Question about Presto 04821 Orville Redenbacher's Popcorn Maker

1 Answer

Need a replacement hood/lid for my Presto hot air popcorn popper model 0481002. I have already contacted Presto and they don't have it. It's a 1980 number. For sentimental purposes. "Regift" for my huband for our 25 th anniversary. We watched lots of movies because we were so "poor" back in the day. Thx

SOURCE: Bought Presto Poplite New Used Once Never Worked Again ?

Welcome to FixYa, If my solution meets your approval, I'd appreciate a good ranking. Regarding the popper, I read the owner's manual for this model and it is a very simple machine. I had thought that there might me some type of interlock or switch that might be at fault for the malfunction but they don't. It seems that the unit is just filled with popcorn, plugged in and within two or three minutes you should have popcorn.

  • If you haven't already, try plugging the unit into another outlet.
  • If the unit is in an area with a G.F.I. outlet (these are rectangular and have a reset switch that can pop and make the outlet dead) check the outlet and if needed reset it by pushing the red button back in.
The good news is that Presto is a very old company with a great reputation for customer service. Their warranty is 2 years, but if you explain the situation and the unit is more than two years old, they may repair it for nothing. You would be responsible for the shipping. In fact, their warranty says to return it and just indicate the date purchased. They don't even require a receipt. They can be contacted at:

Service Department weekdays 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM (Central Time) at 1-800-877-0441

Finally, just in case you don't have the user's manual any longer, it can be viewed and saved at the following link:

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.

WAIT! Do not add any oil or butter. I don't know what kind of machine you have, but only POPCORN goes inside the Popcornnow. I have an old one that melts butter on the top cover, although I don't recommend that. I recommend butter in the microwave. Repeat: DO NOT ADD OIL where the popcorn goes or you will set a fire.

Can I use oil in hot air popcorn popper to better taste


No, oil and butter should not be used in the popcorn maker. You can melt some butter or buy a flavored oil to drizzle on top once the popcorn is done and in a bowl. But nothing should go inside the maker except popcorn kernels.

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.
