Took a while to master the Lekue, but finally ended up with really good popcorn.
First the DOs:
1. Use about 1/4 cup of popping corn or less.
2. Pop on High for about 2 minutes. If the popping slows down, stop it then.
3. Scoop the popped corn into a bowl. There will be some un-popped kernels left in the popper.
4. Pop the remaining kernels for a minute or so. When the popping is almost done (1 second between pops) turn off and move to bowl.
5. Practice a bit. Every microwave is different and different varieties of popcorn behave differently.
1. Don't wait until every kernel is popped. Some will ultimately burn.
2. Don't get distracted. The time between perfection and burnt popcorn is very short.
Cleaning is very easy if you don't use oil and sugar. If you do use these, put some water and a drop of detergent in the popper, stick it in the microwave for 20 secs., then wash.
Note: I had tried it using cooking or olive oil and/or salt, but found the unadulterated version (no oil/salt) was easier to control and made good, light, popcorn.
This popper folds down to 2.25" high & the lid stores in it so it doesn't hog space in my cabinet. It goes thru the dishwasher with no problem, holds plenty of popcorn & it works really well for popping.
I just put 1/3 Cup corn, drizzle olive oil, sprinkle of popcorn salt & put it in the microwave for 3 minutes on high setting. Listen for the popping; when it slows down, take it out. It never takes 3 minutes - usually just 2.5 minutes or less. This varies from microwave to microwave & the amount of corn you use. It can burn really fast, so pay attention!
You can put any unpopped corn back in the microwave. We did that last night & then had NO unpopped kernels.
A recipe booklet comes with this. You can make caramel corn, buttered, herbed, curry, etc. Since this washes so easily, it makes it easy to change your flavor.
It comes in a really cool box which is perfect for gifting.
The bowl is BPA Free.
After washing and drying it, I made my first batch of popcorn. I was impressed with how few kernels remained when the popping finished. I do recommend you stay near the microwave to listen for the popping sounds, as popping times will vary depending on how much corn you put into the bowl. I also do not add oil when popping.
This is an item I will recommend to family and friends and can see myself purchasing again in the future as a gift.
Per the instructions, I used 1/2 cup of kernels, 1 tbsp olive oil, and a couple splashes of table salt. After about two minutes in the microwave, I realized that 1/2 cup is too much. Although it was still popping vigorously, the top had popped off and popcorn was spilling out. The popcorn at the top of the pile was a bit scorched, the rest was just fine. There were some unpopped kernels, but most likely because I stopped the microwave before it turned into that scene from "Real Genius".
Next time I'll try 1/3 cup of kernels and maybe just under 1 tbsp olive oil.
Update: Yes, 1/3 cup is the correct amount. It fills the bowl without overflowing and only a few unpopped kernels at the bottom.
So far, I am pleased with it. Conventional popcorn with the convenience of microwave popcorn
Update: I've seen others report that the popcorn gets burned. Not counting my first experience, I have not noticed excessive burning. Or, at least, no more than I would expect from prepackaged microwave popcorn. I do use a little olive oil and a drizzle of melted butter, so that may help. I also don't try to pop EVERY kernel. As soon as there is a second and half to two second interval between pops, I pull it from the microwave. I'd rather have a few unpopped kernels at the bottom than have burned popcorn. (Working in a cube farm, I can tell you the worst smell in the world is burned microwave popcorn.)
