"This is it."

I purchased this for my sister for her bday. It only holds a half-serving, which I like. This is a good basic popcorn popper as long as you follow the instructions. Flavor is fine, produces perfect popcorn fluffs. Aside from that, it's a great product. I use Organic Arrowhead Mills white corn. You can even use cocoa powder if you want a chocolate flavor popcorn.

Hamilton Beach 73400 Final Thoughts

"This is awesome!"

So it automatically adjust heat and time accordingly. Main reason was because of how similar it was to the one I had growing up. Put the silicone lid on and it stays fresh for at least three days, crisp and fresh. I would not be rough with the handle at all, it is a little thin. I recommend this air popper for sure. Gotta think outside the box like say, Elon Musk. My popcorn is fluffy and crispy and tastes wonderful given that it has no oil.

Popping popcorn with an air popper is a money saver. They quickly fell for this new sleek, pretty popper. Great value for money and looks pretty good too! I really dislike microwave popcorn bag.

"- bowl lid."

EDIT- It's been over a year and it's still working great! The plastic handle allows grabbing it immediately. Laziest shipping job I have ever seen. The unit comes apart easily for storage. I recommend his simple to use machine. EDIT- It's been over a year and it's still working great! I love popcorn but buying organic popcorn in 3 bag boxes gets expensive.

"Some more than others."

We had that popcorn maker for many years, until it stopped working. This thing does the trick for sure and you can add salt or butter as necessary. You can bake it a little to harden and crisp if you'd like. This is a good basic popcorn popper as long as you follow the instructions. I looked and Amazon, and I purchased in on April 21 and it made it to Sept 28. All the movie nights we had with my parents and friends! We think it tastes a lot better than microwave popcorn.

"Visionary."

The full size serving makes just the right amount for my husband and I to split. Do not pre-heat the unit, it will melt! It leaves less un-popped kernels using hot air to pop the kernels. I chose this one for several reasons. This year, I decided Santa was going to gift my family with one. It saves a lot of calories, though I do add melted butter on it. Glad it got melted so I needed a replacement- the Dash is fantastic.

"Turn off heat."

But once you've popped 3 or so times, you’ll have it down to the second. Aside from that, it's a great product. I am still searching for the prefect air popping popcorn machine. Because of the shape of the glass, you need a fork to get the popcorn out. It has a solid construction, and it is lightweight and easy to clean. I'm glad I bought it and here’s why. My popcorn is fluffy and crispy and tastes wonderful given that it has no oil.

Fast- takes about 4 mins to pop a batch. But once you've popped 3 or so times, you’ll have it down to the second. There is a butter tray on top that is removable. Laziest shipping job I have ever seen. The selection of popcorn you buy affects how many unpopped kernels get blown out. You can bake it a little to harden and crisp if you'd like.

"Perfect popcorn."

I chose this one for several reasons. You can bake it a little to harden and crisp if you'd like. You could be, too, just buy one of these and move on, you can afford it. It will need some cooling time in between batches if you're popping more than that. We have had zero problems and could keep going to make more if we needed. This means if you only want a cup or two, this machine may not be your best bet. I bought the larger one, and eat so much more popcorn than I ever did.

Amish Country Popcorn Final Thoughts

"Had to have purple."

Hot air poppers blow out some unpopped kernels. And a lot less seeds than any other popper I have had. Fast- takes about 4 mins to pop a batch. Thank god this wasn't a gift for someone I live with. The popcorn tastes great, and the not needing oil makes it healthier. It is normal to end up with 5 or less seeds. We think it tastes a lot better than microwave popcorn.

Good product, simple and works fine. Washed it in my dishwasher, no problems! Do not pre-heat the unit, it will melt! It will need some cooling time in between batches if you're popping more than that. They are too light and may blow out during popping.

"But meh, whatever."

Use fresh, yellow or large kernel popcorn from a vendor that turns it over quickly. Really a unique gift and I will be buying more! It is normal to end up with 5 or less seeds. The seeds that are left I put back in the microwave and almost all of them pop. 99 for it, but my children are very disappointed. It has a solid construction, and it is lightweight and easy to clean. I even went out and bought different flavor powders to toss into the popcorn.

This Dash machine is overall fantastic- owned it about 3 months. The container is so pretty, I leave it out in a corner of my counter. This little popper is expensive but worth every penny. You don't know how long that bag of store brand corn sat on the shelf. But the butter actually melts too fast and starts to burn the popcorn! I am still searching for the prefect air popping popcorn machine. The full size serving makes just the right amount for my husband and I to split.
