Deluxe Popcorn Station is rated 2.1 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice look, bad popper Purchased this online at new years and took 10 days to arrive. There was very little information on line about the machine, so I took a chance as Walmart has a decent return policy. First off in the picture the machine looks like it is made of metal of some sort, well it is all plastic. This does help to explain the price. Having said that I still think the machine looks great in my home theatre room, looks wise exactly what I was looking for. Installation of the machine is fairly quick, all you have to do is assemble the base, the top section is pre-built. Now one downside to the machine being plastic, is the base is not strong enough to hold the popper section. The company recognizes this in the instructions and includes a canvas bag with instructions to put 20lbs of sand in the bag and set it in the base. I had to laugh when I read that and then I re-read figuring I had it wrong. In my case I did not use sand, I just placed a 20lbs weight that I was not using and this did the trick. The top section easily attaches to the base with two thumb turn screws. This is great if you want to move the machine around or simply use the popper in another area of the house . I do outdoor movies in summer and thought this was a great feature. On the side of the machine there is a light switch and popper button. When you light it up it looks great, again exactly what I was looking for. The other side had a small compartment. I found the door did not work very well on mine. If I pulled the handle the plastic would bulge on the other side and get caught. So to open the door, I ad to use two hands, one to pull the handle the the other to old the opposite side in to prevent the bulge. Again a bit of a pain, but not the worse thing. Then I proceeded to make first batch of popcorn and that's when things went south. There was nothing special to do in the instructions for first batch and I proceeded as normal. Most of it did not pop (maybe 15 kernels). So I cleaned out the popper, which is a bit of a pain. You can't tilt the machine and have to use this plastic tool to get the unpopped kernels out of the machine. It works but thats the best I can say. My next few batches went better with more kernels popped, but I quickly learned not to fill the measuring cup that came with the machine to the Max line, it appeared to much for the popper to handle. Using less worked better and I got more popped, but still not a tone. Problem was ever time a kernel popped and flew out 7-10 unpopped kernel with it. So it would soon finish and you had maybe one small bucked filled, the popper had few kernels left, but the popcorn area was full of unpopped kernels. Now the true problem with the machine. You have to wait 5 minutes between batches or you will burn out the machine. So to make popcorn for a family of 4 took just over 30 minutes. Way to much effort. I thought about trying other brands of kernels, but the problem was not that they did not pop, but rather the fact so many flew out with every popped kernel. The other problem I found is you place a small included bucket on a shelf at the bottom and opened a trap door to fill. Maybe it was just me, but the kernels came out on each side and all over the floor. So complete mess to clean up. Then after filling one bucket, the popcorn in the machine did not slid down to fill the next bucket. So between each bucket you had to open the top and stick your hand down to move the popcorn to the trap door. So in conclusion I still move the look of the machine, but it just does not function correctly and given the price I can't justify keeping it. Nice try guys, but you need to work on this a bit more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from already broken I bought this popcorn before Christmas 2014 but already broken after few times using it. The kettle doesn't start. Too bad, I like this popcorn machine but didn't last long.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage Same as everyone else..doesn't pop all the kernels, spills when you use the trap door, lousy construction and it broke less than 8 months after purchase. In a way I can't say I'm surprised but wal-mart should be ashamed for selling something so horrible. Don't think you're getting a deal when you see it on sale like we did

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Glorified air popper I was hoping for movie theater style popcorn but it is just an air popper with a cool stand. It looks very cool and decorative but the popcorn is not movie theater popcorn. I would recommend it based on the price and the decorative feature but not for the popcorn taste. It is just regular air popped popcorn.
