Popcorn is a must for a movie night or watching March Madness at home. The new silicone Lékué PopCorn Maker ($20), which collapses for space-saving storage, pops kernels in the microwave in under three minutes without oil. Fill the bright orange bowl with ⅓ cup of kernels and they’ll pop to 10 cups of fluffy popcorn. Add spices or herbs, or give in to butter or a drizzle of melted chocolate. Then head back to the TV. Available at KitchenWares by Blackstones, 215 Newbury St., Boston, 857-366-4237; Tags Hardware, 29 White St., Cambridge, 617-868-7711; Sur La Table locations, or go to www.lekueusa.com.
