Presto® PopLite® hot air corn popper

Plug in Presto’s PopLite and the party begins. In less than 2-1/2 minutes you’ll have up to 18 cups--two large bowlfuls--of fluffy popcorn with virtually no unpopped kernels. And because the machine uses hot air instead of oil, the resulting snack is healthier and lower in calories. That’s not to say you can’t add butter; in fact, the 1/2-cup measuring cup on top of the popper doubles as a butter melter. Simply put in the desired amount of margarine or butter (room temperature is best), and it melts from the heat produced during the popping process. The clear plastic cover and cup, which must stay on during popping so the popped corn doesn’t fly all over the room, easily remove for hand cleaning with warm, soapy water. No other clean-up is required. While a few unpopped kernels spring out the chute as the machine begins to heats up, the chute does a good job of directing the popped corn into a bowl. The popper measures 14 by 9 by 6-1/2 inches, and is identical to Presto’s Orville Redenbacher Hot Air Corn Popper except for color and logo.

Pops with hot air, not oil, for a healthy, low-calorie treat.
This popper offers a faster, healthier, and more economical choice than microwave bag popcorn.
Use regular or gourmet popcorn with terrific results -- virtually no unpopped kernels. Up to 18 cups of gourmet popcorn are popped in less than 2 1/2 minutes.
Butter melter doubles as a handy measuring cup. Chute directs popcorn right into your bowl.

My Personal Thought
This little popcorn maker is the best of making popcorn. You can make healthy popcorn without using any butter thanks to its hot air technology. It is a must have high tech home gadget in your house...
