Here’s what I got, and then returned. I’ve always loved making popcorn with a hot air popper – it’s a healthy, delicious snack you can dress up or down depending on your mood. And the machine has always been one of the most functional and ugly kitchen appliances I own. But I love it. So when my old one died (different story), I was excited to get this one with its new design aesthetic. However, do not let it fool you, it contains some basic flaws that render it useless. First, it spits out more unpopped than popped kernels. And then the pieces that do pop wind up getting stuck in the gate. Lastly, there’s no tray on top to melt the butter. In short, this is the first hot air popcorn maker I’ve seen that may look decent, but doesn’t work well.
