Smile We had the same problem

Our 96 has a convection/microwave, first run through with the popcorn was a bummer. Then I flipped a corelle plate upside down over the metal grate and put the popcorn bag on top--that time the popcorn button worked fine. It was a large bag with more butter than I should consume !

Hi Michelle--Orville Redenbachers popcorn is the only one we use in our microwaveless A/S. We place a big pot on the stove burner, lightly cover the inside bottom 1/2 olive, and 1/2 safflower oil (all olive oil will vaporize before corn is popped--but olive oil is the flavor). Drop in 3 kernels, cover and turn up burner about half way. When kernels start to pop cover bottom of pot with corn. Put on lid again. When popping starts, shake pot a little. when popping slows to an almost stop, remove popcorn into a big bowl. If you want to pop more, re oil, and cover bottom with corn, and continue with instructions above. It is also a lot less expensive than microwave popcorn. Sounds so good I think I'll pop some now.--Frank S

You might want to look atthis article which suggests that popcorn is not the only thing you get when you microwave a bag of it.

I tried the popcorn again. Same make and model. This time with the grate. It worked bueatifully. Did not think that would be much of a problem. Guess I was wrong.

I knew it! That is why I still pop my popcorn in a 1950's Aladdin "No-Shake" popcorn popper that I got from my mom and dad.
I think microwave popcorn tastes funny.

Believe it or not, some of our chain grocery stores here in the Metro-Detroit area still carry Juffy Pop.
Imagine my 6 year old's surprise when I tried to explain it to her!
