2017 is the Year for Popcorn

Popcorn poppers have come a very long way. There are lot of health benefits to eating popcorn. Popcorn is a whole grain that can help you to feel full and reduce your unhealthy snacking. However, when you start adding the oils and flavors, you start adding fat.

Popping Popcorn without the Fat

Now, thanks to technology, we don’t have to have all the extra fat in our popcorn because we have the option to pop it with hot air. That is what we are going to explore right now. Let’s look at the best of the 2017 popcorn poppers that allow you to eat your popcorn in a healthier way.

Number One: Cuisinart CPM-100W EasyPop Hot Air Popcorn Maker

Why this thing is genius is simple. You can get a full ten cups of popcorn in less than three minutes. So while you are waiting for the boring stuff to be over and your movie to really begin, you can have enough popcorn to share.

What we love about it:

  • No oils or fats. All you have to do is pour the popcorn in and plug in your machine. That’s it. Your healthy snack is easy to make.
  • It is fast. You put the bowl under the popper and make a drink by the time you turn around your popcorn is done. If you want more, then make more because it is so quick that you aren’t going to miss anything in your show.
  • There is a warming dish that goes into lid so you can add butter if you want in the amount that you want. It makes sure it is ready when your popcorn is.

What we wish would change:

  • If you try to make a smaller batch, it blows the popcorn out way to fast and you get less efficiency. The ability to share popcorn is nice, but sometimes sharing is overrated.

Number Two: TWOBIU Popcorn Machine, Popcorn Maker, Hot Air Popcorn Popper

If you are big popcorn eater, and aren’t we all, then this is going to be your best friend. You can leave it on your counter-top and fill it as you wish. With a push of a button you have plenty of popcorn to share.

What we love:

  • The small size doesn’t mean less popcorn. It sits just right on an counter-top yet it pops more than enough popcorn to fill two bowls.
  • The chamber gets hot enough that you could put nuts in for an add-on. Or use the cup up top to melt peanut butter or warm up honey to create a trail mix or popcorn ball in minutes.
  • All the popcorn pops. You don’t have to worry about wasted kernels because what you put in you get to eat. It makes sharing almost reasonable.

What we want improved

  • The sound of this popper is worse than the vacuum. All we need is for someone could please make it quieter it would be even better than it already is.

Number Three: West Bend 82505 Stir Crazy Popcorn Popper

This one isn’t an air popper, but does allow for healthy choices. You can use your choice of oils, including coconut, so that you are still getting a healthy snack.

What we love:

  • The size is amazing. It can make up to twenty-seven cups of popcorn. Yes, that is enough to share. However, you  can make less if you choose because the stir rods make sure nothing is blowing around.
  • The lid becomes your bowl. When your popcorn is done, just flip it upside down and you are ready to eat. This is the smartest thing that anyone has done to popcorn makers.
  • It has little spaces to add flavor as it pops. This means that you have even flavor through the popcorn.

What we want improved:

  • It is very hard to clean up. You have to really work at it and the arms get goopy after just a couple of uses.

While we do hope that you enjoyed this list of the best popcorn poppers of 2017, we do have excuse ourselves because it is snack time.
