Great Popcorn every time...,
This review is from: Presto 04830 PowerPop Microwave Multi-Popper, Black (Kitchen)
My family bought me this popcorn popper as a joke about a year ago because I am a popcorn addict. At various times I have used microwave popcorn packages, air poppers, and stovetop popping in a heavy pan.
With this popper, I get fabulous popcorn that tastes better than any of the other methods I have previously used. I did have to try a couple of variations to get my favorite flavor -
I use about 1 tsp of olive oil - just a tiny bit.
I now use only Orville Redenbacher popcorn now. I tried some boy scout popcorn, some white popcorn and some store brand popcorn. All of these types poppped with small puffs ,tasted terrible and had a poor yield. When I used the Orville Redenbacher though, I got puffy, yummy popcorn and 95% or more of the kernels popped.
I bought 10 packages of the concentrators directly from Presto so that I wouldn't run out. When I use the oil, I only get about 3-5 pops per concentrator and usually by the last one, it looks like I should change it.
I add popcorn salt after popping instead of in the bowl during popping.
This is a great item that has made popcorn a healthy, yummy snack for my family several times per week. I highly recommend it.
