Below are some of my top picks for red popcorn makers to make homemade popcorn. Popcorn makers certainly come in a wide range of different types of popcorn makers. Choose from stove-top, microwave or retro models, all are capable of producing tasty popcorn for the whole family.
Nostalgia Popcorn Makers
Nostalgia has produced an amazing range of popcorn poppers. Some have modern styling, but there are still models that have a vintage circus fair look.

Stove Top Popcorn Poppers
Stove top popcorn poppers make producing popcorn the traditional way so easy. They all have some kind of stirring mechanism. Using the stirrer will help to ensure all the popcorn is evenly exposed to the heat of the stove. This reduces the number of uncooked corn kernels left at the bottom, I hate that!

Old Fashioned Popcorn Poppers
Vintage or Retro Popcorn Makers – Although these popcorn makers are modern they have been designed to look like the popcorn makers you get at the cinema or fairs. However, they have been miniaturized so that they can set on your countertop. Just fill the kettle with corn kernels and oil and the machine will do the rest for you.

Best Microwave Popcorn Makers
Microwave Popcorn Poppers – red. One of the cheapest ways of making popcorn is to do this in a microwave oven. You could opt to buy the bags of microwavable kernels already in a bag, but the advantage of doing it yourself is you know exactly what has gone into your popcorn.

Small Red Popcorn Makers
Small Red Popcorn Makers – these handy little popcorn makers are small enough to store in a cupboard ready to be brought out when you want to make some popcorn. Some of these models can make popcorn using heat from hot air. This means you can produce plenty of popcorn without any extra fat. Great if you are following a low-fat diet.
Nostalgia Electrics Circus Cart Popcorn Maker
All the fun of the circus. I could see this product being used at a circus themed children’s party. Remeber it can be used for adult parties as well. Great for catering for large groups of people.
Whirley Pop Stovetop 6 Quart Popcorn Popper
If you prefer to make your popcorn the traditional way on the stove top (and some say this is the best way) then this lovely retro popcorn popper may be the best choice for you. Would look great in a kitchen with red kitchen accessories.

The Stir Crazy Red Popcorn Maker is a stand alone red kitchen appliance that you just fill with popcorn kernels and oil and just set and forget. The machine will automatically make your popcorn. Features include a removable dishwasher safe heating plate which is also non-stick. The see through domed lid can also double up as a popcorn serving bowl.
