Film fans have a love/hate relationship with popcorn. We love eating it ourselves, but we hate when others around us rustle and crunch it. We love knowing that true aficionados prefer salty and hate the peasants that buy sweet. We love that it is the easiest food to eat in gigantic quantities, but we hate that even a small amount costs us a week’s wages at the local multiplex!
All of these things make it seem obvious to just make our own popcorn and either have it at home or take it with us wherever we go. But most popcorn machines on the market are little more than plastic pieces of crap, aimed squarely at toddlers.
It is with great excitement and a huge goofy smile then, that I can officially recommend the JM Posner Pro Popcorn Maker. This is a home popcorn machine that is essentially the exact mechanism you would find in your local picture-house, but fit into a house appropriate sized box.
The unit itself looks incredible. It replicates that authentic cinema look (including that iconic yellow glow of the warming bulb) and when the corn starts popping you actually feel like a king! It flies around the cabinet like a bingo machine on heat! And then that familiar fresh popcorn smell fills the room.
Because it is based on the same principles as an industrial popper, it can be left on constantly for a long period of time, and you can keep going back to pop more and more! This means those home movie marathons will never be bereft of treats ever again. And because it’s your machine, you can make the popcorn anyway you see fit. Savoury, salty, spicy, soaked in caramel; it’s up to you.
So if you’ve ever found yourself getting a hankering for some popcorn at home that microwaved popcorn cannot sate, get one of these in your life ASAP. You won’t regret it!
