Wal-Mart sells all-cotton bandanas that cost about a dollar each. The designs offered change frequently. Unfortunately, they are made in China.

The Best Home-Made Popcorn Machine that I Have Found

The stirring popcorn maker by West Bend, Stir Crazy,  makes wonderfully fluffy popcorn every time. This model is superior to the analogous product made by Presto, which  has a very weak bowl and useless lid. This popper is much more well-made. Instead of vegetable oil, I use coconut oil for a more health-promoting snack.
One of the better bagged raw popcorn brands is Wal-Mart’s Great Value. I find that it is superior to that of Orville Redenbacher. Pop Secret is good too, though it tastes a little less corny.

The Best Home-Made Popcorn Machine

The stirring popcorn maker by West Bend, Stir Crazy, available at Target for $19.99, makes wonderfully fluffy popcorn every time. This model is superior to the analogous product made by Presto, which costs ten dollars more at Wal-Mart and has a very weak bowl and useless lid. This popper is much more well-made. Instead of vegetable oil, I use coconut oil for a more health-promoting snack.
