To be honest, I can't tell the difference between either one. My fiance likes the fancy, expensive popper made popcorn. We don't have a popper tho. I might invest in a good one for christmas??

My parents are old (fashioned haha) so they do it on the stove.

I like microwaved popcorn, though.

You don't need any special poppers or doohickeys, just a metal pot with a lid. Pour about 3 TBSP oil into the pot (I personally use slightly less then 2 and use Olive Oil as I like the taste and for health reasons) and 1/3 cup kernels into the pot. Put the lid on and shake or rock the pot over a medium heat until the popping slows.

Gas stoves are the best, you literally rock the pot up and down on the burner the entire time. I have a crappy electric, so I gently shake the pot for a few secs, then rock for a few secs, than repeat.

It's a really cheap way to see if you'll enjoy air popped as all you need to buy is the popcorn kernels.

Thanks for that Delfina!! I bake my own bread, make my own pasta, cook almost exclusively from scratch.... but I have never EVER made popcorn that wasn't in the microwave! I'm gonna have to try this...
