Popcorn Machine Review - West Bend Stir 82306X Stir Crazy 6-Quart Popcorn Popper

Aug 17, 2007
If you like popcorn and are considering buying a popcorn machine for your home, or if you are looking for a present for a friend or relative, then read this review of an electric popcorn machine with a lot of nice feature, a good looking price tag and good tasting popcorn.

The West Bend Stir 82306X 6-Quart electric popcorn machine can be yours for around $30. With price in mind, I can't be overly critical unless there are major faults in the design, which there aren't. This popcorn machine does exactly what it was designed to do, and that is to give you enough popcorn to make you think you are actually at the cinema. This popcorn machine can produce around 6 quarts of popcorn in five minutes -- it does not mess around.

The West Bend Stir 82306X 6-Quart electric popcorn machine has a number of nice features which make it a serious candidate if you are looking for a family serving popcorn popper. The motor driven stirring rod works to ensure that every kernel gets popped, and when the popcorn machine is done, the machine stops automatically so you have no burnt popcorn. This is an advantage to note, since a common complaint made against stove top popcorn machines is that the popcorn burns easily if you do not keep a close eye things. The designers of the West Bend Stir 82306X also had the neat idea of turning the cover into a bowl in which to hold the popcorn. Now that is what I call thinking outside the box!

As for the taste, well, to my refined pallet, the taste is not quite as good as the taste you get from the stove top popcorn machines. However, many say the popcorn tastes just as good as that produced by a stove top, and as stated, stove top popcorn machines have drawbacks of their own, notably unease of cleaning and burning. I said I would not be overly picky, so I am going to give this popcorn machine the thumbs up on taste.

Finally, when it's time to clean up, rest assured that this popcorn machine is very easy to clean. You can wipe it down with a damp sponge, and the machine surfaces do make for all round easy cleaning.

In summary, this modern solution for producing popcorn has little to fault it. It's a great value popcorn machine which will give you volume quality popcorn in no time at all, and it has a lot of great features.
