Question about Cuisinart CPM-800 Popcorn Maker
My popping plate is not getting hot. The stirring rod is rotating so I assume the plate is locked in properly, however after several minutes (10 +) of stirring, the plate is still cold. Could there be something wrong with the unit? It worked the first few times I used it.
Remember the strirring rod connects to the motor, but the heating element connects via the two prongs in the rear, so the motor can run without the heating element turned on (turn on the base without the plate on...the motor runs fine). Try reattaching the plate...it needs a good connection to the connectors in the back. It should heat up pretty quickly. Also, if you put the heating pad in the dishwasher, make sure it is dry and that the contacts aren't tarnished.
I'm certain over time the contacts will get loose and the popper will stop working, but our is going fine after a year.
Also, be careful not to drop the base...lots of cheap, hard plastic that will break and rattle around.

Place an enamel-coated cast iron Dutch oven (such as one from Le Creuset) on medium-high heat. Add 1 teaspoon vegetable oil and 3 popcorn kernels. Cover it and let it heat up. Don’t shake it or anything. Wait until the three kernels pop, then pour in 1/2 cup popcorn. Stir to coat kernels in oil, then cover and leave the whole thing alone. When popping slows down to one pop every few seconds, remove from heat, uncover and pour into serving bowl. Cue melted butter and salt. Eat.
