My popcorn popper is a sauce pan, I use evoo, and leave the top ajar so that the popped kernels don't steam. The steam make them tough and hard. Heat the oil with 3 kernels in the oil. When the three kernels pop, add the rest of the corn, and let her rip. Salt, and butter ( melted and cooled ) when the popping is done! My favorite way to piss off my dentist!
Backyard Disasters are my specialty.
