Recipe by Eurista

I have a glass-topped magnetic-induction cooktop, so I needed a method for making popcorn that does not involve shaking the pot. I have cobbled together ideas that I have come across to spare my cooktop. Ingredients listed are from Orville Redenbacher's Original Gourmet Popping Corn as this is just to show a method.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 13 cup corn
  • 2 tablespoons oil


  1. Place corn and oil in a 3 quart saucepan. I use paper towel, wide enough to cover the pan and a splatter screen over the paper towel to cover my pot. This lets the steam escape and controls splattering from the oil.
  2. Heat oil and one or two kernels.
  3. When kernels pop, add remaining corn, remove from heat and count to thirty. I count one one thousand, two one thousand, etc.
  4. Place pan back on hob.
  5. When popping slows to almost nothing, it's ready.
  6. Pax.
