Product Description

The Pit Popper was designed by popcorn scientists to eliminate the dreaded burnt knuckle phenomenon that occurs when using an ordinary stovetop popper over an open fire. Heavy fireproof mits have long been the standard method for protection. Oven mitts are a nasty biosphere for things that crawl. They also greatly hamper the smooth stroking technique needed for popcorn cooking perfection. The long handle has long been the preferred solution, but a long handles is a pain in the pack for transporting. The introduction of the Pit Popper extension handle has revolutionized the open fire popcorn experience. Now one person can continually pop pan after pan of delicious popcorn with no danger of burnt knuckles. Only one word truly describes the newfangled 2-foot extended arm popper--Awesome. The Pit Popper's innovative design allow moisture to escape during the popping process so your popcorn will be hot, crunchy, and mouth-watering. Our innovative Cool Tube handle with the comfort grip keeps your hands away from the heat/fire and ensures you will get perfect popcorn from your campfire, fireplace, or backyard grill.Features:Make 4 Quarts of Popcorn in Just MinutesInnovative Cool Tube Handle extends to 2-feet to keep you safe and away from the fire.Quick Clip lid makes for easy clean-up.

I love my popcorn pit popper.
Michelle
I'm not sure if this is something I did, a defect in this one popper, but I suggest you be extremely careful with this popper.
J. Peters
The fix, of course, would be what I suggested above - to have the handle attach to the pan and not the lid.

We got this popcorn popper and were so excited to try it out. My son was shaking it and when I turned my head he dropped it or something and a bunch of the popcorn landed in the fire. I figured he just messed up and emptied what little was left in the pan and the lid fell off. He had dumped most of the popcorn so I did the next batch myself. I was gently shaking it and it just didn't feel right. When I went to put the popped corn into the bowl, the lid fell off again. I'm not sure if this is something I did, a defect in this one popper, but I suggest you be extremely careful with this popper.
The popped corn was great and I will send this one back and get a replacement. I'm really hoping it's a defect in this one popper and the next one will be fine.

This product has much potential to be a 5 star product. The quality of the product material, at this price point, is very good - far better than others that I compared it to. E.g. I bought a unit at Walmart for about the same price, which was a piece of junk (1 star at best).

Out of the box, this unit is problematic for the following reasons:
1) The connecting point between the handle and the lid is way too loose. In fact, this caused my first batch of popcorn to fall into the fire due to the connecting point coming free and the pan falling out. Yes, I had it connected properly. My recommendation to the manufacturer would be to connect the handle to the pan rather than the lid of the pan. But even with it attached to the lid, it could still use a more precise attachment. There is just way too much slop in the fitting and the little spring steel release actually acts as a ramp for the end of the handle to slip up on and come loose. I had to modify that little spring steel part to get my handle to stay on without falling off while gently shaking it in the fire while popping corn.

2) The lid is a nice idea but it does not secure tight enough onto the pan to hold the weight under it while shaking (not too hard of course) over a flame. Mine came off while popping a batch, and I was being very careful. I had to modify all the spring clips to get them to hold, but even then, they are still not nearly as tight as they should be. The fix, of course, would be what I suggested above - to have the handle attach to the pan and not the lid. It doesn't really make sense to have the lid support the weight of the pan, oil, and popping corn below it when the pan itself could be used to attach a handle.

Besides these frustrating things, I really love this concept.

I have been having a lot of fun with this popcorn popper! I first had to learn the proper way of using it, however!

Make sure the lid is very secure before you begin popping your corn. This is where I found pliers to be necessary. The top pops off sometimes! I suppose my shaking method wasn't perfect at first, but I also believe the metal clips are not very strong.

When working the popper over fire, try to be FAST! Also be smooth with your motions. You'll be SLIDING the popper! SLIDE it over and over, non-stop, even if you don't yet hear popping. Move in the direction of the handle: back and forth, back and forth! If you shake left to right and right to left you're going to make a big funny mess! Even funnier if you bounce it up and down!

Make sure to use enough oil. It's probably going to be more than you think you need. I started with just 2 tablespoons of oil, and burned the heck out of those kernels! That left a bumpy surface for the next batches! Just put enough in the first time and you'll be golden. Coat the bottom of the popper with canola or sunflower, or even a blend marketed for popcorn. You probably need about 1/4 cup. Don't go overboard, either, of course.

Once you start popping have containers ready to collect it! If you're doing it right, popcorn shoold start to overflow the popper when you've popped 2/3 to 3/4 of the kernels. It'll be lots of fun and you'll make a tasty nutritious snack!

One more thing: the manufactures give a description of the size of the fire you need to make proper popcorn with their popper. I'm pretty sure the directions are meant to be a joke because they call for a firepit something like 3ft wide and suggest flames 4ft high! Lol!

Got the Popcorn Pit Popper to take camping for the grandkids to make popcorn. Only thing they know how to do is microwave it. It works just fine easy for a 11 year old to use.

I am sooooo disappointed in this product. It is the most idiotic design ever! The top pops off EASILY and the entire base containing your popcorn falls into the fire. I would like to think mine is just defective, but I have seen several other people with the same complaint on the reviews. I wish I wouldn't have bought this. The consumer shouldn't have to invent a way to make the product work or "customize" it in any way to get it to function as it should, but I guess that's what I'll be doing in an attempt to use this thing. Boo :-(
