Whether your weekend plans typically include popcorn and a movie or your weeknights need a quick savory snack, an air-popped popcorn machine is definitely worth adding to your countertop. We recently tested out 10 different air-pop popcorn machines and narrowed the results down to three favorites, and, right now, one of them is under $20 at Amazon.

In testing, we found that the Dash Hot Air Popcorn Maker turned out remarkably thorough results — after popping, there were just two un-popped kernels left! We also loved the compact size of this countertop popper, and the narrow spout that makes it easy to guide kernels directly into the bowl. Plus, the included measuring cup doubles as a butter warmer, so you can melt a tasty topping while your popcorn pops.

Hundreds of five-star reviews on Amazon praise this popcorn maker, too. Customers love how easy it is to use and clean and its space-saving design. Just use the measuring cup to add kernels to the heating chamber, then push the one-touch "start" button. That's it! With no oil needed, you can make up to 16 cups of popcorn using only hot air then toss the popping chute and butter tray into the dishwasher for easy cleanup.

A one-year manufacturer warranty lets you pop with peace of mind, and the included recipe book will move you to take your popcorn to the next level (think s'mores style, cheddar-topped and so much more!).

Get popping this time tomorrow with Amazon's one-day shipping option, or stock up on this Dash machine for bridal shower gifts, housewarming presents and more. And, if you ever get bored of buttery popcorn, the Food Network test kitchen is here to inspire you with sriracha, bacon and so much more.
