Decades ago, street vendors would sell fresh popped popcorn from carts. The Nostalgia Popcorn Maker captures this old-fashioned method in new products -- with poppers that look like vintage carts. The popcorn maker comes in a variety of sizes, but the operation is virtually the same. Popcorn oil heats up until the kernels pop. You can make almost any kind of popcorn in the popper; just add seasonings or flavours when popping is completed.

Set the Nostalgia Popcorn Maker on a sturdy, flat surface near an electrical socket. With the switch off, plug in the machine.
Pour 1 tbsp vegetable oil per 1/4 cup of popcorn kernels into the suspended metal popper. Pour in the popcorn kernels. Close the lid on the metal popper.
Plug in the popcorn maker and close the door. Press the "On" switch.
Watch the popcorn popper. The amount of time it takes to pop the kernels depends on how much you are making. For example, 1/4 cup of kernels takes two to three minutes to pop. Once you hear the popping slow down, turn off the popper.
Open the door and scoop out the popcorn.
