About Knapp-Monarch Corn Poppers

Knapp Monarch made very high quality poppers, all with the popping bowl permanently attached to a heavy duty, sealed heating element (known as a two-piece popper, the bowl/base and the lid). We offer several versions for sale, and they all have the same heating element regardless of external styling.


Knapp-Monarch 2.5 Quart Popcorn Popper - Early model

This early model has "stand-off" handles; made of turned walnut. The body sits on a lantern ring base, This model is shown in a print ad from 1940 but I'll bet it was also in production in the late 1930s.

This two-piece model is in very good condition, comes with a facsimile of original instructions and our instructions and detachable cord set. It is ready to make fresh, fragrant popcorn for your family, friends and neighbors.

Knapp-Monarch Popcorn Popper with Pyrex Lid

When we first opened this model for service, we were surpised by the high quality of components -- an expensive sealed ceramic type heating element (something rarely found on other poppers) and the precision made pressed steel assembly to house the internal parts. Even the exterior is high quality with large brown Bakelite feet and oversize Bakelite handles which attach to a reinforcing plate on the wall of the cooking well.

This one is in excellent condition and has a Pyrex lid which is a replacement of the original. It comes with the original art silk cord set and a facsimile of the original instructions.
