Are you ready to make your movie night more special with homemade popcorn? With just 3 ingredients and 1 pot, you can have delicious popcorn ready in just 5 minutes! Let us show you how it's done.
How to Make Stovetop PopcornFirst, heat up a large pot over high heat. While we prefer using a lightweight stainless-steel pot that makes transferring popcorn easier, any large pot with a cover will suffice.
Once the pot is heated up, lower the temperature a bit and add your preferred oil (we recommend avocado, coconut, or olive oil). Next, add the popcorn kernels, some salt, and shake the pot to coat the kernels evenly.
In about 10 seconds, the popcorn will start popping, so it's time to cover the pot with a lid and shake every 10 seconds. In just 1 minute, you can have a pot full of delicious popcorn ready to be poured into a bowl and seasoned to your heart's desire.
What Can You Put on Your Popcorn?You can keep it simple by sprinkling some salt, or try adding nutritional yeast for a plant-based cheesy flavor, or dried rosemary and garlic powder for a savory, herbal twist. You can also be creative and add your choice of spices and seasonings!

Troubleshooting Tips for Stovetop PopcornThe key to perfect stovetop popcorn is to heat the pot enough so that the kernels start popping within 10 seconds, but not too hot that the oil starts to smoke. Finding that perfect temperature is essential, and once you do, stovetop popcorn will become your new favorite snack!
Making popcorn is easiest on a gas stovetop, but it's also feasible on an electric one. On an electric stovetop, you may need to wait a bit for the pan's temperature to decrease after switching from high to medium-high heat before adding the oil.
If the kernels burn but not all of them popped, this can indicate that the pan was not hot enough when the kernels were added. This caused the popcorn to remain in the pot for an extended period while trying to get them all to pop. Next time, try turning up the heat or giving the pan more time to warm up.
