    I'm Australian and I have a popcorn maker. They're pretty dope. I've had mine for like eight years and it still works fine, got it for like $15AUD (I think that's like £8) at kmart

            We used a hot air popper at daycamp. Inside the lodge we set the kids around it, took the top off (that directs the popcorn down to the bowl) and thus it shot popcorn in all directions. Anything they caught they could eat. It was much fun.

                That salad cutter thing refers to "salad" as a head of lettuce. Not a tossed salad.

                          For what it's worth, I like to use the popcorn maker to roast raw coffee beans, works amazingly well.

                            The measurement bowl is many times are you only weighing or measuring one thing? There is probably a zeroing function, but measuring separately is beneficial. There is a lot of value in a scale that you can use with any bowl or container...why would you only limit yourself to one?

                              People don't know how to use a knife any more. That's why they need safety features. Also cutting yourself on a sharp knife isn't that bad.

                                      Are air poppers not common? I've had one since I was a child, as have seen them at friends houses as well...

                                        The popcorn maker can also be used to roast coffee. You may need to extend the spout going up with a can. You don’t want the coffee beans going out.

                                          Kitchen gadget review suggestion: citrus mister. Green silicone pump thingy that screws into a lemon / lime / etc. for spritzing citrus juice on food. 7 quid on amazon.

                                                  I love the air popper. Add some butter spray and some cinnamon/sugar mix (I use Splenda) and it's great!

                                                    I feel like the salad cutter would be really good for young kids learning to cook. Keeps them safe and teaches them out knives and cutting ect.

                                                      I think its great for people who are older as well with nervous conditions that make them shake or people who AREN'T a chef.

                                                    There's a new nonstick pan. Hex something or other. Supposedly, you can use metal utensils with it. Can you review that?

                                                      That popcorn maker I don't consider a gadget as that was what I grew up using and thought that was how you were supposed to make popcorn.

                                                        Yeah, it's just an air popper. It's as much of a gadget as a toaster

                                                          I’d use the salad thing just for saving time.

                                                            I have one that I swear my mom picked up in the 70s it's so yellowed and old. You know that yellow colour old appliances have? Yeah that. Still makes perfect air-popped popcorn like it was brand spanking new. We even have a little dish on top that uses that hot air to make melted butter.

Added to their autism, they have very severe learning disabilities and most have other challenges such as cerebral palsy, Sturge-Weber Syndrome and other conditions which make their motor skills and grip suffer. I try to get them involved in a weekly cooking session and something like that salad bowl in different sizes would greatly help them for chopping just about anything if it were the right size.
