Although you can find popcorn at any sports stadium or concert venue, there’s no doubt that the snack belongs to the cinema. No movie theater is complete without sticky floors and the smell of overly-buttered popcorn. While a popcorn machine may not be something your movie marathoner would buy for themselves, that makes it an even more delightful gift.
If you’re looking for something a bit more sleek and functional, Presto’s PopLite Hot Air Countertop Popcorn Machine is the overall best choice. Quick and efficient, this popper uses air, not oil, to make gourmet corn in less than three minutes. On the other hand, something with more of a fun, throwback vibe, like Nostalgia’s Vintage Collection Kettle Countertop Popcorn Machine, also makes a great gift. Countertop friendly and straight from the summertime boardwalk of your youth, this machine makes 10-cups of buttery corn per batch, making it a great choice if the giftee loves to host movie nights.
