Do you have to pour butter once done i had bad luck with that part in past

I have had mine for 10 years and it is great! I use margarine rather than butter. I found that butter always caused the popcorn to come out burned. Margarine works great and tastes just like butter. I also find using a large rubber spoon to swish the popped corn around the inside sides of the popper helps to get melted margarine residue onto the popcorn for even more buttery flavor!

Is this usa made?

“made in china” is noted on the instruction manual pdf which is accessible on this product listing. In the bottom right hand corner of the document, it states:
“manufactured by:
epoca international, llc boca raton, fl 33487 made in china
questions or comments: customerservice@epoca.com”

they are misrepresenting this product by listing the country of origin as usa. They should not be allowed to falsify this information, as many of us try to shop specifically for usa-made products. If i had realized prior to my purchase, then i would not have ordered this product. Even more so now, since they are providing untrue information

Does anybody else have issues with it sparking in the microwave? I can put anything else in the microwave and it will not spark, just with this thing

I have the popco popper. After several weeks my popper also started the microwave to spark. After trying several things i tried flipping the lid upside down and the sparking stopped. Weird huh? I’m guessing the ornamentation on the top of the lid is having some affect. Just popped another bowl with lid upside down and got no sparking.

Any recommendations on which popcorn kernels to use with this?

I use trader joe’s popcorn kernels and they pop up nicely but my guess is almost any would work well with this popcorn popper. You could try several different brands to see which one you like the best or works the best for you with this popcorn popper and your microwave.

What is the height of the small version of the evolution popcorn popper

Five inches from bottom to top. Useful space more like 4 3/4 .

Is the lid made with plastic or silicone?

The lid is silicone.

What wattage and success do people have? We have a 1600 watt microwave. We pop for 8 minutes and maybe get 70% pop rate along with some burnt kernals

Popcorn kernels must be fresh and have internal moisture in order to pop. Old popcorn will not look any difference, but just won’t pop. My microwave is 1600 or 1800 watts and it takes 4 minutes and 15 seconds for the ideal amount popped without burning any. If i go for 4 minutes and 30 seconds i’ll have 99%+ popped, but some seems a bit dry and over done. Finally – store opened popcorn in a container that’s airtight so the kernels will retain their moisture.

How many cups does the 1.5 quart size make?

Not sure. I have the 3 qt version which makes a very large bowl of popcorn, enough for two – 6-8 cups maybe.

Can’t seem to get this to pop correctly. Any tips so kernels don’t burn before they are done?

Microwaves will vary with the time that it takes to pop the popcorn in your micro popper. Set your microwave timer for 3.5 minutes or longer and leave it uninterrupted — stop it when there are just a few seconds between pops to prevent it from burning. Also fresh popcorn kernels are important for best results.

Would like to buy the 3 quart in case my husband and i would like to share – will the larger size pop a smaller amount to serve just one person?

Yes, you can pop corn for sharing or for one person. You just change the amount of popcorn kernels you put in the popper.

Will this fit in the coffee maker? It looks the size of my carafe

It is probably the same size of a lot of coffee maker carafes. Don’t know why anyone would use ti in this way. It isn’t made for coffeemakers. Have no idea if it would fit. Again, don’t know why anyone would wish to do so. It is not made to be a coffee carafe. And, it doesn’t do the popcorn popping for which it was made.

How much does this weigh?!

Hi lucia! It weighs 14.7 oz to be precise.

Can it be used without any kind of oil or butter? Are they very necessary?

Ecolution micro-popper can be used without butter or oil.

Can you use oil along with the kernels inside this popper?

Hello! With the ecolution’s micro-pop microwave popcorn maker, there is no need for oils or additives. Just measure your kernels in the silicone lid, drop them directly into the popper, place the lid on top and put directly into the microwave! Delicious with no additives or oils added! Have fun!

When do you add salt?

It is usually best to add salt after its popped.

Yes — my grandson has misplaced the lid to my popcorn popper like this — can i just buy a new lid?

Replacement lids are available – call ecolution customer service.

Is the plastic where the butter goes pba free?

Is the top soft or is it hard that holds the butter

Does this popper include the protective cover for the pot?

