This machine features an automatic stirring rod and it uses an electrically powered halogen heater as the heating resource. In a word, it is able to offer you fine-flavored popcorn.

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • This machine can make a large amount of tasty popcorn at a time and the capacity can be up to 20 cups.

Cons

  • This popcorn maker doesn’t come with a measuring cup or any popcorn recipes, so you need to search online to find more.

Performance

Generally, if you add 2/3 cup of kernels, this machine can produce 20 cups of popcorn. And you will not get burnt kernels. One thing you need to pay attention is that when the popping slows, you’d better quickly flip it over to make the kernels away from its heating element. This is because the releasing hot steam may burn you.

The popcorn this machine produces tastes terrific, even if you may get 1/2 teaspoon of unpopped kernels. This is not a big problem. This best hot oil popcorn makers feature an on-off switch, so you don’t need to turn it off by unplugging this machine and this can avoid reaching past a very hot popcorn maker. This feature is a good feature when it comes to the safety consideration.

However, this machine doesn’t come with all the parts like other best popcorn makers do. For example, this model doesn’t come with a measure cup that other low-priced may offer. However, this doesn’t means it is useless. It is ideal for newlyweds students and other people with a little kitchen implements.

However, you will not find any popcorn recipes on its website. If you need new recipes, you may need to find some by searching on Google. And all the removable parts cannot be washed in your dishwasher, so you need to wash them by hand. This is not a convenient feature. Another drawback of this machine is the materials it uses. All the plastic parts are not BPA-free. Even if the FDA claim a low quantity is safe, some people may worry about the health issue.

However, this is a high quality popcorn maker and I really like its warranty. This machine comes with a 5-year warranty which is so longer than others, making it out of this ordinary on the market. A user manual is also included with this machine. If you have any question or problem, you can check the user manual first or contact the manufacturer through phone or email.

When you first use this best hot oil popcorn popper, its stirring rod may make a scratching sound during the popping process. This is because its rod is so close to its heating area. If you dislike the sound, you can loosen its screw-on knot which holds the rod. This can help a bit.

Another thing you need to pay attention is its hot steam. When you turn it over to get the fresh popcorn, the hot steam will be released and you need to be more careful. The steam comes from the heated corn and it is very hot. Fortunately, it comes with 2 heat-resistant handles on each side, so you can get a good grip.

However, this machine also has its drawbacks. It doesn’t offer a measuring cup and you cannot find any recipe on its website. Although it is not a big problem, it is somehow inconvenient. Of course, sometimes only salt and butter can make the popcorn tastes terrific. Sometimes you may want to add other flavors. In this situation, you can use Google to search for popcorn recipes on other websites. Another drawback is its removable parts. They are made of plastic and are not dishwasher-safe, so you need to wash them by hand.

This machine only comes with a 90-day warranty, which is shorter than others that offer at least a 1-year warranty. However, if you have any problems, you can check its FAQs on its website or check the user manual. And you also can contact the manufacturer through email or phone.

The whole popping process is very fast and the popcorn tastes terrific.

The only problem about this machine is that about 1/4 teaspoon of kernels will be left unpopped. This means it results in a little waste. If you use a tall-sided bowl, the result will be better, as some popped kernels will stray and will not enter the bowl. However, actually, this is not a big problem. Most popcorn makers have similar problems and the waste is only a little.

It has an electrical cord which is 45” long. This is the longest cord we ever met in the field of popcorn poppers. The longer cord means more flexibility you can get, since you can put the machine far away from the outlet. However, everything has two sides. This long cord may pose some safety hazards. For example, the longer cord means it is possible for children to pull on it or for someone to trip on it.

Although this machine has some removable parts, they are not dishwasher safe. This doesn’t mean they are not easy to clean. The fact is that they are easy to clean. After each popping process, you only need to use a little soap and water to wash its top and chute quickly and wipes its base. That’s all.

Its manufacturer claims that this model can make 24 cups or 6 quarts of popcorn at a time. Out test shows that it can make at least 20 cups. We used name-brand popcorn which may produce less popcorn than using less-costly popcorns. No matter what types of popcorns are used, the taste is good.

This machine has a heating plate which is a little different from other popcorn poppers on the market. Most of them use Teflon-like nonstick material to coat the metal surface, but this machine has a metal heating area that features a different texture.

You also can add some butter to your popcorn by putting a little butter on top of its heating vent area. The heat of the machine and the steam will make the butter melt and drop onto the popcorn inside. Of course, you cannot add butter onto the heating plate directly, because this will cause smoke.

Once you don’t hear any popping, this means all the kernels are popped. In order to prevent melted butter from oozing out, you need to grasp its handle of the dome and quickly flip the dome over. And then, you can get a serving bowl of fresh popcorn to eat.

The stirring rod, cover, bowl, as well as the heating plate cannot be washed in the dishwasher. Therefore, you need to wash them by hand. It has a 35.5 inches cord, but it doesn’t offer a cord storage area.

Extras

If you are the first time to make popcorn yourself, some recipes are essential. In its instruction booklet, there are some popcorn recipes that can help you easily to make popcorn. For example, if you plan to make Sassy South of the Border Popcorn, the ingredients include chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, red pepper, as well as other usual seasonings, like salt and butter. However, this one doesn’t come with a measuring cup and it doesn’t use BPA-free plastic.

PROS & CONS

The process is also very easy. This is a hot oil popper, so you need to put vegetable oil onto its heating base, and then add the kernels, and at last put the lid. That’s all. So easy, isn’t it? However, not all the oils are allowed to be used. It is not recommended to use butter, lard, margarine or shortening, because they can cause much smoke or even burn the corn.

This machine uses a stirring rod to avoid the popcorn from getting stuck. Within several minutes, you will get a large-sized bowl of delicious popcorn.

However, this popcorn popper can cause a small bit of waste. Out of 1 cup of kernels, it is about 1.25 teaspoons of kernels that are uppoped. Well, compared to other popcorn poppers, this is normal.

Sometimes, adding some butter to the popcorn can make the popcorn tasty. And you can do it during the popping process. On the top of its dome, there is a butter well, so you can put some pats of butter into the well. The heat of the popcorn popper and the steam will melt these pats of butter. The melting butter will drop down onto the corn when it is being popping. After the process is finished, you can use a handy lid to cover the butter well or vent and this can avoid any butter leak when you need to flip its dome over to double as a serving bowl.

Extras

Its electric cord is only 29.5” long, which is a little short for a popcorn popper. However, this can reduce the risk of looping down from the counter top and avoid a potential hazard. After finishing popping, you can store its electrical cord on its bottom by wrapping the cord around its feet. However, this one doesn’t come with a measure cup.

If you are the first time to make popcorn yourself, you can find some recipes and popcorn flavoring tips on West Bend’s website. For example, if you love chocolate flavoring, you can get some ideas on its website.
