Recently I found that popcorn is a fantastic snack, and incredibly cheap if you make it yourself. There is only one problem... it seems that some of the popcorn pieces have a jaw shattering hard pieces hidden within them.

Is there a way to easily separate these or even preventing them whilst cooking them?


Shake the bowl containing the popcorn, the un-popped kernels should tumble to the bottom of the bowl.

Warning,there might be slightly popped kernels that should be eaten at all cost (the best part IMO).

  • Thank you for answering. It is the ones that are mostly popped causing the issue. The unpopped ones lay at the bottom. – Terry May 28 '15 at 13:01
  • I think you just have to be careful (partially popped kernels are really good). – Max May 28 '15 at 17:08
