Presto Orville Redenbacher Hot Air Popcorn Popper Review

Some would dub me a popcorn expert. A fanatic, so to speak. I’ve owned the Orville Redenbacher Hot Air Popcorn Popper for about 5 years. So I’ve used it, let’s see… what’s 5 multiplied by 365? All jokes aside, this popcorn popper has seen a lot of use and is indeed still popping. Reliably, consistently, and without fail. No burnt kernels and very few unpopped kernels.

I love that in minutes I can have a huge bowl of popcorn with no need for oil or fat. Of course I pile on tons of butter, but that’s optional. The popcorn comes out of the popcorn as perfect popcorn. A blank slate. Ready for whatever concoction you have planned for it.

Clean up is a cinch too. All you really have to do is let it cool down a bit and then throw it back wherever you store it. It’s lightweight and easy to move so it won’t break your back. Every so often you can wash the shield and measuring cup with hot soapy water to keep it fresh. I use this appliance more than any other appliance in my kitchen. In my mind, the Orville Redenbacher Hot Air Popcorn Popper is a must have.
