This implement removes the kernels in less time than other tools due to the wide cutting surface.

Not as good as deep fat fried (duh), but better than a cookie sheet as does not require as much oil for the same browning effect. Experiment with temperature.

Excellent product for the purpose for which it is desgned. The outlet on the base is convenient for a series of lights or if one is short on outlets. The arm adjustment mechanisms should be fitted w/ some kind of wingnut, but works ok.
