I recently had the chance to take a tour of the Gold Medal Products Co. plant, right here in Cincinnati. You can read the full review of my visit here. I also received one of their newest popcorn machines, the 2660GT Deluxe 60 Special. What makes it so special you ask? Well, just look at it, it looks so retro!
We are big popcorn lovers around here so when the kids came home from school and saw this, they were ecstatic! When I took the tour visit, I was shown how to put it together and get it going. Well, my husband brought it in and decided to make a batch before I could show him how it worked. He was able to figure it out pretty quickly. Turn it on, let it warm up which takes about 5 minutes, and pour the pouch of oil and kernels into the metal popper and let it do its thing!
One of the new features of this machine is that it has an auto shut-off. The auto shut-off feature works after 15 minutes of idle time, if you forget to turn it off, it will then automatically shut off. This is a great feature, especially if you have this in a movie room where you might be distracted. The kids liked watching the delicious popcorn overflow from the popper. I like that there are hardly any un-popped kernels left when it is finished popping too. One 6 oz. pouch produces 6 oz. of buttered popcorn and it only takes about 5 minutes for it to pop. That’s a lotta popcorn! When you are finished making your hot fresh popcorn, clean-up is pretty easy. The bottom of the maker has holes so the un-popped kernels or small bits can fall through. Then you just remove the tray that is underneath and empty. The parts come out easily to wipe down for the next time.
This popper actually comes in two parts, the glass top part, and the cart. If you do not have space for the whole thing, you can just purchase the top part to set on a counter or table. I can say that we LOVE this popcorn machine, not only for movie night but when the kids have friends over, entertaining and anything we have that craving!