Not sure what you mean protective cover. What you see is what you get, the glass pot, red plastic around the glass pot and the red lid that has holes leading to the popping corn so you can add butter to the lid and melt it into the popcorn same time as you are popping the corn kernels.

Can you add sugar to make kettle corn?

If you use sugar, add it after the popcorn is done popping. Pour the hot kernels into a bowl and sprinkle on, then stir. Adding sugar while popping is likely to burn.

When using or cleaning very fragile.

What i like it’s easy to use, now it says 4min that’s about right, the glass is thin, plastic, is plastic so keeping an eye on, is important, sometimes all corn pops sometimes popcorn get scorched in the middle, more often yummy. I’ve bought 3 due to accident ( fragile)
1st time putting in sink, gently next time, 2nd have know idea, but that i wanted popcorn , so i ordered a 3rd one. I’ll probably order a 4th. So yes love this popcorn bowl

I purchased this for my husband’s anniversary gift as he loves his butter popcorn it’s very easy to use it’s dishwasher safe a half a cup {the lid is the measure)read directions tho} it makes a half a bowl 2 cups makes a big bowl the size of the container much safer than eating that old crap in a bag he thought it was a kool-aid jug funny joke i had to laugh and then i had to explain to him we like it we plan on using it a lot i recommend it if you love eating popcorn without the mess on the stove or eating those dry packs sitting in lard here you can use your own butter and it comes up tasting like movie theater popcorn every time as long as he likes it i’m a happy wife!

Great purchase for popcorn lovers!

After trying many different types of products to pop corn rather than microwave packets i finally hit the jackpot! Great flavor, almost ever kernel pops (you have to do some trial and error for your microwave wattage) and love the top where the butter drips in.

5Expert Score
Just the right amount

I like this small popper. It makes just enough for me. I also have a larger one for when i need to make more. And melting butter over the popcorn is so easy. It doesn’t leave the popcorn soggy like some other poppers. I had to experiment with the timing. No big deal. I get few if any unpopped kernels and no burn.

5Expert Score
Improved

This is my second popper, the first one broke in the dishwasher (most likely my fault) on the rim. The company has improved the design by placing a ring by the upper lip.

Love this thing, does not have to be washed between multiple uses. If this one gets broken i will buy again.

Popcorn tastes good!

I bought this to replace my nordicware popcorn popper which is also for use in the microwave, trying to get away from plastic. It works very well, i do add a little bit of oil to it even though it did not say you had to, i just think the popcorn pops up more tender when you do. I don’t use the butter dispenser, instead i melt butter in a bowl and just pour it over the popcorn!

5Expert Score
Perfect

This product has changed my eating habits! So easy to make a small amount of popcorn with no additives. I eat this snack before bed and feel so full without any sugar or fats.

Very easy to use, popcorn comes out perfect. I melt a little butter on top

5Expert Score
Works well

We were using another type (the rubbery kind) that popped popcorn well but was a bit of a mess to clean. Water would get stuck in the top in the dishwasher.

This was cleans better in the dishwasher. The handle helps lots when removing it from the microwave.

5Expert Score
Perfect popper for me with no mess!

Each microwave is different. I got the timing right on the second batch and forward. Easy clean up. The popper and lid fit on the top row in the dishwasher. I put 2 pats of butter in the top and found this to be the right amount for lightly buttered popcorn. You can add a few shakes of salt to the corn before popping or after it is popped.

5Expert Score
Easy to use and clean!

This makes a perfect size serving of popcorn for 2 people. Just as fast as store bought microwave popcorn but without all the chemicals. Also love that we determine how much butter or seasoning we want. I liked my whirlypop, but cleaning it wsa dangerous with the sharp edges. This is very easy to clean. We lost my last one, but it had lasted 4 years. Just bought this one and still love it.

Cute little popcorn pot

This cute little glass pot in the blue silicone sleeve with a matching handle and lid is the perfect size for me. Before it arrived i went and got some jt white kernel popcorn from the store and as soon as it came i made some. All but 3 or 4 kernels popped and it was wonderful. Since then i have used the same 2 tablespoons of corn (to fill line on the lid) used butter to melt while popping and just good old air frying.

