Giveaway: Catamount Glass Microwave Popcorn Popper (no wasteful bags or chemicals)



I have stood in many a store, in the kitchenwares section, staring at various needed items in despair.  Take a simple muffin pan.  It took me months to find one not made with some sort of teflon non-stick coating. My mind hums with questions while searching for safe, green and healthy items for the kitchen.  Is it plastic?  Is it non-stick?  Safer alternatives are hard to find.  

Until now!  I don’t have to face these dilemas in big box stores anymore.  
MightyNest has launched a kitchenware collection.  It is loaded with safer items free of concerning chemicals and materials such as Teflon, BPA, lead, aluminum, and melamine.  You’ll find glass bakewareceramic cookwarestainless steel cooking essentialsglass dishwarecanning jars and more.

To celebrate, I’ve teamed with MightyNest for a giveaway. It’s been a long time since I’ve done one of these! I am a big fan of popcorn. To avoid the chemicals (and the waste) in popcorn bags, I stand at the stove and cook popcorn in a pot. I’ve often ended up with burnt popcorn, and in one case, a melted fleece jacket. Thankfully, MightyNest now carries a microwave Glass Popcorn Popper.  According to MightyNest:

“With Catamount’s Microwave Popcorn Popper, making healthy and delicious popcorn is simple. Pour your kernels of choice into the 2.5 quart container, place your desired amount of butter in the silicone melting lid, and microwave for 2 minutes and 45 seconds. As the butter melts, it will drip through the lid and evenly coat the kernels as they pop.

The Microwave Popcorn Popper is made from borosilicate (laboratory glass) and is dishwasher safe. The large glass handle becomes warm, but not hot, for easy transfer to bowls.”

Yum! Are you a popcorn fan?  Add a comment to this post for a chance to win.  Extra entries for tweeting the contest, following us on Twitter, and posting on Facebook (just let me know in the comments!).  Don’t forget to leave your email address in a spam unfriendly way so I can contact you if you win.  
Good luck!  Contest runs May 11- 18th.

      That sounds GREAT! We too moved to popping corn on the stove a couple years ago, but it can be a real pain sometimes. I’d love to try this one.

      I LOVE popcorn and, after burning my beautiful all-clad pot, I don’t want to make it anymore. I never knew this existed! It would be a GREAT way to make (healthy) popcorn!!
