Question about Presto 04821 Orville Redenbacher's Popcorn Maker

1 Answer

Orville Redenbacher's Gourmet Hot Air Popper by Presto #04821

This is a new machine.  After placing 1/2 cup popcorn (which came right out of the freezer) into the chute and plugging in the machine, small chunks of butter were placed in the plastic cup on top.  Popcorn started shooting all over the counter and floor.  Any advise would be appreciated. Should I take the machine back?

The problem is the frozen corn. Let it come to room temperature.

Can't find directions. How much popcorn do I put in, and how much time do I set on my microwave?


1/3 cup popcorn, 1-2 Tbs. oil (optional). The time depends on how powerful your microwave oven is and whether you are using a Power Concentrator, but it will be between 2 and 5 minutes (closer to 2 minutes for a 1200 Watt oven; closer to 5 minutes for a 650 Watt oven)).

You can find the instruction manual on the Presto website.

Popcorn popper 50030178 I found this old popper like my nanny used to use. But I don't know how much popcorn or oil to use can you help me. I have the measuring cup lid all the parts with it.


What type of popper is it? The 50030178 model isn't one I'm familiar with.

For most of the small air poppers, such as the Presto Air poppers, fill the measuring cup lid with popcorn so that the popcorn is level with the top of the cup. Add this amount of popcorn to the popper. On those units, there is a fill line inside the popping chamber. Do not fill past the line. For these air poppers, if you want to have butter or margarine on the popcorn, add 3 tablespoons of the extra to the lid after you replace it on the popper.

For the Hamilton Beach Hot Oil Poppers, the manual for the 73300 is available here: http://www.hamiltonbeach.com/use-and-care/use-and-care.php . Fill in the type of device and then the model. The amount of oil and popcorn will depend on how much you want to make. For a single serving, you need 2 T (tablespoons) of kernels and 1 - 1 1/2 t (teaspoon) of oil. For enough popcorn for a family, you should use 1/2 cup of kernels and 1T of oil. http://useandcares.hamiltonbeach.com/files/840190701.pdf has a full chart of the amounts on page 6.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the brand of popper and I'll check for a specific chart for that unit.

I have a presto hot air corn popper and can't remember how to use it, particularly hot much corn to put into the popper. The model number is 01/pni. Could you please help me as soon as possible, as I...


Does your popper have a butter melting cup at the top? (The one we had years ago did.) Remove that cup from the popper and fill it with the unpopped kernels. (Fill loosely to level with the rim of the cup or less. Do not pack the kernels into the cup or overfill.) Then pour the kernels into the poppiing chamber. There should also be a fill line inside the popping chamber that indicates the maximum amount of popcorn to put in the chamber. Then put the measuring cup/butter melter back on the top of the popper.

The manual for the current Presto Hot Air Popper is available as a PDF from the Presto site. The list of all their popcorn makers is here: http://www.gopresto.com/products/products_search.php?search_value=37&operation=Search&search_type=category . To find the manual click on the hot air popper and scroll down, the user's guide is listed under the parts/accessories available for sale. The current one looks identical to the one that my family had ~20 years ago.

I hope this helps.

Gave as a gift at Christmas and it was broken and I can't find a replacement at Kohl's, place of purchase.


Thank you. But my problem is that I gave it as a gift and now the people went to the store for a replacement and they have none. They just received a credit but who carries the popper.......none that I've been able to find. I'm going to call Kohl's but expect no solution.

Not popping the corn


Here is the link to the user manual for your machine; http://www.gopresto.com/downloads/instructions/04821.pdf If the kernels are not popping, then the heating element that heats the air is likely faulty and would need replacing - Check page 4 of the manual for service info Hope this helps :)
