Product Review: Whirley-Pop Stovetop Popcorn Popper

As the autumn nights cool off here in the Appalachians, my nighttime snacking thoughts turn to popcorn. I love cooking and can successfully tackle just about any kitchen project except stovetop popcorn. For some reason, I can never get it right -- the popcorn turns out burned or underpopped with lots of "old maids" left in the bottom of the pot. But no more! The Whirley-Pop Stovetop Popcorn Popper is my popping salvation. Thanks to it, I make great popcorn every time.

This neat, old-fashion popper has a clip-on lid with a stay-cool wooden handle. A turn crank on the handle spins the key element: the stainless steel stirring system that keeps the corn moving across the bottom of the pan, for even heat and oil distribution, ensuring the best popping results. The lid has steam vents, to help keep the popcorn dry and crisp.

The results are wonderful -- especially if you use organic oil and popcorn. Top with some organic melted butter and sea salt and you'll be ready to munch happily away while snuggle under a blanket watching videos with your sweetie or pets.

And kettle corn? Don't even get me started! The Whirley-Pop comes with a little recipe book for kettle corn and other wonderous treat that will have you popping all winter long.
