Popcorn! Y U No Pop right!!??

Dunno what's going on with my microwave but the last 3 bags of popcorn I've popped have burned..horribly. Blech!


I've tried setting the temp lower and the time lower. Either it won't pop or it starts to burn. I just want kettle corn goodness!!!


Anyway, can I rip open a non popped bag of pop corn and just pop the kernels. I know you can pour oil in a pot, throw in kernels and go for it, but I'm asking because these kernels come from the popcorn bag covered in oil already.

  • I've never tried it, but after 3 failed bags I'd be willing to try just to see what might happen. Maybe a little extra oil will be needed, but I've never torn open a bag to see just how oily they already are.

    Maybe it's the type of popcorn? I know with mine the # of watts it has is ridiculously low and certain types/brands burn worse than others.

    If you do try to open a bag and pop on the stove, let us know how it turns out :)

  • Try to move the pot you use around a little like you would with a jiffy pop thing.
