What type of butter do you use with your hot butter dispenser or Presto Hot Topper or "baby bottle warmer"?



I have a cheap transparent plastic squeeze bottle (similar in size to diner ketchup bottles) I just simply put in 3 table spoons of Country Crock butter (which we already had in the fridge), then I put it in the microwave for 45 seconds until butter melted, then I tried to squeeze the butter on my fresh popcorn and it made it very soggy (kinda like soggy cereal in milk).


I am very happy with my 8 oz popper and Country Harvest popcorn packs, I am just trying to figure out an easy and cheap way to butter up my freshly-popped popcorn.


At this point I cannot afford to buy one of those $300 warm butter dispensers, but I wouldn't mind buying the same Presto Hot Topper if I can find one cheap. But I am still unsure what type of butter to use with a Hot Topper or just a bottle warmer. Obviously the cheap Country Crock butter made my popcorn wet, not buttery

Many specialty grocery stores carry clarified butter or ghee (Indian cuisine). I like the more nutty taste of ghee and can buy it much cheaper than the butter that is specially packaged for popcorn.

Thanks for the link Pam, they are kinda pricey but soggy popcorn is a terrible thing to taste, so I may have to spend $17 on butter, are there any cheaper alternatives?

So do I need to go to an Indian/Asian/Middle-eastern shops to find this "ghee" butter? is there anything similar at the local grocery store? (Walmart, Albertsons, Kroger's, King Soopers...etc)
