Exclusive Fresh popcorn beats anything you can buy at the store, and now lovers of this simple snack can quickly and easily make their own at home. Better yet, you can control how much butter or margarine you want on it—the silicone lid allows butter to melt through on to the corn as it’s popping.

Pop healthier corn using no oil. No more messy bags or added chemicals, and cheaper, too! Use approximately 2 oz. of your favorite popcorn kernels. Press the silicone lid onto the top of the popper. Place desired amount of butter or margarine on the top of the lid. Put the popper into the microwave on high for approximately 2 to 3 minutes. One oz. of corn kernels = approximately 1 qt. of popped popcorn.

For microwave use only. Not for use on stovetop. Caution: Glass will get hot during cooking, so please use a potholder or oven mitt to remove from microwave. Dishwasher safe.

Yummy
This product is easy, and quick and clean. You can add what you like from the top and it melts onto the corn as it is being popped. I know it is clean without any additives and without the danger of the popper bags.
I love it

a good product
It may take a couple of tries to get the results you want, but it works very well. People who complain about the learning curve seem a bit naive. It's not a miracle machine. Use common sense and you'll be very pleased with the results

Mini-Popcron Popper
We bought the smaller of these two poppers. How I wish we had bought the larger one! The smaller one doesn't really make more than a small serving for one person which may be just fine for folks who do not want more popcorn than about 1 1/2 cups or 2 cups.

We usually like about four cups or even more, so the larger popper would have been a better choice for us.

We do not use butter, margarine or oil. That may be why we have had to experiment quite a bit on timing of the popcorn. We burned one whole batch not realizing how fast it can burn. Be very careful and stay with the popper to make sure the popcorn is not turning black

Failed Attempt at New Product
This popper simply doesn't work very well.

For popcorn to pop, you need to achieve a certain temperature. Ideally, reaching a temperature where all the kernels will pop during a very short period of time to avoid burning the already popped popcorn. This is why oil is useful/necessary in popping popcorn -- it distributes the heat easily and allows the batch to pop rapidly.

Unfortunately, this popper relies on the vagaries of microwave heating with which everyone is aware - some parts of the heated object are hot, and others remain unheated depending on their position. As a result, this popper burns a lot of popcorn while leaving other kernels unpopped, and rendering the batch inedible. My first batch without any butter actually smoked up my kitchen.

Even with butter added for flavor and to act as an oil as in a conventional popper, the butter tends to burn before the popcorn will pop, and the popping is still delayed long enough that early popping kernels are burned and the batch ruined.

This is also a difficult item to clean, and frankly much more work than a traditional popcorn popper.

This is an attractive idea for a product, but it is non-functional and a waste of money.

Try one of the thinly skinned crank/stirred popcorn poppers for real success. They use a minimum of oil and pop their kernels very rapidly resulting in a uniform and tasty popcorn

"Healthier popcorn, less solid waste."
I like the idea that I'm not creating lots of waste using store bought microwave popcorn bags. Plus no added unpronouncable ingredients!!

We bought the larger of the two poppers yesterday and have made several batches already and are honing our popcorn making skills..Getting the time figured out is the biggest thing and I think there are a lot of variables: microwave power, freshness of kernels, amount of time, quantity of popcorn used, etc.

The taste of plain popcorn with just a little butter is amazing!! So much better than microwave popcorn!!

The only downside is the size of the opening, but it's possible that it needs to be small for a reason that I don't know about.

Just make sure you don't buy one that's too big for your microwave. We got ours home and it BARELY fits. I really can't put butter in the top or it will make a huge mess on the ceiling.. But no problem. I just heat up a little butter afterwards and pour it on.

All in all we love it. Didn't give it five stars because of the small opening. Other than that, it's an ingenious idea!!

Micro-wave popper
I love this popper. Don't put too much popcorn in the container because they won't all get popped. If you want a large amount you will need to make a couple batches. But, this is a great alternative to stove popping, or air popping

VERY BAD design
Hated it. Four awful batches of what should be delicious popcorn that either burned or didn't pop. Back to our reliable paper lunch bag in microwave. Soon to be returned. VERY DISAPPOINTING!

Has anyone mastered this?
Ok- I love the idea of popcorn without the chemicals. Don't love the old school crank type on the stove top. (too hard to clean) I saw this option as opposed to an air popper and thought I'd give it a try. Actually purchased for a Christmas gift ( for our 5yr old that LOVES popcorn) my ratio of burned to perfect popped corn is pitiful! I've followed the directions... And you either have half unpopped OR a whole batch that's burned! After reading the previous post I may try putting a tiny bit of oil to the base to ensure even popping...? Suggestions?

My Fave Holiday Gift
Okay, I love popcorn. LOVE.
I saw this and knew it'd be perfect for me! I've made popcorn at least 10x since Christmas and the other night...MY PERFECT BATCH! I use 1/4 cup of kernels, spread around my margarine around the entire lid with a little bit of height. Then I carve out a little dallop in the middle for me to add my Tapatio sauce. Then I put it in the microwave for 3 min. It takes that long because I have a lot of butter/Tapatio. I could probably use another 5 seconds but the 3 min with about 15 unpopped kernels is better than chancing it with some overcooked kernels.
I'll be buying the smaller size to keep at work! Love this item

Healthier than bag popcorn
Last time we purchased and popped bag popcorn we both had a miserable night due to our stomach's not feeling well. I used our new popper and melted some BUTTER on the top and added a little salt. Was the best popcorn we had enjoyed in years and NO stomach problems. Much healthier and better for us. Will never buy bagged popcorn again. This was so easy, why buy that bag full of chemicals

Somewhat disappointed
I have used this twice since I purchased it. The first time with no oil, it popped fine. The second time added oil, many kernels did not pop. The thing I don't care for is the narrow opening. You are forced to pour the popcorn into another bowl to eat it because the glass is so hot and the opening is so narrow - if there was a wide opening you could still put your hand in there to get the popcorn. So 2 things to wash rather than 1. Will be going back to the paper bags

disappointed
I am disappointed in this product. Cooking times did not work. It took several attempts to get to the right time but burned or underpopped alot of popcorn to get to the right cooking time. I ended up with 4 minutes on one batch and 4 minutes 20 seconds on another. 2oz is only enough for one person so plan on popping several times if its not just for you.

Great Product
I purchased the large size and it is great. I followed the instructions with some modifications based on the reviews and get perfect popcorn every time - just a few unpopped kernels.
