The new popcorn kettle is at least 1/3 bigger than the pot that we have been popping corn in so the first time we used it my wife used apx. the same amount of popcorn we had been using. Well it raised the lid 3 inches. The kernels were twice the size. Start with the amount they recommend and adjust from there then all is as advertized. We are very happy with popcorn kettle.
