Works incredibly well
I am very impressed with this item! All the popcorn popped in less than 2 minutes in my microwave. I just put the kernels in the bowl, popped them, and added a little salt at the end. Next time I will probably add melted butter at the end for more flavor.

I really like that this popper is collapsible too. I had a glass microwave popcorn maker in the past that didn't pop the popcorn very well and it took up a lot of space in the cabinet. This one works much better.

Well done Lekue!
Saw an email from SLT that had this item on it and knew I had to buy it and try it. Works very well - pops in about 2 minutes. I had set my microwave for 3 minutes, but stopped it with 45 seconds left and had a few burnt pieces. Which means next time I'll set the zapper for 2 minutes. I LOVE that this is collapsible because I had the glass popcorn popper and broke it. it was also difficult to find a storage space for it. If you like the convenience of microwave popcorn, but not all the additives in store bought products, you need this bowl!

Love it!
I use it almost everyday for a healthy afternoon snack. I love it so much, I am buying them to make Popcorn Christmas Gift Baskets. I'll add popcorn, seasonings, and a bowl to the gift basket. Perfect!

Great popcorn!!
This is a wonderful invention - I love it!
Be sure to stop your microwave when there are 2 - 3 seconds between pops and nothing ever burns, which was a problem with other poppers. Yes, there are some old maids, but I'll happily sacrifice those kernels for unburned popcorn!
It's easy to clean and especially easy to store since it collapses. The last time I used it, I added some fine sea salt and a small amount of sugar to the popper and it tasted sensational. I'm looking forward to trying other seasoning, too.

Really fantastic product!
I received this as a gift and it works even better than I expected. Toss in a quarter-cup of kernels, a tablespoon of oil, a big pinch of salt and away you go. In my microwave, 2 minutes was perfect. You can hold the bowl even when it is very hot, and cleaning is is really easy. Stores in a slot above the microwave. Love this!

No Buyer's Remorse!
We just got this on a whim and absolutely love it! Popcorn tasted great, no burnt kernels, easy to use and clean. and no storage issues unlike the typical popcorn popper. No buyer's remorse with this product at all!

5 stairs but be careful of steam when removing
I love this to death. My favorite way to make and eat popcorn. The only problem is when you remove it from the microwave it is very easy to get a steam burn as the tendency is to grab the bowl by the top, therefore letting a little steam escape as you pull aimed directly at your finger. As long as you are aware you won't burn yourself, but just be careful.

Perfect popper!
This is the best microwave popcorn popper! In fact, just as good as stove popped, and much healthier! I repop the few remaining old maid kernels and they even pop! Great invention, and the bowl collapses for easy storage and the lid can be used to reheat other microwave foods! I bought additional poppers for the whole family.

Healthier popcorn
This is the best microwave popcorn popper! I can pop corn in it without oil, but I usually brush a tiny bit of oil on the bottom of the bowl before adding popcorn. It pops beautifully and then the few kernels that didn't pop can be repopped. When finished, the bowl collapses and storage is minimal.

Never make popcorn on the stove again!
Wow is this a great popcorn maker without oil. I use the 'popcorn' setting on my microwave and I watch carefully in order to immediately remove the popcorn maker as soon as the popping stops. The bowl is quite hot so I remove with oven mitts near the base of the maker as that's more stable than the floppy silicon sides and dump it upside down lid and all into my large popcorn bowl in order to get the corn out before any burn. The instructions call for 1/4 cup of oil but that is far too much. I have a feeling you could make it completely oil free and it would work. I went through a process of successively reducing the amount of oil I put in there and am down to 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil along with a pinch of sea salt and just under 1/2 cup of popcorn. I love this. The popcorn tastes delicious and the clean up is effortless due the tiny amount of oil. If you have a crowd wanting popcorn you would have to make 2 or 3 batches but well worth the trouble.

Joan L on Jul 10, 2016
Microwave bags are supposed to be less than healthy. I don't want a bulky popper that takes up a lot of storage space. Worth a try!
Christina H on Jul 5, 2016
Sounded good to me. This popcorn maker is pricey compared to several others, but this time I'm going for the brand. I believe that Lekue stands by their products. I have not found fault with any of their products. ( P.S. Red is my favorite color.)

Lynn M on Mar 9, 2016
I have a microwave popper which I'm not happy with. When the kernels really start to pop the pressure of all the popped corn popping up against the lid moves the lid and unpopped kernels land up outside of the bowl. So I'm hoping I won't have that problem with this one.
Eleanor G on Feb 22, 2016
Looks like an interesting alternative to hot air popper.

