Mine came out perfectly. It is key to heat the oil first then keep the pan moving until the popcorn stops. Otherwise you end up with burned sugar on the bottom of the pan.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup vegetable oil
  • 12 cup popcorn
  • 14 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt


  1. In a large pot with a tight-fitting lid, heat the oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the popcorn.
  3. When the oil sizzles, sprinkle the sugar over the kernels.
  4. Cover and shake the pan until the popping slows down, about 3 minutes.
  5. Remove from the heat and toss with the salt.
