Preheat the Popcorn Machine

Before adding any ingredients, preheat Corn Rush's 8oz popcorn machine. Turn on the POT HEATER Button, and allow it to warm up for 2-3 minutes, ensuring that the popping process is smooth and efficient.

Add Oil and Kernels

Add 3 tablespoon of butter flavored oil blend, followed by 1 cup of kernels into the pot. Turn on the STIRRER button. 

Watch the Popcorn Pop

Now comes the fun part - watching the popcorn pop to golden perfection! As the kernels start to pop, keep the machine's lid slightly open to release steam and maintain the popcorn's crispiness.
