that's a pretty good deal

buy it and control your salt and oil (I like extra virgin olive oil) intake! (sometimes I'll eat it with no oil no salt)

your wallet and health will thank you.

Any recommendations for specific kernels?

What does it mean pops with hot air not oil? Aren't all popcorn poppers of this style pop with hot air? Or they're just comparing to stovetop and microwave bag versions?

Also, is this the best one of this style of popper? Is it the best popcorn popper of any style?

Yes. This style is all hot air. It’s in comparison to other methods.

I have this one. Pops hot air. Works great, but needs some kind of flap on the front. A couple hot unpopped kernals fly out every time I use it.

Sounds like a new game to play with the kids.

, which is typical for this type/style of popper.

When I had one of these hot air poppers, what I did was tilt the popper 45 degrees, to prevent the kernels from ricocheting out. Once you get enough popped, you can set it back flat (for awhile), since the popped ones act as a soft wall for the unpopped ones. This popper has a smaller opening than mine, so it may not be as bad.

Some reviews say there is bpa and the plastic was melting due to the heat. I was considering getting it too but think I will pass and just keep cooking on the stove.

I recently bought this box of 12-pack OR kernels:

https://www.amazon.ca/Orville-Redenbach ... B007HQTTZW

Temporarily OOS and it's been lower, but $43.45 / 12 = $3.62 jar is still good and I was not charged any sales tax:

Order Summary
Items: CDN$ 43.45
Shipping & Handling: CDN$ 5.90
FREE Shipping: -CDN$ 5.90
Total before tax: CDN$ 43.45
Estimated GST/HST: CDN$ 0.00
Estimated PST/RST/QST: CDN$ 0.00
Order Total: CDN$ 43.45

They also keep well (typically 6 months, but since they are sealed, you can go way beyond), so if you don't eat a lot of popcorn like me, they will last you a long while.

Works perfect with the Presto.

When second hand stores (value village, tallize, goodwill) open these are usually $5 and outnumbered only by coffee makers. I used to roast coffee in a popcorn popper.

throwing in popcorn into a wok or a metal stainless steel bowl or even a pot with a bit of neutral oil or peanut oil should do the trick without having to buy this.

I mean, is it really that big of a deal though? Like going for microwave bowl style instead of hot air popper just because some kernels fly out? I mean you can get a higher sided bowl or just pick it off the table.

Also, the microwave bowl style you have to add oil to pop right?
