Product Test: We bought the Presto Power Pop Bowl at WalMart for $10. It promises to help you make popcorn quickly and easily.
Our tester Nicole actually really liked how the bowl worked; just add the corn and oil, put the cardboard applicator in the bottom of the bowl and microwave according to directions.
It worked great. The popcorn tasted great. no problems. Except for the fact that you need that cardboard applicator every time you make popcorn.
Which means to have to buy them and keep them on hand. They're not too expensive, 8 for $5 or so, but the point is - without it - you can't make the popcorn.
Our tester thought that was a big downside. What do you think?
