He would come to a sit in front of the stove and when one of the escaping popcorns would rocket out of the air popper he would catch it in his mouth mid air. Like a hockey goalie protecting his net. He didn’t miss many.

I like the mushroom popcorn for the air popper.

I use the Salbree and it needs no oil at all to pop the corn kernels. The microwave is heating the water in the kernel which is what causes it to pop. Quarter cup of organic popcorn in the Salbree and place it in the microwave and 2.75 minutes later there is perfect popcorn that is uniformly cooked and never a burned piece.

I rinse the Salbree out with cold water and towel dry it and put it back in the drawer until the next time it is used. It takes up only a few inches of drawer height when it is collapsed. Using silicon for kitchenware and utensils is one of the best ideas in years.

Whirley Pop for around 20 bucks. Google popcorn and go to one of the online Amish popcorn places and try Baby White, or Lady Finger. Almost hulless and very tender. Also try Mushroom for bigger kernels, also black, Blue, Red, and Rainbow.

These silicon poppers produce surprisingly good texture popcorn with or without oil. I've never liked the texture of air poppers...

I have this machine and I used to have that problem. The issue with me was I was using too much popcorn oil. I would add it in between batches (same day use) every time and it definitely did not need it. It took some learning, but now it comes out perfect everytime.

Same here, except the oil. Use canola and just a pinch of salt.

No matter what you buy, clean it after use. My company has one, and I don't see it's been cleaned..

I am mostly a microwave popecorn person myself, BUT, any of the more commercial style that use that coconut oil and popcorn mix that comes prepackaged have ALWAYS been my favorite.

I have been wanting to try the premeasured popcorn kits for theater machines with my Whirly Pop. Smart and Final has Gold Medal and Jiffy Pop, but they are in boxes of 36. Anyone try these? I don’t want to spend the money and they find out they are nasty tasting.

I use the exact same popper (Contempo Design) and I use Mega Pop packets. I have been through 3 popcorn makers before this one and absolutely nothing compares to it. No seeds, amazing taste. Love the tradition.

We had a GN Lincoln Popper for a little over a year...until the inside of the popper above the kettle became corroded. We bought a Paragon Contempo 8 ounce popper and have been very pleased.

We used to pop the pre-measured packs, but I've tinkered with measuring my own popcorn, coconut oil, and Flavacol for the past two months. I finally got things dialed in and it's awfully good.
