My buddy Daniel B. was talking about microwave popcorn recently.
I love love love popcorn. I don’t have a microwave now though, and I think microwave popcorn is pretty gross. For awhile, when the apartment I lived in came with a microwave, I was using the bag technique. Before that — and after — I’d always used a pot and some oil.
But when BK and I moved in to our current place, he suggested that the pot-and-oil method was too cumbersome. I started researching air poppers but he was intent upon getting the Whirley-Pop. I normally try to avoid owning many single-use appliances/devices, (except for my rice cooker,) but I went along with him.
Well color me impressed. I LOVE LOVE LOVE our Whirley Pop. It’s easy to use, the popcorn tastes great and when I use it, I can sing a little song that goes “Whirley Pop, Whirley Pop, oooh ooh Whirley Pop” to the tune of the “Lollipop” song made famous by the Chordettes. I think a catchy theme song is important when it comes to my kitchen gadgetry.
