    Actually, I don't bother. But if I was to, I think very briefly in the MW might do it, or in a hot uncovered pan on stovetop, tossed frequently to crisp and not burn. It's not so easy to do and get the crunchy good result from just popped corn. I don't mind room temp, slighty soggy popcorn. I don't usually have leftover popcorn, either.

    Butter, salt and ancho chile powder for my current fav seasoning. Put the chile powder in the melted butter.

      MW will make it tough.......Hot oven on a cookie sheet works .....Ok

      Or wait till breakfast....it makes a nice cereal with milk etc.

        Yes, that MW thing, VERY briefly. Or oven.
        Hot oven cookie sheet, good idea.
        For breakfast, even better. No reheating necessary.

        I'm curious.... why do you want to reheat it? Are you using some sort of fancy expensive popcorn?

        A bowl full of popcorn costs me about 20 cents. I don't mean to be rude, I just can't fathom why someone would bother to reheat it.
