Pop Corn Machine

I did not even realize these were on the market until our son and his family got us one for Christmas. Then I found out, his in-laws had gotten him one for Christmas.  A few days later, in the book I was reading, the heroine got one for Christmas:) It must have been the gift of choice this year and I the only person on the planet to not have heard of them:)
What about you? Have you seen them? Do you have one? Do you like it?

  1. I have seen and heard of them, but don't have one, and I must confess that I don't really like popcorn! Hugs, Valerie

    1. Oh my goodness. Not like popcorn? And you like chocolate and coffee. How did this happen? Grin.

  2. Count me as ignorant. And we don't eat anything like enough popcorn to make it worth while. Sweet popcorn? Never. Savoury? Once every five years or so.

  3. We've thought about getting one, but it would have to come as an air popper because we just don't do that much oil.

    1. I don't know if they make them as air poppers or not. We use coconut oil. It's pretty tasty.

  4. I have seen these, but they are very expensive, and I don't eat popcorn anyway.

    1. Another non popcorn eater. I was surprised at the number of folks that don't like popcorn.
      I think they've got the poppers in a wide range of prices.

  5. I'm not a big popcorn eater but it looks like fun (especially at a party). I was totally ignorant of their existence. Thanks for educating me! :)

      This one makes different amounts. The boy and family got me prepackaged popcorn for my bday that work out well for two.

  6. Hi, Sandra!

    Just thought I'd pop over. :)

    Every few weeks a popcorn machine is offered as a prize on The Price Is Right. Most contestants vastly underestimate the price which, as I recall, is in the $1,000 to $1,200 range.

    Happy Tuesday, dear friend Sandra!

    1. Yikes. That must be what Anne Marie meant by very expensive. They have them reasonably priced on Amazon.
      And a happy Tuesday to you, Shady.
      Not cheap, but cheap compared to 1K:)

    1. I didn't either till we got ours. They're like little miniatures of what you see in the theater.

  9. We have a giant one in the church that we break out for special events. It's ancient, I'm amazed it still works....

  11. A few bars I go to have these for the kiddos to have something to munch on. I'm not a fan of popcorn though. The smell makes me nauseated and they kernels get stuck in my teeth.

    1. I love the smell of popcorn. You are so right about those darn kernels. I wear them in my teeth after I leave the theater.

    1. Bummer about popcorn not liking you:(
      I'm good unless I add a bunch of butter. Then it doesn't like me either.

  15. I have seen these and wondered about the popcorn. May need to put it on my wish list!

  16. My husband has been talking about getting one of those very things for our bonus room, which we bought a big wraparound couch for late last year. We're turning it into a movie room.

    1. I think that's so cool that you are developing a movie room. The popper would fit in perfectly.

  17. I've seen them, but I have a different kind of popcorn maker. I haven't eaten popcorn in a few years because I ate too much of it with too much butter. Now I'm hungry for popcorn.

    Love,

  19. Whatever happened to Jiffy pop? We microwave ours...

  20. LOL Yes! They are pretty rad. Though, nowadays, I just put my kernels in a pot with oil, and pop them over the stove, throwing in a dash of sea salt for flavor. YUM!

  21. Hmmm, not into popcorn these days, but you enjoy it, girl. :)
