(Product) Microwave Popcorn Popper Back-To-Basics by

I’ve been on a mission for the past 6 months to get off of my microwave popcorn in a bag addiction. Goodness only knows what kind of chemicals are in there. I bought an air popper, but the popcorn tastes like it’s made out of styrofoam in those things. Not good. I tried the plain bag trip, but I only managed to scorch the bag and the kernels never all popped.

Now, a confession. I’m a bit of a impulse shopper. If I see something that I decide I want, I buy it. So, you mix in my failed popcorn and me being bored one night on Amazon and… I bought some weird thing to pop popcorn in the mircowave. It came in the mail, Tom raised his eyebrow at me and shrugged.

I washed it and let it sit for a few days because I just knew this thing wasn’t going to work. I was wrong.

This thing ROCKS. I’ve made popcorn in it several times. I prefer my popcorn plain, so I can then add spray butter and my own seasonings. I don’t like a lot of butter. ANYWAY… it leaves very few kernels unpopped and the popcorn is fresh. I have NO idea why this thing works. I don’t want to know. It just does.

If you are a popcorn person that wants to get rid of the expensive chemical filled nuke bags, buy this. Trust me.

The only bad thing I’ve found is that the bowl is REALLY hot when it comes out. It says you can serve it in there, but I wouldn’t risk the burns. I transfer it to a big bowl. Note: It can pop up to 1/3 of a cup of corn at a time.

    We had something like that when I was younger. You put the kernals in and put the bowl in the microwave. It rocked. I’ll have to look into this one. I love popcorn but, like you, hate the crap in the microbags. Hmm…the new mini-roommate likes popcorn.
