Nothing better then settling down to watch a movie with a big bowl of popcorn sitting in your lap. My mouth is watering just thinking about it, the smell that lingers in your house. But there is one thing I don’t like when cooking popcorn, is the amount of oil/butter that is used in certain brands. It really can’t be good for the family.
I was sent the Superstar Popcorn Maker This product retails for about $20.00 but can differ from store to store.  You can buy these from selected Coles, Woolworths , Big W and Store. You can also get also purchase online from
What makes this contraption so great is to cook the perfect popcorn I don’t even need one single drop of oil.
 “There is often a perception that popcorn is junk food that can only be tasty when it’s covered in butter, oil and salt, usually consumed at the movies – we’re here to say that’s not true,” said Mr Adrian Cursio, CEO of Starmaid® International.
When you pop your corn this way  (air popped) it is gluten free, making it the ideal snack for those with a gluten intolerance or even coeliac disease.
I know there are mummies and daddies out there that love their popcorn buttery or even salty, you can certainly add anything you like to your popcorn at the end. For example in my house when the popcorn is made, I take a little bowl for myself and then add popcorn butter salt to the remaining as the family doesn’t like their popcorn plain.
It is so easy to make the actual popcorn as well, all you have to do is:
1.           Pop the desired amount of popcorn into the super scoop, putting as much or as little as you would like.
2.         Put the container with the super scoop in the microwave, lid on of about 2 and half minutes (sometimes more or less depending on you microwave.) and allow the kernels to pop away.
3.         Take your Superstar Popcorn maker out and enjoy.
This is one of the main reasons I love this great idea, as there is no need for excess mess. The maker doubles as a great bowl once all popcorn has been popped.
The Superstar Popcorn Maker® is BPA and lead-free and is child-friendly, using heat-resistant material and an easy plastic scoop. The product’s smart design allows for easy serving, cleaning and storage.
The product is Australian-made with premium food grade microwave-safe material, and can be easily cleaned in the top-rack of the dishwasher.
I love the shape of this container, its white in colour with a clear lid. It has a modern retro feel to it for some reason (I think because of its actual shape.)
 It is also reusable, so it is certainly money well spent.
