The smoke has permeated the works, so a more aggressive cleaning will be needed.

There are many good suggestions for cleaning and deodorizing microwaves here.

How to pop popcorn


place a teaspoon of cooking oil in the pot and place on stove. Put a small amount of corn to be popped in the pot and the heat will do the rest. 1/4 cup of corn will probably overflow the pot so use small amounts first until you get the idea.

It may be the oil in the popcorn---do you own one of the covers that go inside to cover so food does not splatter?

What should my powerlevel be on on my microwave because it keeps burning my popcorn


Your power level should be on high, but you shouldn't rely on the oven to time the cooking. I have yet to find an oven that won't burn popcorn if it has a preset POPCORN button. Press it and walk away and next thing you know, you've got charcoal. You should always stick around while making popcorn. Stop the oven and take the bag out when the time between pops drops to 1 or 2 seconds. The corn will continue to pop on its own for a bit because of stored heat, but you won't burn it. You'll never get 100% of the corn to pop, so don't worry about unpopped kernels.

What is the best microwave popcorn for my dacor microwave we just got it and i thought i would try some microwave popcorn it did not work very well the turntable just keep turning but the popcorn did not...


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.

I am a microwave pop corn wizzard.

You can download owner's manuals and installation instructions for several brands (including Amana, Frigidaire, Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, Litton, Maytag, Roper, Tappan, Thermador and Whirlpool) here.

If E-13 is not covered in that manual,
please contact me directly with your full model number from the tag on / in the unit so we can help you with free do-it-yourself tips and/or an estimate.

Turn table shattered while making pop corn. Cuisinart ModelCmw100


You can order a replacement dish here. The dish shattered because the heat from the bag of popcorn was too much for it. If you look at the owner's manual for almost every microwave, they tell you not to put popcorn directly on the glass dish, but to put it on another plate.

The oven should be safe to use. Just look for any burned spots on the paint in the bottom of the cooking cavity.

Magic Chef Microwave looses power when making popcorn


That does indeed sound like the mag is overheating and the thermostat is tripping, but it's probably not the steam.

Do you feel a good amount of air flowing through the vents?

If the cooling fan is not running or the air vents are blocked, that wil allow the magnetron to overheat.

If air flow is not a problem, then you may have a defective magnetron.

Assuming it's still under warranty, it would be best to let a Magic Chef-authorized servicer handle it.
