I love the vintage/retro look of this popcorn popper. The red is a very pretty, bold color.Its a good size, not too big or too small, and looks very cool on our kitchen counter top. After about 3 minutes, you can pop a good amount of popcorn and find very few kernels left behind. It is also a very safe popcorn popper and I can leave it sit without worries. The outside doesn't get very hot either so if you have littler children you can safely leave them around it. Cleaning this machine is very easy as it comes apart and can be wiped clean. At a low cost this popcorn maker is very efficient and easy to use. I would definitely recommend it. Performance Pretty fast and efficient. Ease of Cleaning We wipe ours out constantly. Very easy to clean. Comes apart. Ease of Use Very easy. Durability Has held up for over a year.
