Today's kids are growing up thinking that popcorn comes from a tri-fold bag. While microwave popcorn may be the most convenient way to cook up everyone's favorite treat, it's not the most natural, thanks to the added chemicals, fake butter flavorings and wasteful packaging. Popping popcorn yourself on the stovetop is an option (and nostalgic), but the required oil makes things messy and adds calories. We went looking for a simple, healthy and affordable alternative- and we found it at Catamount Glass.

Real butter is optional, and melts in the included silicone tray as the kernels are popped. The larger container comes with a handle, and the smaller size is ideal for space-saver microwaves.

The 31-year-old company first made beakers for schools and laboratories, but switched to designing cookware when Alain saw the need for a sturdy alternative to existing glass cookware. We're glad Catamount made the transition into the kitchen. Movie night just got tastier.
