I am looking for a popcorn popper and of course I want the best deal. Since it’s not something I look for often I was wondering if our awesome readers could provide any feedback. What is your rock bottom price you’ve seen for a hot air popper? Any favorite brands? I love the idea of a hot air popper so I don’t have to microwave the popcorn, plus I can control the amount of butter and salt. We’ve been popping on the stovetop in a pan, so this is kind of a splurge – but we really love popcorn and this just makes it so much more fun! Here are a few options I found on Amazon:
The Presto 04820 PopLite hot air popper which is normally $30 and is going for $19.88.
The Presto 04821 Orville Redenbacher’s Hot Air Popper which looks like the only thing that makes it any “better” than the first one is that it says Orville Redenbacker – I’m assuming that isn’t all that important? It is $27.99 (reg $40).
And last, is the Cuisinart CPM-100 EasyPop Hot Air Popcorn Maker, Red. I am guessing maybe this one has a longer lifespan than the others, since Quisinart has a good reputation (and it’s pretty) – retails for $75 and is being sold for $39.95.
