Reduced from £7.99 last time. I bought one about three years ago, and it made fine popcorn until I dropped it on a hard floor and broke the chute. Includes a three year warranty (though I suspect this doesn't cover accidental damage!)

Seems the going rate for popcorn makers elsewhere is at least £10-20.

Just make it in the Microwave!

Got one of those tucked in the cupboard somewhere from a few years back - Lidl were selling the bags of popping corn at v.cheap price too - worked very well but bit of a hassle and bulky kitchen item for the marginal use it's likely to get - ie you really need some popcorn addict(s) to justify it in my view.

I do around a kilo a time with mine, then make some caramel & add maple / honey or whatever takes my fancy, soon ges demolished with people round to watch a film, I stick em in 1 oz size bags (2 oz by the time the caramel has been added) gooey & delicious for cinema at home hights on the projector.

cheap, though you need a ruddy large bowl to catch it all in, or cover it over partially with a tea-towel
nb I highly recommend the brand "east end" popcorn kernels they do 500g bags for around 59p, very low unpopped kernel qty's over 4 packs I did on saturday.
( they re-wash it at the uk end o minimak husk type detritus to hack & cough on!

Hmm, interesting. How do you do this? A quick Google brings up loads of peeing about with brown paper bags and all-sorts. Do you have a recipe?

I have one, highly recommend it

don't know where you live but it's not for sale in cov enry or the rest of the west midlands...

... that said, it's suddenly appeared.!

Can't beat a large non stick pan with lid when it comes to pop corn. Perfect sweet popcorn every time:thumbsup:

Good price for an air dryer popcorn machine though.

More Chinese garbage that you'll use three times and leave in the cupboard.

These will be bought by the same people who pat themselves on the back for putting their TV in standby once per week and only buying organic carrot juice.

Stop blaming the chinese, dude. The German wanted to sell it, the chinese just make them.

I love it how when something's [perceived to be] bad quality it's called Chinese rubbish. The vast majority of electronic goods are made in China, so-called high quality goods included - like Apple's products, for example.

Point is, you can set up a factory in the UK or in China or anywhere else. The quality of the goods produced has nothing to do with where it's made in the slightest.

Yep 'peeing about' with brown paper bags is one way but you could just buy microwave popcorn. It's not 'treated' or anything (well unless you count 'salted and/or 'sweetened'). They simply provide the popcorn in the bag ready for the microwave.

It was listed on here a few months back: hotukdeals.com/ite…ter You can get it in most supermarkets. I think they do: SALTED, SWEET and BUTTER flavours.

I'm pretty sure there was a caramel variety too, years ago. Loved that!

The stuff that comes rready to microwave is lovely and lidl sell their own version (McKennedys or similar I believe) and it is gorgeous - Butterkist is the other make that pop well - Usually about £1.50 a box which will have maybe 4 sachets in. We go thru loads here (picnics, packed lunches, unexpected 'i'm hungry' moments from the kids etc etc ...... Happy Popping!!!

Another vote for microwave popcorn :thumbsup: who needs a one of these ?.

]But the quality of life for the workers varies greatly. I actually lol'd at the absurdity when I read this part... "Astonishingly, this involves forcing all Foxconn employees to sign a new legally binding document promising that they won't kill themselves."

me thinks someone might have a big belly :whistling:

Anyways....

I've got one of these, they are really bulky but the work a treat and they are so easy to clean..

If you like popcorn this is pretty cool, but make sure you've got somewhere to store it when your not using it for six months at a time though and make sure you have a big bowl for when you do use it..

It was was rather amusing the first time I used it as i totally over filled it and just stuck a little bowl there to catch everything. It was like a mass popcorn explosion in my kitchen.:w00t:

I was like WTF, grabbing saucepans cups or anything I could...LMAO

I got this one a while back from Lidl. Does a good job, but there are 2 or 3 plastic tabs on the clear bit that lock into place - 1 of the tabs broke off (cheap plastic/design)

I prefer popping corn on stove top, but hot air popping is second best and the healthiest option (microwave popping corn comes out tasting like Styrofoam and with way too much salt and cholesterol additives)

this is worth £5, imo

Yes, big belly, but from loving beer, we tend to be known for our fondness of cooking / being foodie types, & so weekly proper baking, cooking etc helps to justify gadgety stuff, & having a kid at school we are asked to make popcorn, cakes & biscuits for various events, childrens parties etc, ..as so many people cannot be arsed to weigh out a few hundred gram of sugar & butter, & watch it on the stove top. they think it's speciality (not even 11 yr olds H.E. level)

to give you an idea of how non-plussed folk can be, daughters school has regular cake stalls (asking parents to bake & donate) ..they've had to resort to adding to their flyers "only home made NOT shop bought items" as kitchen skills are seemingly on the wane. :oops:

my mates moan if we run out of popcorn, so best to make enough for an evening & for them to take home for their children / other half (in proper popcorn bags), & for the mums to sneak into saturday morning kids cinema, ...so it can soon mount up into a few packets of kernels at a time.

"Popcorn addicts" - that's me

recently got back into making popcorn on the hob with a little corn oil... sprinkling sugar over the boiling kernels just as the first pops start, that way the sugar melts and doesn't burn. maple syrup added at this stage also works.


now for coffee geeks... popcorn makers can be used to roast coffee beans! but you need good cheap access to green coffee beans... ho hum!

Has anyone been able to get one of these. . .

As the website shows no such offer and my nearest store aint got none either. . .

Lidl offers aren't nationwide. They were available in Bristol, but I'm not sure about other regions.
