Why do microwaves have a popcorn button if you can't use it?
It is a well known fact that the popcorn button burns popcorn, so why do they even have a button for it?
Sales! The more whistles & bells, the more likely someone will buy it.
I think ttag's spot on - if you're looking at two microwaves, and one has all of these options like 'popcorn, 'vegetables,' etc., and one doesn't, I think most will go with the one featuring the additional options (even if they're completely useless).
Personally, however, I think nothing beats making popcorn over the stove with a little coconut oil, and staying away from that microwave altogether - perhaps I'm a nut, but microwave's just give me the creeps

What one decadent, fattening, unhealthy food will you never give up, and why?I could never give up fresh chocolate chip cookies made with real butter. No low calorie version for me - what about you?

Why can't I share a hub on HubPages?I see people sharing others hubs on HubPages, but when I try to it doesn't do anything. I try to click the button, and it doesn't do anything. If I hit the cancel button, of course it cancels. Any ideas what I could be doing wrong?
