Diane: I love this popper. Use i quite often and my granddaughters love to watch it pop. A very good purchase
D. Johnson "Chi-Town Dale": Overall I like this popper. No real mess and popcorn in less than ten minutes with virtually every kernel popped without having to stand over it and shake the pot like you do on a stove.The only negatives I have are:1) that it doesn't automatically turn off when done as advertised so you have to keep an eye on it if you don't want your popcorn to burn.2) the method of applying butter is not very good. You place chunks of butter into the top of the dome and the heat from the popping melts it, dripping the butter evenly onto the popcorn as it is stirred by the stirring arms. The problem is that some of the holes are indented and some are raised. If you mistakenly place the chunks onto the raised vents, the butter doesn't drop onto the popcorn because it takes too long to melt and flow over to the indeted vents. The vents meant for dripping the butter should be divided from those meant srictly for vening the steam generated by popping the corn. This way you don't accidentally block too many of the vents, which would cause the popcorn to become soggy.These are the reasons I only gave it 3 stars instead of 5. Fix these two problems and it is definately a 5 star product. I still love it a lot more than manually popping over a stove in a pot. The popcorn comes out a whole lot less greasy and 99.9% of the kernels pop unstead of about 90% the old fashinoned way.
DonMacJac: We have had our West Bend Stir Crazy for 15 years, at least!! And we use it A LOT!!! Our kids are now both out on their own and they were eating microwave popcorn and complained how they miss the wonderful popcorn they had when they were kids. So, for Christmas we purchased for each of them a Stir Crazy and they were thrilled!! No more microwave popcorn when the Stir Crazy makes DELICIOUS popcorn and the best part...you can watch it pop!!! A Stir Crazy is EASY to use, EASY to clean up and when ours finally now longer stirs, we'll order another!!!!
Donna M. Weigel "Donna Weigel": First let me address the review about the Teflon wearing off. That did happen. A lot. However we were just given a new popper a few months ago and the Teflon seemed thicker. We go through mass quantities of popcorn for two people but in two months it hasn't started to wear so maybe they fixed this now. The last popper we had that wore off it started right away. And yes you are right, that isn't good for you so I was hesitant in using this one. So far so good. I know that West Bend is no longer really `West Bend'. The company was sold and is no longer in West Bend Wisconsin. Maybe a change was made then.The thing is it makes the very best tasting popcorn anywhere and is so easy to use. I love it. Try using garlic oil in it. It makes popcorn taste like roast corn. Ymm!
Dragonwort Castle: We have used this type of popper for at least 10 years, probably closer to 15 or 20 years. Our first unit quit working last year so we bought another and it works great and just the same. We use it about 1 x week on the average and it pops all of the kernels, as it stirs as it pops. You will be less likely to break a tooth. It is very easy to prepare, use, and clean. Use a good/premium grade of popcorn. Our original unit had a yellow cylindrical top (a cylinder with a closed end but a holey butter circle with a plastic butter tub-type top, and the other end was open to be placed on the cooker and had 2 projected plastic handles. That top still fits this new base but this top is clear and is shaped more like a funnel. If you stick with the same item (popcorn popper, blender, etc.) you might be able to use the same parts (I notice). Highly recommended to anyone that wants to make popcorn quick and easy, and if a problem occurs I would buy it again. I hope this helps someone.
