salbree silicone microwave popcorn popper

I have a confession – I eat a HUGE bowl of popcorn on my own at least once daily. 🍿

Some of you may be thinking, popcorn?!🤔 YES, and let’s review why I don’t feel guilty about it thanks to this silicone microwave popcorn popper. This little easy-to-store collapsible popcorn popper has completely changed the way I snack.

When I am craving something crunchy and satisfying, I just pop a batch of fresh popcorn in minutes instead of reaching for chips, pretzels, or other snack-y items.

Now is a great time to order because…

So what’s so great about this microwave popcorn popper anyway?

Besides this gadget being inexpensive, it is also super easy to use! You literally expand the popper to its full size, pour your popcorn kernels into the popper using the etched lines in the bottom of the bowl, place the lid on top, and place the popper in the microwave for about 3-4 minutes.

Better yet, it’s currently on sale!

Once the popcorn has popped, just grab the two silicone handles on the sides of the microwave popcorn popper, remove it from the microwave, and your snack is ready! So easy!

And the best part is that you get perfectly popped popcorn without using oil or butter while cooking (see my flavoring tips below!). And this popper makes a TON of popcorn – I usually get at least 8-10 cups of popped popcorn in one batch!

Once you’re done with the popper, just rinse it out with warm water (or throw it in the dishwasher!), let it dry, and collapse it down to store in a cabinet or drawer.

If you want to add some yummy flavor to your popcorn with little to no calories, consider grabbing coconut oil non-stick cooking spray and some popcorn salt. Once your popcorn is popped, spray the popcorn with the cooking spray, sprinkle with salt, and toss!

Or, if you have a jar of coconut oil on hand, add about a half teaspoon of coconut oil into the bowl with your popcorn kernels before cooking! So delicious and very few calories!

Don’t just take my word for it, check out these great Amazon reviews

putting silicone popcorn maker in microwave

“Hubs is a popcorn snob and will only eat what tastes fresh. I bought this for him as a possible replacement for the air popper. It is his favorite thing that he got this year for his birthday. I like it because it folds away easily into a drawer and frees up space in my kitchen.”


“This works well. I have had it for about two years. I have used secondhand air chute poppers, two different Nordicware microwave poppers (one I bought and later donated and one someone gave me), a glass microwave popper with a silicone handle and lid, and a brown paper bag. This is the best!”


“We are loving this microwave popcorn popper. It folds down to nothing and makes popcorn in no time. Loved it so much we bought additional ones for holiday gifts for family.”


“I was so impressed that my friend bought one for me as well. I got rid of my hot air popcorn maker and my popcorn machine which has now cleared the top of my kitchen counter of ‘extra’ appliances.”

I love that you can grab this microwave popcorn popper in a wide variety of colors, 23 different colors to be exact! So much fun. Grab one for yourself and maybe one as a gift for a friend, your movie night will be better than ever when you’re munching on freshly made popcorn!

Have you used a popper like this? Do you have any tips/tricks to add?

    I own one and really like mine. It’s easy to wash and it’s collapsible for easy storage

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! Super happy you are loving yours too!

  2. Lauren Gregerson

    I like this popper but it leaves so many unpopped kernels and if I try to go longer the already popper popcorn gets burnt. I

    • MaaMaaBear

      I usually serve the good ones and then pop the bottom stragglers after! lol!! But I really do love this popper despite the few kernels on the bottom! We toss it with EVOO and some pink sea salt!! Delish!!

    • Jess

      I have the same problem, and I haven’t tried this yet but I was reading different reviews just the other day and someone suggested heating the bowl for 1 minute empty first, then putting in your popcorn and popping as usual.
      Next time I make popcorn I plan on giving it a shot, thought I’d share!

  3. Jackie

    We have a similar one from pampered chef. I wonder how this one compares to the PC one. It looks very tall. If any Hip2Savers out there have both poppers let me know how they compare to each other. I could grab a second one to have if this one is better than PC

  4. Jennifer

    I have one of these and love it. My boys find it super easy to use as well, which is an added bonus. I like to reduce the power on my microwave to around 70% as I feel like it helps cut down on the number of unpopped kernels. If we are trying to make a lot of popcorn, we’ll do it in a few batches. A few added minutes, but a lot less unpopped kernels.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the tips, Jennifer! Good to know it has been easy to use!

  5. Elizabeth

    I have a Cuisinart one that is great. I use Flavacol Season Salt (like the kind they use in popcorn machines, and I get it at a restaurant supply place for cheap and lasts forever), and Kernel Seasons popcorn oil with it. A half a cup kernels, a bit of oil, and a half a tsp Flavacol salt, then pop it. Will never go back to bags.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      YUMMY! Thanks for sharing with us, Elizabeth!

  6. Kb

    I have 2 of these (one for work and one for home). I also have bought a few for gifts. We love them. Collapses so much smaller than my previous microwave popper and a lot less messy than an air popper.

  7. momof4boys

    We love this popper! We use it nearly every day.

