Lift the handle up and add approximately 1/2 cup of popcorn kernels into the bottom of the popper. Lower the handle so the lid covers the popper, then turn the crank clockwise for approximately three minutes or until the majority of the popcorn kernels have popped.
Keeping this in view, can I put butter in my Whirley Pop?
Recommended oils are our Classic Blend Popping Oil (a blend of coconut and canola oils), peanut, corn, canola, or even Green Tea oil. Not recommended is butter or olive oil. These will smoke and burn even at medium temperatures, and you will be disappointed.
In this manner, can I use Whirley Pop without oil?

Can you use real butter in a popcorn machine?
Yes. I put 2 tablespoons of butter and 1/4 cup of popcorn in the bottom of the popper and pop until the popping slows down. It does nothing to harm the popper and as long as you don’t overpop, the popcorn will not burn. 27 of 27 found this helpful.
Add kernels and oil.
Most neutral cooking oils will work well for stirring popcorn makers. For example, vegetable oil, canola oil, sunflower oil, and coconut oil are all great choices. Don’t use margarine or an oil with a low smoke point — these can burn and give your popcorn an unappealing smoky taste.
We also love adding spice to the mix, like cayenne pepper, smoked paprika or ancho chile powder. Don’t be afraid to turn your popcorn into a sweet treat, either. Try adding powdered sugar or brown sugar to your popcorn along with warming spices like cinnamon, nutmeg or cloves.

I’ve used this Whirley Popper several times, and it’s just lovely. It looks good, the wooden handle and crank feel good in the hand, the smoothness of the turning mechanism feels good; it’s well-crafted and it’s obvious. Wonderful. See far too little of that these days.
