OPERATIONVonHaus 2013261 Retro Popcorn Maker Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 4

  • Position the BASE UNIT on a stable, level, heat-resistant work surface.
  • Attach the TOP COVER/CHUTE to the BASE UNIT, ensuring it is securely in place.
  • Add 30g (1.5oz) of kernels (supplied) to the MEASURING CAP/LID.
    NOTE: The Popcorn Maker is designed to pop one MEASURING CAP/LID of kernels per session and should never be operated with more (or less) than this amount. If more popcorn is required, allow the appliance to cool for several minutes before using again.
  • Pour the kernels into the POPPING CHAMBER. CAUTION: Do not add any other ingredients,
    such as oil, butter, margarine, salt or sugar, to the popcorn at this point as damage will occur within the BASE UNIT.
  • Sit the MEASURING CAP/LID onto the TOP COVER/CHUTE and place a large bowl or container (not supplied) beneath the CHUTE before connecting the Popcorn Maker to a mains socket.
  • Press the ON/OFF SWITCH to the ‘ON’ position to begin the popcorn-making process.
    CAUTION: Never remove the MEASURING CAP/LID or TOP COVER while the Popcorn Maker is in operation.
    CAUTION: Do not touch the Popcorn Maker whilst in operation as surfaces will become hot.
  • Once the correct temperature has been reached, the popcorn will begin popping and emerging through the CHUTE. After the popcorn making process is complete, switch off the unit using the ON/OFF SWITCH and unplug from the mains. Pour the popcorn into the SERVING BOXES and enjoy!IMPORTANT: Allow the unit to cool for at least 10 minutes before removing any un-popped corn and beginning another batch.


  • For a buttery batch of popcorn, melt a small amount of butter in a pan or microwavable bowl. Once melted, simply drizzle and enjoy!
  • Another tasty way to enjoy your popcorn is to drizzle it with caramel, melted chocolate or, for a savoury option, sprinkle with cheese and chives.
  • Once the pack of kernels has been opened, store in an air-tight container in a cool, dry area to keep them fresh.


CAUTION: Before carrying out cleaning or maintenance, disconnect the appliance from the mains and allow to cool.

  • Remove the MEASURING CAP/LID and TOP COVER/CHUTE from the BASE UNIT and wash in warm, soapy water. Dry removable components thoroughly before storing and next use.
  • Wipe the BASE UNIT using a slightly damp cloth and mild detergent if necessary.
    CAUTION: Avoid using any abrasive cleaning materials to clean the BASE UNIT as this may damage the surface.
  • To remove any dust or small pieces of kernels from the POPPING CHAMBER, use a dry and soft cloth to gently wipe the interior.
    WARNING! Do not immerse the BASE UNIT in water or any other liquid to clean the POPPING CHAMBER as this will severely damage the product and cause injury to the user.









•     The Popcorn Maker is designed to make one batch of popcorn at a time. Continuous or excessive use will cause the appliance

to overheat and the thermal cut-out will be activated. To avoid this, always allow the appliance to cool sufficiently between uses.






•     Too many kernels have been added to the POPPING CHAMBER causing some not to be cooked and dispensed. Use fewer kernels for

your next batch – always use 1 MEASURING CAP/LID full as recommended.
