Making the difference which is better:

Above four methods, every method is very easy and economical. But we can identify that campfire popcorn making is better than all others. Because, it is cheaper, easier and less time taker. To apply this method, you no need any metal pot or instrument. Moreover, it can be arranged at any place. The microwave is also an easy method to cook popcorn but it is the concern of rich people.

Most people like easy and less trouble in their life. If it relates to making popcorn, there is no word to say. Though popcorn making is not a big fact anyway, sometimes it makes us discomfort if we have no microwave.
