Since having our beautiful baby girl three and a half months ago, our movie theater nights have become non-existent. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting at the theater, watching a blockbuster hit, and eating hot, buttery, fresh popcorn that made us lick our fingers for more. The more I think about it, though, we were attending crowded movies while sitting in an uncomfortable theater surrounded by people we didn’t know, eating over-priced popcorn and drinking over-priced soda. A night at the movies for two was about $40 and forget about the cost of a babysitter. Enter the Waring Pro WPM40 Popcorn Maker and bring the movies home, literally.
Last night, I returned to North Carolina to our new Waring Pro Professional Popcorn Maker. Athena’s bed time came at 8pm and Big Brother was followed by Falling Skies. Instead of spending $40 at the theater, we spent the evening on our comfortable couch, watching two of our favorite summer shows, and eating fresh, hot, delicious popcorn buttered to our liking. In less than two minutes, we made a bucket of popcorn for the price of a few kernels at the theater. The heat lamp kept the popped corn warm and the door and pivoting kettle were easy to remove for cleaning.
Instead of taking up our cupboard space, we picked up the trolley and placed it in our living room adding the perfect nostalgic accent. Even if we didn’t like popcorn, which is the silliest statement I ever heard, we’d still love the look of the Waring Pro Professional Popcorn Maker.
With popcorn that tastes better than the what we get at the theater, our own comfy couch, and time to ourselves, we’re finding ways to combine our old life with our new one and we couldn’t be happier.
I was looking for something like this for our movie room! I’m going to look at the website now. Great find.
We really love it! It’s certainly getting lots of use already.
LOVE IT! Totally want one. Sending the link to my boyfriend now.
This’ll make a good gift for my wife, and for me.
Wow that’s great!!!! I eat popcorn ALL the time. I’ll have to put it on my wish list. The best part of watching movies at home is that you don’t get embarrassed if you fall asleep and there’s no line-ups in the restrooms.
Enjoy it guys!!!
Thanks, Melanie! It would make a great Christmas gift 🙂
I love it!
Wow that is soooo kewl!!!! Hubby and I rarely go to the theater!! What’s nice about home is you can pause it for snack breaks or rest room breaks!! I absolutely love your pop corn maker!! Awesome!!!! Hugz Blondie and Boo Bear
HI Lesley — what a cool idea!! My kids would absolutely love, love, love something like this. We feel the same way about the expense and lack of homey comforts at dirty, dark movie theaters. And after the events of last Friday in Auroro, CO, we are not likely to venture out again anytime soon. This popcorn maker might be the perfect answer. Also, thanks so much for following my posts – I love getting ‘likes’ 🙂
I’ll check back again soon, Julie.
Have a great weekend,
Wonderful! I want one! I made popcorn in our microwave for the first time recently – four minutes later I smelled burning! Not good! x
So jealous. I’ve always wanted a popcorn machine to complete the movie room but my wife hates popcorn so we never got one 🙁 Seeing yours makes me think I need anew wife!
lol, maybe just ask for it as a gift 😉
