Pros: This really is the best electric popcorn popper we have ever owned, and we have owned a lot over the decades. That's in part due to the mediocre quality of the poppers we had owned, nearly all of them from WestBend. We paid more for this Cuisinart (albeit not $109) and are pleased with its considerably higher quality in every respect.
First the parts are higher quality -- the bowl is much thicker than competitors' products. The bowl's lid is rock solid plastic, not flexible rubber. The heating base is probably the most solidly built and best designed we've ever seen. The design keeps it clean and free of residue from the popcorn oil -- the first electric popper we've ever seen to do that. The plate with the rotating arm that moves the popcorn around is solid and attaches firmly to the heating base. We appreciate that the unit has a on/off switch.
And it actually has a users guide that is understandable and illustrated. We anticipate that this well-built unit will last many more years than any of the others we have bought.
Cons: This unit, however, is not perfect (and how many products are perfect?). The power cord is ridiculously short, less than two feet. I suppose that might be a safety measure, but would another foot in length really hurt Cuisinart's bottom line that much? The instructions for using the plastic grips that solidly keep the popping plate in place on the hearing base are not quite a clear as they should be. I can understand why the first person to post here may have run into problems, but it takes some real force to break them off. I strongly suspect that 99% of users will quickly get the hang of using the grips without damaging them at all.
The used oil, however, does create a residue on the popping plate that just will not come off even in the dishwasher (yep, the popping plate and bowl are dishwasher safe -- the only thing that can't be placed in the dishwasher is the heating base (no surprise there).
Other Thoughts: Overall, this is a rock solid popcorn popper that should last for years.

Pros: Quick, clean popper. Pops almost every kernel, only a couple left unpopped. Also more quiet than many models we have previously used. Sturdy and well-balancer.
Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this product. We have tried several corn poppers in the last few years, never finding a satisfactory product. We had given up and went the microwave route with disappointing results. Obviously, we really enjoy this snack. This product is the absolute best we've ever used.
