Popcorn Poppers Features
Stovetop Popcorn Poppers.
Cheap stovetop popcorn poppers have two pieces: a lid with a handle and stirring arm, and a thin metal (usually aluminum) pot-like base.
Oil Popcorn Poppers
Good low-cost oil popcorn poppers are easy to find in the frugal consumerís price range. Oil popcorn poppers may be hand-operated or electric powered; either way, they require some oil on the cooking surface and a stirring arm to keep the kernels moving so they donít stick and burn. Health-conscious consumers may want to keep in mind that although with oil popcorn poppers you are paying more calories upfront with the oil, the alternative can be quite dry and may induce snackers to pour on butter or flavoring after the fact, which adds plenty of calories on its own. Oil popped popcorn tends to have more flavor right out of the machine, and it holds salt better. All the oil popcorn poppers we researched let you add a variety of oil and flavorings; coconut, corn, canola, vegetable, olive, or any other liquid fat will do. Whether air- or oil popped, some users claim the best results come from using premium kernels -- but read the ownerís manual to see what the manufacturer recommends.
