We find ourselves making popcorn all the time! It's so easy now to get great popcorn with this machine. Piece of advice though. To get perfectly buttered popcorn, leave your butter out while you are popping the corn so that it becomes soft and easy to melt. Then make sure to put it only on one side of the butter well so you leave at least half the air holes open. This way you'll have crispy buttered popcorn.
This is my 2nd popcorn maker (of this time). The 1st one was bad compared to this one. Based on experience. The machine performs excellently! (although the butter melting function still sucks, the butter melts but does not efficiently drop down leaving a bit of a mess on lid). Also based on this product. I see Baumann is a quality brand, and I am excited to buy more of their product.
