Turn on the saute button and select more. When the display says HOT, add in the coconut oil and mix.
After a minute, pour in popcorn kernels. Stir until all popcorn kernels are covered in oil. Make sure that the kernels are in a single layer.
Close the lid. Wait for the popcorn to start popping. It may take 1 - 3 minutes.
When the popcorn has slowed down or stopped popping for about 30 seconds, then press the cancel button to turn off the Instant Pot. Let the pot cool off and settle before opening lid. Be careful when removing the lid.
Pour melted butter and salt over popcorn.
I have made this popcorn many, many times and sometimes it would pop more kernels and other times, it would leave a lot of unpopped kernels. People have told me that the butter burns when they try it. So I have removed the step about adding butter to the Instant Pot, although it's still shown in my YouTube video. It's better to leave out the butter, as the butter can burn and interfere with the process of popping corn.
