    Oil-free popcorn can be made with this popcorn maker from Cuisinart. It offers buyers a healthier option to pop kernels. To cook popcorn, put corn kernels in the popping chamber and leave a bowl under the chute to catch the cooked product.

    The motorized stirring arm of this popcorn maker maximizes popping by evening out the heat distribution of the kernels on its nonstick popping plate. It also has a butter well on the lid for users to flavor the popcorn evenly during cooking.
