I have the directions for this; send me your address and I'll mail you a copy or I could probably just I have a Presto Caramel Corn'r. These are the directions:
You need a large mixing spoon, wax paper and the following ingredients:
2 T cooking oil
¼ c popcorn

¼ c butter or margarine
½ c brown sugar
2 T light corn syrup
¼ t salt

1/8 t soda

Then follow these steps
1) Pour cooking oil and popcorn into the unit base. Place cover on base. Plug cord into base and then into wall outlet. The signal light will glow when unit is heating. When popping is completed, the signal light will go out indicating that the heat has shut off automatically. Unplug the cord from the wall outlet. Tip unit upside down so popped corn falls into cover. Set cover with popped corn aside. You may want to use a paper towel to remove excess oil and unpopped corn or hulls from the base before making caramel sauce. NOTE: I pop corn for all the batches I intend to make first then do the next steps because you don’t have to clean it each time to make a new batch.
2) To make caramel sauce, combine butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and salt in the base. Plug into wall outlet. Heat mixture stirring constantly until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally for three minutes. Unplug cord from outlet and unit.
3) Place the mixing band on the base. Add baking soda and stir until mixture is evenly colored, light and foamy. Add popped corn, stirring to evenly coat with caramel sauce. Remove mixing band. Pour caramel coated corn onto wax paper and separate kernels. Let stand a few minutes before serving. Wash unit before popping more corn.

Can I use popcorn butter in the popcorn maker


IF YOU PUT BUTTER IN FOR POPPING CYCLE IT WILL BURN. BUTTER IS ADDED WHEN MAKING CARMEL CORN WHILE POPPING INSTEAD OF THE COATING THE CORN AFTER IT IS POPPED METHOD BUT, IT IS ADDED LATER NOT WHEN YOU WOULD PUT OIL IN.

WAIT! Do not add any oil or butter. I don't know what kind of machine you have, but only POPCORN goes inside the Popcornnow. I have an old one that melts butter on the top cover, although I don't recommend that. I recommend butter in the microwave. Repeat: DO NOT ADD OIL where the popcorn goes or you will set a fire.

I have a presto hot air corn popper and can't remember how to use it, particularly hot much corn to put into the popper. The model number is 01/pni. Could you please help me as soon as possible, as I...


Does your popper have a butter melting cup at the top? (The one we had years ago did.) Remove that cup from the popper and fill it with the unpopped kernels. (Fill loosely to level with the rim of the cup or less. Do not pack the kernels into the cup or overfill.) Then pour the kernels into the poppiing chamber. There should also be a fill line inside the popping chamber that indicates the maximum amount of popcorn to put in the chamber. Then put the measuring cup/butter melter back on the top of the popper.

The manual for the current Presto Hot Air Popper is available as a PDF from the Presto site. The list of all their popcorn makers is here: http://www.gopresto.com/products/products_search.php?search_value=37&operation=Search&search_type=category . To find the manual click on the hot air popper and scroll down, the user's guide is listed under the parts/accessories available for sale. The current one looks identical to the one that my family had ~20 years ago.

I hope this helps.

Bought Presto Poplite New Used Once Never Worked Again ?


Welcome to FixYa, If my solution meets your approval, I'd appreciate a good ranking. Regarding the popper, I read the owner's manual for this model and it is a very simple machine. I had thought that there might me some type of interlock or switch that might be at fault for the malfunction but they don't. It seems that the unit is just filled with popcorn, plugged in and within two or three minutes you should have popcorn.

  • If you haven't already, try plugging the unit into another outlet.
  • If the unit is in an area with a G.F.I. outlet (these are rectangular and have a reset switch that can pop and make the outlet dead) check the outlet and if needed reset it by pushing the red button back in.
The good news is that Presto is a very old company with a great reputation for customer service. Their warranty is 2 years, but if you explain the situation and the unit is more than two years old, they may repair it for nothing. You would be responsible for the shipping. In fact, their warranty says to return it and just indicate the date purchased. They don't even require a receipt. They can be contacted at:

Service Department weekdays 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM (Central Time) at 1-800-877-0441

Finally, just in case you don't have the user's manual any longer, it can be viewed and saved at the following link:

Thanks again for allowing me to assist!
