We got a new microwave recently, and our popcorn making capacities have taken a major hit.
With the old microwave, nuking the popcorn on the default setting (which I'm assuming is high) for 3 minutes and 10 seconds gave us a perfect bag of popcorn. Nothing burned, and very few unpopped kernels, maybe 4 or 5 per bag.
Now with the new microwave, 3:10 is almost on the edge of burning the corn, but about 1/3 of the kernels remain unpopped. Increasing the time only burns the popcorn.
Will nuking it at a lower power setting but for more time make more of them pop? Or not do anything at all?
