Popcorn by far is my favorite snack. I like it salty, sweet, savory, and spicy. So when I came across the Catamount Microwave Popcorn Popper I just had to have it! Made from borosilicate glass or laboratory glass, it is heat resitant up to 675 degrees. You can add butter to the melting lid or not, your choice, plus there is no need to add any oil. There are also no added chemicals like you get sometimes with the processed bag of microwave popcorn. I could go on and on of the benefits of cooking popcorn in this thing. Not forgetting to mention that a bag of popcorn kernels, enough for at least 30-50 batches of popcorn, costs about $1.99 at the grocery store! Compare that to a 6-pack box of microwave popcorn, usually around $3.99-$4.99.

It tastes just like the homemade popcorn my mom used to make in her old 1980's electric machine. Minus all the cooking oil!

Because I love my Catamount Popcorn maker so much I decided to give Jenna and Tom one as a wedding present!! I normally try not to stray too far of the registry list for wedding presents, but for something that I use so much, I thought they wouldn't mind!

I included a jar of popcorn kernels, some popcorn napkins, and a melted butter pourer to the gift.

I hope Jenna and Tom love this as much as I do!!


  1. Well, I love it!! I really want to get one. :D

  2. BTW - we have one like your mom's 1980's one. And it makes good popcorn but it's a bitch to clean!!
