If you’ve invited me to your wedding in the past 15 years, you probably own an Atom Popper because it’s one of my two favorite wedding gifts (the other is a fire extinguisher). Trust me: if you are going to a wedding, these are welcome gifts, especially if you include a card with a $50 gift card.
Because we eat a lot of popcorn, this is one of the most used cooking tools in our kitchen, and we’re now on our third. (They are long lasting–we’re just hard on them.) The popcorn pops up light and fluffy, and it’s fun to watch the lid rise as the bowl fills. It’s sweetly old fashioned but easier to use than a crank popcorn popper. It’s also cheaper than most air poppers and easier to store. And if you go on a low-carb diet in the future, you can use it as a salad bowl.
You can buy the Atom Popper online or in some stores in the Midwest.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing several popcorn recipes, and I always start with popcorn made with an Atom Popper.
