Why Stovetop Popcorn?

Stovetop popcorn is generally considered to be better than microwave popcorn for a few reasons.

One reason is that stovetop popcorn has a better flavor. When popcorn is popped on the stove, the heat is distributed more evenly, which helps to bring out the natural flavor of the kernels. In contrast, microwave popcorn can sometimes taste "stale" or "cardboardy," because the kernels are not heated as evenly. Additionally, stovetop popcorn allows you to add your own oil and seasoning which give more varied and better taste than pre-seasoned microwave popcorn.

Another reason is that stovetop popcorn is healthier. Many brands of microwave popcorn are loaded with artificial ingredients and chemicals that are not good for you. When you make popcorn on the stove, you have more control over what goes into it. You can use a healthy oil, like avocado or coconut oil, and add your own seasonings. Additionally, stovetop popcorn allows you to use non-GMO, organic popcorn, which might not be available for the microwave version.

Lastly, stovetop popcorn is more eco-friendly. The bags of microwave popcorn are not recyclable and not biodegradable, and the synthetic buttery flavoring also harms the environment. Stovetop popcorn can be made with a pot, oil and kernels, and you can use paper or glass container for storage which are recyclable.

Overall, stovetop popcorn is a more natural, healthy and eco-friendly alternative to microwave popcorn. It also gives you the ability to customize your popcorn with your own flavors, which is an advantage. While microwave popcorn may be more convenient, stovetop popcorn is the better choice in terms of taste, health, and sustainability.
