Whats the opinion regarding toivling a popcorn maker?
Anyone ever tried and did it work afterwards?

See here Rabbi Hieneman holds you dont need to if it will break afterwards but I am thinking my Rav will hold it will  need a teivilah.

Is a "do not immerse" warning good enough?

I once had a  new deep fryer and my rav told me to go to a jew to destroy by cutting to plug off and putting it back on. That was good enough to make it as if the a jew made it.
I wonder if he will tell me to do same thing now.

Does it have any siman that identifies it as kosher/coming from a kosher venue?

nope
Call the venue and ask them to confirm that they sent it out with Uber eats. Ask them if they can somehow identify it as coming from them (ask to speak to the mashgiach)
