A POPular appliance in my house.

AdvantagesHealthier, good value for money, clean and safe.

DisadvantagesThe popcorn goes EVERYWHERE!

"...maker I got was a Prima Hot Air Popcorn Maker. It came in a white cuboid box, with a picture of the machine on the side, spilling popcorn out of its chute. We tipped out the contents on to the kitchen table. Each part of the popcorn maker was individually wrapped, to ensure hygiene. (You should have all these parts. If you’re missing something, take your popcorn maker back to the shop it was purchased from with your warranty, and you’ll be able ..." Read review

Once you pop, you just cant stop!

AdvantagesDiet friendly quick snack

DisadvantagesCan end up everywhere!

"I would never have considered buying a popcorn maker... I assumed it would be one of those things that sound all exciting... gets used continuously for a month then gathers dust at the back of the cupboard, but I was SO wrong! My brother was offloading stuff before moving and offered me this little gem. I thought what the hey, a month of free popcorn is worth dusting and cupboard space for years. After smuggling it back home on the train, I ..." Read review

Popping fun

AdvantagesIts shaped like a duck

DisadvantagesNever quite pops the lot

"...left home! This is made by prima and is available from Argos, I think they do do other ones not shaped like a duck. This is an excellent buy and far better quality than the twice as expensive toy. So with christmas coming up it makes a great present and so happy popping. Thanks for reading. ..." Read review

Hot popcorn, a video and man of your dreams!!

AdvantagesVery easy to clean - even hot melted syrup came off

DisadvantagesNever tastes the same as the cinema's

"...here this one: ITs called the Prima Popcorn maker. It has a great see through lid and hatch. The base is a custard yellow. I like the design. It looks like a little space pod. So my daughter liked it too!! Cooking - You turn it on and pour in a scoop of corns. Then turn the button to HEAT/MIX. It did take about 6 mins to start popping. It took around 10 mins to pop the corns one the first time. Yes it didnt pop them all but you get that in the ..." Read review

Once you've popped, you can't stop

AdvantagesMakes yummy popcorn in minutes

DisadvantagesNo good for bulk making

"PRIMA POPCORN MAKER I bought this a couple of years back and paid a tenner for it in a sale. The kids absolutely adore the popcorn from it, and this normally comes out when they have sales at school. We make popcorn boxes and they sell it for 10p a box. Also it is a very handy accessory to have for sleepovers when you’ve got hordes of kids with stomachs like bottomless pits!! The popcorn make comprises four parts:- a measuring cup/butter ..."

low fat but low taste

Advantageslow fat, quick to make

Disadvantagestasteless on it's own

"I love popcorn, and would probably quite happily eat nothing else! I got this popcorn maker as a gift years ago because of this. All you need is a power socket, a bowl and some popcorn kernels. You put about a palm-full of kernels into the top, switch it on, and it heats the kernels and voila popcorn starts appearing and popping furiously into your bowl. I'm not a fan of sweet or toffee popcorn, it's got to be salted. Unfortunately, no matter how ..." Read review

Low-fat snack food that's fun to make

Advantagesfun, low-fat, convenient

Disadvantagesnoisy

"...and spent £15 on a Prima popcorn maker. This machine pops the corn by means of hot air rather than oil, so it is very low in fat and also very easy to clean. In use, it is very noisy, rather like a hairdryer. The popcorn kernels are poured in the top, switch it on, and after a couple of minutes the popped kernels come out the chute at the top and into your waiting bowl. It's also great fun to use, as the popcorn really comes flying out of the ..." Read review

ONLY 30 CALORIES FOR A MUG FULL

AdvantagesA fast and fresh snack

DisadvantagesThe popcorn can get everywhere

"...and calories. Then I discovered the Prima Popcorn maker which makes healthier popcorn in minutes (3mins approx). It only costs about £14.50 in places like Argos and Homebase but I did have trouble to get hold of one as they were constantly out of stock. It is very simple to use. All you need to do is put the kernals in the top using the lid to measure how much to put in, and switch it on. The only problem is finding a shop that sells kernals. After ..." Read review

Its so easy and cheap to make popcorn

Advantageseasy to make, small appliance and cheap.

DisadvantagesCant think of any

"This is one of my favourite kitchen essentials now. I have always been a big fan of popcorn but untill recently was a little lost on how to actually get my own popcorn. This machine makes it so easy and you never need as much corn as you think. After buying a bag of corn from your local supermarket you only need about a large handful of corn to make a big bucket of popcorn. Simply but the corn in the machine, plug it in and leave in the kitchen with ..." Read review
