I’m one of the unfortunate (many) apartment dwellers who do not own a microwave. Currently, my life is seriously lacking in freshly popped movie theater popcorn — and I really, really love popcorn. Since I’m way too lazy to make it on the stovetop and have zero room in my kitchen for a new microwave, I was on the hunt for a small popcorn maker to satisfy my needs.
Lucky for moi, one of my best friends fatefully put the DASH SmartStore Deluxe Stirring Popcorn Maker on her wedding registry. I knew then that this little life hack would make all of my snacking dreams come true.
All you need to do is plug the popcorn maker in, add oil and popcorn kernels and press the mighty power button. You get a perfect bowl of popcorn every time. No more microwave, pot, timer or last-minute grocery store runs for gorgeously popped popcorn.
Oh, and it’s pretty. I love pretty things.
The DASH popcorn maker is available in three different colors, as well as two different size options. I’m eyeing the size that makes 12 cups of popcorn, but the larger size that makes 24 cups of popcorn is great for families, parties and generally people who have more space in their kitchen.
What makes the DASH popcorn maker stand out from other at-home popcorn makers is the special stirring feature. As it stirs, the bar circulates the kernels to ensure that every single popping boy actually gets popped.
It also comes with a lid that’s also a bowl and measuring cup so you can pop, eat and then easily store it away in one container. Ugh, brilliant. And clearly, Amazon reviewers think so too, since the DASH popcorn maker boasts a 4.5 out of 5 stars review based on nearly 3,000 reviews.
“Virtually no old maids left and no burnt popcorn,” explained one Amazon user about their experience with the DASH popcorn maker. “I bought my first one, read the directions, which are pretty good actually, and made my first batch of popcorn using only vegetable oil and popcorn. Turned out great. Made several more, each with excellent results.”
“So I got this delivered last night and it’s now 11 a.m. and I have had nothing to eat today but popcorn,” wrote a five-star reviewer. This may or may not be me once I get my hands on this magical popcorn maker.
