“Popcorn maker for nothing”

Written on: 27/11/2012 by anika77 (2 reviews written)

I wanted to make fresh popcorn every day but not as artificial one as in microwave oven, so I decided to buy a popcorn maker instead of microwave oven. When I bought it I was more disappointed than happy. My popcorn maker is very noisy, runs incredibly hot what bothers me even more is that my popcorn is all over the kitchen instead in bowl! Other negative points are that if you want to use it twice in row you have to wait at least five minutes to get cold and you can't add other ingredients as… Read Full Review

“Should Not Be On The Market”

Written on: 31/05/2012

We are seriously considering placing this so called popcorn popper in the trash bin. The only bad part is we received it as a gift otherwise it would have made it there long ago. We have a clean up everytime we use it as it spews popcorn and kernels all over the counter and floor and when it is done popping, we have half a bowl of unpopped kernels. When I attempt to repop the unpopped kernels, the smoke alarm goes off. I think Rival should be stepping up and admitting this model should… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/05/2011

After dropping my old popcorn popper, I picked this one up because of the sleek design. What a mistake--looks pretty, but is useless! I'm tired of dodging the red-hot popcorn kernels that shoot out from the spout, and I'm tired of having to sweep the floor every time that I make popcorn! Even though this appliance is in perfect working order, I'm going out to buy a different brand. Guess this one goes into the garbage, as it's not even fit for a garage sale--I wouldn't feel right giving it… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/11/2010

I've been kvetching about this POS since we had the misfortune of buying it years ago, and just now thought I'd check out what other people say. My gripe is the unparalled ability to spew popped corn everywhere, but its even more sensational ability to jettison unpopped kernels with unRivaled efficiency. There can be no worse product of its kind… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/08/2010

We owned a Westbend hot air popcorn popper that was a similiar style to the Rival we purchased less than a month ago. We weren't thrilled with the new popper during the first and second use (different days) because it threw lots of kernels out before they were popped. The third time we used it, the popped corn jammed inside the cylinder and started burning from the bottom. The popcorn was so lodged in that we had to dig it out with a knife. Horrible product!!… Read Full Review

“This is the worst appliance (piece of junk) I have...”

Written on: 16/01/2010

This is the worst appliance (piece of junk) I have seen in years. This machine jams and burns popcorn about 1 minute after you plug it in/turn it on, and then it burns the popcorn and smokes up your kitchen, and then it overheats and won't come on again until after it cools down, which takes about 10 minutes. It lid also falls off very easy and then popcorns blows everywhere. We used it once and then threw it in the trash, as it's not even good to use as a space heater!… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/10/2009

This popcorn popper should not be on the market. Not only loud, pops only half the popcorn but also lets the hot kernels and popcorn fly all over. Re-added the un-popped corn and the top plastic cover melted ... a potential hazard… Read Full Review

I totally agree, the plastic cover on my popcorn popper is so distorted that the whole unit is destined for the garbage. It is a hazard.

Rival PP25 Popcorn Maker is nice looking and heats up fast. Only pops half the amount put in, shoots red hot unpopped kernels around the room and on the floor. Only half of what pops hits the bowl the rest is on the counter or floor… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/03/2008

-The depth of the cooker is not low enough causing way too many unpopped kernels pushed out by freshly popped kernels. I counted at least 10% unpopped!
-If you put too many kernels in, it may well burn out! Sells for $25 or so, but probably cost $1.00 to make… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/02/2008

Noisy. Chamber is not deep enough causing over half of the seeds to be spewed back out of the machine unpopped! No on off switch. This thing is useless! I am returning mine. I have owned a West Bend 'Poppery' air popper since 1981. For some reason I got it in my head that I needed a new one. That old West Bend has lost some of its 1500 watts of power, but it still blows away this wimpy 1200 watt hair dryer of a popper. Stay clear of this thing! I'll give it a one for styling as it looks pretty… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/02/2006 by unhookt (1 review written)

After months of scratching my nice calphalon saucepans which I was using for making popcorn, I decided to break down and buy yet another kitchen gadget. Convinced that popcorn should be inexpensive, I bought one of the lower priced models available at the local shop. Boy, what a mistake that was.

The Rival PP25 Popcorn maker is incredibly loud - almost as loud as a vacuum cleaner, and does a very poor job of thoroughly popping the corn kernels. Those that do pop escape from a front opening… Read Full Review

Smaddi's Response to unhookt's Review

Written on: 30/12/2006

I couldn't agree more with you. How the Rival PP25 Popcorn Maker ever got passed through safety standards, goodness only knows! It says 'fun for all the family' on the box, but there is no way children could be present in the room, as the unpopped kernels come flying out in all directions, and they are boiling hot too!
