By BBC Food: Best popcorn makers to buy for your next movie night


Neat and attractive, this popcorn maker has a small footprint making it ideal to tuck away in the cupboard between uses. It doesn’t come with a bowl but that contributes to its storability. The Sensio can pop up to 80g of corn using a level measuring cup.

We popped 60g in 1 min 45. The measuring cup doubles as the lid of the machine and because it’s made of clear plastic, it’s possible to view the popping chamber to see when the machine is done, although as with all machines if the popping stops it’s time to switch off even if there are a few kernels left.
