Things You'll Need
1/2 cup measure
The Whirley Pop Popcorn Popper is a machine used to heat up and cook popcorn. The popper cooks any brand of popcorn in less than 3 minutes. With popcorn kernels and a teaspoon of vegetable oil, the Whirley Pop can make up to six quarts of popcorn in a single use. Its patented manual stirring mechanism stirs the popcorn in the Whirley Pop to prevent the kernels from burning.
Lift and remove the cover from the Whirley Pop Popcorn Popper. Add 1/2 cup of popcorn kernels to the Whirley Pop Popcorn Popper pan. Pour a teaspoon of vegetable oil into the pan to prevent the kernels from sticking together. Place the cover on the top of the popcorn popper.
Place the Whirley Pop Popcorn Popper on a stove top and set the burner to medium heat.
Stir the kernels using the stirring mechanism attached to the cover of the popcorn popper. Use your hand to slowly churn the popcorn kernels as they cook. This will ensure a even cooking process and prevent the kernels from burning. Allow the popcorn to cook as you continue to stir for three minutes, or until the popping noises slow and stop.
Place oven mitts on your hands and take the popcorn popper off of the stove top, removing it from the heat. Remove the lid from the popcorn maker and pour the popcorn into a serving bowl. Season the popcorn using butter and salt to suit your preference.
