Measure popcorn with white cup. Pour into popper. Replace cup on top of popper. Have bowl ready to catch popped corn.
Now, some things I learned.
Yes Char There is a Learning Curve
I made mistakes my first time. I can laugh about them now.
The popcorn will try to jump out. It is too hot to pick them up and toss them back in. (Bird seed...)
Don't tip it over. It's top heavy, and lightweight. It makes a big mess. Kernels of popped and un-popped kernels all over. Meaning, under the stove, under the toaster oven...
Yes. I did end up with a bowl of popcorn. I melted some butter in the microwave and drizzled it around. I folded the popcorn. Then, I salted it lightly.
Apparently it was tasty.
