Likely to be a hit in the run-up to this year’s World Cup is this fun Football popcorn maker from Giles & Posner, to be shown at Exclusively Housewares.
The football-shaped hot-air popcorn maker opens up to reveal the hopper/heater, and the themed lid doubles as a dishwasher-proof bowl for the fresh popcorn.
It is simple to operate: use the spoon provided to measure the quantity of popcorn kernels required and pour into the central chamber. Switch on the power and the popcorn is blown out through the opening of the clear cover and into the bowl.
Using hot air instead of oil, the product produces a healthier finished product, but there is a built-in butter tray which sits over the popcorn, the heat from the hopper/heater melting it, so that it can be poured over the popcorn.
The product transforms kernels into bowls full of popcorn in minutes at a cost of less than 8p per bowl.
