Wow, wow, wow! Used the Gold Medal Lil' Maxx for seven 8-oz batches last night. It is amazing how much better it does at popping corn compared to the Great Northern machine it replaced! Wow!

1) Every popped kernel received some coating often low coconut oil/Flavocal. With the GN machine, the last half of the popped kernels came out completely white. And, yes, the amount of coconut oil and Flavocal was adjust appropriate to the size of the kettle. The Gold Medal machine simply allowed the popped kernels to receive a more even distribution of the oil!

2) Same brand of popcorn (same bag, in fact), the Gold Medal machine popped kernels were noticably more plump (larger) and more tender & crisp.

3) VERY few old maids! I mean, maybe 20-30 old maids total out of seven batches! The Great Northern machine left 15-20 old maids per batch!

4) Faster! The Gold Medal kettle heats faster and pops faster! The difference was quite noticeable!

I love this new machine!! Short video:
