My first Stir Crazy Deluxe did not work at all. West Bend customer service then sent me the wrong model (Kettle Krazy) as a replacement. I finally received a second Stir Crazy Deluxe after more calls (missing one of the bumpers on the feet and with an on/off switch that failed to light up when on). The second unit ran with wild swings in temperature and did not pop the corn properly. West Bend sent me a third unit that they took out of the box and tested before shipping. This unit did have all of the parts and appeared to work as designed. It did not make satisfactory popcorn.
This popper uses a halogen heating element, similar to those used on certain solid-surface cooktops. A halogen element heats up instantly, but the output level cannot be adjusted, so it must be cycled on and off to maintain a specific temperature. I've never had much luck keeping a consistent temperature on halogen cooktops and this popper is no exception.
My old Stir Crazy, with a standard electric heating element, takes a little while to get to temperature, but then almost all of the corn pops at once. The new Stir Crazy Deluxe begins to pop the corn and then the heating element cycles off. Although the latest unit I've received does pop the corn more-or-less continuously, the kernels are not fully popped. I feel this is because they are being overheated at a variable temperature. I am also left with an excessive number of unpopped kernels and a significant amount of burned kernels, burned popcorn, and burned bits of chaff.Read more ›
Overall, very pleased and would absolutely recommend.
The earlier iterations of the Stir Crazy were, to be fair, a pain in the dupah to clean. And no matter how well you cleaned, eventually the turn screw would gum up with overcooked oil, and the dome would crack. Maybe that was the signal to get a new one, I don't know.
Anyway, the Stir Crazy 2 solves these issues. The dome is much stouter, and the cooking surface comes out for easy cleaning. Takes maybe five minutes and you're ready to put it up till next time. The cord is longer and permanently attached, both great additions. Oh, and mine is PURPLE. So it looks good when it's sitting on the counter.
So it all works esoterically. But how does it POP? Well, perfectly. Even my 19 year old son had to come in to watch it...this is one of the wonderful things about the Stir Crazy...it's fun to watch! Still!
Taste being what it is, I prefer to use yellow corn, and I opt for Orville Reddenbacher. A good Indiana product. My first batch, I had exactly 2 unpopped kernels. 2. Oh, and don't bother using the butter well on top of the dome. Never works. Just melt it in the microwave while the corn's popping and drizzle it on afterward.
So far as longevity goes, well, be fair...I have no idea. But its predecessors lasted 8-10 years each, and with its easier cleaning I imagine this one may last longer. But after its first use, this confirmed popcorn fanatic is convinced that this machine is the best thing to happen to popcorn since melted butter. Outstanding.

Lousy product! I use Redenbachers gourmet popcorn, follow the instructions, and it comes out VERY chewy. The butter well is worthless. Sorry I purchased the product.Published 28 days ago by Hazel Hird
