Hot Air Popper, Electric Popcorn Maker Machine with 1200W, No oil needed, Healthy and Delicious Snack for Kids, Adults. Great for Holding Parties in Home and Watching Movies with Family

KORCCI Hot Air Popper

[EASY TO CLEAN] - The hot air popcorn machine uses hot air to make popcorn without any oil, so it is easy to clean. After making the popcorn, remove the cup and top cover, wash them with water. Then clean the rest of the machine with a damp cloth.

The Hot Air Popper claims to be "the healthiest popcorn machine," but we found more unhealthy ingredients in it than healthy ones. The popcorn was delicious, though, and the machine was easy to use. The Hot Air Popper used hot air to make popcorn rather than oil, so it's healthier, but the popcorn was not necessarily healthier than other popcorn machines. The Hot Air Popper also burns about 40 percent more calories than other popcorn machines, but we didn't find that it tasted better, and it didn't taste any worse. The Hot Air Popper also fried our kernels, rather than popping them, which made for very smoky popcorn. The Hot Air Popper was not as quiet as other popcorn machines, and it's bigger, so it's harder to store. The Hot Air Popper makes delicious popcorn, but it's not the healthiest or most energy-efficient machine we considered.

Nictemaw Hot Air Popcorn Popper, 4 Cup, 1200W Electric Popcorn Machine, 3 Minutes Quick Popcorn Maker for Home Use, with Removable Top Cover and Measuring Cup, Black

Nictemaw Hot Air Popcorn Popper

EASY TO OPERATE: One-touch switch button, easy to operation. Use the provided measuring spoon to add a scoop of corn kernels to the main container, turn on the device and wait for about 2-3 minutes, and then get the delicious popcorn. The transparent lid allows you to watch the whole process. Note: Don't add butter and sugar into the machine directly. After the popcorn is made, you can add condensed milk, butter, cream, etc.

The Nicemaw 4-Cup Hot Air Popcorn Popper is our top pick for popcorn makers. Not only does it produce delicious popcorn without oil, but it's easy to use, easy to clean, and (as we've noted) BPA-free. It's also light and portable, and it comes with several nice extras, like a measuring cup for easy measuring, a butter heating tray that can be removed for dishwasher cleaning, and a removable top cover that doubles as a popcorn scoop. This popper has some other advantages over our other top picks, though. First, it produces larger, fluffier popcorn than our previous top pick, the Hamilton Beach Pop Maker, and it's capable of popping 4 cups of popcorn at a time. Second, it doesn't require oil to pop the corn. Third, it produces popcorn in about 3 minutes, compared with about 7 minutes for our top pick. The Nicemaw popper also costs a bit more than our top pick, but it's well worth the investment.

Dash Hot Air Popcorn Popper Maker with Measuring Cup to Portion Popping Corn Kernels + Melt Butter, Aqua

Dash Hot Air Popcorn Popper Maker with Measuring to Cup Portion Popping Corn Kernels + Melt Butter

by StoreBound

COMPACT: The Dash Popcorn Machine is your must-have for that first apartment, smaller kitchen, college dorm life, or camper/RV traveling. Plus, its sleek design and trendy color options will accent any kitchen space; makes a perfect gift.

The Dash Hot Air popcorn maker is a no-fuss, entry-level machine that is easy to use and produces decent popcorn. The machine is compact, weighing in at less than 7 pounds, and the battery-operated air popper has simple controls. The popper has a simple design with a bright-blue handle and a stainless steel body, and it pops eight cups a minute. The popcorn tastes good, and the popper produces light, airy popcorn that stays fresh for days. The popper comes with a measuring cup and a butter melting tray, so you can make popcorn for movie nights, large parties, or a group gathering. The popper is easy to clean, and the battery lasts nearly two hours. It's easy to use, and it produces enough popcorn for a big group. There are a few cons, however. The popper takes up a lot of space, and the unit isn't as sturdy as our top pick. There's also no timer or count-down feature, so the machine pops as soon as the popcorn kernels are added. Also, the machine's power button is awkwardly placed, and it's unclear whether the machine shuts off when the popcorn reaches the desired length, so you'll need to keep an eye on it.

Hot Air Popcorn Maker Machine, Leadpo Home Popcorn Maker, BPA-Free, 96% Popping Rate, 2 Minutes Fast Electric Popcorn Popper with Measuring Cup and Removable Cover, No Oil Healthy Snack for Kids Adults (red)

Leadpo Hot Air Maker Popcorn Machine

Portable & Lightweight: The small design of the pop corn making machine ensures that our popcorn maker won't occupy much of your kitchen space and easy to store when not in use. You can make healthy and tasty popcorn with hot air popcorn maker in minutes for children, family and friends at any time.

This hot air popcorn maker is quick and easy, and it produces delicious popcorn, but it's slightly tricky to use. First, the instructions are in Mandarin, so they're a little hard to understand. Second, when the popcorn maker is plugged in, it doesn't start making popcorn immediately. You have to press a button on the bottom to make it start, and this button doesn't illuminate until you've pushed it several times. Finally, the popping chamber can be removed and cleaned, but it only fits in the dishwasher if you remove the heating element and turn on the machine first. (The instruction manual shows how to do this, but it's a bit confusing.) Those caveats aside, the popcorn machine does produce very good popcorn, and it's fast (it takes 2 minutes to make 4 cups of popped corn). The heating element isn't just for show; it heats the popping chamber and ensures that each kernel is popped evenly. The popcorn maker also comes with a measuring cup, butter melting tray, and a removable cover, making it easy to clean up after you're done. The popcorn maker is also easy to clean, and the heating element is dishwasher-safe.
