Okay, okay... I know that I JUST blogged about scoring this thing on our Missouri Adventure but Thursday night we finally got to see it in action!
(Meet our Atom-Pop Models, Savannah & Patricia)They read the instructions to me while I operated, this advanced and modern piece of technology.
Followed by 1/4 cup of cooking oil...
Finally I covered the pan and placed on high heat...
AND THEN we stood around the stove entranced by that the aluminum pot, staring so intently and in such silence- you would have thought it was an Atom Bomb we'd just put on the stove burner rather than a kettle of corn... then about five minuets in we start to hear-
The popping went on for about three to four minuets longer and then finally, teaming with anticipation- we took the State-of-the-Art containment shield (I.E. the lid) off to REVEAL!
A perfectly popped batch of corn, enough to feed about four people!
("SUCCESS!" Cry the Atom Pop Models.)
("And it's so Tasty Too!")
"Simple enough for a child to use, Designed for modern living."

Hands down one of my best $2.00 purchases yet!
You can read even more about the history and fun of this thing at its website.
