    They say that because they don’t know what microwave you have and if your microwave’s popcorn button sucks fat dick. They are covering their asses.

      Big popcorn also doesn't want you to know that you can just put a cup of kernels in a paper bag with a tablespoon of oil and salt and microwave it and it's literally the same as microwave popcorn in the packets.

    Why do you even need a popcorn button? Just put it in for 2 minutes, every time.

      Sometimes when I want a minute and fifteen seconds I type in 75 because it feels cool

        I just push the quick start button a bunch of times and then open the door randomly anywhere between 30-1
        If it needs more, just hit quickstart again

    Why bother with microwave popcorn at all? It is trivially easy to make popcorn in a normal pot with at least as high a success rate and given you'll be making it from plain kernels instead of eating shitty fake butter coated cancerfood healthier too. Plus you can pick flavourings and serving amounts more carefully instead of a single bag being decided for you. It's literally as simple as:
    >add 1 to 1.5 teaspoons of neutral oil to pan & set heat to medium-high (7/9 for an average 0-9 induction hob and this can only be easier on gas)
    >add one layer of kernels & put on lid
    >when popping starts reduce heat slightly (6/9 on a nine scale), pick pot up occasionally and shake (holding lid)
    >once popping stops/more than two seconds between pops turn off heat, shake a bit, rest 30 seconds
    >remove lid, add salt and other flavourings as desired

    Done. If you're autistic about it you can add only 2-3 kernels at first to check for oil temp and once they pop remove them and add the full batch or frick around with a thermometer but I've never found it necessary. I mean if you sit down and think about it this is basically how both jiffy pop, the whirly pop worthless gadget and the old fashioned popcorn makers work.

        I'd understand if it wasn't easier to make than packet ramen.

            Obviously it's about what's in the bag other than just popcorn and a tiny bit of oil. You're getting garbage tier flavourings and fats plus whatever stabilisers and shit they've thrown in which compared to plain old kernels is less healthy. True you can pay for high end microwave popcorn that's much simpler but then you're paying even more of a premium for being a lazy moron.

    mine works fine too, which I am not sure why. Is it a sensor that listens for popping to slow down? I never leave it uinattended.

    Set it to three minutes and just stop it when you don't hear a pop every second.

    A confession for this thread.

    I'm thirty and just learned a couple of weeks ago that you can actually make popcorn in a pot. I always thought it was either you buy microwave popcorn and microwave it or you had to have a specific machine. To be fair I never really ate popcorn in my adult life and when I was a kid my mom always just bought microwave popcorn. Now that I can make it in a pot from kernels I have been making popcorn for movie nights and it's so good with melted butter. Live and learn.

      Yeah, and it's really clever engineering, too. The microwave has a built-in microphone (!) that listens for popping sounds (!) and stops when they become infrequent. It basically just does what you would do if you did it manually except it's all automatic.
