This $13 Popcorn Hack Has Racked Up Nearly 5 Million Views on TikTok
Along with introducing us to the next generation of internet stars and viral dances, TikTok is a reliable spot to find different tricks and tips on pretty much anything. You can explore videos on a wide range of topics, from color-changing lipstick to no-nonsense watermelon slicers that might just revolutionize your life. Among our favorite product reviews: a popcorn popper that’s been watched close to 5 million times.
TikTok user @colleenlepp uploaded a video of herself using the gadget and in just a few months it became a viral hit, received more than 350,000 likes, then sold out in a bunch of different styles and colors. The adorable popper takes all of the guesswork out of popping your own kernels, and saves a bunch of time since it’s microwavable.
“All you have to do is pour the kernels in, add a little pad of butter, pop it in the microwave for a solid three minutes, and wait,” @colleenlepp says in her video. “It’s no muss, no fuss. You get amazing air-popped popcorn. It’s so simple.”

TikTok users aren’t the only ones impressed by this kitchen tool. More than 11,000 Amazon shoppers have given the gadget a solid 4.4-star rating — 7,000 reviewers have awarded it a perfect 5 out of 5.
“I love popcorn and wanted to have more control [over] what’s on it than what you get when you buy the boxed popcorn,” wrote one reviewer. “I was surprised to find it didn’t require any oil to pop, which makes it a lot healthier! It’s also just enough for one person (who really loves popcorn). It’s very easy to use and popped all but six kernels, which amazed me. Naturally, I added butter, which was very easy.”
Another plus? The tool is dishwasher safe. There’s nothing better than a hack that saves you time in prepwork and in cleaning.
This popper is something any popcorn fanatic can use, and given that the holidays are right around the corner, it would make for a great gift (according to Amazon, this gizmo will arrive before Christmas if you order it now). Pop on down below to grab the viral device before it sells out.
