Stovetop

Roasting with a stovetop popcorn popper is great! It’s inexpensive, easy to do, allows a lot of control over the roast and allows for big batch sizes. On the other hand, it's not for everyone. This method will create a lot of smoke, especially if you roast multiple dark-roasted batches. The chaff that comes off each bean stays with the batch as it's roasting. Chaff is almost flavorless but some people don't like the way it looks. If you are OK with smoke and chaff, then a stovetop popper should fit you well.

You should preheat your popper to a set temperature for consistency roasts. A thermometer is a helpful accessory for stovetop roasting. They are easy to install; just punch a hole in the popper's lid and insert the thermometer. More tools are in the resources area of the menu bar and in our Library.
