Popping popcorn at home never seems to end up as hassle-free as you’d think it would be. Our first choice is usually to reach for the microwave popcorn, which is quick, but is usually coated in a lot of not-so-good-for-you artificial flavorings, not to mention the fact that one bag never seems to be enough for the whole family. Or you can get out the electric popper or the air popper, and make your movie treats from raw kernels. That gives you complete control over flavoring and serving sizes, but that takes longer and leaves you with bulky dishes coated in butter or oil that will need to be hand-washed.
The Lékué PopCorn Maker splits the difference between the methods, offering the convenience of microwave popping with the creative culinary control of popping from raw kernels. Choose exactly how much popcorn to make and what to top it with, while getting from the kitchen to the couch in just a couple of minutes. And when you’re done popping, the Lékué PopCorn Maker can go right into the dishwasher. When cleaned, it collapses for easy storage. The included recipe book includes assorted ideas for gourmet flavors you might never have though of, like the honey-and-peanut-topped option we made in the video below. At only $20, the Lékué PopCorn Maker makes a great gift for the movie-fanatic, health-conscious snacker, or college student in your life. Get the Lékué PopCorn Maker here, and get popping!
