Microwave popcorn has raised health alarms over its butter flavoring and potentially carcinogenic nonstick coating for years, and those gourmet, flavored, pre-popped bags can get pricey. The healthiest and most cost-effective way to enjoy popcorn is simply to make it at home and flavor it with any number of salty or sweet concoctions. Cheapism’s top picks for popcorn poppers are all less than $30. They include air-popped, stovetop, and electric poppers (the last two types require a bit of oil). Whichever you prefer, making popcorn at home with one of these machines is tasty, cheap, and easy.