Read the blog and it sounded good and easy to use.
Debra H on Dec 28, 2015
We miss our occasional popcorn nights, now that we no longer have any of our old popcorn makers. We don't need the large volume any longer and this looks compact, easily storable, and is a material that seems to be safe.
Grammy B on Dec 19, 2015
I received this popcorn maker as a gift and I love it. I use it with coconut oil and it makes delicious popcorn.

I love popcorn, but not the commercial microwave kind. This should allow us to easily make tasty and healthy popcorn snacks.

I like that it is made of silicone and not glass.Looks easy to use and is collapsible. And could be used as the serving bowl. My wife should be happy with this since I broke her glass popper.

It was mentioned in a magazine article and when I searched i found It has a much better revue than the other one I was considering; even tho it is a little more expensive, i think it is a better product.

Rosemar W on Nov 26, 2015
We love popcorn but could no longer justify the store-bought microwave popcorn with all the risky chemicals, huge amounts of salt and unwanted calories. We wanted a healthy and simple way to to enjoy popcorn again. This popper is easy to use, makes fluffy, delicious popcorn and it is its own bowl. What's not to like?
Ann W on Nov 22, 2015
easy to use, clean up fast and make a truly healthy snack.

Breville instruction manual (page 10) says that popcorn cannot be popped in the microwave unless it is commercially packaged. I would love this silicone popper, but can I use it without damaging the microwave?
A shopper on Nov 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: If the Breville Microwave does not recommend it, then I wouldn't suggest risking it, as it would void your warranty.
The instructions mention using oil - is this necessary? Or can you use this popper without oil to keep it as healthy as possible?
Diana E on Nov 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We pop without oil (our recipe is 1/2 c. popcorn, 1 tsp. salt). Only caution is not to pop for too long - 3 minutes max on high works for us. Otherwise we get burnt kernels.
Can this item be used for other things, like heating soup in the microwave?
A shopper on Dec 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I wouldn't. I don't think it is sturdy enough for anything heavier than popcorn.
Does it hold 2 quarts of popped corn? Looks small?
Linda B on Nov 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It pops 1/3 cup of unpopped kernels, which makes about 3 quarts of popcorn.
Is this product BPA-free?
K P on Dec 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this popcorn popper is BPA free.
If anyone know the answer to this, it would be appreciated. 1000W Whirlpool microwave, I am currently using 1/4 cup kernels and one tbsp. of oil set at 2:10, and I am still getting about 70 kernels at the bottom that are burnt. I have put it at 2:30, but it totally burned the entire batch of popcorn. I really don't want to put it past 2:10 because that is where I am hearing pops more than 2-3 seconds apart. Help?
A shopper on May 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I had the same problem with my Bosch 1000w, so I reduced the heat to setting 8. Most of the kernels pop now and nothing gets burned. It takes changer though, almost 4 minutes for me.
Will the Lekue Popcorn Maker work in my 1000 watt microwave?
Betsy T on Dec 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but only cook at 800 watts by lowering the power and cooking for 2 minutes, the time indicated. I have a 1200 watt microwave and I cook popcorn at power 5, for 2 minutes.
can you use oil in it?
A shopper on Dec 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can use oil. In fact the recipes included with the popper recommend using 1T of oil for best flavor. I have even added a combination of oil and butter plus fluer de sel so that the popped corn has a nice buttery/salty flavor without without having to drizzle and deal with sogginess. This is the best popper and I highly recommend it.
can you use it in a 700 watt microwave? Allowed in residence halls/dorms?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 3 tablespoons of popcorn pop in 2.5 minutes in my 1100 watt microwave. That would be equivalent to 3.56 minutes in a 700 watt oven
There are online calculators to adjust other recipes by searching for cooking time by microwave watt.
Be sure the 6" height will fit your microwave.
By the way, it makes fabulous popcorn! There are some old maids, but it you stop it when there are 2 or 3 seconds between pops , it never burns anything! I love that it collapses and is easy to wash, too. Good luck!
does this contain bpa?
A shopper on Jan 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. It's made of silicone, which is naturally BPA free.
How do I clean burnt popcorn smell from the bowl and lid?
James S on Jan 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I suggest soaking the popper bowl and lid in hot, soapy water with a TBSP of baking soda added to the wash water, for about an hour, then run it through a dishwasher cycle. I wash mine in the dishwasher each time I use it.
