Most of us have a microwave oven in our homes for two reasons. The first, to defrost frozen stuff so we can cook it in a regular oven. The second, to make popcorn. Popping corn in the microwave isn't an exact science. What works for my microwave may not work for yours.

You would think as long as we have been popping kernels of corn over a heated flame that the science of it all would have improved. Well now it has, sort of. There is one small problem with the Oncle Sam popcorn popper. It has some real  issues with quantity. In fact it only pops one kernel at a time.
