Two of my most used, most valuable kitchen gadgets have broken in the past week. As mom always said, things happen in three. I have been waiting for the third gizmo to call it quits, but so far, so good.
The first causality was my Whirly Pop popcorn popper. Luckily, it broke just as it was done popping. The only bad thing was the little gear thingy that broke off ended up in my popcorn. I found it without breaking any teeth, though. My in-house Whirly Pop popcorn popper repair person (say that three times fast) thought he would be able to fix it, but no, I have to get a new one.
