Making your own popcorn is a total win-win choice. Home popped corn is more affordable, healthier, more versatile, and arguably more fun to make, compared to just opening a packet. Whether you prefer to keep it old school by heating your kernels on the hob, make it fast by zapping them in the microwave, or want to go all-out fancy with a standalone popcorn machine, we've got the best popcorn poppers available now.
