I have found the plastic window online at the Back to Basic Company web site.
http://www.focuselectrics.com
I ordered two. They were $2.00 each plus shipping.
I navigated to the parts area, to the popcorn. Here is the link. http://www.focuselectrics.com/catalog.cfm?dest=itempg&itemid=3678&secid=53&linkon=category&linkid=90
Hope this helps.

NO you can't get a replacement window for B2B popper. The current models they make don't even have one at all, and the manufacturer is in denail they ever made it. I know because mine's broken too and they blew me off a couple years ago when i tried. Made me mad

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.)

Need window in lid of Back to Basics popcorn poper, about 15 years old


Melanie322 - you wanna sell me your other window? :-)
Apparently West Bend bought all that company, and they do not list a replacement plastic window.

The plastic window on my stainless steel stovetop popper broke right under the middle screw, so I went to the hardware store and got a big nylon washer and put it under the screw. It ain't pretty, but it hold the little window up...

No instructions but wanting to know where do you put in the butter for the back to basic stove top popper


The manual says, place butter in cup, hook cup onto the rim of the pan below the "butter cup"marking on the lid, and the butter will melt and drip evenly onto the popcorn as it pops. I haven't tried it; hope it works for you.
