Atom Pop Corn Popper
The cool, conical aluminum stove top appliance burst onto the market in 1952. Made on spin lathes originally used to manufacture aircraft parts during World War II, the popper resembles a mini wok with sloped sides that force the fluffy corn up and away from the unpopped kernels.
The packaging graphics — taken from the original marketing flier — heralds the appliance as the original “no shake, no stir” corn popper. The flier adds it is “never too pooped to pop.”
