oil in a pot the only way to go... don't really understand the newfangled popcorn making contraptions... the "old school way" not hard.

I used to make popcorn in a pan w/oil but after having to scrape out the burned on corn I switched to hot air poppers.

You might want to try heating the hot air popper before you pour the popcorn in. I find that helps and my son likes it better. Good luck!

We have one of these. It does a good job, the popcorn is much more flavorful and moist than the gawdawful hot air stuff, and my grandkids love to watch it work.

I buy the local low-fat popcorn that is made for the microwave. 2 minutes, and zero calories, and $.33 a bag. What is so wrong with that?


If eating tasty stuff is a sin, I am certainly going south.
