Whether you’re watching thrillers like Money Heist and Ozark or comedies like Set It Up, there’s no better snack than popcorn. During quarantine, Netflix was my favorite escape and I found myself plowing through bags of microwave popcorn before deciding to try popping kernels myself for a more economical (and environmentally friendly) way to indulge my habit.
It’s easy enough to pop kernels on the stove top, but I always seemed to end up with too many burnt pieces, or a sad army of unpopped kernels, even when I diligently listened to the popping percussion and periodically shook the pan.
Then I discovered the Fresh Pop Popcorn Maker by Dash and I’ve instantly become a popcorn popping queen. It may look like a miniature garbage can, but this is a small but mighty popcorn machine. It’s just over a foot tall and easily fits on a kitchen countertop, or if I’m being totally honest, right on my nightstand with a hefty container of popcorn kernels underneath.
