I’ve been watching a lot of movies at home over the last year, and popcorn is my healthy, low fat snack of choice. I used to buy microwaveable popcorn bags from the supermarket. However, I’ve learned they’re incredibly unhealthy due to the presence of perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) – which turn into perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) – and diacetyl.
It’s much healthier, safer and cheaper to make your own popcorn from kernels. And there are two main ways to do it: Air popper machines and microwaveable silicon bowls. So I decided to review both options.
