  1. Mine came out perfectly. It is key to heat the oil first then keep the pan moving until the popcorn stops. Otherwise you end up with burned sugar on the bottom of the pan.
  2. Easy and excellent Grandchildren love it.
  3. Absolutely fantastic. Used coconut oil and it tasted great. Took a while to start popping, so be patient. Reduced the salt to 1/2 tsp and still tasted wonderful. As other reviews mention, keep shaking the pot. Wonderful recipe, thank you so much for sharing!
  4. Oh my! I can't believe this;I just made it.I tried it 4times before and my sugar got burnt.Thank you so much. Advice:Ensure you keep shaking the pot
  5. Excellent & Simple to make at home. Big hit! Thank you.
