    Please "DO NOT" use paper bags in microwave. Kernels get extremely hot and "Can Cause A Fire!!" I use to sell microwaves and more than one person did not listen to me. That had to buy a new microwave.

DIY- How to Make Your Own Microwave Popcorn in a bag~

  • Hilery Brown

    Check the bottom of paper bag first make sure it is NOT made of recycled materials. If it is it will catch on fire in your microwave- this is the voice of experience!!

    Or skip the microwave altogether and just use an air popper. :)

  • Little Yellow

    I do this but I wet my hands then rub my wet hands on the outside of the bag and then pop it so it doesn't catch fire. Never leave the microwave unattended.

Glass bowl + ceramic plate + popcorn kernels = perfectly popped popcorn in microwave. No bag. No butter or oil. Nothing to throw away afterward. And no un-popped kernels. Put 1/4 cup dry popcorn kernels in microwave-safe glass bowl (pyrex is a great choice). Place microwave-safe plate on top of bowl. Plate should be wide enough to go beyond rim of bowl. Microwave 2 min 45 sec. gm

Microwave Popcorn Trick ~ Learned this from Alton Brown Add 1/3 cup popcorn kernels to a brown paper bag, fold the bag over twice then heat in a microwave — folded side down — for 2 minutes. Even a bigger wow factor for students if you use 2 staples to keep the bag closed. It's metal in the microwave, but because of the size of the staples and the distance between (keep the staples several inches apart), no sparking or arcing occurs
