Microwave Popcorn Popper Review

 Popcorn is a timeless snack enjoyed by people of all ages. Its unmistakable aroma, satisfying crunch, and versatility make it a staple at movie nights, carnivals, and cozy evenings at home.

Microwave popcorn popper review

I'm reviewing my new glass microwave popcorn popper in my post today. For many years we have had a hot-air popcorn popper, until one day, it finally quit working.

 I couldn't find the same one we had, so I opted for a different model. Needless to say, we were not happy with the performance. It just wasn't the same as our old one.

We quit buying microwave popcorn in premade bags years ago because of the chemicals used in the process. So, in my search for yet another hot-air popper, I came across this Ecolutions Microwave Popcorn Popper, after reading many of the reviews, I decided to give it a try. 

Well, I couldn't be happier, as with the hot-air popper this microwave popper needs no oil to make fresh hot popcorn.

Features of the Microwave Popper:

  • Temperature safe glass
  • The lid measures the kernels and melts the butter
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Makes 3 quarts of popcorn
  • You can buy a snack size that makes 1.5 quarts
Note: This microwave popper only works with microwaves that have a rotating turntable.

I tried using the lid to melt the butter while popping but I didn't care for that. So, I melt my butter separately and mix it after.

We have a 1000-watt microwave, I set my time to 3 minutes and 30 seconds and get perfect popcorn every time. You will have to experiment with times, for different microwaves.

The Science Behind the Pop:

Delicious hot popcorn every time. Have you ever wondered what makes popcorn pop? Every kernel contains a small amount of moisture in the starchy center. When the kernel is heated the water turns into steam, creating pressure. The pressure causes the kernel to explode, turning it inside out and forming the fluffy, edible snack we all love.

  1. I love popcorn and, like you, never use those microwave bags of popcorn. Just not natural, somehow. I've always made my popcorn in a covered pan on the stove, which does give me very satisfactory results. But, that method does require the use of oil, constant attention and shaking of pan, and a messy cleanup. So, this glass microwave popper looks to be a perfect alternative. Thanks so much for telling me about it, Sam.

  2. This glass microwave popcorn popper sounds really great for making delicious fresh popcorn. I have never made popcorn as we usually buy it when we want it, but this sounds so much better and easy to make. Thank you for your personal review and recommendation.

  3. This is marvelous! It has been many years since we have enjoyed popcorn at home. Like you, I stopped using the microwave bags of popcorn, which made the only time I got to enjoy popcorn was at the theater. Then, we stopped frequenting the theater as often. Good popcorn is hard to get! Thanks for showing me how we can have and enjoy popcorn again.

  4. This certainly sounds like a wonderful choice. Thans for the recommendation.

  5. This glass microwave popcorn popper sounds like a winner! All the benefits of air-popped corn with the convenience of microwave cooking.

  6. I've been using microwave popcorn, but I recently decided I wanted to go with a more natural way of cooking it. I was pleased when I saw your review. I also looked at the reviews on Amazon and I was impressed with this popper. It got great Amazon reviews on top of your endorsement. I think I have found my new popcorn maker!!! thanks!

  7. We go in and out of our desire for popcorn, but I like the sound of this popper. It would be just perfect for the two of us and I'm sure we would use it often. Thanks Sam for being on the look out for a better way to make popcorn.
