I really love this popper. It is a healthy tasty alternative to microwave popcorn. Only takes a little longer to use. Easy to clean and no burnt popcorn.

I have had my Back to Basics Stir Crazy Popcorn Maker for about seven years now, and I still love it just as much as I did the day I bought it. This popcorn maker is very easy to clean and very durable. Our whole family can eat popcorn all day long so it is great that it pops the corn in around four minutes. I love that it has a butter well on top. You can butter your popcorn while you pop it! It is easy enough to operate that my ten year old can operate it and does all the time. She cannot seem to get enough of it! I cannot express how much I would recommend this popcorn maker! Seven years later and it is still as good as it was when we got it. We use it all the time, so it is obviously durable. The popcorn tastes great too! Before I bought the Stir Crazy Popcorn Maker, I was burning popcorn more often than not. Now, the Stir Crazy has become my best friend. It is great for movie nights and parties. You should get one!

I have never bought myself an electric popcorn maker, never thought I needed one. I grew up popping pop corn in a pot on the stove, then transitioned to the microwave popcorn packs because they were convenient. Last year for my birthday I received this Back to Basics Stir Crazy Popcorn Maker from my sister. She had bought one for herself and said that she knew I would love it. Bless her heart, she was right, I do love it. This popper is so easy to use, simply put the popcorn seeds into the base and then add oil (not necessary if you prefer healthier popcorn) and then put the cover on. Plug it in and sit back for 4-6 minutes till the popping stops and then flip the popper over making the cover a bowl. Remove the base and it's done! I like that I can now use a variety of types and brands of popcorn. I have experimented with a few types and enjoy mixing white with yellow for a combination bowl. I believe anyone who enjoys popcorn would find this popper a must have for preparing fresh popcorn quick and easy for less money than those microwave packs! Settings/Features There are no settings for this popper.

I love to make popcorn at home and I had an air popper for many years. It broke a few years back and I didn't replace it for awhile, instead just eating microwave popcorn. I started to do a lot of reading and realized that microwave popcorn was not very good for me, and I was also tired of the chemical taste that it had. I looked at a bunch of different poppers and I really liked the look of this one so I bough it for myself. I was pretty excited to once again have some nice air popped popcorn. I was a little disappointed with it, the popcorn was okay, but it had a tendency to burn some of it, which I really don't like. I also found this popcorn popper very hard to clean. Performance Some popcorn ended up burnt. Settings/Features This popper is pretty basic and easy to use. Ease of Cleaning Not very easy to get entirely clean after you pop the popcorn. Ease of Use Very easy to use. Durability I've had this for quite some time but I don't really use it that often.

I don't do microwave popcorn, and I don't do the air-popped popcorn. Before I bought this, I just put a pan on the stove added a little oil, and popped it that way. There was really nothing wrong with that method, but my husband bought me this, because he felt my method was a bit ancient. He still hasn't gotten over that I don't throw butter on my popcorn. Performance This little unit heats up quick, and pops the kernels quickly, without burning them while it finishes popping. Something that is lacking in my stove top method. Settings/Features Not much in the settings. On or Off. That is all that is needed. Ease of Cleaning Just wipe down the base unit, and wash the bowl with the regular dishes. It is really that easy. Ease of Use Very easy to use. Just put the popcorn in the center depression, Add some oil, put the bowl on it, and turn it on. You will get great popcorn. Durability I worry that the bowl will crack before the unit is ready for its end of life. Not sure if I can buy a replacement bowl.

Back to Basics Stir Crazy Popcorn Maker is a must have for popcorn lovers. Whenever I watch movies at home I love to enjoy a bowl of popcorn. This popcorn maker is very easy to use and is virtually hassle free clean up. Whenever I use this popcorn maker I use only 1 1/2 tbsp. - 2 tbsp. of oil and not the recommened amount of 3 tbsp. of oil. Instead of putting butter on the top of the lid I mix the butter in with the oil. The butter cause too much moisture if placed on top of the lid and makes the popcorn soggy. This popcorn maker is easy to store. I store my popcorn maker underneath my kitchen cabinet. I use this popcorn on a regular basis and have had great results. I would recommend this product to anyone who like popcorn.

This product is something that I was hesitating to use because I have used other one before and I had them and the product was not that great boy was I wrong this is the best popper I have ever had and will never exchange for any thing else. Performance this is the best quality I have use what is say it more then better than you would think it does. the performance is fast and quality. I would recommend this definitely. Settings/Features Easy to use and not hard to understand Ease of Cleaning Just wipe it out and easy to clean up after use. I could not believe how you could clean this product thinking it would have some thing sticking and difficult to come out after use no way easy as possible. I also like the ideal it never burns so awesome. Ease of Use Direction are as easy as it says, I have trouble following direction almost on every thing I think it is old age but I can not believe how easy it was to use, If I can do it any body can. Durability awesome

A couple months ago I was shopping with my mother in law and saw the Crazy Stir Popcorn Maker. I told her how we used to pop our own popcorn growing up and how it tasted SO much better than the kind that comes in the microwave bags. Imagine my delight when I opened one as a gift on Christmas! First thing I did when we got home was open it up and use it. Being able to watch the corn kernels pop amazed my kids since they have only been exposed to bag popcorn in the past. I did notice that the maker got a little hot which means the kids can't use it without supervision. It is so nice to be able to chose your own popcorn kernels and it is a lot cheaper than bagged popcorn! If you want butter or toppings you just add it yourself. I also liked that the lid can be used as a popcorn bowl. It is pretty easy to clean when done as well making this a win win buy!
