Open the bag with great care as steam will be escaping and you can get scalded. Pour into a bowl, serve and enjoy the taste and the knowledge that this heaping bag of microwave popcorn cost less than $0.10!

Thank you, very much.
this may sound weird but try using a little icing sugar instead of salt. popcorn makes a delicious sweet snack. it also tastes nice with maple syrup but is sticky and a little soggy .
 I have to try this. Microwave popcorn for less than 10 cents! 
Now if only I could have this process done with my Iphone. Make an app I'd buy it. adamcpennington.googlepages.com
You can get better popping "success" by elevating the bag!

I put my bag on top of an inverted cereal bowl for my relatively small mirowave oven. You want to get the bag about 1/4 to 1/3 of the way down from the top.

Practice for your machine.
Each individual microwave has "hot spots" where the microwave energy is concentrated. They vary from microwave to microwave, in all 3 dimensions. (This is why they have the rotating disk in the bottom)
