I think you need to do a search within this forum. There have been many reviews on this. You ask 20 people and you could get 20 different answers. Size and price range makes a difference too.


Good luck

It depends on your needs, and items of importance.


Some have longer warranties than others. Some have Aluminum kettles, while others have nickel plated steel. Some have all glass, while others use a type of plastic. Some offer heated trays (recommended by almost everyone), and some smaller 4 oz. units dont.


For me, when I finally get one, it will be a Cretors Nite Club. Why, because I think it will look the best for my style of home theater. It offers tinted and etched glass, a nickel plated steel kettle, and a heated tray. Although, I think the warranty is shorter. But for me it is looks.


If you go with any of the big boys like Cretors, Gold Medal, Paragon, Star Manufacturing, I dont think you will go wrong. Just find the price point, look and features that you like.


For now, I am using an 8 qt. Stir Crazy with 6 oz prepacks, and it works fantastic. And it was only around $40. Still make popcorn like the theater, and my wife loves it.


Best of luck.

How do you order from them? Do they ship to Canada? I'd like to try their nacho cheese dip, there's none in stores. Do you have to buy in large quantities?


Thanks
