A family favorite since its invention in the 1970s, this popper produces flavorful, fluffy popcorn in less than 2.5 minutes, without the use of oil, and with practically no kernels left unpopped. A true innovation in its time, the design was among the first poppers to use hot air instead of hot oil, offering a healthier way to make a delicious snack that endures to this day. Pops up to 18 cups of popcorn in under 2.5 minutes. Top compartment melts butter and doubles as a measuring cup. Chute directs popcorn directly into your bowl.
