Rated 5 out of 5Â by runs4fun This is perfect for a college dorm room!
My daughter just went away to college. She loves popcorn. At home we pop popcorn in a Stircrazy popper which is rather large & not practical for using in a dorm room. We don't like to use microwave bagged popcorn because of all the chemicals they use. When I came across this popper on line it caught my attention right away. It's perfect! My daughter said that it's a perfect size for the microwave. All but 3 kernals popped, and she wasn't using a gourmet brand. She popped it without using oil and clean up was a breeze. She said you just have to be careful taking it out of the microwave 'cause it gets hot. I just ordered another one for my other daughter who's away at grad school!

I wasn't sure how my kids would like "healthier" popcorn since they are used to eating the microwave popcorn bags which are loaded with some kind of disgusting fake butter. They, and I, absolutely loved the popcorn we made with this popper. It was light and airy, and with a little real butter drizzled on it tasted fantastic. We still have bags of microwave popcorn in the house, but they beg me to make popcorn with this instead! I feel better about giving them this popcorn as a snack instead of the bags. Plus, it is so much more economical than the bags. A small bottle of popcorn kernals lasts a long time!

This simple popcorn popper works very, very well. The bowl replaced a broken oil+stirrer popcorn maker, and produces far better results in half the time. The popcorn it makes is indeed light and fluffy, and you can use it with oil or without to get the flavor and texture you wish. It's use and cleanup are so mind-numbingly easy, I'm shocked more people haven't discovered it.
The only drawback is that it does leave a few too many unpopped kernels than I'd like (*this is why it is not rated 5-stars). To make sure we get a full batch each time, we add a few more kernels than recommended to account for the ones which will remain unpopped, and all is well!
Strongly recommended for any popcorn lover!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by linb Great popcorn maker
We are a huge popcorn family. We mostly used the hot air popper but I was looking for something for my son to use in college and found this. We tried it and LOVED it so much that I when he left and took his, I bought another one for our house. Popcorn pops in about 3 minutes in the microwave and then you can just eat it out of the bowl. My boys have even been eating it healthy (without any butter or salt!) I highly recommend this product. I was skeptical that it would work well but it does! Easy to store and easy to clean. Definitely a well designed product.
