The topic of this post just brought back bad memories from college. Burnt popcorn caused at least one fire alarm a week where we’d have to evacuate the dorms until the fire department checked the cause of the alarm and declared it safe. Sophomore year during final’s week there were three alarms in one night. And we had to evacuate the building every time.
As for cooking popcorn, I highly recommend purchasing an air popper next time you see one on sale. I got mine on Black Friday at Kohls for $5 after rebate. Buying the popcorn in a buck package is also cheaper and healthier. There’s no chemicals from the microwave bag and you can customize it with as much or as little salt and butter (or other flavorings) that you want.
