This Genius Device Let’s You Perfectly Pop Your Own Fresh Popcorn In The Microwave


Your days of burnt, prepackaged popcorn are about to become distant memories of the past.

The Ecolution Micro-Pop Glass Popcorn Popper lets you freely pop fresh kernels. The device looks kind of like a cross between a fishbowl and a coffee pot. You measure out the exact amount of kernels that you’ll need in the silicone lid, drop the kernels into the glass part of the popper, put the lid back on and put the popper right into the microwave.

Here’s a video of how it works:

The best part about this contraption is that you get to skip over all of the preservatives and chemicals you typically find in microwavable popcorn bags. You also don’t have to hover next to the microwave for minutes at a time to make sure the bag doesn’t accidentally catch fire. The bowl is specially designed to prevent you from burning the popcorn. Yay for foolproof kitchen gadgets!

The silicone lid can also be used for melting butter or other ingredients — maybe coconut oil, olive oil or sesame oil — directly into the popcorn while it’s in the microwave. The holes in the lid will evenly distribute the butter or other ingredients all over the popcorn as the kernels pop so it’ll be ready to eat as soon as it’s finished popping. Genius.

You can reuse the device, it’s super easy to clean and will reduce the amount of waste you create by making prepackaged microwavable popcorn all the time. You honestly can’t go wrong here.
