The Whirley Pop Stovetop Popcorn Popper is our favorite way to make popcorn. We make popcorn in our home at least two to three times per week. Our youngest daughter, who is 14, is the designated popcorn maker and she’s been mixing it up since she was about 10 years old. Even our youngest son, who is seven, is learning how to use the Whirley Pop Popcorn popper. It really is that easy. So, why do we like the Whirley Pop so much? Isn’t microwave popcorn faster? Actually, a batch of Whirley popcorn takes about 3 minutes on our gas stove, so, microwave popcorn isn’t faster. Plus, with the recent health concerns over the ingredients in microwave popcorn, we feel much better adding our own oil and popcorn kernels and knowing that is all we are eating. And, as flavor goes, there really is no comparison. I think microwave popcorn is usually too salty and too oily. Popcorn from the Whirley Pop comes out light and fluffy. Just salt and butter to taste and you are ready to go.
Here are some tips for using the Whirley Pop Stovetop Popcorn Popper: Season your new Whirley Pop according to manufacturers directions (really easy and takes less than one minute). Add all ingredients before turning on the heat. Turn on the heat just high enough to start the popcorn popping. No need to crank the handle as fast as you can. Just keep the popcorn moving along the bottom. We use olive oil because we like the flavor and healthfulness of it, but any oil will do. Some people recommend coconut oil for real movie theater flavor, but we have never tried it. Use good quality popcorn. We use Orville Redenbacher, but we are going to try some of the gourmet Amish corns that are on the market. Keep an eye, or an ear, on the popping. Once the popping goes from a “popity-popity-pop” to a slower “pop-pop” pace, then it is time to remove the popper from the heat. Pour your popcorn into your favorite popcorn bowl then salt and butter to taste. Pop in a movie and snuggle up to your favorite person to share popcorn with and dig in! When it is time to clean up, the manufacturer says to just wipe down the inside with a paper towel to keep the pan seasoned.Get additional information at receita de pipoca doce.
