Gave this a try last night and ended up burning the crap outta the popcorn. I didnt even let it get for 2 minutes and there was still a massive black ball in the middle of the bag. So I threw it out and tossed in a bag of microwave popcorn...

Ive given up entirely on microwave popcorn, I've tried this but never got good results with a bunch of uncooked kernels. I now just cook on the stove in olive oil. Doesn't even need salt and sooooo delicious. Granted you would have a pot to clean, but it seems to make better popcorn if you just wipe it out between batches. Its on my stove all the time and no sense in washing it if its getting heated to a lot of degrees between batches anyway.

All I know is the new Act II Butter Lovers smells like Buttered Barf while it cooks. the aroma of popping corn was the biggest appeal for me now, it's disgusting smelling.

Ohhhh how I miss the diacetyl in my popping corn.

SOB - I've been using a fresh bag of kernels - any idea how long yours have been hanging around? I did a test batch a while ago with some old kernels with less that spectacular results.

Well...they have been sitting around for a while. Prolly about 2+ years! I can cook them in a pot with some oil with no problem...

brown paperbags should never be used to pop popcorn in the microwave. same with scotch tape. You are releasing bad BAD chemicals into your food (think about the paper emulsifiers... popcorn bags use food-grade and food-safe processes) The chemical in microwave popcorn that is bad for you is the preservative "tertiary butylhydroquinone" (TBHQ). Just look for a local-brand of popcorn and chances are, they won't have it in their product. (Dacytol is also a bad chemical, famous for "popcorn lung"--NO ONE in the US uses that anymore)

Again, find a local popcorn company and you will probably find that they don't need to slather preservatives on their product. If you can't find a local guy, I recommend www.PudenzPopcorn.com and guess what? They have Jalapeno popcorn, chemical and preservative free

Microwave popcorn is alright, but I love my Whirley. Tastey, fast popcorn the old fashioned way. BTW, I never wash mine. It just gets wiped out with a paper towel. Easy.

I dunno... A little canola in the bottom of a pot, a cup of popcorn, put a lid on it and in 5 min or less I'm eatin popcorn. Seems just as easy as the microwave...
