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.
