Instructions for Use
Seasoning Instructions: First Time Use
Wash the pan fresh out of the box. Then Season it by doing the following:
Pour a tablespoon of vegtable oil into the pan
Tilt and roll the pan to coat the bottom and sides
Heat for 20 seconds, or until oil is hot (do not leave pan unattended)
Remove from heat and allow to cool
wipe out with a paper towel
Pour ingredients in the popper, according to the measurements below. Use the proper combination of oil and popping corn.
Full batch of popcorn (6-quart, 24 cups): 1/2 cup popping corn* and 1-3 tablespoons oil
Partial batch of popcorn (1-quart, 4 cups): 1 tablespoon popping corn and 1 teaspoon oil
Because some gourmet hybrids, such as Baby White, Ladyfinger, or Baby Yellow, pop up smaller, you may need to add more popping corn to make a full batch.
As you become familiar with your Sweet & Easy, you may find you can reduce the amount of oil to as low as a single teaspoon, which reduces fat content.
Before placing the popcorn popper on your gas or electric stove, follow these instructions. If electric, preheat the burner to medium-high heat before placing the popper with ingredients on the burner. If gas, place popper with ingredients on burner and set to medium heat.
Hold the side handle with one hand and slowly turn the top crank in a clockwise direction with your other hand. Continue stirring like this through the entire process (about 3 minutes), until you only hear an occasional pop or until the crank becomes somewhat difficult to turn. DO NOT force the crank.
Remove from heat immediately. Open the lid flap (be cautious of steam), lock in place, and pour popped corn into a serving bowl. Let stand a minute or two to maximize crispiness. Add butter, salt, or your favorite seasonings and enjoy!
Frequently Asked Questions:
How do remove or attach the lid on my Sweet & Easy? Lid Removal: Your lid assembly should be affixed securely by 3 clips-one above the handle, the second directly across from the handle and the third located on the lid half. Make sure your popper is cool before trying to remove the lid. First release the small metal clip holding down the lid half. Then, while holding the black handle with one hand, use the other hand to pull the metal clip, located above the black handle, up gently and it will release from the pan. Continue lifting the lid and remove the entire lid assembly. Attaching The Lid: While sitting and centering the lid onto the pan, align the metal clip with the black handle. Then press down on the metal clip closest to the black handle, ensuring the clip completely snaps onto the pan. Next, press down on the lid half clip to lock onto the pan. Lastly press down on the metal clip directly across from the handle and lock onto the pan. The lid should now be securely attached to the pan and ready for popping.
