Most people love popcorn. It's quick to make, has very little calories and tastes great. I am going to show you how to make perfect popcorn on the stove every time in about 15 minutes. No burnt popcorn and very little un-popped kernels.

Step 1: Prepare

Get everything together. You will need:

a suitable pan or pot.
1 tablespoon of cooking oil
uncooked popcorn
Other spices

Heat the oil in the pan on a medium heat. My stove is marked from 1 to 6 and I use 4. Put 3 to 4 kernals (pips / seeds) in the pan before it heats up.
I noticed in one of the pics it looks likes there's a pat of butter in with the unpopped corn, but you don't mention butter. Also, do you not shake the pan like we always used to do or just let it sit there on the burner? Sure like the idea of not shaking the pan all that time.
Hi amnartist, I did put a pat of butter in but it is not needed. When you put the unpopped corn in, you shake the pan to spread them out evenly and to make sure there is only one layer. After that I do not shake the pan again. I hope this helps.
Love popcorn. It is a lovely snack. Will try to make it the way you suggesting it. 5 stars :-)
Vika84, you should do it. I do at least 3 times a week. I pop out during ad breaks on TV and come back with a bowl of popcorn. Quick, easy, always perfect!
sounds gread! I will try it soon. Hope it'll come out as perfect as yours. yam yam :-) <br>
