Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke after 4 uses Really disappointed this popcorn maker broke after 4 uses and really mad at myself for not reading the reviews before I purchased. Like a lot of people the handle on the popcorn maker broke, the cheap plastic gears just don't cut it! It's unfortunate this breaks so easily and so quickly it makes really yummy popcorn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, no unpopped kernels! I got this for my husband at Christmas because he refuses to eat microwave popcorn. A friend has one and loves it, recommended it. I was a little skeptical because the pan is kind of thin, but it works great. And it's fast! One half cup of popcorn kernels fills it to the brim when popped. It was easy to clean, and I'll make sure to get the pot and top completely clean so I don't get any buildup of old oil. Some might consider that high maintenance, but if you take care of it, it will last longer. The lid fits on tightly. The wood handle doesn't heat up so it's easy to hold. We love it and recommend it highly. We also like that it isn't non-stick since we don't use teflon-coated cookware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from healthy popcorn We stopped using microwave popcorn because the chemicals. We use this great pan now with olive oil & butter and every kernel is popped and tastes fresh!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beaks too easially I picked this up during the after holiday sale, though after 4 uses one of the little plastic gears snapped. I brought it back and it was exchanged for a second. a week later the gear snapped again. the gears need to be beefed up, the cheap plastic cant stand up to basic use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Item! This Theater Popcorn Popper is fantastic! It makes PERFECT popcorn in <5 minutes. It is super easy to clean. We can't go back to microwave popped popcorn ever again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Daily Treat! I bought this as a Christmas gift for my daughter-in-law at her request. She reported that she had to do a little straightening of the cover, but it works great. In fact, her 11 year-old-son uses it every night to treat his parents and three siblings!I'm considering buying another one....for when they visit!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality/cheap parts Easy to use, but cheap parts. The plastic gears broke on the third use. Unfortunate, since it's fun to use and makes good popcorn. Though I shouldn't need them so soon, access to replacement parts would be nice, as well. Now it's just junk.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap parts This popper broke the second time I used it. The plastic gear was too light weight to take the pressure. Why not use a metal gear? I did love the popcorn it made.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works great, until the cheaply made parts break... This popcorn popper makes great popcorn. But the gears, which are plastic, break easily. I was very careful when turning the crank and the gear on the SECOND popper broke, which is why I had to take it back the first time. If these gears were made out of metal, there would be no problems, but are made out of cheap plastic that breaks very easily. I gave two stars because of how great the popcorn was, but don't waste your money. Most things I buy at Crate and Barrel are pretty wonderful, but this is an unfortunate exception. I'm taking mine back for a refund and plan on buying another popper elsewhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It does a very good job. I received this Theater Popcorn Popper as a Christmas gift. On the 3rd time of use one of the gears broke and no longer could stir as it popped.I called and Cratenbarrell sent me another one and this one did not last as long as the first one. I called and they are sending the 3rd one. I hope it doesn't break, but I'm not encouraged because the gears are made of plastic (evidently a poor grade of plastic). Each gear that cracked cracked where the set screw was. The gears need to be metal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, fast, and healthy! when my kids were growing up, we had one of these. This is just as wonderful as the 35 years ago version. The popcorn is delicious and we used Crate and Barrel popcorn and their three seasoning (the popcorn that comes with the popper is inferior to the Crate and Barrel Multicolor popcorn. It is wonderful! We own a gas stove.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Theater popcorn popper I bought this as a gift for Christmas on 12/14/2914. It fell apart at the gear rotating the handle in two weeks. I then returned to store and exchanged the appliance on 1/4/2015 and it fell apart once again at the first popping! Unbelievable! I am now just going to return for my money. This was unfortunately the worst pop-corn maker ever!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality - Have returned two of them I own the original Whirley Popper, but was wanting a new one and this one seemed to have thicker metal. The problem is they used cheaper plastic for the turning mechanism. Tried two of them and both broke within a week of use. I do like the pot better though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fun!! I have had this popper for over a year. It makes great popcorn quickly. All the kernels pop, there are only a couple "old maids". My little grandson loves making popcorn with me so much, I got him his own popper for him to use at his home with his momma.
