We love popcorn, but I recently did away with all of our store-bought microwave popcorn. Between the harmful additives and the unhealthy ingredients, I couldn’t bear to feed it to my family. My husband purchased a microwave popcorn popper, but it tends to collect dust in the basement because we don’t have room for it in our kitchen, and I don’t like having to deal with cleanup. So I was excited to hear about the MumsPrefer silicone microwave popcorn popper, although I have to say I was a little bit skeptical too!
This silicone popcorn popper is basically silicone bucket with a lid, which fits in the microwave. Once you purchase the popper, you get an e-book full of instructions and recipes. I was impressed with all the recipes, but again, I found myself wondering just how good this would actually work.
I usually stick with a traditional popcorn. The recipe in the booklet calls for 1 teaspoon butter, some salt, and 1/4 cup popcorn kernals.
I melted the butter in the popper for about 30 seconds or so, then mixed in salt and the popcorn kernals.
Then, the bucket went back into the microwave, with the lid on. I originally had the lid on tightly but was a little worried it would pop off (from pressure), so set a corner askew so that air could get out (but splattering butter would stay in!).
Following the instructions, I waited for 2 seconds between pops and took the popper out of the microwave. Inside – perfect popcorn. I will say I like mine a little more buttery, but in the interest of eating healthy, I had no problem eating this batch!
The classic salt & butter popcorn is delicious, and I’m looking forwarding to trying their other recipes, like spicy (with curry powder), cinnamon sugar, and caramel popcorn!
What I love about this popper is that it is everything I look for in creating food. The silicone is food safe. You can choose exactly what ingredients you use – from my Amish butter to Himalayan salt to non-GMO popcorn kernals – I know I am able to hand-pick every ingredient.
The MumsPrefer Popcorn Popper is easy to wash, whether you wash by hand or in the microwave, and it is easy to store.
Another fun thing about this product is that it is “personal size”, meaning I can pop a batch and then eat right from the bucket (either by myself or share!).
Overall, this is a fantastic product, and I have to say I am impressed!
