Method One

  1. Pour a quarter cup of popcorn kernels into a paper bag.
  2. Fold the top of the bag three times.
  3. Place the paper bag in the microwave.
  4. Set the timer for 40 to 60 seconds. (mine took 3-4 minutes)
  5. Wait and have fun.
  6. Remove the bag and pour the popcorn into a dish.
  7. Cook unbaked kernels for about 15 to 20 seconds.
  8. Add the extra popcorn to the other batch.
  9. Pour melted butter and salt onto the popcorn.
  10. Serve.
Method Two
  1. Take a frying pan and a fitting lid.
  2. Put some grease (canola oil for example) in it to make sure your corns won't stick to your pan.
  3. Wait until the pan is hot--you can add 1 or 2 kernels to the pan as it heats up... when they pop, the pan is hot enough to add the rest of the corn
  4. Put in the corns, make sure you use corns which are meant to use in a pan.
  5. Put on the lid fast! Make sure no corns flip out. Shake your pan a few times to make sure all corns are loose.
  6. Now you hear a lot of pops, just wait until all sound is gone.
  7. When nothing happens quickly take of the pan and put your corns in a bowl.
  8. Put on salt/sugar.
  9. Serve.
Method Three
  1. Buy some microwave popcorn.
  2. Follow the instructions.
  3. Serve.

Do you need to add anything to the popcorn machine

Depends on your machine. What bran/model dso you have? If it is an air popper, NO. Adding anything will damage the machine.

If your machine is not an air popper then you likely need to add some oil. I currently have a WestBend Stir Crazy Popcorn Popper. You use a tablespoon of oil for each 1/4 cup of popcorn in the bottom of the popper. See here; an instruction manual is available.

You are best to check with the manufacturer of your popccorn popper.

No operating instructions

No oil needed - is hot air popper. Use round lid on top to measure popcorn, pour popcorn into metal part in center of popper.
