Sometimes one never knows how a "Yankee Swap" will turn out based on the number chosen and when all the gifts are open. So, during this past Christmas exchange, I selected a a wrapped gift that was a small air popper and a jar of popcorn. No one "swapped" with me, and I am thrilled that no one did. This air popper is the bomb! The popcorn is fresh and there is no sticky mess with oils or butter. Kind of old-fashion, if you will. A few tablespoons of kernels and this mighty contraption literally pumps out a large bowl of freshly popped lighter-than-air popcorn. I'd say this is a winner and keeper as long as it keeps working!
