Free your microwave popcorn

The Presto PowerPop offers microwave popcorn popping with the ability to precisely control oil or butter.

Make your own flavor.

Popcorn is some pretty amazing food. It can be spicy or sweet, buttery or cheesy, or even covered in caramel or chocolate. It's fair to say that no matter the preference, there is a flavor of popcorn that can satisfy anyone. Mirroring this spectrum of flavor possibilities are the amount of ways to prepare popcorn. From odd-shaped contrivances that expand on the stovetop to look like a bloated silver UFO to prepackaged bags of kernels that expand in the microwave, popcorn can be cooked a variety of ways. However, if there is one issue with these convenient methods it would be that the flavor is predetermined.

The Presto PowerPop offers the convenience of microwave popcorn along with the freedom to flavor your own popcorn. In as little as 2.5 minutes, the popper produces up to three quarts of your favorite popcorn--using exactly as much butter or oil as you wish to use. Not only do you get the exact flavor you desire, but also the method has the added benefit of using loose kernels, which saves money. If your microwave oven has a cavity size larger than 6.5 inches by 10 inches, the  popper should work for you. There's no need to worry about cleanup either--the bowl and lid are dishwasher-safe.
