Presto 04820 PopLite Hot Air Popper

Best hot air popper! Convenient, natural and light! Pops regular or gourmet popping corn with hot air, not oil, for a healthy, low calorie treat ! Fast! Pops up to 18 cups of gourmet corn in less than 2 1/2 minutes. Leaves virtually no un-popped kernels. 120 volts, 60 Hz only.Plug in Presto’s PopLite and the party begins. In less than 2-1/2 minutes you’ll have up to 18 cups–two large bowlfuls–of fluffy popcorn with virtually no unpopped kernels. And because the machine uses hot air instead of oil, the resulting snack is healthier and lower in calories. That’s not to say you can’t add butter; in fact, the 1/2-cup measuring cup on top of the popper doubles as a butter melter. Simply put in the desired amount of margarine or butter (room temperature is best), and it melts from the heat produced during the popping process. The clear plastic cover and cup, which must stay on during popping so the popped corn doesn’t fly all over the room, easily remove for hand cleaning with warm, soapy water. No other clean-up is required. While a few unpopped kernels spring out the chute as the machine begins to heats up, the chute does a good job of directing the popped corn into a bowl. The popper measures 14 by 9 by 6-1/2 inches, and is identical to Presto’s Orville Redenbacher Hot Air Corn Popper except for color and logo. Presto covers 1 year limited warranty. –Ann Bieri NOTE: State of California Proposition 65 requires that we include the following warning: WARNING!

  1. I survived the Presto PopLite Hot Air Popper! I ordered this 01/03. On the eve of 01/04, I read the reviews about it shooting hot unpopped popcorn kernels, the top melting, and billowy smoke. Then I tried cancelling online plus calling Amazon customer service. They said it was on its way, would try and stop it, but if they weren’t able to, I could just send it back for a refund. When I got it today, I just decided to try it and see how it goes.There are some things you should know:1. There is no On/Off. If you have…

  2. Yay! So much fun! With the white popcorn, some of it tended to fly out before it popped. Tipping it back a little helped keep it in the popper. Also, the booklet that came with the machine stated white popcorn pops smaller. I purchased Orville yellow corn also, just to see the difference. Wow, get the yellow corn! Bigger, fluffier, and fills the bowl fuller with the same amount of seed. The pic is 1/2 cup yellow corn in the blue bowl and 1/2 cup white corn in the white bowl. Big difference. These are huge bowls…
