You need to buy one of these, my friend. It make popcorn that's better than movie theater popcorn and you can play around with using different oils to give your popcorn different flavors.

Yeah, I don't use the microwave stuff at home either, I use a Stir Crazy, it drips a little butter on gradually through out the process so no popcorn is sitting in a pool of goo.

The "theater style" microwave popcorn is just a regular bag of corn with 500% more butter-flavored oil added.

The Stir Crazy pops some pretty tasty corn.

One of these bad boys

I just shake the whole thing every minute or so to get the beans out from under the rotating rod. It gives me a pretty consistent roast, and i can watch for desired color and listen for cracks.

The fact that you say you cannot rent a machine is crazy. The cost of all those single microwave packs and the MASSIVE amout of time it would take to pop them all for a "Metric ton of popcorn" would just never outweigh its costs.

A machine would be quick and painless also kernals are cheap.


get this thing and get going.

BUt seriously for one event not renting a machine is just wasting time and money

I season popcorn in all kinds of ways. From cajun to curry to bacon to sweet and hot. Anything that chips would taste good flavored as popcorn will also. My normal popcorn is made in a self stiring popper and seasoned with olive oil, cumin, curry, cinnamon and adobo (adobo is a seasoning salt with garlic and all kinds of good stuff in it).

Bought this for the gf for valentine's day. Works like a charm and it's really cool to watch as well.

My husband loves popcorn. possibly more than he loves me

We have this one. It's countertop and just uses a little bit of oil for popping.

u/hutacars · 2 pointsr/financialindependence

I used to use this until it broke, but then got the air popper and tbh, I prefer it. Less preparation, less clean up, more compact, and faster too.

Nowadays I rarely eat popcorn, but I've reverted to the microwave when I do. I like shitty artery-clogging artificial butter and the even easier cleanup that comes from not needing to clean anything afterwards. It's bad.

u/emdash8212 · 2 pointsr/Cooking

I loooove this thing. You do have to stop it when it's done or it eventually burns (after 30 seconds or a minute), but because you can SEE THE POPCORN POPPING that's not a big deal.

Seriously, it's like a UFO that makes popcorn for you.

u/Karpe__Diem · 2 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

I have used a brown lunch bag method in the microwave. Pour some kernels in, sprinkle some oil on them, fold twice and staple twice (they won't do any harm in the microwave). Microwave them until you don't hear a couple seconds between pops. Turns out good.

My favorite way is using the best gift we got for our wedding (almost 7 years ago)..popcorn maker

It works awesome, except for the butter melter thing on top, that blows.

It looks like you want model 82306... I've started seeing more of model 82505 which is NOT the correct one.

Stop with the amature shit. Get a Stir Crazy, get some quality popcorn and some good oil. Then after you pop it but some real butter on it.

You'll find that good popcorn has almost no hulls and you almost never get popcorn stuck in your teeth.

You'll also find microwave popcorn and popcorn from movie theaters almost inedible in comparison once you become accustomed to the good stuff.

u/Who_GNU · -3 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

How are you popping your popcorn? The only reason I've ever seen popcorn burn is because there wasn't enough oil in the pan, or it was a bag of microwave popcorn with a susceptor.

If you are buying popcorn in a microwave bag, you are doing it wrong. Get something for use with (good), or without (better), a microwave. (I haven't used either of those specific products, but I use ones like them, and the principal is the same, so it is hard to go wrong.) They will pay for themselves in no time, because bulk popcorn and oil is really cheap, and making popcorn properly takes hardly any more time than microwaving a bag.

Stay away from air poppers, unless you want really dry popcorn. If you want to be healthy, cook it with a flavorful oil (e.g cocoanut or olive) and don't add butter. If the oil is flavorful, you won't need the butter to make it taste good.

For the best traditional popcorn though, cook it in cocoanut oil, add clarified butter, and salt it with finely ground salt, often referred to as flour salt.
