Dacor Microwave/Conv Oven DCM24S

My kids always want popcorn for a snack.  I bought this model convection oven 1 yr ago and cannot get popcorn to pop it either burns it or leaves all kernels.  I have tried the popcorn key and without the key nothing works.  What is causing this?

    Yes! The popcorn bag stays flat and a small burn hole will appear in it. I have tried both a set time and the popcorn button. I also have tried to put if up on the small wire rack to get more circulation. That helps a bit...but still leaves unpoped kernels and skortched paper on the bag.

Placing the bag on an inverted glass bowl or pyrex casserole dish worked!!!!!  For 2 years, I have cursed my Dacor microwave for its inability to make popcorn (burns a hole in the bag, bag stays flat, almost no kernels pop, etc...)  I read the last suggestion to use the glass plate and I am now sitting with a bowl full of perfectly popped popcorn - with only 1 kernel unpopped.  The metal tray in the microwave conducts too many waves through the bag I guess.
Thanks for the solution!

It worked!!!!! Placing the bag on an inverted glass bowl. I was so upset that this expensive microwave can't even pop popcorn. Thanks :)

Elevate the popcorn by setting the bag on an inverted glass plate.

Abita beer rocks!
Use the power level settings to turn power down to about 75-80%. Then pop (regular size) for a bout 3-4 min. Listen to the pops when it slows to 2-3 seconds between pops- remove.

Put any microwave popcorn on a up side down dish so it is about in the middle of the oven. Make sure you follow the "this side up" instruction on the bag.

Many times restaurant supply houses can have what you are looking for in terms of hinges. However, when the hinges, seals, megatron tubes go....generally its time to go shopping for a new unit!

My Dacor DCM24 microwave/convection oven is brand new and won't pop popcorn--old or new, large or small bag, with twice as much time as is on the bag, power on high. Doesn't work with the popcorn button...


Are you cooking it this way, as shown in the owner's manual?

"Use an overturned 9 or 10 inch oven proof glass pie plate on top of the
turntable when popping bagged microwave popcorn.
"

You can also use a paper plate in a pinch, but as always, never leave a microwave unattended while it's cooking, since some paper products can have impurities which will allow overheating and possibly fire.

This is a convection oven, so it has a metal turntable tray.

Microwaves cannot penetrate the metal from below like it would on a standard microwave's glass tray, allowing for even heating.

If you've lost your owner's manual, you can get it here.
