We love popcorn, but I recently did away with all of our store-bought microwave popcorn. Between the harmful additives and the unhealthy ingredients, I couldn’t bear to feed it to my family. I was excited to try the MumsPrefer silicone microwave popcorn popper, although I have to say I was a little bit skeptical as far as how well it would work.This silicone popcorn popper is basically silicone bucket with a lid, which fits in the microwave. Once you purchase the popper, you get an e-book full of instructions and recipes. I was impressed with all the recipes, but again, I found myself wondering just how good this would actually work.
For my first recipe, I made traditional popcorn. The recipe in the booklet calls for 1 teaspoon butter, some salt, and 1/4 cup popcorn kernals. I melted the butter in the popper for about 30 seconds or so, then mixed in salt and the popcorn kernels. Then, the bucket went back into the microwave, with the lid on. I originally had the lid on tightly but was a little worried it would pop off (from pressure), so set a corner askew so that air could get out (but splattering butter would stay contained and not make a mess of the microwave). Following the instructions, I waited for 2 seconds between pops and took the popper out of the microwave. Inside – perfect popcorn. I will say I like mine a little more buttery, but in the interest of eating healthy, I had no problem eating this batch. Now I know to add a little more butter next time if I want it more buttery.
The classic salt & butter popcorn is a great go-to recipe, and I’m looking forwarding to trying their other recipes, like spicy (with curry powder), cinnamon sugar, peanut butter, and caramel versions.Read more ›
I have often used microwave popcorn bags in the past and it was the quickest way to get a popcorn fix but I know it was by far not the most healthy way to get it. I had progressed on to an air popper for health reasons but, to be honest, the taste was lacking unless you pour melted butter along with other seasonings over the dry popped corn. That kind of defeated the purpose of the hot air popper and it was extremely bulky and difficult to get out, clean and put back up.I have used the MumsPrefer Original Family Microwave Popcorn Popper several times since I received it. I was a little surprised at the size but it is deceiving. It pops a huge bowl of actually healthy popcorn both quickly and easily. The clean up is simple and it is so light weight. It is easy to store and get out of storage which is a big plus since the hot air popper is so heavy and bulky.
The corn is delicious in both the original recipe as well as in the other recipes in the free recipe e-book that I have tried so far. I used coconut oil in a small amount (just 1 teaspoon) and have also used the flavored popcorn salts that you can purchase in any grocery store.
I highly recommend this microwave popcorn popper to anyone who enjoy the convenience of microwave popcorn but would prefer a healthier option than the store bought bags.
I received this product at a reduced price in consideration of my honest written review.
