NEW AND IMPROVED DESIGN! Now with silicone handle instead of glass for more durability. 

Catamount Glass Microwave Popcorn Popper is the tasty, economical, and healthy alternative to microwavable popcorn bags.

With Catamount's Microwave Popcorn Popper, making healthy and delicious popcorn is simple. Pour your kernels of choice into the 2.5 quart container, place your desired amount of butter in the silicone melting lid, and microwave for 2 minutes and 45 seconds. As the butter melts, it will drip through the lid and evenly coat the kernels as they pop.

The Microwave Popcorn Popper is made from borosilicate (laboratory glass) and is dishwasher safe. The large glass handle becomes warm, but not hot, for easy transfer to bowls.

  • Dimensions: 7.5" tall x 6" diameter (3.5" long handle)
  • Silicone melting lid (4" wide) lets you control the amount of butter added
  • Stay-cool handle for easy transportation
  • Popping time: 2 minutes 45 seconds (approx.)
  • Makes 2.5 quarts per popping session (1/2 cup of kernels)
  • Materials: Borosilicate (laboratory glass) and the silicone is food grade FDA approved
  • Dishwasher safe
  • All inks are non-toxic and lead free

Made in China, assembled in Bennington, Vermont

Review by Anonymous on 3/5

I bought my catamount at a yard sale for $3.00. The BEST investment in a long time. I burnt the first batch, but, have been using that baby 3-4 times a day. Yea, I'll probably make myself sick, but this is the best popcorn popper I've ever used. Fast & delicious. I was really surprised how goooooood it is.

It does a great job popping pop corn. It's easy to clean. You will need an oven mitt to take it out. But, it just barley fits in or microwave--we have to take the turn table out to use it so its not so convenient in that regard.

Review by Judy on 7/5

I like this corn popper, you just have one thing to wash; its a nice size foe two people, and you don't have to use a lot of butter to get a good flaver without being oily.
The only thing bad is that it does not pop all the kernals, and I always purchase organic popcorn, which is expensive to waste.
The handle gets hot where it is attached, you have to use a pot holder, and I pick it up with both hands on each side.
All said I would still purchase this popper.

Review by Diana Ranly on 6/25

This is the BEST way to make popped corn! For a vegan, bagged popcorn was always suspicious to me. And why eat all those preservatives then throw one more unnecessary piece of trash away? All around, I only used bagged microwave popcorn for the convenience. And this is even easier -- and a lot tastier and cheaper.

I put Earth Balance in the lid and then sprinkle the whole bowlful with nutritional yeast and sea salt. It tastes like slightly cheesy buttered popcorn. Sublime!

I would also like to report that my 80-pound mixed breed dog also loves it. This surprised me. She would never touch the bagged popcorn -- even with nutritional yeast on top. I wonder just what is in bagged microwave popcorn she hates? So we get to share a bowl while watching Rachel Maddow.

I do agree that the handle could be more sturdy. I'm thinking of getting these for my family this Christmas (6 households) -- and a sturdier handle would certainly seal the deal.

Review by MaryAnne Izzo on 3/30

Let me first say the customer service at Mighty Nest is outstanding...five star. I ordered (several) of the Catamount poppers each of them broke at the handle. Finally, I called customer service and realized through that conversation there was a design flaw in the larger size as many customrs were experiencing the same disappointment with the product. Amy Riseborough was fabulous and suggested we try the smaller version without the handle. Love it! We use it every single night. Crunchy delicious and healthy. Easy clean-up. No worries about breaking. I have sent many friends to your sight and will continue to do so.

Review by CarolineH on 6/26

I really love how green this set up is. Everything washes easily in the dishwasher, and no plastic! The only downside is that it doesn't make very much popcorn at a time. Enough for one person. And it takes my microwave about 3 minutes to pop 1/4 cup kernels. So to make enough for a family of 4 will take you about 12 minutes.

Review by Marlene Linton on 6/4

I ordered 3 of these (one for each of my adult children and their families) I'm in the process of ordering for gifts....wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!!

Review by AJ on 5/16

When I use this, it barely pops any of the kernels. It seems like a great idea but doesn't work well in my microwave.

Review by BethAnn on 4/20

I've only used it a few times and have been disappointed. I put in 2 oz. of popcorn and butter on top. Fortunately, we have a rather large microwave because it just fits.

We didn't get a lot of popcorn and we had a LOT of unpopped kernels left over.

I will continue to adjust amounts of popcorn and cooking time, as well as adding butter at the end (good idea!). I haven't given up yet!

Review by Jim M. on 5/11

I was happy to find this glass popcorn popper in a store, but I've had the same disappointing results as BethAnn.

There are too many unpopped kernels, no matter how I adjust the time -- or, the amount of oil -- or, the amount of popcorn -- or, the power level of the microwave.

If someone knows the perfect combination, please let us know. Thanks.

P.S. I does clean up nicely, though.
