Popcorn Poppers....Not popping all kernals.

So, we bought a popcorn popper as we watch a fair amount of movies, and figured it would save money....instead of buying the microwave stuff all the time.

However....the popper doesn't pop everything. When a kernal explodes, it ends up pushing up an unpopped one up and out with it.

Does anyone else experience this? Could it possibly be that the popcorn brand we are using is too light, and that another kind might stay down more?

Same thing happens to me when I make popcorn. I think it's just because my mom bought a cheapo popcorn popper. I just deal with it, because my mom threw out the microwave.. I doubt it's the brand of the popcorn, but probably just the popcorn popper itself.

I think it must be your popper. My parents have one that they've used for years, and when I've used it in the past it never did that. I would never get but maybe one or two unpopped kernels per big bowl, if that even. I wish I knew what brand it was. It has a metal melter on top for butter as well, not a plastic one.

I have an Air Popper, which I love very much! I love Air Popped Popcorn over the microwave stuff. Ours does that too, it's not a biggie to me, I never really was concerned about it or really took that much of a notice to it. I just dump the few kernals out.

Not many are left behind, just a couple.

Even the microwave stuff has a few unpoped ones in the bag. I think it just happens

I love the air popper. What I normally do when they pop out is quickly grab them from the bowl really quick and throw em back in haha.

I am not meaning like a few kernals....this is like a couple tablespoons full at the end in a big batch. 5 kernals pops, 1 doesn't. I should measure it....

If it was a few kernals, I wouldn't really care, but it seems like a lot. (It was a $20 CDN popper btw....cause we weren't paying $50+ for one!)

That's the same thing that happens to me. I think it might be the popcorn popper. Maybe try a different brand of the popcorn, but if that doesn't work..it's definitely the popper.

So we got a different brand of kernals to pop, and it worked much better. We still loss some (what I would call a normal amount) compared to the other corn we had used.
