Types of Popcorn Makers

Whether itís basic buttered for movie night or caramel corn for Halloween, thereís usually some fun associated with a batch of freshly popped popcorn. With popcorn machines, you can go the healthy route with an air popper, use the traditional hot-oil method, or look like a movie theater pro with a larger-capacity machine. Pick the popper and let the fun begin.

Air poppers

With no oil required, an air popper produces a healthy batch of popcorn that comes out through a chute and into a bowl. You designate the quantity, and the machine does the rest.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Some people opt for popcorn that is tried, true, and traditional -- popped in oil and drizzled with melted butter. Others are more focused on health and choose air-popped corn to cut calories and fat. Pick your preferred method before you buy a machine. All makers give you hot, fresh popcorn in minutes. Itís really just a matter of preference.

Size

Popcorn makers come in various shapes and styles, so consider where and how you will store the appliance.

Capacity

Air poppers and oil poppers can typically pop 4 to 6 quarts per batch, while theater-style professional poppers have the capacity to produce more.

Price

Air and oil poppers are inexpensive. Theater-style machines range in price depending on size and design.

Cleanability

Air poppers and traditional oil poppers are generally easy to clean, but the professional poppers can be tricky, as they typically have glass windows.
