If what you want is air popped popcorn quickly produced - this is your machine.
For your information though - it recommnends that you only cook 3 portions in a 15 minute period so as to avoid overheating the machine - so if your family is more voracious than that for popcorn you will need a more industrial machine. However, for our family use it has been great.
Beautifully made little wooden yo-yo. In fact it ended up being so good that I kept it rather than it being the gift that I intended! It has been really useful as a demonstration aid to my children that you can have hours of fun and learning from a simply made toy. Excellent. Plus I got to relearn how to "walk the dog" and all those tricks of my youth.
