POPCORN ANYONE?

Remember making popcorn in one of these?
It's the Jr Chef "See-it-Pop" Popcorn Popper.
Like the Easy Bake Oven...it operates using a 100 watt light bulb!


 We sure had fun with this!
It's been in our family since the '60's!
Home popped popcorn & the" Ed Sullivan Show"...oh the days!

You still have time to sign up for my "Blue Monday" Giveaway!

I remember these Carrie, but I didn't have one. You even have the box! I had an easy bake oven though. My girls still have theirs.
Blessings,

Never had or saw one of these. It's all new to me! We had a hot air corn popper though when my kids were growing up. I LOVED the Ed Sullivan show though. One of our fav parts of Sunday evening, next to Bonanaza and Disney!

An old friend of mine had one of those and we had many times of fun just watching the pop corn "pop". :) Oh, yes, and lots of fun eating them. lol

I remember the commercial for this. Amazing that you still have it! We were big fans of Jiffy Pop!! It was like magic to see it pop when we were kids!!

I have my fingers crossed about the giveaway!!

I forgot all about those popcorn poppers, but oh,the memories when I saw yours. We thought we were on the cutting edge when we got ours at home. Thanks for the fun memory.

Can't wait to see who wins your lovely creation.

Hmm. I've never seen this cutie before. In the Netherlands popcorn is not as popular as it is in the US. Love your colorful picture! Have a wonderful weekend.

I love vintage appliances. We never had those in Australia - what a great product and more interesting that using a saucepan as you can see it pop.

Elyse said...

happy popping!

I didn't have one of these--looks like fun!
I loved the Ed Sullivan show too,
my fav character was the little mouse that Ed tucked into bed.
Not attempting to spell the mouse's name.
Oh, the memories...

I remember those,along with Easy Bake ovens. I think I had one of those for my daughter. Probably worth something now!

Diane said...

OMG is that the one we used growing up? Does it still work? Gotta love it!

Just Breathe said...

I'm older then you but I don't remember one with a light bulb!
We always made popcorn on the stove.

grammy said...

I don't remember seeing one of those. Growing up, we used a pan with a lid on the stove and shook it back and firth over the gas fire. It worked. Yours is very cute (o:
My little Grands love the air popper..they laugh a lot while it is popping.

Janean said...

CARRIE! I may just have to come to California in person to THANK YOU for the information about paper piecing. Finally, I may be able to make a quilt! I watched the tutorial. Thank you for the link. I had never heard of this popping machine. Imagine that your family with so many children kept this in such great condition all of these years. It's wonderful! Have a great week ahead! Elizabeth

Tracy said...

Wow! I've never seen one of these before. How fun! = )

Leslie said...

I remember my mom having a popcorn popper.. we used it all of the time!!! I still love popcorn!!!

Lynn said...

I used to watch "Ed Sullivan". Who could forget the Beatles debut! Never really like Ed but it was what was on Sunday night and my parents watched it so did I. Mom used to make cheese and crackers as a snack while we watched. I don't remember that popper. I only ate popcorn at the movies until I was in junior high and then we had the aluminum pans with the long handles that you moved around the burner. Sounded like fireworks when all those kernals started popping away in the aluminum popper!
Nice memories!

The Strawberry Mallard said...

Ahhhhhhhhh....memories....the simple life...wonder how many kids today have ever seen clips of it?

The B&W t.v.......the 8 or 9 channels...WITHOUT remote or cable....
I miss it ;o)

How fun! I remember the Ed Sullivan Show, too.

Amy said...

We didn't have one of these. Back then we used to pop our corn in a pan with a little bit of oil. I too used to love to watch the Ed Sullivan show. Funny we had only 3 channels back then and I so looked forward to watching whatever was on. Now I feel like we have TV overload. As a whole the quality is lacking. Am I sounding old?

Cathy said...

I haven't seen one of those corn poppers in years. Hard to believe that a light bulb can pop the corn. The whole family used to watch Ed Sullivan on Sunday nights. What great memories.
