Wanna Netflix and chill? Got no time to prepare for snacks? Worry no more!
What can be better than popcorn? A healthy, delicious, scrumptious snack that everyone loves.
Let's get started!
Do you end up burning it instead of having finely cooked popcorns?
I've seen people trying to make Popcorn using their Instant Pot but end up failing.
That is because of their selection of oil.
I'm a major fanatic of utilizing butter for most things, however for this situation you need to use coconut oil.
Coconut oil has a higher smoke point which guarantees the popcorn pops uniformly and doesn't burn.

Why should I use Instant Pot instead of a stove or microwave?
Preparing popcorns in an Instant pot is as easy as tossing a pack of popcorn into the microwave.
To my surprise, it is always tastier!
What can I use as toppings?
For this Instant Pot popcorn recipe, simply salt will do the thing for you but do not bound yourself to it and feel free to have experience with flavors of cheese, chili, or butter.
