Alright, for all you popcorn connoisseurs out there; I have a simple question. In order to get your popcorn to prime condition for nomming, how long do you cook it in your microwave/oven/cauldron/etc.?

 

Vote in the poll and post below!

 

I personally use 1:41 minutes most of the time. 1:40 generally cooks popcorn well without leaving a lot of kernels or burning it, but I tend to cook popcorn at night and I don't want to wake everyone else up with the beeping of the microwave, so I add another second so I can stop the microwave early without losing time.

Sometimes popcorn tastes slightly better a little burned it gives it that extra zing! hahaha.

UGH POPCORN. Disgusting little spawns of Satan.   0 seconds ;p I personally find popcorn to be really disgusting.

well, my microwave takes 2:30 to actually get to the 1:31-1:50 category. Anyways I like mine light, burnt kernels always annoy me as they take away from the flavor (for me, butter or cheese, sometimes others).

Damn, now I could go for a bowl of popcorn at 3:30am.

Alright so I have this down to an art! I have to always get the same type of microwave popcorn, its Gala Extra Butter because I have realized that my microwave needs 2.13 to normally be perfect with maximum amount of popped/least burnt! I spent way more time than I should have trying to figure out the best microwave time! :D

Mine tends to be anywhere from 1:31 to 2:05, I'm really picky and hate both uncooked and burnt popcorn.  :twi:

Mine tends to be from 1:15 to 2:10, but it's mostly around 1:15. Since I'm super picky about my popcorn I try to plan out a time for the best popcorn. :P

I like to have most of it popped, but still with some kernels and a couple of half-popped ones in there cause those have a nice crunch :P

I try to stay with whatever's on the bag, which is usually the 1:30 - 1:40 range.

 

Who cares if there are a few survivors of the Great Kernel Apocalypse! I'll still munch on a few of 'em!

Until the popping has died down to less than one pop every five seconds.

 

How long that takes depends on which saucepan I've used.

The most finicky thing I have ever cooked. Just a few couple of seconds too little, and you have little yellow-orange balls in the bag.  >_>

 

Just a few seconds too many, and you have fluffy outside, but black and burnt as everything on the inside. :angry:

 

Right about 1:30 seems to work for me. :squee:

What a coincidence, I just had popcorn yesterday.

 

Anyways, I usually cook it for about 2 minutes or something around 1:45.

It's really not that hard to cook popcorn if you have those pre-packaged popcorn bags like Orville Redenbacher (great popcorn btw).  My microwave is a little shit tier so doing 2:20 works for me.  If it takes 1 full second between pops like the bag says, it pops a large majority of the popcorn without burning it.

 

If I remember correctly, before I switched microwaves, it was only like a 1:30ish before the popping slowed down. Basically it all depends on what microwave you have and the megahertz it puts out.  My current one is 2450 MHz.

My current one is 2450 MHz.

 

All modern domestic microwave ovens operate at 2450 MHz.

 

Cooking speed depends on the oven's power, not its frequency. Power is measured in Watts. A typical microwave oven might be between 600 W and 900 W.

Ah ok, I looked again and it says 700W.

I myself put it in the microwave, then I apply my ears as a timer it might sound strange but hear me out then i listen for the pops to get down where they are 3 or 4 a second or so then take out and enjoy. :yay: post-31415-0-52359500-1421032287_thumb.gifpost-31415-0-73873500-1421032372.jpg
