For my birthday this year, my sister in law got me a Whirley Pop. Trust me, if you've never heard of it before, you're not alone. When she told me about it, she described it as the best popcorn popper and said it was better than any popcorn she's ever made.
I was skeptical. Whenever I have made popcorn on the stove there were always kernels burning on the bottom, or a million un-popped kernels left over. Yuck.
The way this ingenious little device works is that you turn the handle which makes a thin wire stir the kernels inside the pot. You continue turning the handle until it gets tough to turn and then wait a few seconds until all the popping has stopped.
|So fun even my husband wants to make popcorn!|
Let me tell you, this has made the BEST popcorn ever. Really. Every kernel is popped. I have yet to have ONE single burnt piece.
To make a full pot, you use 1/2 cup of kernels and 1-3 T of oil. The kids love it plain, but I like to sprinkle a little of this cheddar powder on it!
My sister in law is on a roll with her AWESOME gift ideas for me! She was the one who bought me the cookbook that changed the way my family eats. So if you're looking for a great gift idea, I give this two thumbs up...and by the looks of it, the girls think it's pretty good too!
