Default Pop Corn

A few days ago, someone posted about making pop corn where they added the kernels to a cup, stirred in the oil and then put it in the pot. I don't remember who posted it, nor can I find the post.

My question is, do you add additional oil to the pot or just what was mixed with the kernels in the cup?

Thank you.

I'm sure Hilditch will chime in when he sees this thread, but until then, from a cooking-popcorn perspective, the oil on the kernels should be sufficient.

But if you're popping corn to build seasoning, starting with a thin coating of oil on the inside of the pot doesn't hurt.

I'll bet that I looked at every single thread, except that one! Thanks! Hoping Hilditch chimes in.

No extra oil is required, although being generous on the kernels is OK. I wouldn’t put a coat on first as the whole vessel may not get hot enough to polymerize the oil. Just letting the explosions of the kernels and steam carrying the oil to the surface is sufficient to leave a nice even thin coat. Additional heating/baking will harden a sticky surface if required.

So, would you use this method, for the first seasoning after a clean-up, or should I do a couple of regular oven seasonings first ?
