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

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.

Knapp-Monarch 2.5 Quart Redi Pop Automatic Corn Popper

This beauty has a spun aluminum base and bowl topped by a clear glass lid with pebble-textured top where it is signed twice with the "KM Corn Popper" in script. Both handles come to a point at a rakish angle. The gold-toned label on the front says "Automatic Redi Pop". It is the last model that Knapp-Monarch made, and they added the 'automatic' feature. It makes two and a half quarts of fresh, hot popcorn.

The neat thing about this popper is that it automatically shuts off the current when it reaches the end of the popping so you don't have to rush to empty it to avoid burning when the popping stops.

In like new condition, this one comes with instructions, recipes, hints, and detachable cord set.
