We recently featured a convenient Microwave Popper ($20), and we were left thinking, "Can't we hit two birds with one stone here?" For twice the price, sure. The deluxe Kettle Krazy Popcorn Popper and Nut Roaster ($41) by West Bend looks like something straight out of the 1950s, and we love the party display going on. The electric 6-quart capacity is impressive, and its motorized stir rod keeps kernels or nuts in constant motion, safe from getting charred. Since the lid doubles as a popcorn bowl, it's super easy to get our snack on.
