The machine isn't totally necessary unless you want it for aesthetics, or for its ability to keep popcorn warm. You can get similar results by making it homemade on the stove-top though and you'd save a lot of money. Easier clean-up, too.

That said, I'm not too sure about good popcorn machines, but here are some popular options for good popping oil, salt, and kernels:




And if you're interested in the stove-top method, I wrote a blog about the technique here:


Happy popping!

I have the air popper and really enjoy it. It's a single use device but I use it all the time. Here's what I do and everyone seems to love it:

  1. Coconut oil on top to melt. Add before the next ingredients so it sticks.

  2. Fine salt. The Flavacol might work, but I prefer a finely ground salt. I use this. Any salt will work, that was just the finest salt they had at the grocery.

  3. Costco's No-Salt Seasoning. I love this stuff. It's about $8 or so for one container. $14 on Amazon (it'll last a while). I use it on all sorts of things.

  4. Nutritional yeast. I get it from Trader Joe's but most groceries will have it. Get the smallest container you can, you won't need much. Put in an empty shaker.

  5. I've only tried two types of popcorn. Bob Redmill White Popcorn and Trader Joe's Yellow. I prefer Trader Joe's Yellow so far. It seems to pop better with less kernels. Either way, a small bag lasts forever. It took me 3 years to finish this.

I'd be interested in these volumes of write-ups about the butter.

Honestly I thought regular, straight butter was fine, but now I'm questioning this notion. I have a commercial counter-top heated butter dispenser for my backyard movie nights that has worked great, but I have to shorten the pump range to the smallest setting because too much real butter ruins the popcorn and people aren't used to this.

Also, just for the sake of an alternative to those mentioned, I buy Snappy Popcorn from Amazon. Iowa business. It's pretty good. Coconut oil. About 95% pop ratio.

u/Ninjabackwards · 1 pointr/mealtimevideos

I literally had no interest in popcorn until this video.

This video inspired me to try out some over priced gourmet popcorn.

Spoiler alert: Not worth the price

That said, it was cool to try and compare the tastes between them.

I think the most importorant thing to do with popcorn is to NOT go with the microwave bags. Stick to stove top. Orville Redenbacher is a cheap(and honestly the way to go) route.

I don't have much experience with dry poppers though I want one.

I like popcorn.

Buy a microwaveable popcorn bowl for $15 and a big jug of popcorn for $15 at Sam's or Costco. The bowl is a one-time purchase and the popcorn comes out to 20 cents per bowl.

I add a touch of oil to the popcorn before microwaving, but it's not needed (and makes it a little tougher to clean). Otherwise add salt and/or seasoning and you're good to go.

It's the perfect "I'm hungry but don't want a whole meal" option or "It's 11pm and I need a snack to get me through the next few hours of studying" option.

These popcorn poppers are amazing!! You can even buy the oil/ butter flavor stuff! I use a ton of regular butter because IDGAF and it's delicious but for me, this whole set up is better than movie theater popcorn. Just sayin!

u/homeboi808 · 1 pointr/explainlikeimfive

For one, it's popped the "regular way" and the butter flavor is likely different. Even though it's super unhealthy, buy microwave popcorn with "movie theater butter flavor", and that should taste more similar.

On a related note, I use an air-popper (I use the #1 Best-Seller on Amazon) and I love it. It is much cheaper in the long run. The downside though is you have to apply butter/olive oil/coconut oil/peanut oil and salt after the fact, which takes some added time. Stove popping is also good, but I don't want to deal with cleaning a pot every time I make popcorn. I use extra virgin olive oil because it's healthier and it still tastes good (different type of taste than movie theater butter flavor, but still good). If you want to air-pop and want "movie theater flavor", you can buy Orville Redenbacher's Buttery Popping/Topping Oil.

Having a nice, quiet night in would be a real treat for us!

We'd play some board games and make popcorn

u/SomeGuyNamedPaul · 2 pointsr/hometheater

I use a West Bend Stir Crazy, pre-portioned packets from Great Northern Popcorn, a little Flavacol flavored salt, and some additional coconut oil. The coconut oil is the most important ingredient in giving it that movie theater flavor.

The popcorn:

u/grewapair · 30 pointsr/movies

It's called flavacol, a salt that sticks to popcorn better, and you can buy it on Amazon.com. Add it to Snappy white popcorn and you'll have something better than the movie theater.

This is what I use at home:

u/DaButtNakidWunda · 1 pointr/Futurology


Not actually kernel-less popcorn (obvi), but there is popcorn that is considered hulless. You get everything you love about popcorn without having it get stuck in your teeth or cutting your gums!


u/load_more_comets · 1 pointr/oddlysatisfying

Thanks for the recommendation. I just like air poppers because it's so convenient though. No need to wash anything after you pop, just empty the unpopped kernels and done. I will certainly try Orvilles. Can you confirm if this is the one?

u/TheOleRedditAsshole · 6 pointsr/politics

Here and Here

I used one of these back in high school, when I ran then Sno-Cone/Popcorn stand at the local minor league baseball stadium. The popcorn is pretty damn good.

u/camopdude · 1 pointr/AskReddit

Just this and this with a little salt is all you need. Splash in a little of this with regular oil of your choice for buttery goodness.

u/andrewthemexican · 2 pointsr/movies

I top my popcorn at home with this and that's what brought it over the edge for me. So damn good.

u/whiskeyjane45 · 1 pointr/Cooking

I'm pregnant and need snacks fast so I use [this] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DV34I42/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_c.XQzbKCNM7H3) and Flavacol for my mid-afternoon munchie fix. I get it at Walmart or HEB and it is not that expensive, yikes

u/everlong44 · 1 pointr/IAmA

Just buy some decent quality popcorn (use 1/4-1/2 cup): http://www.amazon.com/Snappy-White-Popcorn-4-Pounds/dp/B00382UXU4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1394636740&sr=8-1&keywords=popcorn

Get some pure coconut oil (use 2-4 Tablespoons): http://www.amazon.com/Viva-Labs-Organic-Virgin-Coconut/dp/B00DS842HS/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1394636782&sr=8-3&keywords=coconut+oil

And some flavacol salt that's used by some movie theaters (use 1/2-1 teaspoon): http://www.amazon.com/Gold-Medal-Prod-Flavacol-Seasoning/dp/B004W8LT10/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1394636795&sr=8-6&keywords=coconut+oil+popcorn

And that's it! Get a big pot and put it on the stove... put the coconut oil in and let it melt. Add the flavacol salt and stir a little. Put one kernel in and wait until it pops... once it does just put all the corn in and turn it off when it stops popping every 3 seconds or so. Best popcorn around.

u/iamafucktard · 3 pointsr/DIY


Its at most grocery stores. Get a tub of kernels that will be right next to it and use a forced air popper. Add oil and salt once popped.
