Rated 5 out of 5 by drannc007 Fun to use and better than microwave
This makes great popcorn!
It is fun to use and the popcorn kits that come with are so delicious and easy! Easy use over the stove and clean up is easy too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChesterCounty like movie popcorn
We used this over a backyard firepit and it worked great, have to keep shaking it the whole time but it doesn't take long. Whatever the popcorn mix is that they give you tastes like movie popcorn.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cwlady Well built
I haven't use this yet but it appears to be well built. My only question is, when popping, how does it not push up the one lid that's not latched? One of the three bags of popcorn kits had leaked but these things happen. Can't wait to try this over the campfire this summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBean4youandme Perfect for the campfire
The first popcorn popper was defective and the handle would not stay in place. I contacted LLBean as soon as we returned from vacation and, as always, LLBean came through. They immediately sent another one along with a return label for the first one.
We have camped a couple more times this summer and the popcorn popper we have now has worked perfectly each time. The popcorn that comes along with the set is delicious!
If for any reason you would have the same situation, let LLBean know; they are always willing to help.

I haven't used the item yet as it will be for a family Christmas present this year. I rated it a 5 as I have always gotten great quality from LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NorthCountryGardenMom Lots of Fun
The Easter Bunny gave this popper to my daughter and we've enjoyed using it all summer long - both outside over the campfire and indoors over the gas stove.
It works great and makes super popcorn quickly.
I recommend using loose popcorn and oil, then season it as you like (tried the popcorn kits - don't like the artificial ingredients).

by biobeanie So Much Fun and Good Popcorn Too!
We used this the first time in Yellowstone to celebrate someone's birthday. Birthday Popcorn! It worked so well when you get it down onto the embers of the fire. It needs to get hot quickly and you have to move it back and forth so it doesn't burn. We first tried it on top of the built in grate on the fire pit and it didn't get hot enough to pop. After we figured it out, it worked like a charm and there were not many old maids and not one burnt piece. It tasted good and was fun to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sireatalot nice popper
The popcorn popper works great. We placed a grate over our fire to use it with because we found it gets heavy if you just hang it over the fire. Use a oven mitt on your hand because the handle is a little short and your hand gets hot from the fire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IowaOutdoorsMom Great Addition to Outdoor Cooking!
The review by AMEgrandmom is spot-on. We have used this popper for 3 years over our gas fire pit outside, on our ceramic-top stove at home (with the handle in its shortest setting) and over a regular campfire. Great popcorn every time! It is not flimsy, but you must keep in mind that the pot is made of aluminum so if you bang it hard, it will dent (I store mine in the box it came in). Keep it moving by shaking back and forth (not up and down which may pop the cover off). Our favorite is with plain ole' cooking oil and popping corn seeds from the grocery store. Add popcorn salt only after it's done popping. Enjoy!
