Expoxy is the best choice but if the bowl is broken, crazy glue might be better. I could use a better idea of how its broken to give you a better answer

Can I use oil in hot air popcorn popper to better taste


No, oil and butter should not be used in the popcorn maker. You can melt some butter or buy a flavored oil to drizzle on top once the popcorn is done and in a bowl. But nothing should go inside the maker except popcorn kernels.

Popcorn machine doesnt heat high


Popcorn needs 400F to pop, if you machine is not hot enough it will not pop popcorn.
You did not include very much information to help fix it, but if it is a home use popper, you cannot repair anything on them.
A true commercial popper you can replace thermostats, and fix the problem.

We have a Back To Basics popcorn popper that has a broken piece. The piece is the clear see-through plastic top. Where can we find a new piece?


West Bend took over this company and no longer provides plastic window replacements. I fixed mine by super gluing the window and attaching a small strip of wood on top of the 2 plastic window pieces with small bolts (super glue pieces so wood can be properly attached because glue alone will not hold up to the heat). Not attractive but it works. (West Bend rep told me windows break because of high heat, but I only used mine over medium heat; I think they break at the spot where the raised lid hits the gear mechanism holder.)

I only ned the bowl for my stircrazy popcorn popper. Is it possible to buy one and the cost please.


We can't sell you the bowl at Fixya as we only can help with instructions and so on. What I can help you with is where and who to contact about the bowl.

I believe your popper is made by WestBend. So you have a couple of choices. You can look for a repair shop that will have replacement parts. These are not that common these days but they are around. You can search on the net for them and I would talk to the store you purchased the popper from and ask where you can get parts. They may have a local repair depot that will be able to help. If that doesn't get you a source then you need to try Westbend.

Go to http://westbend.com/ and click on the support tab. Then click on replacement parts then Westbend and then popcorn popper. Select your model and it should now display all available parts. Unfortunetly the replacment parts tend to be power cords and covers so there may not be a bowl available for your model. It is still worth using the Westbend contact information and asking if they have one just in case.

Aside from other sources such as ebay or thrift shops you may not be able to find a bowl. And what you have to keep in mind is the replacement cost of the bowl plus shipping if you can find one. You may find that you will have to buy a new popper as it would cost less than getting the bowl.

I purchased a nordic microwave popcorn maker and misplaced the directions for making the popcorn. I need to know how much popcorn to put in the bowl and amount of oil if any is to be used. I would...


The Nordicware Popcorn Popper is one that actually works in the microwave. The 3-Qt. Popper makes light and fluffy popcorn in about 4 minutes. Just place 1/2-cup of popcorn kernels in the bottom bowl and cover with the lid. No oil needed, makes up to 12 cups of popped corn. Good luck Richard

The manual says to put 1 to 3 tablespoons of oil in the popper, and when hot, add 1/2 cup popcorn. Salt it after dumping the popped corn into a bowl.

Lost the instructions for a nordic ware microwave corn popper


1. Pour up to 1/3 cup of popcorn kernels in the base of the Popcorn Popper.
2. The use of oil is optional, but not necessary. If desired, drizzle a small amount of vegetable oil over the unpopped kernels, then stir to coat the kernels.
3. Place cover on the base bowl. Cook on High in the microwave for approximately 3-5 minutes (microwave ovens vary tremendously!), or until popping slows down. Allow Popcorn Popper to cool before repeated use. Do not try to re-pop unpopped kernels.
4. Hand washing is recommended, but occasional washing in the top rack of a dishwasher is acceptable for the bowl, but not the lid.
5. If popcorn burns easily or does not pop well, try placing a shallow bowl, dish or plate upside down on the microwave turntable to raise the popcorn popper up a bit.
