Like any popcorn bowl, you can fill the Lekue Collapsible Popcorn Maker with your favorite movie night snack, then nuke it inside the microwave to get all the kernels popping. Unlike them, the bowl can collapse into a compact, allowing you to dump it in the drawer for easy storage.
During use, the bowl measures a generous 8 x 5 inches (diameter x height), allowing you to fill it with a good load of the salted and buttered snack. Once you’re done (and, hopefully, washed the bowl clean), you simply push down to collapse it into a 2-inch height, making it easy to find space for even in the most crowded kitchens.
The Lekue Collapsible Popcorn Maker comes with kernel fill lines, so you can fill it with just enough corn to avoid overflowing once everything’s popped. A suction lid ensures any popcorn flying out will stay confined to the bowl, with a silicone construction allowing you to hold the bowl even right after a 3-minute microwave nuking. Do note, you should grab the bowl on the sides not the top, unless you want to get steam burn as soon as you take off the lid (hey, maybe some guys are into that). It comes with a recipe book for those who want to change up the same old boring butter and salt mix they do every time, throwing in recipes for using everything from curry to honey to various herbs and spices.
Available now, the Lekue Collapsible Popcorn Maker is priced at $20.
