PERFORMANCE

The Great Northern Popcorn Hot Air Popper Yellow can pop around 18 cups in approximately 2.5 minutes. During my tests, I would make around 16 cups in the given period. I also used premium quality kernels which anyways yield fewer cups of popcorn. The popping process was quick, and the corn tasted scrumptious. But there was around a quarter teaspoon of kernels which means a lot of un-popped kernels are left behind.
Also, you must select a tall-sided bowl to catch some of the popped popcorn which would fly in all directions and not land directly as the rest.

EASY TO USE AND HANDLE

This popcorn maker is very easy to use and handle. You can simply clean the base and cover with a damp cloth. In less than 3 minutes and 16 cups of popcorn is ready to munch. So, let the party continue when you have the Great Northern Popcorn Hot Air Popper in your kitchen. Although, removable parts of the popper are not dishwasher safe you can wash the chute and top with a little soap and water quickly.
