But you flip this crank and it frequently agitates the popcorn kernels on the backside of the pot that is on the range. You put the pot on the range, clearly. And in about two or three minutes, you might have freshly popped popcorn, only a half cup of popcorn kernels, and a little bit little bit of oil or butter or no matter, and also you simply maintain turning the factor till you possibly can’t flip the deal with anymore as a result of the bowl is stuffed with popcorn.
It’s freshly popped, it is able to salt, it is unbelievable. And additionally, it is not the healthiest, relying on the oil you employ.
