Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, the Cookworks retail and online electronics store used to put its moniker on a "Signature Silver" home popcorn machine, a device that popped up to 10 cups of popcorn with the flip of a single switch.

The company, in 2010, sells a cuisinart one-switch popper that pops the same amount in about the same amount of time. Both operate under the same conditions.
