thanks!
This seems to have a lot of negative reviews on Amazon... Would anyone here who owns this recommend it or would you recommend a different one? Also just wondering - the popcorn boxes that come with these machines - if you put butter / oil / flavouring on your popcorn are the containers washable/reuseable? I assumed they must be, but then read somewhere they are made of paper(?). Does that mean you can only put dry unflavoured popcorn in them(?).

I bought one for my daughter for her birthday & we all love it.

My wife has butter on her popcorn & she puts a paper towel on the inside of the box for easy cleaning. I personally have mine plain & just fill a large glass bowl (yes a large bowl just for me (popcorn))

For me at £15 you can not go wrong & this is something the whole family can enjoy.
We've had this one for a year. The boxs are just paper/card so not really reusable, but the machine itself is well built and worth the money.

Got a similar one. It does the job but I had issue with popcorn flying across the room (minor issue). But for me is the taste that matters. To be perfectly honest, the traditional way taste for much better. Plain popcorn, no oil, the salt won't settle, what's the point? unless you're on a diet. Not a fan of butter on my popcorn, makes it soggy. Now it's doing a darn good job of collecting dust. My advice, save the £15. Use it to buy pretty much anything else and stick to the traditional method or get one that designed for microwave.

Musssy - Damn, I'd already ended up ordering one after the others posted their comments. I've always made my popcorn in a pan with oil manually but wanted something more convenient and with good results - the popcorn I normally make is really tasty but super unhealthy as I always end up making toffee popcorn for some reason if I'm using the hob. I definitely can't eat popcorn without lots of flavour on it. Also, I looked at the microwave ones, but then saw people on Amazon posting pictures of the glass breaking and smashing on it's own after several uses so that put me off.

Well - I received mine and tried it out.

Good: It makes popcorn really fast. No mess, no washing up and very convenient. Looks ok and is more fun. A lot less stressful than making corn in a pan. None of the popcorn flew out into the room - all went into the bowl. Hardly any unpopped which was good and it puffed up nicely.

Bad: The popcorn was noticeably soft and chewy. Totally lacking crunch. This same corn cooked in a pan with oil comes out crunchy.

Anyway I flavoured it with cinnamon and icing sugar and it tasted ok, just too soft - will need to get used to the texture.
