Popcorn is a great snack to have when watching movies or just relaxing. When people are dieting, it can be hard for them to choose what to eat and what to avoid. Unbuttered popcorn is considered to be light, easy to digest food. Unbuttered popcorn contains fewer calories and has enough fiber to make it an ideal diet snack. Hot air popcorn poppers are the best option for diet conscious people, as they require no oil or butter.
Plain popcorn by itself can be quite uninteresting if eaten regularly. Many flavors, such as caramel, plain salted, tomato, cheese, dill pickle, salt and vinegar, cheese, and white cheddar, transform popcorn into a versatile snack. Plain salted popcorn can also be mixed with brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic and onion salt, iced tea mix, peanuts or raisins. They all are options to make the snack a bit more savory.
It is always advisable to keep in mind that hot air popcorn should be served right away; otherwise it could become stale and soggy. Air popped popcorn pops best at approximately 400 degrees. It is always better not to pop popcorns in butter, as it can burn the kernels before they get hot enough to pop. Any cooking oil can be used to make traditional popcorn, but it is always better to use light oil to pop corn. Oil should cover the bottom of the pan. However, people can always choose air poppers. Moreover, air popcorn is cheap and does not burn.
There are electric hot air popcorn machines that are used to pop corn. There is no need to use oil in these machines, and, as a result, this popcorn is much healthier and can be a low-calorie treat. These machines work much faster and are considered to be more economical than making popcorn in the microwave.
People can enjoy a hot, healthy, and delicious popcorn treat with these machines. They leave almost no popcorn unpopped. These machines normally carry a 2-year warranty. Manufacturers also provide instructions and guidelines that have to be followed in order for the machines to give long and trouble-free service.
