- Lower Calories Option
Ideally, you can make things like organic popcorn without adding anything to it. With bags of popcorn there is very little control, if any, over what goes on the popcorn. However, with the FlavorQuik Popcorn Popper you can just add the plain kernels and enjoy a lower calorie snack. This is, of course, optional and not guaranteed if you choose to add other things to your popcorn like toppings.
- Good Way to Make Fast Popcorn
FlavorQuik Popcorn Popper works as a bowl you can put in the microwave. It creates old fashioned style popcorn without taking as much time.
- Does Not Stand Out
The FlavorQuik Popcorn Popper does not stand out in its design or its functionality compared to the competition. There are dozens of similar designs on the market right now and unfortunately, they are all about the same. They all have the same size, structure, and purpose. In all fairness, the alternatives do not stand out much in comparison to the FlavorQuik Popcorn Popper either.
Does It Really Work?
Yes, all evidence supports that it really works. At this juncture though, there is to much to set it apart from similar microwavable bowl designs which also work.
That being said, you might experience a bit of a learning curve with regard to how long you have to microwave your kernels. You might find that there are un-popped kernels after just three minutes, or you burned it. This is really something influenced by your microwave settings and the quantity of kernels.
You can also rely on it to prepare other foods. Not just for popcorn, the cup and lid design is a safe way to reheat foods like pasta or soup. It is also a nice way to steam vegetables in the microwave with very little clean up.
How to Use (Step by Step)
Fill the bowl with your favorite popcorn kernels.
Place the lid on top to seal it shut.
Prepare it in the microwave, and then take it out and enjoy a single portion size bowl of freshly popped pop corn.
The FlavorQuik Popcorn Popper lets you save money in two ways. Firstly, you save money on the cost of the unit. One FlavorQuik Popcorn Popper is less expensive than electric or air poppers. The other way you save money is on the portion control. When you prepare popcorn on the stove or in a microwavable bag, you don't have as much control over the portion size. You might end up making too little or too much. In the case of the latter, you waste food which wastes money.
When you use this microwavable bowl you can save time by preparing your popcorn faster. This is much faster than stove top methods.
Tips & Tricks
- Different Flavors
When you purchase the FlavorQuik Popcorn Popper, you do not get different additives. This means you have the freedom to select the type of pop corn kernels you want.
That said, you can sprinkle different toppings onto your kernels while cooking to add different flavors. Generic salt is the most popular, or salt and butter. You can add sugar and salt to make it a kettle corn mixture.
- Non-traditional Flavors
Additives like bacon bits and cheese can make fun party style popcorn for guests. This is great for football games or sports themed parties.
Garlic salt and Parmesan cheese is great for an Italian themed event.
For a Spanish theme, you can sprinkle cheese, cumin, and chili powder.
- Sweet Flavors
Adding more than just sugar is on the table. You can add melted caramel toppings or even chocolate toppings to make unique caramel popcorn desserts for holiday parties or movie nights.
- Regular Bowl
The first alternative is just a regular bowl with a plate on top. Using the same science, you can just fill a microwavable bowl with kernels and cover it with a plate in the microwave. The learning curve will be roughly the same in this case.
