Eating popcorn has just been made perfect with the partnership of Sharp Home Electronics Company of America (SHCA) and Orville Redenbacher’s® Gourmet® Popping Corn. This is via the launch of three all-new Countertop Microwave Ovens (SMC1443CM, SMC1442CS and SMC1132CS) with Orville Redenbacher’s certified popcorn preset button. A simple touch on the specially-tuned “Popcorn” button plus either the Orville Redenbacher’s Microwave Popcorn Classic Size (3.3 oz.) or Single Serve Mini Bag (1.16 oz.), produces a perfectly popped, buttery flavor within minutes.

Exclusive, tuned popcorn preset option delivers convenient cooking to complete the perfect pop
