What is Whirley Pop?

The Whirley Pop is a stovetop popcorn popper which is famous for being easy to use and efficient popping capabilities. It contains a pot with a handle and a crank attached to the lid. The pot is made of stainless steel or aluminium and has a special coating to prevent the popcorn from sticking.

To prepare Whirley Pop’s popcorn, add oil and popcorn kernels to the pot, then heat it on the stove. As the pot heats up, turn the crank handle that rotates the metal blades inside the pot. It ensures that the oil and heat are spread evenly, resulting in uniform popping.

Storing and Freezing

Ensure that the popcorn is cooled completely before you store and freeze it.

Make sure to transfer the popcorn into an air-tight container like a glass or plastic jar fitted with a tight lid. Also, ensure that the container doesn’t contain too much air or oxygen because that can make the popcorn go stale quickly.

For freezing the popcorn, ensure that the container you are using for freezing is freezer-safe. Spread the popcorn in a single layer on a baking sheet and let it freeze for an hour. This stops the kernels from sticking together when you store them for the long run.

Once frozen, you can put the popcorn in the air-tight container and put it back in the freezer.

You can freeze the popcorn for several months.  


In conclusion, the Whirley Pop recipe offers a great way to prepare tasty popcorn at home easily. The Whirley pop maker provides a great stirring mechanism that ensures perfectly popped kernels every time, without any burnt or unpopped kernels.

So, whether you are relaxing at home, watching a movie or craving a snack the Whirley Pop can help you make the perfect popcorn.
