Popcorn is the ultimate Netflix-watching snack, but I tend to overestimate the amount I’ll be able to consume in one sitting, resulting in at least half a bowl of sad, stale remnants. Tossing the fluffy kernels brings me great sadness, but The Kitchn has an elegant solution: you just need to turn on your oven.

According to the link below, all you have to do to breath fresh, crispy life into popcorn is spread it out on a baking sheet and pop it in a 250-degree oven for a few minutes until it’s warmed through. Pour it in a bowl, re-season if needed, and continue return to your regularly-scheduled binge watching. (I look forward to seeing if this works with store-bought cheddar popcorn; my boyfriend has the unforgivable habit of leaving the packaging wide open, wasting half-bags of cheesy goodness.)
