Family Day with Hamilton Beach #HBSocialKitchen #Giveaway


Weekends mean family movie night, but I think this long weekend calls for something bigger and better. Family day, after all, is about sneaking in some extra special family time with the kids. While getting out sounds like fun, after being gone so much now that I am working again I feel that a little winter nesting is in order.

For the Family Day long weekend my middle daughter has requested a Chronicles of Narnia marathon and all I can think is – heck yeah! I’m all in for a full day of snuggling in front of my fake fireplace, with a big bowl of popcorn on my lap, enjoying a good movie with the kids. Now that I have the best popcorn popper around, thanks to Hamilton Beach, we can enjoy Kettle Style Popcorn till our fingers are greasy and our tummies are full.

This isn’t your ordinary popcorn maker. The Kettle Style Popcorn Popper makes some of the best popcorn I have ever had. It’s perfect for those nights when you need a little or a lot of popcorn – it can pop up to 24 cups per batch! Best of all, no searching for a bowl big enough. The popcorn pops into it’s own large serving bowl, which I have discovered is designed for perfect popcorn seasoning. I can now butter, season, and then flip the popcorn right in the bowl without getting any popcorn on the floor, much to my pooch’s dismay.

The New Kettle Style Popcorn Popper has a unique kettle design that looks great on the counter-top. If counter space is at a premium then the top and bottom nest into each other for space-saving storage. Lastly the whole top opens for easy loading and cleaning, plus it’s dishwasher safe (although a good scrub is needed if you overcook some kernels).

When it comes to popcorn I’m a traditionalist. I like a little butter and salt, seasoning salt, or my chicken seasoning on occasion. If you like to switch things up though I highly recommend checking out these posts by Pink Chai Living, and How to Survive Life in the Suburbs. One last tip: When making the popcorn try switching up the oils you use. Try coconut, peanut, sunflower, canola, soy or a combination of any two. You’d be surprised how much the oil can change the taste of the popcorn. Our favourite combo right now is a 50/50 sesame/canola mix.

  1. Never in a million years would I have thought about changing the oil to receive a different flavour of popcorn!! This appliance looks nice and I bet the popcorn smells and tastes amazing. Thank you for the opportunity.

    1. Oh it really does smell amazing. The different oils are a subtle taste, but you can tell the difference. I’m sure it must be a combo of oils they use in the theaters. I think I’m getting close to the recipe. 🙂

  2. Looks delicious! I too am a traditional popcorn flavour girl but my Husband loves truing out new flavours. I’ll have to check out some recipes. I remember popping fresh corn as child and all gathering round the TV for TGIF. You remember, Family Matters and Full House lol Thanks for a fun review and giveaway!

    1. LOL My kids are currently working their way through Full House on Netflix, last month it was Fresh Prince of Bell Air! We love those old shows! I do miss TGIF and The wonderful world of Disney on Sunday nights.

  3. This popcorn maker looks awesome. My husband is always making popcorn on the stove. This would be way safer.
