We love popcorn. Not the chemically-enhanced microwave version, but real, cooked on the stove popcorn. With butter. Not butter sprinkles or any other butter substitute, but real, melted butter. And salt. Can't forget the salt. My best friend Karen knows this about me, and years ago, she bought me the Whirley Pop Popcorn Popper. This is probably the one kitchen "appliance" we use the most. We usually use Orville Redenbacher's original kernal popcorn, but every now and then we get some gourmet kernels at a farm stand or a specialty food shop. Whatever corn we use, the Whirley Pop ensures that virtually every kernel comes out crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The stirring mechanism prevents sticking and burning, and it's easy to clean. Best of all, we have fresh, hot popcorn in about three minutes. Yes, we love popcorn. But we love our Whirley Popper even more.
