re: popcorn popper

Been using these microwave popcorn bowls for around 15 years ...

I used to use a kitchen scale to measure my ingredients exactly.  Now I just throw stuff into the bowl without measuring.

My recipe for perfect popcorn is ...

Place the following in the microwave popcorn bowl ...

4 oz of premium popcorn
1/4 to 1/2 ounce of Lite Salt,  This salt has a flavor that I like.    (Or salt after you pop it.  If you add the salt before you pop it, then you need more salt because at least half of it will end up in the bottom of the bowl.) 
2 oz of canola oil.  (Oil will cover popcorn and salt.   After dozens of uses, the oil will give the bowl a yellow color.)

It takes about 3 to 4 minutes to microwave.
