great conversation piece on the last movie night and it made my house smell amazing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing for the house! Growing up we always ate popcorn. That’s why we knew we needed this machine when we had kids! -It’s very easy to assemble. It took us roughly 5 mins. -It’s a great size. My husband was worried it would be too large. It fits nicely in our kitchen and can make up to 12 cups of popcorn if you want. -It’s easy to clean. You can wipe clean everything without any issues. -You can make multiple batches. The directions tell you you need to wait for the machine to cool down enough to make another one. Might be an issue if you need a lot right away, but this makes enough to feed the 4 of us in one batch no issue. -Our batches almost pop all our kernels! Only a few don’t pop but that’s totally normal for any popcorn machine or bags.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Entertaining, Efficient and Easy to Clean Due to health issues, I haven't been able to go to movie theaters for 15 years, so we ordered this for Christmas and my sweetheart put it together for me. The look of this machine takes me back years to fond memories of movies at the theater with family and friends and popcorn with butter. It was entertaining watching it pop the first batch of popcorn, which turned out really well and tasted wonderful. We popped 2.5 scoops of kernels and almost all of them cooked. I took a picture of the small number that was left in the pot, although there were a few more caught in the kernel catcher at the bottom of the tray. It was really easy to clean up and it's all ready to go again. I can't wait for my grandbabies to come over because they're going to LOVE this!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kids are Obsessed! I love this popcorn maker! Very easy to use once you set it up the first time. Make a large batch so we don’t need to keep on making batches. Almost no wasted curnals, pops most curnals so that’s appreciated! The kids LOVE popcorn night! I’m happy to gather around with the kids & make their favourite treat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real Movie Popcorn! My teenage daughter loves having her friends over for movie nights. We'll go through several packages of microwave popcorn during these nights. We thought a movie theater popcorn maker might add some fun to the whole movie night plus allow us to use kernels instead of the microwave popcorn. The Throwback Movie Theater Popcorn Maker is really easy to use. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. It comes with a spoon for the oil, a cup for the kernels and a scoop for the finished popcorn. The machine will hold about 2 batches of popped popcorn. One batch allowed 3 of us to have a nice sized bowl of popcorn. The popcorn tasted almost like real movie theater popcorn! It's definitely closer than the microwave stuff. For cleanup, we just wiped down the interior with a wet towel. The biggest and only issue we have with the popper is where to store it when not in use!

  • Does the door and kettle come out for cleaning?

    Asked by: Nana
    Hi Nana, According to the manfacturer's instructions, disassemble the kettle, stirrer and lid for cleaning. With a clean damp cloth clean the kettle surface inside and out. There's no reference of how to clean the door besides wiping the housing clean and dry with a soft dry cloth.
