WAS AWESOME, THEN PAINT ON INSIDE STARTED CHIPPING OFF
on April 8, 2012
The first thing I thought when I opened the box to this popcorn popper was the black coating on it was done very poor. There were paint runs all over it, but when I took it out and used it I was very surprised at how well it worked. It is my new favorite camping toy now. I put in 1/4 cup of oil and 1/4 cup of popcorn and just held it over the fire. It all popped very fast and was really good. I got some popcorn seasoning at the store to take with us to flavor the popcorn. A little less oil next time, but still really good. My wife has used it twice over our gas stove and loved it too. I can't wait to take this on a father and son camp out with all of our friends. I know everyone is going to be happy I brought this. I wish I would have know about these earlier so I could have taken it on all camping trips. I have also attached a picture.
UPDATE: 23/MAY/2012: I took this camping for the second on the father and sons camp out and this time the black paint coating on the inside started chipping off. I don't want to be eating paint chips. I am going to replace this one with a $20 dollar one at Dicks sporting goods. If I have a problem with that one I can just take it back to Dicks. I haven't gotten it yet, but when I looked at it, it felt heavier and a little more sturdy. It cost a few bucks more, but I hope that means it is better quality. I still like the idea of popping popcorn when camping, but not with this pan. I am not going to use it anymore. Save $15 bucks and get a better one for a little more. I added more pictures of my popcorn and paint popper.
