I love this little popcorn popper! There is not a lot of space in my kitchen so I need appliances that are easy to store and smaller. This is perfect! It makes popcorn in smaller batches so I don't over do it since I am trying to eat healthier snacks with yummy popcorn! I love home popped popcorn because it is healthier and I can flavor it to my liking. I can easily store it in my pantry and it takes a little bit of space. This is a great popcorn popper for someone with limited counter or kitchen space in their home. One note of caution: beware of the machine when it is in use. It gets hot so you want to be careful with the little ones.
