shake it a lot, take it off the heat before it stops popping, just when the popping slows. leave it to stop, then serve into bowl immediately.

Do you need a bit more oil in the pan?

Make sure oil is at least fairly hot before you start?

just figured out my malfunction- using olive oil. time for a bowl of buttered and an episode of twin peaks.

Use vegetable oil. Of course, you can use butter too but most packs rec veg oil.

how do you microwave it?

I use olive oil
you need to keep shaking and moving the pan once it starts to pop

you can only microwave popcorn if it comes in 'microwavable packs'

That's what I thought.

I microwave regular popcorn in a pyrex casserole dish. Works fine. Tells you how long to do it for on the packet.

60g popping corn into lided dish cook for 2.5-3 mins
remove from m/wave and spinkle with either salt or sugar.

Ohhh thank you pinky, I love popcorn and don't get it right on the hob hence the curiosity. Will try it tomorrow.
