Excellent popcorn maker with great reviews. Cheapest I could find in JL.Comes with two years warranty.

Fifties inspired fun - the perfect snack is just three minutes away with Gourmet Gadgetry’s retro popcorn maker. Using only hot air, this machine turns kernels into warm popcorn. No oil is used during the process, so it’s healthy too!

Includes a measuring scoop for serving up.

Most of them. I bought kernels from Tesco 500g packet for 99p.

JFI, these machine do not produce crunchy pop corn.

I think I'll stick to the "unhealthy" pan and teaspoon of oil...

Wahey! Saved myself £12.95!

I always get a daunting look when I try to take snacks in with me. Especially when it's fruits and bags of maltesers

Thanks

Trouble with the popcorn is it doesn't taste of anything. Have tried syrup and icing sugar but it just falls to the bottom of the bowl!

Great for roasting coffee beans

did you have to mod it in any way? How much can you do in a batch?

​Currently I use a different popcorn maker, but they are pretty much the same and produce some really good results, you just have to pick the most suitable coffee to roast. S American Brazilian Fandenza, or Cuban, or Vietnamese, really any robust bean. I find that I the key is to roast outside when the temperature is about 15c, if it's around 5c it's difficult to get the heat, if around 25c it roasts too quickly. Anyway, give it a try, cheaper than spending £350 plus on a gene Cafe.

In a batch about 70g

OK, thanks - I've been roasting my own coffee beans for a couple of years but use a heat gun, 250g batches, it works well but chaff goes everywhere so looking at alternatives that might cause less mess

Still need to Roast outside

Think I'll stick to the heat gun then, thanks

I just (re)use my sistema microwave porridge tub. A tablespoon of kernels in the bottom, no oil or anything, tub vent open, full power for 3-4 minutes until the popping fizzles out. Separately mix melted butter with sugar and / or salt and drizzle over. Shake to coat all. No special equipment needed.

These are easy and quick but lack of oil means they're not crispy and no salt sticks to them unfortunately.

Hot but I would prefer the larger ones you can find, as one small one I had tended to not be able to push out all the kernels.all the time and when I did two runs the second run would be much smaller, whereas with the big one one batch was usually enough and a second wasn't as smaller.

My secret for very moreish not too unhealthy popcorn:-

* get a lidded plastic container big enough to hold the popcorn serving and with some free space.
* pour 1-4 tbsp olive oil - the pepperier the better - there's one from Aldi which is really tasty - to coat the bottom of the container to taste
* pour in the made popcorn
* sprinkle salt on top to taste (0.5tspn?)
* seal the lid of the container and shake for 30 seconds to 1 minute to evenly distribute everything. I shake in such a way so that I can see the popcorn rotate round the container.

That's it and it comes out reasonably healthy - provided you are careful with the salt although apparently you can eat a load of vegetables or use lo-salt in your diet to increase potassium levels and the salt isn't really a problem??

Not sure of a sweet way to do this, but perhaps with a tasteless vegetable oil and sugar? The important thing with salt or sugar is to use small enough granules so that it will spread around - caster sugar and some salts have possibly too thick a grain.
