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.
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. For under $16 you can’t beat the price either!
We also spotted a similar Zulay Kitchen Microwave Popcorn Popper for only $9.99. We haven’t tested that brand but the reviews look great (with 4.7 out of 5 stars), and it’s almost half the price!
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…
“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?
