My Stir Crazy popcorn popper

Nearly three years ago I took a quick video of my Westbend  Stir Crazy Popcorn Popper.  We love out Stir Crazy and use it all the time.  It is quite east to use and makes yummy popcorn.  What better way to show my admiration of it than to post it to youtube.com.  So, I did.

I am surprised how popular the video is.  It is not viral or have monster view counts but at 20,000 views to date, I think it is pretty cool how many folks have viewed it.  I was surprise how many sites have links to it too.  It is all rather fun if you ask me.

The Stir Crazy is basically an automatic popper like in the theaters but the stirrer is on the bottom and the popcorn fills the dome.   We dollop too much butter on the top which has holes for the steam to escape and melt the butter so it drips down on the popcorn.  We tried butter in the pan but it made scrunchy shriveled popcorn.  We like it large and fluffy.

We like to use Mortons popcorn salt which is very fine.  We flip the popper so all the popcorn is in the dome lid.  If we did it right, we don't have popcorn overflowing the dome.  We usually transfer it to a large bowl or divide it up so everyone has some in their distant corners of the giant sectional couch.  I have embedded the video here if you have not seen it and want to.  profiter le pop-corn!
