You Go Girl!! I hate micro popcorn.. Seeing your pressure kettle makes me smile and reminds me of those cozy nights long ago with my parents ..When making the popcorn was a treat in its self..Mom refused to make the Jiffy pop like i refuse the micro bags... Nothing can compare to kettle popped! YUMMO! {{HUGS}}

You made me hungry. I love your pot, seems like the weight would be just perfect, no old maids left in the bottom. We actually had one of those long handled ones you use to use in the fireplace years ago. I don't know how my Momma put up with all the mess the six of us made! I remember her doing it on top of the old electric stove too. Autumn munchies sure to come from reading your post, later on, frosty cool evenings, a good book, warm cocoa and popcorn!

I love your popcorn popper. :) You won't find the microwave stuff here unless it's for crafting. I do it in a large pot with a lid. We use bacon grease instead of oil sometimes.

Blessings, Jessica
