The Hello Kitty Popcorn Maker Serves up Snacks While Looking Cute

— November 25, 2012 — Art & Design
For the fan of this classic kitty and of salty snacks, the Hello Kitty popcorn maker is the perfect addition to any kitchen.

The movie theatre-grade popper features a 4-oz steel kettle with a built-in stirring arm that will produce heaps of the buttery treat in a flash. The perforated floor of the machine ensures that all unpopped kernels will be sifted out as opposed to ending up in your bowl as an unwanted crunchy surprise. Your freshly popped snack will stay toasty warm because of the incorporated warming light that is hidden in the top of the machine.

Fans of Hello Kitty are sure to go wild over this appliance that not only produces high-quality popcorn but also adds a playful touch to any kitchen, rec room or home theater.
