Yes, lots of folks simply put kernels into a little paper bag and nuke it, but I can truly say that the PowerPop is a better way to go. It has a 'concentrator' inside the bowl which focuses microwave energy. This isn't a gimmick. The popcorn always turns out great -- light and fluffy with no scorching and very few unpopped kernels. It's better and easier than air-popped. I picked one up for $15 at Walmart.
I love popcorn, but I have never liked the microwave variety. I but Orville Redenbachers and cut open the bag and pop it on the stove the old fashioned way. It is *always* perfect.

I can't stand the smell or taste of microwave popcorn. It has a foul, butyric acid stench to it that puts me off.

The real stuff popped in oil for me please, with real butter.

Not at all, it also hurts my teeth, but that could be because of the loads of sweet stuff I eat and drink ^^

I'm in this camp. Plus, you can get a 2 lb bag of popcorn seeds at the store for 2 bucks or less.

Yes! Stove popped popcorn is the best, I think. No fancy equipment required.
