Our popper came with one packet of "theater popcorn" with corn, oil and seasoning so we used that and got very crisp popcorn. Next time we used our own popcorn and regular cooking oil. The popcorn was more "rubbery" as another reviewer stated. Because we had such great luck the first time around, I knew it probably wasn't the lack of vents causing this.
I tried coconut oil in place of cooking oil (it's tasteless and odorless if you've never used it before) and we had great popcorn - without a single "old maid!"
We love how fast this is and how easy the popper is to clean up afterward. Great addition to our camping gear!
The telescopic handle does not feel very secure, but there is an aluminum tab holding it in place. The clean-up isn't too difficult, unless you burn the oil. The theater popcorn that comes with it didn't taste very good...very much like theater popcorn. But, I just poured < 1/2 cup popcorn (you can also add just 3 kernels of corn, wait for them to pop, then add the rest of the corn) and about 1/4 cup of corn oil (soy oil causes it to be rubbery) with a dash of Lawry's right into the bucket. While you shake the popper over the fire, it mixes perfectly and evenly. No need for butter with the healthier oil.
My popcorn isn't as crisp as air popped, but it is sooooo much tastier. It does not get "rubbery" (I think there are enough vents, but I usually hold the lid open too, after most of the popcorn has popped). The bucket is also a bowl, just remove the clipped-on top piece, very convenient. Sometimes my arm gets tired while shaking it over a fire or on a burner, it takes 3-5 minutes, depending upon the heat.
I am very happy with this product, even though the construction seems a little flimsy.
I am going to try kettle corn soon...1/4 cup corn oil, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup corn.
Update: After a year of use, the flimsy construction of the handle makes using the popper over a fire risky, the whole kettle might end up in the fire. But, I tend to use it over an electric burner now, if i was to use it over the fire, I would tape or secure the handle (it clips on to the kettle) in some way (sometimes the handle just falls off, the metal clip is bent out of shape). I now downgraded it to 4 stars.
We think this popcorn popper is very well designed. It's easy to use and easy to clean, and we love the collapsible handle.
Best of all, the popcorn it makes is absolutely delicious! The popped kernels are big and crisp and just yummy! Of course, anything cooked over a campfire seems to taste better, but this popper really does make great popcorn!
Some tips, from our experience: We made the mistake of adding a little more than the recommended amount of popcorn kernels, in hopes of getting more popcorn in the batch. When we did that, the steam of the popping corn gets trapped as the popper fills with popped corn. The batch came out a bit soggy and tough. When we stick with the recommended amount of popcorn kernels (or even slightly less), the popped corn is delightfully crisp. Now we pop two batches, if we have a group, rather than try to get by with one big batch.
Also, the very best oil to use for popping corn is coconut oil. Just be sure it's "refined", rather than "unrefined". The unrefined will make your popcorn taste like coconut! (Maybe some would like that, but we prefer to taste the popcorn.) For some reason, coconut oil makes the corn pop better and come out crispier.
Remember to shake the popper constantly, so the kernels don't burn. (Kids love to help!) The popper is very forgiving, but if you hold the popper too high, it will pop too slow and you'll end up with lots of unpopped kernels. If you hold the popper too low over the fire, the kernels will burn, rather than pop, and some of the already-popped corn will burn, too.Read more ›
