    I hated air-popped popcorn and microwave made me nervous, especially after reading stories about lung damage from popcorn fumes. This works just about as fast as the micro and will, in the long run, save me money. And the popcorn tastes great.

    Mine is called Whirleypop Popcorn Popper. I bought mine at Aldi for $16.95. You can get it on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Wabash-Valley-Farms-25008-Whirley-Pop/dp/B00004SU35/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1350053901&sr=8-3&keywords=popcorn+maker

    Comes with a 25 year warranty which is pretty darn amazing - I may have to leave it to someone in my will!

    That looks like fun to use! I read a few reviews and the one that stands out to me really stresses not to use high heat. I'm one of those that cooks everything on high, unless I've messed up the recipe by doing that in the past. Then I'll cook on the appropriate temperature. icon_lol.gif

    I wish my dad were still alive. He would LOVE this gadgie. I grew up with his "famous" oil-popped on the stove method and there was just nothing better. After his stroke and was unable to make popcorn himself anymore, mom bought an air-popper. I've inherited that and have been using it for the past 20 years. I really only use it once or maybe twice a year. Usually just for making caramel corn during the holidays or for camping.
    I miss the oil-popped flavor and texture though. I might have to add this to my list. icon_smile.gif

    I think I'm using a tsp or 1 1/2 tsp of oil per batch - the thing is absolutely full, about 1/2 cup kernels. The popcorn does not feel greasy but tastes so much better than the air popped and I control the amount of salt and am using much less than the microwave bags have. I have used it every day for over a week, Love it. Even if we use it just once a week, I still consider it a good buy for us.

    It sure is good buy and think making it this way would be a lot more fun when making with the grandkids. The price is right too.

    DH popped up (pardon the pun) out of bed last night while we were watching tv and said he's craving popcorn.
    We don't have any microwave packs on hand so I used the air popper and clarified some butter for he and DD to snack on. I have to say, after this thread and remembering how good oil-popped is... what a let down the air-popped was! Since I usually only eat it with caramel on it, it's probably not a fair judgement, but it just tasted like it blew out of the household heater vent instead of being freshly popped. icon_confused.gif
    I told DH about this popper and it's definitely at the top of his Christmas list.
    I've been instructed to send gramma wish lists for all 4 of us, so I'm gonna put this one at the top of DH's. icon_smile.gif

    You know I've always wondered why Movie popcorn is soooo much better than what I make in the micro at home - but this is it!

    I used to use the Whirley Popper, I liked it pretty good. You have to learn what heat level to use, but once you do it makes great popcorn. I've been using the West Bend Stir Crazy for the last 5 or 6 years, that's my all time favorite. I use 1 tablespoon of oil to 1/2 cup of popping corn, plug it in and in a few minutes I have a load of nicely popped corn and I didn't have to stand at the stove stirring it. I don't like microwave popcorn, that stuff tends to be loaded with fat and salt.

    Probably the Butter Flavored Popcorn Oil. I seen this sitting on the shelf at the restaurant supply store. My first thought was "Why would anyone want Butter Flavored Oil?".

    In the box they have a packet of popcorn, oil and salt - the oil is a mix of things, I do remember that coconut oil was one of the ingredients, but it was also yellow in color - consistency was like ghee kept in a cool pantry - not really liquid.. The packet was labeled Movie Theatre popcorn or something like that.

    My husband came with one of these and I love it! My oldest asked for one the first Christmas after he moved out. And he got one.
