I receive this popcorn machine as a Christmas present and love it! It makes the best tasting popcorn! (well, once I add all my ingredients to the popcorn!) It is super easy and fun to use, especially with the kids! It makes movie night more fun! It is pretty easy to clean, I usually just wipe it down with a damp cloth on the sides, bottom and top, wherever I can get too. It would have been nice to have a warmer in this popcorn unit but I think that is made for more of the larger popcorn machines that makes a lot of popcorn. I would recommend this to my friends and family. It is super cute and fun! Also it's not too bulky for storage, we keep it in our pantry for easy access when we want to make delicious popcorn!
