Low-Tech Factory Oncle Sam Popcorn Popper

By Aric Mitchell on December 3, 2012

You just have to know how everything works, do you? Well, put that theory to the test with the Oncle Sam from Low-Tech Factory. The contraption from designers Laurent Beirnaert, Pierre Bouvier, and Paul Tubiana takes the explosive multi-hatching of the traditional bowl of popcorn and breaks it down into a fully transparent, one-kernel-at-a-time process. While gear-heads may marvel at the craftsmanship, it may not be as appealing to those of us who like to grab fistfuls at a time of sweet buttery goodness.

On the other hand, it will cause one to savor and enjoy each piece of popcorn more so than the microwave or stove-top. Kernels are held in a reservoir that deploys the individual kernel to an open flame that results in the “pop.” The machine will even salt it for you when finished. Can’t pop top that.
