I’m a sucker for kitchen gadgets. What can I say?? I’ve also been trying to a little more conscious about waste as in how much garbage I produce…so when I saw this little microwave popcorn popper I decided to give it a try.
I have LONG been a fan of popcorn. A HUGE fan. My Dad was a popcorn eater. I remember growing up, Mom had a big pan that she put on the burner of the stove and rocked it as the popcorn popped.
I remember days before the microwave, Dad would want buttered popcorn so Dad would put a slab on butter on the end of the butter knife, dip it in the popcorn and then eat the popcorn that stuck to the end of the butter knife. That way every single piece he ate had butter on it.
Later mom got an air popper and dad had popcorn even more often. I remember once Dad broke a tooth from a popcorn seed that didn’t pop but still, he ate lots of popcorn.
I take after my Dad and LOVE popcorn. I have an air popper but it’s such a pain to dig out of the cupboard. It makes so much popcorn and frankly, I don’t make it often as it’s all a bit of a pain.
Some of you might say microwave popcorn from the bag…I’ve tried it and have yet to find a brand I really like and it’s so easy to burn..or not get done.
So into my life comes the Tasty Microwave Popcorn Popper. It was one of those “too good to be true” type things. So…I tried it.
Using it was so easy. Simply put popcorn in the lid to the line that you see, then dump the seeds into the bottom container..put a slab of butter in the top if you want butter….
Microwave it for 3ish minutes.
It came out like this….
…and the popcorn was fabulous!! I loved it and the butter was perfect too. There was enough salt in the butter that I didn’t even add butter. The butter was “popped into the popcorn” so my hands didn’t feel sticky or slimy from butter. That was awesome too.
This is a Pioneer Woman Pasta bowl and it’s about the perfect amount….sure I could eat more, but I really shouldn’t- so this, is just what I need.
You can find the Tasty Microwave Popcorn Popper HERE on Amazon. This one is a 1.5 quart one. I did see that they also have a 3 quart-sized one that you can find HERE. I am adding it to my Amazon store in the kitchen section should you ever want to find it back and the link to the store is at the top of the page under the banner where it says, “Jo Recommends”.
I think they would be a great gift for a college student or a person who is single like me. Like I said, I’m a sucker for kitchen gadgets….
