One of my families favorite snacks is popcorn. It’s healthier, lower calorie and kids love to make it. Movie night would not be the same without a huge bowl of popcorn sprinkled with your favorite topping. As a kid, we use to make popcorn using a large stainless steel pot. It had permanent burn marks when we failed to shake the popping corn well enough. I can remember eating burnt flavored popcorn a few times. Later I was using a hot air popper but the noise was so loud so I quit using it. Recently I had the opportunity to try out Jacob Bromwell’s Popcorn Popper.
Using Jacob Bromwell’s Popcorn Popper adds a whole new experience to popcorn making. This handcrafted nostalgia looking popcorn maker is made from authentic materials and maintains it’s original design. It’s a novelty item that can be used on your stove, at a campfire and even in your fireplace. It’s lightweight and very easy to clean. It’s quite long (2 ft) so I hang mine in the pantry.
We used the popper on our stove top and it works great. You add 3 Tbsp of our choice of oil, I use organic coconut oil, and one-third cup of popcorn to the popper and shake until it quits popping. You will still have to watch that you don’t burn your popcorn by shaking the popper on the stove. There is a perforated lid that slides on top of the popper to prevent popcorn from popping all over the place. When your popcorn is done you flip it upside down and all the unpopped kernels will fall out. I love this feature! Only nice fluffy popcorn is left for you to enjoy. I really like the wooden handle feature too, it prevents any chance of your hands getting too hot while holding the popper.
Our friends have a fire pit in their backyard and we took the popcorn popper over there to see if the popcorn would turn out as nice on an open flame. Surprisingly the popcorn came out great. If the flame is too large it will climb up the sides of your popper leaving a smoke resin, so a small flame is good. Wherever there is a flame, you could use this fun popcorn popper. My husband is a camper and looks forward to taking this with him camping next summer. We thought this was a fun product for our family and it would make a wonderful gift as well.
The nice people at Jacob Bromwell’s would love to offer this Popcorn Popper to one lucky reader. Thank you, Jacob Bromwell.
