You can use various kernels, usually dirt cheap in various supermarkets etc

Beware this thing is really loud and wont pop alot of the kernels as they will shoot out when the it starts popping from youtube videos on it.
Probably better of getting this one amazon.co.uk/d/P…APB doesn't seem to throw out as many kernels and is cheaper!
I prefer just putting the kernels into the microwave and nuking them for 1-2min. Once the popping slows down most the kernels have popped.

does this actually work
A dry saucepan with the lid on will do this job. Don't waste your money.
I've got this one and its very good, fast and convenient to make the popcorn and you put the butter or whatever you want to coat them in the top cup after first using it to measure and drop in the right amount of seeds. It's a good system but like Krooner has said you can use a dry saucepan or better still use oil/butter in the saucepan and flavour how you want. Nothing water based of course has to be oil/fat based. Maybe a mixture of oil and treacle. I don't think the microwave is as good it tends to burn the popcorn more but this might vary with the microwave. Mine will pop some quickly and by the time the last seeds have popped the first popped one's are slightly singed.
I've had a few of this type and they all failed pretty quickly.
The value of it will entirely be on how good the warranty actually turns out to be.
The other issue with the hot air ones in my experience is anything you put on them (salt, sugar etc) doesnt stick to the popped kernels in the same way as when done with oil in a pan.
Just use a saucepan with a cover. I had one of these machines, and it wasn't great.
Has anyone fonund a supermarket yet that sells the kernels? Which one?
Doesn't taste as good, salt or sugar doesn't stick well.

Larger branches of Asda.

Failing that, there's always Holland and Bull-****.

You can buy kernels in larger Asda stores & Sainsbury's.

However these machines are awful imo. A dry pan on the hob does the same job but better.

No popcorn made without oil will taste nice though, to make popcorn perfectly use either groundnut oil or coconut oil in a large pan, heat oil with one kernel in. When it pops add kernels to just cover the base of the pan. Add salt to taste, or if you must, some of those sweet popcorn flavour packets. Keep spinning the pan to make them heat evenly & put lid on pan leaving a small gap to let out steam.

Takes less than five minutes & makes perfect popcorn for a fraction of the cost of either pre-popped or microwave popcorn, without the cost of a new machine!

I have a pop corn maker not this model. Had it for years. Didn't think it would be great but any how I threw in a few kernals and it was noisey. Sufficed to say the kernels popped quite well and as they're light they fall out the top very easily while any unpopped kernals remain at the base until they pop.

They work.

No, they thought they'd make something that does nothing at all.
Popcorn kernels are sold in my local Home Bargains & Tescos...
Heat for the deal. Although I wouldn't personally bother (more kitchen clutter)...
