It seems that any great movie experience must always include one crucial item. Popcorn! When Hubby and I got married we had started doing some oil-popped popcorn in a pan. He has mad skills and always timed it to perfection. However there was a problem….
I wanted Popcorn more often than he did…
And as it turns out, my skills with oil-popping popcorn were somewhat lacking. Yes, this housewife burns the popcorn 😦 . Then came this amazing idea. The Air Popper!
Now I no longer have to pester my dear husband to make me popcorn. I can do it myself! (Hmmm sounds like I’m a big kid now commercial.) So whether I’m making popcorn for 1 or 2, it can always be timed to perfection. While this isn’t a daily use product, and can’t be defined as a “necessity” I think we will always have one stored in the cupboard for all popcorn worthy occasions!
For a little bag or bottle of kernels, it seems to be between 1-3 dollars and LOTS of servings. A bag usually lasts the 2 of us about one month to two. The boxes of microwave popcorn usually are between 3-4 dollars a box with about 6 or so packages in the box. So better taste, better value we chose to purchase one to help us save money over the long run.
And that is my favorite kitchen item for Monday! As this week goes by please let me know what are your favorite kitchen items that you wouldn’t want to live without! Is your family a popcorn eating family? Do you air-pop?
