A few years ago we got a popcorn popper as a Christmas gift. I decided to put it to use. I don’t know why I have not used this awesome piece of kitchenware sooner. Maybe it was because I thought it would take to long to make popcorn with it, because we are all about having things now. I was shocked at how quick it was to make a huge amount of popcorn. It only took about 5 minutes. It takes that long to make about half as much with bagged microwave popcorn, and there were no burnt kernels. So it cost less, take about the same amount of time as microwave popcorn, pops all the kernels without burning them, and it’s fun to watch the popcorn burst out of the top when it’s done.
