I adore popcorn. Sweet, savoury, and the sweet and savoury flavours that you’re not sure if you like, but you eat the whole pan so you must like it on some level. I love pan popped and microwave popped, and I love the emergence of so-called ‘gourmet’ popcorn. I’ve used the air pop machines before but always found the popcorn a little dry, whatever I do to it. As a virtual connoisseur, I was excited to try the Mustard Popcorn Maker.*
Using the same principles as the bags of microwave popcorn. Heat, and something to stop the kernels flying all over the place when they cook. As well as the cost aspect of normal microwave popcorn, you can’t really control what goes into it. I am a big believer in ‘real food’ from scratch where possible, even for snacks. The Heat and Eat is perfect for this.
You fill the removable scoop and vent from the lid, fill to the max with popcorn kernels. Put the kernels in the red bowl and top firmly with lid and scoop. Microwave according to instructions on the box, which depend on your microwaves power, and boom you’re done. A lovely bowl of fluffy hot popcorn. This is where is gets exciting.
