Turn on the heater and let heat for 2-3 minutes. The Elite EPM 250 popcorn maker uses a 2.5 oz kettle. This is for 1/3 cup of uncooked kernels. Add kernels with a tablespoon of popcorn oil (available in markets) and a 1/3 teaspoon of what's called "Flavacol". It's a seasoning that they use in movie theaters to add flavor, saltiness and color. It's available online (ebay) or at Smart and Final. Use this combo and you can't go wrong. For cleaning, let kettle cool, the add 1/2 cup water. Turn on kettle and let boil for 2-3 minutes. Then empty it out.

unless you have the instruction manual, only trial-and-error will tell you. Start with 2 tablespoons of oil and 1/2 cup of corn kernals. If there is oil left after the corn is popped, decrease the amount of oil by a teaspoon. If the popped corn is burned, increase the oil by a teaspoon. As for the corn, if the pot is full when the popping is done, 1/2 cup is the right amount. If the popped corn over flows, 1/2 cup is too much. Vary the oil and corn until you get it right. Good luck! I love popcorn, so I wish you the best.
If you are using the Cuisinart pop corn poppper, don't use olive oil. Use vegetable oil. Two teaspoons is enough with 1/3 cup of premium kernels. That is it. Turn on the machine and wait til it stops popping. I LOVE my new pop corn popper. I will not do the hot air one again. I always had kernels flying all over my kitchen and popped popcorn everywhere, The Cuisinart popper is the best....
I had the same problem when I firs bought mine. I followed the instructions as to the proportion of corn to oil. Forget the book! I found that with this machine I had to use three times the oil that was caled for in the instructions to get all of the corn to pop. Better yet, we started purchasing the premade kits with the oil, popcorn and salt. Since changing to both of these systems we have enjoyed GREAT ppcorn!
