The instructions for the CCP-509 are not specific about the quantity of oil and kernels to use. The instructions for the CCP-510 are clearer, stating that for every measuring cup full of kernels ( 4 oz.) add 2 tablespoons of light vegetable oil.
Depends on your machine. What bran/model dso you have? If it is an air popper, NO. Adding anything will damage the machine.
If your machine is not an air popper then you likely need to add some oil. I currently have a WestBend Stir Crazy Popcorn Popper. You use a tablespoon of oil for each 1/4 cup of popcorn in the bottom of the popper. See here; an instruction manual is available.
You are best to check with the manufacturer of your popccorn popper.
I have one with the instructions. Its 1/4 vegetable oil and 1/2 or 2/3 cup popcorn. It says not to exceed 1/4 oil and not to use butter, margarine, or lard because it can smoke. It also says if using gormet popcorn, only use 1/2 cup to prevent cover from lifting. Hope this helps. :)
I had the same problem when I firs bought mine. I followed the instructions as to the proportion of corn to oil. Forget the book! I found that with this machine I had to use three times the oil that was caled for in the instructions to get all of the corn to pop. Better yet, we started purchasing the premade kits with the oil, popcorn and salt. Since changing to both of these systems we have enjoyed GREAT ppcorn!
