We just hooked up a new k410 lenovo computer and it has a thumping sound (sort of like popcorn popping in the distance, or a pop of boiling water). Do you have a clue ?

Never heard of such a thing. Only thing that comes to mind is a cable rubbing against a fan, but that sound differs. Take it back if brand new. No way to start off.

No never did tell how long to boil the corn


You don't boil corn for making popcorn, it must be dry as taken from the bag. If needs a certain amount of moisture to pop, but not boiled.

If you want to boil corn kernels or corn on the cob, 20 minutes in boiling salted water will cook it perfectly. Frozen corn, only about 10 minutes, canned cream corn, just until it simmers.

Noel, I see you adding stuff in the Comment boxes, but you need to say what information you need after the stock phrase. Usually we have some idea of what the OP is on about, and you use that box to request specific information, or just move on to the next post. Thanks for helping out though.

Shut's off after cooking popcorn, only popcorn, won't restart for 15 too30min.


Sounds like the magnetron is over heating. Try putting a 4 0z cup of water in the oven along side the popcorn bag. See if this helps. Usually, the oven only runs 2 to 2.5 minutes for a bag of popcorn. You may have to experiment with the slightly different cooking time...

Try new popcorn, popcorn dries out and does not pop well after being opened.

If the popcorn does not pop, and just turns black then it is too cold. If it pops very rapidly and then burns it is too hot. It is almost never too hot if you shut it off fast enough.

Elite Epm250 Popcorn Maker instructions


Turn on the heater and let heat for 2-3 minutes. The Elite EPM 250 popcorn maker uses a 2.5 oz kettle. This is for 1/3 cup of uncooked kernels. Add kernels with a tablespoon of popcorn oil (available in markets) and a 1/3 teaspoon of what's called "Flavacol". It's a seasoning that they use in movie theaters to add flavor, saltiness and color. It's available online (ebay) or at Smart and Final. Use this combo and you can't go wrong. For cleaning, let kettle cool, the add 1/2 cup water. Turn on kettle and let boil for 2-3 minutes. Then empty it out.

Crackling and popping sounds when you heat up food


thats normal water expanding and boiling off from the microwave boiling those tiny water pockets in food... sounds like popcorn sometimes.
Cover your food with a paper towel to avoid spatter on the ceiling of the microwave when this is happening.

Cuisinart popcorn popper directions


If you are using the Cuisinart pop corn poppper, don't use olive oil. Use vegetable oil. Two teaspoons is enough with 1/3 cup of premium kernels. That is it. Turn on the machine and wait til it stops popping. I LOVE my new pop corn popper. I will not do the hot air one again. I always had kernels flying all over my kitchen and popped popcorn everywhere, The Cuisinart popper is the best....

Popcorn sticks to kettle


Sounds like it needs cleaning with very hot soapy water. The grease has built up on the inside of the kettle and acts like glue.

Popcorn won't pop


Hints for getting the best popped corn: Don't pop popcorn in butter as the butter will burn before it can get hot enough. Popcorn pops best in temperatures of 400-460 degrees F. If your oil starts to smoke which happens at 500 degrees F, you've got it too hot. Any oil will work. Use enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan. For your health, you should choose a light cooking oil or better yet, skip the oil all together and use an air popper. The movie houses use yellow dyed coconut oil which does a great job of popping the popcorn although there are healthier oils you can use than coconut oil. To see if you have the oil hot enough, drop a couple of kernels into the hot oil. If it's hot enough, they should pop in just a few seconds. If you don't have a popper, any thick bottomed, high walled pan will do. Popcorn can even be easily made in a Dutch oven over a camp fire. When your oil is the right temperature, pour in your popcorn, shaking the pan to cover all the seeds in oil. Do this with the lid on to prevent burns should the hot oil try to splash out of the pan. Using a lid helps the kernels to heat more evenly and keeps the popping corn from flying all over the place. (If you are using a popcorn popper, shaking it isn't necessary because of it's rounded bottom.) As it begins popping, it's important to continue to shake a flat-bottomed pan. This helps any un-popped kernels to settle to the bottom of the pan where they can pop. As soon as you hear the popcorn stop popping, pull the pan off the heat and pour the popcorn into another container. It will burn if you leave it in the hot pan.

What can you do if you've done everything right but your popcorn still doesn't pop very well? As mentioned above, popcorn must have about 13.5 to 14% moisture to pop properly. This is because as the popcorn kernel is heated, the moisture inside the seed is turned to steam creating a huge inner pressure. As this pressure continues past the shell's strength to keep it in, the skin ruptures and the inner starchy layer of the kernel greatly expands and turns itself inside out. If the moisture isn't there, this pressure build-up can't happen. If you find your popcorn has excessive old maids (un-popped kernels) in it, the problem might be that it lacks moisture. Place 3 cups of un-popped popcorn into a quart bottle. Add a tablespoon of water, put the lid on and shake it to get water on all the kernels. If the water puddles in the bottom of the bottle, shake it again every 10 minutes until enough of the water has been absorbed to prevent puddling. Now let it sit for two or three days while the moisture is evenly distributed into the kernels. If it still doesn't pop correctly, repeat this process but add no more than 2 teaspoons of water the second time. Yes, it's also possible to get it so moist it won't pop, so definitely, don't add water a third time. Lastly, you can even take your old maids that didn't pop, rejuvenate them with water using the above process and re-pop them. (With a measurement of three cups un-popped popcorn, 1 tablespoon of water will increase the moisture content 2.5%. A teaspoon of water will increase the moisture level almost 1%. Air dried popcorn will probably never get below a 10% moisture content on it's own, so adding even two tablespoons of water would be pushing it, raising the moisture content to 15% - that is if it started out at a moisture level of 10%.)
