Microwave Listens To Your Popcorn Popping, For Perfect Timing

Eureka for everyone who thought microwave popcorn was too damn difficult.

You’re eating your popcorn in front of your home television and bite into an unpopped kernel. _The deception! _You put all of your faith in this popcorn, only to have it end like this. You may never love again. The solution: open your heart to another, more careful microwave.

The recently launced Whirlpool Microwave Hood Combo with TimeSavor (ha ha, as a savvy consumer, I get it) can listen to the sound of your food cooking, meaning it knows the rate that the kernels are popping, and can adjust the cooking time appropriately. (This probably has applications for other foods, but mostly popcorn.) The world as we knew it has irrevocably changed.
