Editor's Notes

November 13, 2018:

These units are generally very simple, with either a single button for operation or no button at all, so the biggest concern when selecting one is the mess it might make. The top units are not only easy to clean, but also have consistent air flow so you don't have to spend time on your knees picking up stray kernels that were shot on the floor.
