Putting a bag of popcorn in the microwave is easy, but knowing not to set it too long might not be. This new model from Whirlpool is smart. It listens to the popcorn as it pops to make sure your snack never gets scorched.

The microwave's AccuPop Cycle automatically adapts the cooking time for a bag of popcorn by listening to how frequently the kernels are popping using a sound sensor.
