The Waring Popcorn Maker with Melting Pot creates luxurious snacks

Waring Popcorn Maker

During this holiday time of the year, we give in to pressure and gorge ourselves on sweets. Everyone is making cookies, fudge and hot chocolate, so we relent under the mask of it being the holidays. Our New Year’s resolution is to work off the weight we’ve gained, and do it all over again next year. If you know you’ll be sucked into this cycle regardless, then you may as well make it easier to access your goodies.

Popcorn can actually be a light and tasty snack, but it always tastes better when laden down with chocolate, caramel, butter, or any other fatty or sugary coating. The Waring Popcorn Maker with Melting Pot will not only give you fresh popcorn, but also provides a lift-out aluminum pot with a clear lid which can heat your desired topping. This machine can make up to 20 cups of popcorn in one go, and has a motorized stirrer to keep the corn moving so that it will be popped to perfection. Using a halogen heating system, the cook time will be minimal so you can get to your treats that much faster.

This comes with a vented plastic lid that will keep the popcorn fresh, and can act as a serving bowl when the popping process is complete. Seeing that the whole idea is to pour gooey sticky sweet things on your popcorn, a bowl with holes is likely not your best option. You’ll be looking at $129.95 for this popcorn maker. Considering that popcorn with butter is good year-round, this could be a worthy purchase if getting a normal popcorn maker and heating your butter on the stove doesn’t interest you.
