Microwave Popcorn Popper
from Phoenix, AZ
Comments about Microwave Popcorn Popper:
We love microwave popcorn but didn't think the store microwave popcorn was very healthy. I bought this popper move than a year ago and I love it. I buy popcorn at the store and I can add butter or olive oil. I add the oil after it pops.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best Popper Ever
By Teresa Black
from Orlando, FL
About Me Avid Cook
I have owned this popper before but lost track of it when I moved. I've looked everywhere, department stores, online, etc., trying to find anotherone because this is the best microwave popcorn popper I have ever owned. Its' simplesty, ease of operation, and efficiency in melting butter over the popcorn is down right mythical. It is an excellent microwave popcorn popper.
Tastes better than air pop machines.

About Me Casual Cook
The three legs makes the popper unstable so I always put it inside another bowl when it is not in the microwave. I have two of these crack on the bottom so far. The timing of popping is very difficult to figure out. The popping will take anywhere from 3 to 6 1/2 minutes. I just have to babysit the cooking and when I smell burning turn it off. There will still be many old maids. So why do I bother buying this popper when there are so many problems? It tastes better than the popcorn popped in the air poppers that you sit on the counter. I have tried the glass containers and the popcorn ends up being stuck together in a ball that I have to use a knife to get it out. I don't buy the popcorn in the paper bags because of all the chemicals being used. So this popper is the lesser of all the evils.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
Popcorn tastes great.
This is the third popper I bought. The first two cracked on the bottom but I like the way the popcorn tastes. I don't want to use the prepared bags of popcorn because of the added chemicals. I don't like air popped because it tastes funny. So I keep buying this model. It is hard to time the popcorn so I set the microwave for 6 minutes & listen for the pops to stop. Sometimes it takes as little as 3 minutes and other times all the way to 6 minutes. It only has 3 legs so tips over easily. I set this container inside another bowl when done popping so it is more stable. So until a better popper is available I will just keep buying this one.

Tasty Healthy popcorn
from Worcester, MA
Best for individual serving. Additional servings can be made quickly. Must use lower wattage to get corn popped without burning. I have older model Sharp Carousel that is only 600 watts, so it does take 3+ minutes. I usually only make about 3 cups of popped corn, not a full bowl. I have come to enjoy plain popcorn every night!
Can't make it work
from New Braunfels, TX
Could not make a proper batch of popcorn without burning--tried all of the hints--costs more to ship it back--heading towards Goodwill.
much smaller than appearance in catalog
Picture in catalog made item appear larger than it actually was.

I have bought this item for relatives and friends. It says not to use dry, but I do. I make popcorn with no oil or butter, and flavor it with parmesan or other seasonings. Cooks 1/4 cup of dry popping corn in 3 & 1/2 minutes in 700watt microwave.

WASTE OF MONEY
By Bklyn Cowgirl
from Ringwood, NJ
This corn popper was a total waste of money. It takes much longer than the stated 2-4 1/2 minutes to pop and still leaves plenty of "old maids". Example: I put less than 1/4 cup in and set micro for 3 min. Then for another 1 1/4 min and then again for another 1 1/4 min. It kept popping each time but I was still left with over 1 tablespoon of unpopped kernals after 5 1/2 minutes. I didn't want to leave it in any longer for fear that it would melt. Save your money, use a large pot on top of the stove.
