      This is very good and every bit as easy as the recipe says it is. I just made 2 batches. The first I made just as described below. I kept having to add minutes to the 'Popcorn' setting so the second batch, which was made for my teenage grandson and my nephew of the same age, I added a bit more oil (I used Canola oil) and sprinkled a little bit of sea salt in the bag and I set the microwave for 5 minutes. It took about 4 minutes so the 5 minute setting is much better for me with my microwave. Thank you for posting this easy to prepare and easy clean-up recipe!
