This thing is the shizz diggity.. it is made with a good silicone material so has held up quite well to 7 kids using it mulitple times a day! I am especially impressed with how easily it can be cleaned and that it is microwave safe!!! and for those of you who save your popcorn to eat later like us, the lid makes it great for storing. it is easily stored in many places because it is collapsible!!! I will be buying more of these to give as christmas gifts for sure!
