I've had this Popper for at least 10 years and absolutely love it. I've used it on the stove top and over the camp fire. Everyone raves over the popcorn. I'm buying a new one just because nothing lasts forever and I don't want to take a chance on not finding another one if the one I have breaks down.
This popcorn popper is great. It's easy to use and makes the best popcorn. The unit is very easy to clean, which is a big plus. I've had some of the electric popcorn poppers, but I don't think they get the oil hot enough, because the popcorn comes out kind of tough and chewy. The popcorn that comes out of the Whirly-Pop is fresh and tender. It's even good the next day, if you store it in an air tight container. I personally use coconut oil, as that's what the movie theaters use and I think it adds flavor to the popped corn.
Has not burned my popcorn . Tighten the lid to the pan so when you lift it will not pop off !
I purchased this as a replacement for my daughter's pot, which was exactly like this pot. I broke her's when she was here for a visit and the breakage is the reason for the four stars. She loves making popcorn using this pot and it does work well. My only complaint is the gear mechanism on the top of the pot (that enables you to turn the handle to keep the popcorn moving inside the pot) is made of some kind of material (a type of heavy plastic/not metal) that doesn't hold up well to heat from the stove. I don't know how quickly the gear begins to disintegrate - it seems to "dry-out" and then crack and break -- her pot was quite old and had been given to her used? So buyer be aware of this potential when making your purchase. The price is certainly reasonable enough to replace this item if needed every four or five years! PS This time I purchased the red one....very cute!!! Handle and knobs are made out of a wood and all other features work well!
I popped some corn in this sweet baby!!! It was SO good. Me and the wifey put a bag under our coats and went into the movies and saved about $20 from having to buy movie popcorn!! Yeah, this product is totally awesome!! We LOVE it!!!
Works great! Easy to use, easy to clean. Doesn't burn the popcorn and most all kernels pop. Nothing negative to say about this item. Saves my good pots from getting burned by my daughter!
Love this popper. Have had one for years. Easy, fun and safe to turn the crank, no burned popcorn or burned fingers! We like to use regular vegetable oil and regular popcorn rather than the prepackaged stuff that comes in the box, though. After popping, dump into a big bowl, add a little melted butter and salt and you are ready for movie night! Bought this particular one as a gift for our son who couldn't do without in his own kitchen. Delivery was fast. Arrived sooner than expected.
We had finally gotten tired of microwave popcorn, tough, not completely popped , etc. I found the whirley pop and remembered it from years ago. I have a ceramic top stove and finding the right temperature took almost 2 minutes!! it's a trial and error depending on your stove but you can pretty much gauge it. It feels cheap, yes, it's aluminum, but it does what it is designed to do and the results are great.
Do not hesitate to buy this product. It may look 'gimmicky' but it works like a charm and the popcorn could not be tastier. Nice and crisp, never scorches if you follow directions. The lid is awesome, as you just lift pot off the burner and pour directly into your waiting bowl (the lid is split so it opens). It also cleans up very easily. It is a good value for a quality product as well! I have had mine for 2 years now.
Love this popper. Easy to use and works very well!!
This popcorn popper is the best.. It is very easy to use and the popcorn comes out light and fluffy..Every kernel was popped.. I like the fact that it looks like an old time popcorn popper..Great buy for the money!
I was looking for an alternative way to pop corn. This corn popper pretty well fit the bill. Compared to the electric poppers, this was a pretty good price. It works. It does what it is designed to do. Stirs the popcorn while it is popping. This is pretty lightweight aluminum, so you have to apply a little downward pressure to keep it on the stove burner while you turn the crank. Can be easily cleaned. Easy to take lid off and put back on. Doesn't take a "rocket scientist" to figure out how to take it apart and put it back together. The 25 year warranty is a plus. I'm not crazy about the popcorn kits. I don't think I'd trust putting all the contents in at one time. I split it up for 2 poppings. Only used about half for each popping.
I ordered this for my mother and stepfather for Christmas, they love it. She told me she had always wanted one. My mother says it makes the best popcorn she has ever had. Now that says something because she's 78 years young.
I wanted a stove top popcorn popper like my Mom used to have when I was growing up. This is as close as I could find and so I ordered it. It makes great popcorn and is no fuss. Thanks for making my memory come alive.
I read all the pros and cons of this popcorn popper, took a chance and am glad I did.
shipping was fast, packing was good and I did not have any flaws with the gears or hinges.
Very simple to use and I don't know how I have come this far without having this in the kitchen.
the whole family wants popcorn now!
Purchased online and shipping was quick. I bought 2 for Christmas presents and was really impressed with the construction for the price.! I have read other reviews and they sound very good so I think for the price I did great!
I love this popper, it is so easy to use, quick clean up, and every kernel always pops. We love popcorn and it is so easy to make and so fast...Love it! I bought three more to give as gifts!
I just received this popper and used it for the first time. I got so tired of the air popped microwave pop corn and longed for the old fashioned kind. this popper worked great. every kernel popped and after adding only a touch of butter and salt it was delicious. would recommend this popper.
What i expected
This makes the best tasting popcorn I have ever had. Prep is easy and cleanup a snap.
