Whether you're opting to stay home more due to the humid summer weather or just to be on the safe side (thanks, Omicron) then you will be in need of a snack once in a while. And one that doesn't require any cleaning or effort, because who has the energy these days?

If this is you but you don't want the future responsibility of shedding extra chocolate weight, then we have the perfect healthy alternative.

What's more, it's $14.


Boasting over 25,000 five-star reviews is the Ecolution Original Microwave Micro-Pop Popcorn Popper, also described as the "best popcorn maker" by one happy customer on Amazon.

Requiring no oil, butter, time, mess or effort, the nifty popcorn popper is designed to make snacking so easy that the only job you have to do is to eat the freshly made popcorn. In fact, that's the longest task in the whole process.

Tell me more

Made from durable BPA-free glass, the popcorn popper is designed to be the healthier option than regular store-bought popcorn requiring no butter or oil to cook.

Its unique design allows the hot air to spread evenly throughout the pot to prevent burnt or unpopped kernels while remaining safe to touch with the heat-resistant borosilicate glass.

Simply use the three-in-one silicone lid to measure the kernels, pour into the pot, cover with the lid and zap in the microwave for three minutes to pull out freshly made, delicious popcorn.

If you're wondering what the third use is for the silicone lid, you can also place a tablespoon of butter onto the lid to melt while in the microwave, so if you're inclined, can use freshly melted butter to pour over your popcorn. It's genius, really.

When you're done eating, simply chuck it in the dishwasher. It's that easy.

How much are we talking?

Whether you're snacking for one or need a decent-sized pot, there's two generous sizes to cater for all popcorn sessions.

The individual pot fills approximately six cups while the larger family size holds 11 cups of popcorn, which could also be enjoyed by a couple if you're feeling extra peckish.

Shop the smaller size for $14 or $38 for the larger, and with free shipping, if you're an Amazon Prime member.

"No more expensive instant popcorn packets nor having another electrical popcorn maker fail," another has said.

Others have loved its healthy option, giving a guilt-free alternative to delicious snacking.

"Great for making healthy popcorn and limiting the amount of nasties that you get in ready-made popcorn," one has said.
