    Best Popcorn Ever… If You Pay Attention, July 2, 2005

    I’ve been using my Whirley Pop for three years now. I eat a lot of popcorn, and I’ve tried every method known to man for making it. This device wins the prize: it makes a full pot of fluffy, crisp corn using a minimum of oil, leaving essentially no unpopped kernels.

    But you have to pay attention to the directions and leave your preconceptions behind.

    1. Don’t use high heat. Yes, with the usual heavy pot you use high heat and shake vigorously. With Whirley Pop, you should use medium heat, and just crank the crank.

    2. Don’t use too much oil. 1-2 tablespoons is plenty. Use canola oil and you have a low-fat, low-cholesterol snack that tastes delicious.

    3. Use good-quality popping corn. Orville’s is good, but I’ve also gotten fine results with bulk popping corn for 50 cents a pound as well. Just know your source. And store it properly, sealed, dry, and cool. I’ve tried several exotic and (expensive) varieties and usually achieved results inferior to Orville’s.

    4. DON’T USE HIGH HEAT. Really. Most of the problems people seem to have with the Whirley Pop can probably be traced to setting the burner to High.

    I don’t really recommend any of the other products – corn, oils, flavorings – sold along with this popper, but the popper itself makes perfect popcorn, the best I’ve every had. You just have to pay attention to what you’re doing and follow the instructions.

    Had to Replace the Unit – – It only lasted 6 years, January 6, 2003

    After 6 years of Continuous Use (three teenagers and all of their friends) we finally decided to replace our Whirly Pop. It makes great popcorn. It does not fall apart if you use it gently and properly. Sure it is “thin” and “flimsy”… you are making Popcorn, not stew! You want thin metal to heat gently and quickly (and to cool quickly without burning). It is gentle on the popcorn. No bruising or shredding like some other devices. Use the best oil and the best popcorn. It will do well with the cheap stuff, but the fresher the popcorn and oil, the better the taste. And don’t bother washing the thing. My teenagers never did. Just wipe it out. Maybe the caked on oil helps hold it together, for those reviewers who said the gear falls off. Use the proper heat! Like Emeril Lagasse says, “your stove has knobs, use them”. If you use high heat, of course you’ll ruin a popcorn popper… or any decent pan. We just ordered another. Our kids have moved off to college. Two have their own Whirly Pop now and my wife and I decided ours was too “used”. 6 years. Lots of use. It still works. So let’s see, that’s about $3.33 per year. Less than a penny a day. Other than the years of coated oil discoloration, I’d still use it, but my wife won’t. Don’t know if I will try and clean it up and put it in a garage sale, because there are so many memories tied up in the old one. Betcha someone would give me a buck for it. Maybe we will just bang on it with a spoon every New Year’s day. This is a great item at a great price and used correctly will provide you with many years of great popcorn and perhaps a few memories.

    Plastic gears come off, February 15, 2002

    This review is from: Wabash Valley Farms 25008 Whirley-Pop Stovetop Popcorn Popper (Kitchen)
    My family has purchased two of these poppers, along with one of its predecessor model, the Felknor popper. (Whirley Pop acquired Felknor a while back.) These poppers make superior popcorn, especially compared to microwave popcorn. However, the Whirley Pop poppers use a pair of plastic gears to connect the crank shaft to the stirrer. They are only pressed on, and on BOTH of the Whirley Pop poppers we have, the gears come off on a regular basis. I slide them back on the crank shaft, but when it happens during the popping, there’s a lot of steam and heat to burn you. The older Felknor unit has metal gears that do NOT come off the shaft.
