Making popcorn is a delicious but delicate dance. If you stop the microwave too early, you get a bag full of broken teeth. Too late, and your house smells like a tire fire for the next month. Thankfully, the Whirlpool Microwave with TimeSavor can actually listen to your popcorn, and adjusts the power depending on how fast those little kernels pop. No more guesswork, no more bags of blackened popcorn. The microwave retails at $569, so perfect popcorn won’t be cheap – but think of all the money you’ll save in unpopped kernels!
