Best Popcorn Machines for Christmas 2020

Popcorn is loved by so many, and provides a perfect snack for films. Whether you're lucky enough to have your own cinema room, or binge on Netflix in your room, popcorn is essential!

Now you might ask why invest in an expensive machine when you can buy a packet of pre-made for under £1. Well, these are littered with bad ingredients (fat, salt, sugar) which make the popcorn really unhealthy and are expensive in the long run! With your own popcorn machine, you can control these ingredients and even experiment with recipes! Popcorn machines also make a great present this year for Christmas!

This post will review our favourite machines, so you can pick the best one!

1) Popcorn Microwave Maker

On a budget? Only have popcorn once in a blue moon? This silicone popcorn bowl is ideal for making delicious popcorn, without the need for a fancy popcorn machine. All you need is a microwave and some kernels.

This product is made from great high-quality BPA free silicone, meaning it doesn't get hot. The pot is also collapsible, great for storing but also perfect for staycations, mini holidays or camping.

2) Quest 2-in-1 Popcorn and Crepe Maker

If you've got a sweet tooth like me, then you'll probably love popcorn and crepes. Why not double up and have a machine which can do both!

This popcorn maker from Quest is simple yet effective. Simple turn on, and make a pancake, or use the bowl and make popcorn! Not only that, you can actually make eggs, omelettes and many more. This machine has a non-stick coating, making cleaning really easy and fits back in your cupboard easily.

3) Salter EK2902 Electric Hot Air Popcorn Maker

Salter are a well-known kitchen brand, and are somewhat a safe purchase. This product fits exactly that criteria - simply add your kernels into the maker and any other ingredients (toffee, salt, sugar, syrup etc) and watch the popcorn come flying out!

This machine is a whopping 1200W, meaning your popcorn cooks in no time! It's really fun to watch them fly out the side too. We loved the fact that this machine came with a cup too, meaning you can easily make one portion.

4) VonShef Retro Popcorn Maker

A very similar product to the previous, but with a slightly more retro design. This machine uses hot-air, making it the healthiest way to cook. This machine, as you can see is not ideal for making a large quantity of popcorn, however it is great for small groups and for events like movie nights and sleep overs. It also has a 2 year warranty.

We love that the 6 retro popcorn boxes pictured are included in this purchase so that you can really feel like you are in the cinema.
