Works for Me Wednesday


It’s been awhile since I have done WFMW.  But as I broke out my faithful air popper  popcorn maker the other night, I knew I just had to tell you about it!

This $1 yard sale find over 10 years ago has evolved into legendary status in our household.  It’s something family traditions are made of!


And it makes the BEST popcorn, it makes microwave popcorn taste like cardboard with lots of calories!

I simply pop the popcorn and mix with 1 stick of melted butter ( yes 1 stick! This is how the popcorn has acquired legendary status in my family!) and salt. Then serve hot during a family movie.  My kids still ( they are 14 and 12) clamor for this favorite.  This popcorn maker is more than just a small appliance to make popcorn with, it’s something that makes great family memories.   And with the holidays approaching I thought you too may want to purchase your own “family, memory maker.” 🙂

It’s a simple special treat that I can bless my family with….and that Works For Me!


  1. Girl I just bought a hot air popper a few months ago too and we eat popcorn that way as well. That microwave stuff is yuck. I love melting the butter and putting the popcorn flavor on the top. We all like white cheddar. Yum.

  2. yum! I may have to check out GoodWill…they also work good if you are going to string popcorn for your tree…not coated with oil…etc

  3. I like it much better than microwave popcorn too. Although the last time we used it, hubby really drowned the popcorn in butter and it was a little too much for my taste buds.

  4. I used to have one of these in college. It saw a lot of use. Do they still make them, I wonder?

    It’s wonderful to make memories with your family like that! And I’m with you all, the more salt and butter, the better!
