Ha! I love this deal. I totally had one of these as a kid…it was like a magic little popcorn making machine to me then. 🙂
Amazon has the Presto 114316 04820 PopLite Hot Air Corn Popper marked down to $14.99 (from $29.99)! It will also ship for FREE with an order over $25 and has a 4-1/2 out of 5 star customer rating. Here is one of the reveiws:
The Presto 04820 is a great inexpensive popcorn popper. It is very easy to use–simply pour in 1/2 cup of popcorn and turn it on. A minute or so later, the popcorn gets hot enough to pop and begins to flow (sometimes shoot) out the front of the unit. Have a nice big bowl in front of it! There is a butter cup on top of the unit. The idea is to use the popper’s heat to melt the butter. It doesn’t quite work out that way, because the butter doesn’t have adequate time to melt. Fortunately, the butter cup is microwave (and dishwasher) safe, so you can just pop it in the microwave for a few seconds to finish the melting. Popcorn comes out very well popped, no burned kernels, and very few unpopped kernels (perhaps 5-10 total).
This would make a fun gift if you are looking for something unique!
