West Bend 82505 Stir Crazy Electric Hot Oil Popcorn Popper Machine with Stirring Rod Offers Large Lid for Serving Bowl and Convenient Storage, 6-Quart, Red

West Bend has been a leader in developing electric kitchen appliances since being founded in West Bend, Wisconsin in 1911. Providing unmatched performance, quality and value to consumers has always been at the heart of everything we do. Popcorn is a delicious and healthy way to enjoy snack time. You can eat it plain for a healthier snack or indulge with butter and seasonings. It can be dressed up or dressed down for any occasion. It is the perfect addition to any dinner party, backyard BBQ or winter’s night in front of the fire. The Stir Crazy No.82505, 6-Quart Popcorn Popper by West Bend is America’s favorite popcorn popper. It measures 13″ W x 10″ L x 10″ H and is constructed of durable and BPA free plastic housing. The Stir Crazy uses a triple-layer heating plate which increases performance and insulates the body of the popper to fully pop up to 6.75-quarts of popcorn in about 4 minutes. Features of the Stir Crazy popcorn popper include the clear cover which not only allows you to see the popcorn pop, but also transforms into a family-sized serving bowl when popping is complete. Atop the cover is a butter well- butter placed in the butter well will melt from the heat of the popper and drizzle onto the popcorn as it pops. When popping has finished, simply snap the butter lid over the butter well, flip the machine upside down and the cover is now a serving bowl for your snack. The easy-to-read ON/OFF button of the Stir Crazy activates the heating surface and rotation of the stirring rods. The stirring rods keep the corn moving to pop all of the kernels. The compact surface and steep side walls of the heating plate keep kernels centered and yield greater popping efficiency. When finished, the non-stick heating surface is easy to clean and the dual-purpose cover and serving bowl is top-rack dishwasher safe. The permanently attached cord wraps underneath the base and the base nests neatly inside the cover making for a compact, no-tangle storage when not in use.

Note: Please unplug the machine and flip it over when it’s done popping the popcorn

Best Popcorn maker – use quality oil and salt Best Popcorn Unit Ever invented.This unit heats up quickly and finishes popping in about 4 minutes.If this is your first time popping with oil and you want real movie theater tasting popcorn, please read the following.Oil, not any oil can be used, regular vegetable oil will leave a bad flavor.Salt, not all salts are the same. Regular table salt is too thick and has a bitter flavor compared to the right popcorn salt.This is what I use:Coconut Popcorn Popping…

This is the one. Just know that it’s hard to clean. The only reason that I feel like this doesn’t get a solid five stars is because it is soooo hard to clean. I’ll be honest here, we make popcorn almost nightly and this thing is amazing. I love that the top acts as a bowl, but we honestly never use that feature. I’ll break it down into some pros and cons, so you can make an informed decision, but really, I can’t imagine a better popper. Mess comes with the territory.Pros:Built in bowlOil popper, not airFast!

Automatic popping, great popcorn I used the old West Bend popper for years, but like this new one better for several reasons. First of all it pops the same amount as the older model but has a smaller footprint. It seems to operate just the same as the older model but I find it’s easier to turn over when popping is complete. I do transfer the popcorn to another bowl for eating since the steam that dots the popping lid/bowl would seem to make some popped pieces less crisp.I like that this model has an on off…
