Everybody loves popcorn and most people go for the easy microwave variety. But did you know you can make it from scratch and it tastes AWESOME!
I grew up on homemade popcorn but hadn’t had any for a long time. I made microwave popcorn occasionally but didn’t really like it. Then my son and daughter-in-law made homemade popcorn for me and it was delicious! I had forgotten how good homemade popcorn tasted. And that’s when I realized why I didn’t like microwave popcorn – because I was accustomed to the real stuff.
So I started making homemade popcorn on a regular basis. Unfortunately, it really messed up my favorite pan, and sometimes the popcorn burned. I don’t think there’s any smell worse than burned popcorn.
To save my pan from further damage, I started searching for a pan to dedicate to popcorn making and that’s when I discovered The Original Whirley Pop Stovetop Popcorn Popper at Bed, Bath & Beyond for $19.99. There are a few kitchen tools I can’t live without and this is one of them.
