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 :)

How much popcorn do I use in the buttermatic 2. Model number 88204it didn't have a manual with it


A single serving is about 1.4 cup of unpopped kernels. Start with that and see how it goes. You can extrapolate the capacity from the amount of space remaining in the machine when the popping is done.

Nostalgia Popcorn Maker CCP399 - when the popcorn is popped, unpopped kernels come out with the popped kernels. How can I stop this from happening? Thanks!


You cannot. All poppers of that style will a some "fall out". The better commercial machines have very little as the kettles are deeper, but you cannot eliminate it. The unpopped kernels are not reusable.

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.

Lost the instructions for a nordic ware microwave corn popper


1. Pour up to 1/3 cup of popcorn kernels in the base of the Popcorn Popper.
2. The use of oil is optional, but not necessary. If desired, drizzle a small amount of vegetable oil over the unpopped kernels, then stir to coat the kernels.
3. Place cover on the base bowl. Cook on High in the microwave for approximately 3-5 minutes (microwave ovens vary tremendously!), or until popping slows down. Allow Popcorn Popper to cool before repeated use. Do not try to re-pop unpopped kernels.
4. Hand washing is recommended, but occasional washing in the top rack of a dishwasher is acceptable for the bowl, but not the lid.
5. If popcorn burns easily or does not pop well, try placing a shallow bowl, dish or plate upside down on the microwave turntable to raise the popcorn popper up a bit.

I don't have a mechanical/electrical or other problem all I am trying to accomplish is finding a drawer that was accidently thrown out when some people assisting in cleaning up a school's fall festival dumped the left over popcorn into the trash bag and was not aware that the small drawer that catches left over unpopped kernals fell into the trash bag. The trash was picked up and now I am out a drawer that is needed to operate this machine in thecorrect manner. I just needed to know if you knew where I could find such a part. Thanks you

I have the same problem, but overcame it with a reusable K-cup. They are available online and at some national chain stores for about $15.00. It's a not as convenient as K-cups, but better than throwing out a $150 coffee maker.

Your drain pump is definitely blocked/jammed. Remove drum to pump hose from pump, after unplugging the machine from the wall socket, and clear any obstruction within the hose and/or pump chamber. Also clean out front filter.