  8. Karen B

    I bought this because I feel like bagged microwave popcorn leaves a weird film in my mouth. I don’t like it. This thing is the best!!! Easier than stove popcorn and no weird chemicals. I think the packaging says to not add any oil to the popper or it could melt so we don’t but its good to hear you probably can.

  9. jodee805

    Amazon has another brand for half the price with the same star rating. For $7.99 I’m going to give it a try!

    • miriamhmidby

      Do you have a link? I’d love to try it.

        • Jackie

          Angela I think you made the price go 😂up by people getting it. It’s $9.99 now still a good deal. Thanks 😁

          • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

            LOL! Thanks for letting us know!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the heads up!

    I would love to hear anymore season ideas anyone has! I love anything sweet. I also like a little spice, too. I normally sprinkle my freshly popped corn with a bbq rub seasoning. It almost taste like you’re eating bbq chips. It helps with the chip cravings I get late at night.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      I have seen these popcorn seasonings at Walmart. They were right by the popcorn. Hope this helps!

  11. Teah

    You may be able to find them cheaper but I would check the grade of the silicon before buying, Some of them are made with fillers to make it cheaper instead of pure silicon. Do the “pinch test” pure silicon wont turn white.

  12. Fifster33

    We’ve had this for a few years now & LOVE it, we’ve also sent it to friends as house warming gifts. We like the Mushroom popcorn on Amazon because they’re Big pops but we have the most success with less un popped corn is Jiffy Pop White Popcorn.

  13. lin

    If anyone has both, how does this compare to the hot air popcorn poppers?

    • Kb

      This is so much less messy! I threw away my hot air popper after getting this!

  14. Christina

    I have been using just a regular old brown paper bag to pop popcorn. Might give this a try. Any seasoning suggestions or favorite combo?

  15. Jane

    This may sound weird but I buy the cheap mac n cheese boxes (Walmart or Kroger store brands) and after I pop mine I spray with either EVOO or Coconut oil spray and sprinkle on a few pinches of the packette of cheese that comes in the box and pitch the noodles! A pack of cheese lasts me about 4-6 batches and I like the taste of it even better than the expensive shakers they sell next to the popcorn in stores. Something odd I discovered is the Kraft brands pack of cheese is more “pebbly” and not as powdery as the cheap ones, so I have to grind those up in my spice grinder. They all taste great except the more expensive brands take more prep time! Try it!

  16. AL

    These are never $29… they’re usually around $15, sometimes drops to around $11, sometimes up to $17ish around the holidays. We have a similar one, the Colonel Popper, and like it. Bought the Salbree for a friend’s daughter who is going to college, along with popcorn kernels, seasonings, and some gift cards as a grad gift.

  17. Cindy Wisner

    I have the WW Weight Watchers version of this popper and every time I use it I’m amazed at how well it works!

  18. Ana

    I’ve only used mine one time and the microwave went out 🙁 I don’t know if it was just a coincidence or not but I’m afraid to use it again lol

    • the hippy

      Mine does this as well…every single time I’ve used it.

  19. Gramma C

    I have an old cuisinart 2 qt pan with a strainer lid that was my parents. The strainer kid means steam doesn’t get trapped which makes the popcorn chewy. Anyway I use Trader Joe’s organic popcorn and butter flavored coconut oil from Nutiva. This makes it taste exactly like movie 🍿 theater popcorn! I even melt it and use it instead of butter. Amazing!!

  20. Yazzay

    I’ve had this exact popper for years and LOVE it. I’ve gifted a few to extended family members too. I use Franklin’s Gourmet Popcorn Butter Flavored Coconut Oil (in the bottom of the popper) and it gives my popcorn a wonderful flavor. I finish it off with some pink Himalayan sea salt and voila!

    • MaaMaaBear

      ooh that popcorn butter coconut oil sounds great!!!!!

  21. Cheri

    My son (then 14 years old) bought me one for Christmas a few years ago at walmart. Didn’t think much of it, just thought it was cute, but I use it ALL the time!! I always tell him it was the best present EVER! 😃

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Awww! That’s awesome!

  22. Mandy

    Do you get $10 for Prime Day with this purchase? Are they considered Small Business?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! Prime members can earn the $10 small business credit when purchasing this.

  23. MaaMaaBear

    I love this popper!! Actually bought this as a gift too! Included some popping kernals and all! It was cute and much appreciated! On a side note, has anyone found popping kernels that they absolutely love? I’ve just been buying the Orville ones, but they seem dry/tough…. any suggestions are appreciated!

  24. mihalkofla

    If I got a credit for something else can I get this one too?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! The credit mentioned above has a limit of 1 per account.

  25. Denise

    How do you know which select businesses are included in the free 10 dollar gift card

  26. Rebekkah

    We have one of these and LOVE it! It is so easy to use that my 6 year old will make her own popcorn for snacks and clean up after herself. We love our so much that I just ordered another one to put into a graduation gift basket. This will be perfect to have in the dorm rooms.