About the 5th batch it started burning and more kernels didn’t pop. I followed the above procedure and used their recommended 2 and a half minute cook time. I have a 1000 watt microwave and cannot figure out what the problem is. This has happened to me several times but i am not ready to give up on this pot just yet. I find it hard to believe it is the pot but equally as hard to believe it is the microwave which is less than a year old.

I would say to get it and give it a try. When it worked it really worked well and if i still have a problem i will go so far as to order it again. Examinations have not provided any clues. The pot is easy to clean and the lid that goes on it is loose but stays in its area.

A lot of sad popping corn stays undone 🙁

So, disclaimer: i have only done microwave bag popcorn for decades. I have mastered the art of making popcorn. I can put the bag in and take it out until they are done to perfection. So idk if this is some sort of downside to this different ‘method’, but damn what a waste!

For the bags to be perfect, my microwave needs 1:15 minutes but i set it at 3 just in case.

So i’ve used this 4 times already:

the first time (two full measures) a handful got burned: i put them on for 3 mins and stopped it until it had 30 secs left!

The second time (two full measures), i didn’t burn any and they were popped to perfection, yay! I stopped it when it had 45 seconds left, however… About half a measure were left undone.

The third time (two full measures). I left it until there was 40 seconds left and i burnt about 3 popcorn, the rest were done to perfection and about 1/3 of a measurement was left undone.

I noticed that they started burning because they really don’t fit in the popper.

The fourth time, i tried with 1 1/2 measures and left it until there was about a minute left. They were done to perfection. Except about 20 corns weren’t done.

I got tired of wasting corns, so decided to rest run those undone ones in a second round and they popped, so that’s what i’m gonna do from now on!

Anyways, for the rest of the review: the taste is great! Better than the bag ones (i use orville oil that tastes like butter and a bit of salt). And, i have only cleaned it by hand and it’s easy to do so, but i don’t mix the oil or the salt in the popper.

Attractive pop corn maker!

I like this product. I purchased the blue/ green one. It’s retro looking and pretty. I bought the large one and i am glad as it’s quite small. No way would anyone want this in a smaller size. The price was right, it washes well and does a good job of popping healthier popcorn than microwave packet’s which are full of unhealthy toxins.

Works great except for butter

I wanted a popper that would drip butter as it popped and this does, but it starts to burn the kernels.
If you put the butter in at the beginning the first popped kernels will get a burnt flavor. I didn’t get the burnt flavor when i put the butter in midway. All in all though i really like. I do get weird looks when i tell people its for popcorn, they think it’s a coffee carafe.

So much healthier than bag popcorn!

I bought this because i was eating so much popcorn and it gets expensive when you buy bag popcorn. Not only is this a cheaper way to make popcorn it is so much healthier. The only reason i gave it four stars is because i feel there is a definite learning curve to getting the time right. I probably had 10 different batches that were not done or burnt before i got my time down exactly. I guess it really depends on each microwave so you need to play with it a bit.

Just buy the bigger one

It was a learning curve because this needs to be microwaved longer than a bag of popcorn. Aldo judy buy the bigger one…. This pops lie half a serving for me and then i want more but then the microwave time is different because it’s already hot

4Expert Score
We like it

So, maybe it’s the kernels we bought, but it takes about 2.5 minutes for anything to start popping. And you need a ton of butter to even taste it. And by the time the popcorn is all popped, some of the butter is burnt onto the popcorn. The pot is cute and a great idea though. Maybe i just need to take some time to fine tune my craft

Meh

I got 2 one was really good but the other one the first use it caught on fire

Unpopped corn

There is about 60 percent pop rate. I tried three types of corn and three other popping methods. This popper had the lowest popped corn turnout.

Good family size and pops well without oil.

This is a replacement for an old glass popcorn popper. It works well without oil. The capacity is huge and the wide mouth makes it easy to get popped corn out and to clean. The lid is supposed to act as a measuring up, but filling the lid only get the popper 1/2 full when popped. The timing is highly dependent on your particular microwave. The suggested 3 to 3 1/2 minutes was not nearly enough for us. You can also put butter in the lid to have it drip on the popcorn, still experimenting with this option as it doesn’t really change he popcorn flavor that much. Perhaps i need to use a lot more. Overall though, satisfied.
