Nostalgia Electrics Retro Series Popcorn Maker Review

I have such a weakness for unique and fun kitchen items and appliances, especially when they are like none other! I was beyond excited when given the chance to work with Nostalgia Electrics, the world’s leading company that blends family fun and home entertaining at an affordable cost!

Nostalgia Electrics sells popcorn makers, cotton candy makers, hot dog makers, ice shavers, margarita blenders, kegerators and more. My family and I love popcorn, it’s something we eat very often. There is nothing better that a big bowl of freshly popped popcorn shared while watching a movie on a cold winter evening. Nostalgia Electrics sells some of the neatest popcorn makers to suit any style and size needs.

We had the pleasure of trying the Retro Series Kettle Popcorn Maker. This retro-style kettle popcorn unit makes hot, fresh and delicious popcorn, just like in the movie theaters. It features a large, stainless steel kettle with a built-in stirring system and pops up to 8 cups of popcorn per batch. It includes a measuring spoon for oil and a measuring cup for popcorn kernels, so every batch pops perfectly.

This popcorn maker has such a cool, nostalgic design and it is super easy to use. Out of the box, you just place the kettle portion of the popcorn maker inside and attach the handle from the outside, wipe the machine down and you are ready to go. Making popcorn is so simple and quick just allow the kettle to warm by running for about 2 minutes and shut the unit off. Using the provided oil and popping corn measuring cups, place oil and corn into the kettle and turn the unit on. In about 2-3 minutes you will have hot, fresh and fluffy popcorn! You will use the kettle handle to make sure the popcorn does not stick inside the kettle and to pour out the popped kernels.

I really like the amount of popcorn that this popcorn maker makes, the 8 cups it perfect for our family. If we want more it is so easy to quickly pop more. Once popped we all had fun adding different seasonings to taste. Clean up of the unit is also very easy. Just remove remaining popcorn and wipe clean. I did have to pick out a couple kernels that got stuck under the stirring arm but it was quick and easy. Plus, it’s affordable at just $79.00 at retailers like Walmart and Meijer.

My overall impression of the Retro Series Kettle Popcorn Maker from Nostalgia Electrics is fantastic!! I feel that it is a fun and affordable way to create a healthy snack for movie time, parties or just because. It is a stylish and fun addition to any decor with the retro feel.
