4 out of 4 found this review helpfulThe school's PTO bought this popcorn machine to use at school fundraisers. It's easy to use and it's the perfect size for our needs. I've only used packaged popcorn kits (kernels, oil, salt/flavoring) and it cooks the popcorn well and quickly. Clean-up of the interior is easy with warm water and paper towels; I remove the kettle to clean it in hot, soapy water. I consider it easily portable and light as I'm a petite person and I'm able to load it into the trunk of my minivan and carry into school without having to rest on something on the way in. Be careful when cleaning the crumb tray because the edges of the slot are not smooth and I've cut myself more than once when trying to get out the crumbs that missed the tray. The scoop didn't last long - the black handle broke after using it for only 3 events. Despite the crumb tray slot and scoop being sub-par, I'm still giving this product 5-stars since those two items don't impact the overall use and functionality of this machine.
3 out of 4 found this review helpfulLove this popcorn machine! I'm a detail person so it takes me some time to pull the trigger on a purchase; I do a lot of research. I decided on the 8 oz kettle and I couldn't be more pleased. It arrived promptly and was easy set up. It's not too heavy; I can carry it by myself (ex: from car to house). I have slight difficultly for me to get the oil packet into the kettle, but nothing to make my change my mind on the purchase. It just feels awkward but it could be that I'm a lefty or the height of my cabinet. Either way, I still love it. I highly recommend the powder cleaner for the kettle. I didn't buy it at first but it is worth it. I've cleaned the kettle without it but it's difficult to get the crust off the bottom. After my research, this site was the best value, especially with free shipping.
2 out of 3 found this review helpfulPopcorn comes out good but you have to make sure you are using the proper amount and letting the popcorn heat up prior to adding your oil, which will produce more popped corn from our experience. We are using kits that are meant for 8 or 10 oz poppers and it seems it is pushing out a large amount of the kernels because the popcorn is too thick on the bottom of the kettle. Cleaning is a little difficult, especially if you want to clean oil and salt off windows after popping. Small space, almost impossible to clean unless you totally remove kettle which isn't practical all the time or you have to wait till completely cool. The problem is that you have a very messy machine until you can do that and it doesn't look great on the counter. Small crevices between glass and metal are extremely difficult to clean out, you definitely need to keep a small brush at hand to clean out or you can see it from the outside of the machine. If you are using this for merchandising as we are, it is a little frustrating. Also, popcorn will fly out of the kettle and through the gap between the doors and the machine so you need to watch out for that as well. Overall, it's a good machine but there are a few little issues to look out for. I will say if you do any volume of popcorn for a snack bar, etc, you may want a bigger machine as it will be easier to scoop popcorn, clean and pop a larger volume. We like ours but it's taken a little adjusting and I'll probably move to a different machine when feasible. Read Less Read More
1 out of 1 found this review helpfulThis has been a great investment. We use it for home use from movie night to family events. We have also used it for church and fire dept fundraisers. It is a very well built machine considering how much i move it around.

1 out of 1 found this review helpfulThis pop corn machine is 100% perfect .I bought it for my restaurant. It is super fast. I recommend it. William S. Morris Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA.
1 out of 1 found this review helpfulWhen buying things for our new candy store we wanted to have some of the goodies you might get at the fair. This popcorn machine is just perfect for that and it produces a great tasting popcorn !
1 out of 1 found this review helpfulWhat a great product for the price!! Super fast shipping, plus the product was packed well and easy to assemble. I had it out of the box, sanitized and popping corn in less than 30 minutes! Great volume and hardly any "old maids". I can't say enough great things about this popper.
1 out of 1 found this review helpfulWe had fresh, yummy popcorn within 10 minutes from start to finish. It took about five minutes for the unit to preheat and about 5 minutes for the popcorn to pop. Since the poppper only has three toggle switches, the popper is very easy to use.
1 out of 1 found this review helpfulSeveral years ago we bought a popcorn machine that was smaller than this one and held less popcorn. It cost us over $400. When we decided to get a second machine, I found the Carnival King and am amazed at how great this is. We make popcorn 2-3 times a day - 6 days a week. It is fast, easy and pops uniformly. Very happy with this popper.
1 out of 1 found this review helpfulI'm highly impressed with this 8 ounce Carnival King popcorn maker was kind of a pain in the butt to figure out when to put the popcorn kernels in make sure you're using non-expired good fresh popcorn kernels
We purchased this popcorn machine and we are in love with it. We purchased it to rent out to our customers and for personal use and I have to say it is everything we wanted and our customers love it! If you’re looking for a popcorn machine I highly recommend this one, you will not be disappointed.
This’s so good that I bought another one last month for my sister... it’s so convenient when you are having a get together at home.
I really like this little popcorn machine for its speed in heating up and popping the corn but I wish the popper was mounted just a bit higher so I can get the scoop in and out more easily. Cleanup is not easy inside of the popper but that’s probably true for all popcorn machines.
We bought this popper for Christmas two years and and just love it! We use it at least once or twice a week and it always makes great popcorn. We’ve found that it works best for us when we use coconut oil for popping and usually have very little seeds left unpopped at the end of the batch. We love it!!
After much research I finally decided to purchase this popcorn machine. Best decision I ever made. Easy to use and easy to clean. I use simple hot water. I also purchased the cart to make even more of a statement.
We ordered this popcorn machine for at home personal use. we actually use it A LOT! between us and the kids someone always seems to be going out to the garage to fire this baby up. and my kids friends always seem to want to come hang out at our place now. lol. it makes delicious popcorn. we buy the prepackaged bags on here as well for it so the kids can easily toss in the kit and bam! we don't have to worry about them over filling it
i love my popcorn machine, it's easy to move around and it cleans easy too, the popcorn pops really good and i still havent' burnt any.
I love my popcorn popper I use it for my popcorn business it's working great the setup was easy and the clean up is easy as well
This popcorn maker works well. The only issue is you need to be sure to dump the popcorn when it finishes popping. It won’t all be popped out of the pan and will burn. Popcorn pops up quickly and tastes great.
