How It's Made: Popcorn Poppers
Our poppers are among the best-selling items in our microwave line, and it's no wonder they're so pop-ular--they work like a charm, yet require no oil! Our poppers are made using a propriety material that is BPA and Melamine-free. The raw material resembles white clay, and is soft to the touch. It is carefully cut and weighed by hand before it gets molded. Next, it is placed into a compression molding machine, which combines hydraulic pressure with heat to trigger a curing process. The material 'bakes' and cures inside of the press for just a minute at around 450 degrees F. This material is what differentiates our poppers from other less expensive ones on the market---ours are actually oven safe to 400 degrees F forever once they're cured, so they never melt. Once the curing process has completed, the press opens, and the popper comes out. Each popper goes through a hand-finishing process by one of our skilled craftspeople to smooth and trim the edges before being paired up with a clear lid.
Nordic Ware was founded in 1946 by a determined wife, Dotty, and her resourceful husband Dave, newly back from the second world war. With only $500 in their pockets, a few good ideas and a desire to create a business of their own, a humble kitchenware company was launched from the basement of their home in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In the beginning, Nordic Ware’s product line was only a handful of items, all of which were specialty Scandinavian ethnic cookware products. But times have changed! 70 years later with a good measure of perseverance added, Nordic Ware is still proudly manufacturing the vast majority of its products in Minneapolis. We’re proud to say that we’re still family-owned and operated, with three generations involved in our business, and each year we add innovative items to our expansive kitchenware line.
70 Years of Innovation
With wife Dotty at his side, Dave Dalquist returned from WWII to start a business. From humble beginnings in a basement, Nordic Ware has become an intentionally distributed kitchenware brand with a variety of product lines, hundreds of products and millions of fans!
Still a family owned and operated in the US, the company is honored to occupy a place in the new Food History exhibit at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. Last fall, Nordic Ware was chosen for the prestigious 2015 Minnesota Manufacturing Award for Sustainability, which firms we work hard to minimize our environmental footprint. Our company moves into 2016 poised for the future, with last year setting an all-time record in sales volume and production efficiency.
Ideal for popping delicious popcorn with or without oil. Serve directly from bowl. Quick and easy popcorn, from your microwave. Dishwasher & microwave safe. Make light and fluffy popcorn in about 4 minutes. Just place 1/2-cup of popcorn kernels in the bottom bowl and cover with the lid. When the popcorn has finished popping, invert the bottom bowl and lid, and you instantly have a container for your freshly popped corn. 12 cup capacity. Proudly made in the USA by Nordic Ware.
Made of gemstone, an unbreakable, chip-proof cookware material, the Nordic Ware corn popper efficiently transmits microwave energy directly to the popcorn kernels, popping them quickly without oil. It produces the results of a hot-air popper without an additional appliance. This oil-free method is refreshing when compared to bagged corn, because you don't have to contend with grease, salt, and artificial flavoring unless you dress the corn yourself after cooking. However, take care to monitor the progress of corn during the first use. The manufacturer lists a three-to-five-minute cook time for 1/2 cup of unpopped kernels, but as microwave ovens vary, it could take considerably less time to pop. And overcooked corn burns fast using this method. Luckily, the base and lid are designed not to warp or melt, so burned kernels won't damage them. Use this versatile popper for cooking, storing, and serving popcorn and other snacks. The popper base is also ovenproof. --Carol Gnojewski

Anyway... my daughter was so excited to use it that I decided to test it, so I gave it a good wash and tried it.
I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to use with great results.
1/4 cup of corn, about 1 tablespoon of butter and in just 4 minutes we had almost perfect popcorn with very few kernels unpopped.
The popper gets VERY HOT, so you have to be careful when taking it out of the microwave.
We made two batches and after the second one I noticed that the bowl had some burn marks at the bottom, which was a disappointment...
Also the lid wasn't in place, it had come out a little, like it didn't hold well. So not sure if is better to return to Amazon because I was supposed to get a brand new item not one that already shows so much wear...
The guy in the video went step by step using this bowl to make perfect popcorn! I use it almost everyday day. The bowl gets hot so I just use a pot holder when taking out of microwave. It is easy to clean ( I only wash it by hand)) . Using theater salt and coconut oil is a must to get great theater-style popcorn. YUM!
I recently found this here on Amazon so I bought it for my parents. Since they had mine popcorn they had been asking for one. I couldn't find this brand so I had bought the other brands that are similar to this and NO Way works like this one. The other competitors use a filter which means more money and easy to misplace.
It there were 10 stars I would give it a 10 across the board! It's been kinda like my secret to good popcorn for so many years. For someone that is not a big believer in the microwave I am but bit embarrassed to say it really is the best tasting maker. Top it with some white cheese popcorn seasoning and you will be dancing!!!
I'm planning on buying another one for my place even though I have the old bowl from years ago, but it wouldn't hurt to have a backup and a lib.
