IMHO, air poppers make wonderful packing material and dry, cardboard textured popcorn...might as well get a bag of microwave corn. some nice olive oil imparts a great, subtle flavor without masking the corn and just enough oil for the salt to stick to.

if you are not a purist, you can also flavor the oil with garlic powder for a great a roasted garlic popcorn or some nice cayenne powder for a light little kick. real garlic and real pepers don't seem to work as well...funny that?!

I don't like moist popcorn, and popping it in oil of any sort adds moisture to the kernels. Thus why I prefer air popped. ;)

<quoted text>those induction cooktops are super cool! my neice has Sleestak's disease (gluten free...I know it's Celiac's. but i grew up with 'Land of the Lost' so...)
so at our family cabin i set up a seperate cooking area in the downstairs bar with two of those portable induction plates. those things work better than our kitchen cooktop!
I agree, very efficient. There are drawbacks. Most of my cookware won't work with them. The one I have automatically turns itself off if an appropriate pot or pan is not on it so no worries damage wise.

This is the one that I bought, but as I said I got mine from Casa.com which was running a 30% off first time customer offer:

http://www.amazon.com/Burton-6200-1800-Watt-I...

So mine with tax was roughly $65.00 Pretty sweet, and that was with shipping and handling. No "free" stuff. But as all adults should now, nothing is really free. The scammers that were on late night TV sold the brand "Nu-Wave". They claim a higher cooking temperature on the high end, much higher than you would ever want to cook at, and yet they are only 1300 watts compared to mine which has 1800 watts. Of course mine has a built in temperature limiter. Perhaps that is why they can claim such high temps, it will get there, it will just take longer.

<quoted text>you shouldn't need to shake your popcorn pan. heat the oil with three kernels in it, when they pop, the oil is ready and pour your corn in. no need to shake or stir it.
So now the subject is popcorn? I overdosed on that when I used to work in a pub during my college years a long long time ago. I haven't been a big fan since. We still used coconut oil at the time. It would be semi-solid with a little liquid at room temperature. It would be interesting to see how it tastes today, it has been so long.

yeah, we use All-Clad cook ware on them. i like my non-stick pans for many everyday uses like scrambled eggs and such, and they don't work on them...

Can't recall what brand we have and we got them at some snooty cooking place in a tourist town near our cabin. think we paid over 2 bills for the both of them...so you seem to have gotten a good deal.(but seriously, we have two induction 'burners' on the Viking stove top in the kitchen and these portable ones seem to work even better.)

yeah, i could see how you'd get sick of it...

yes, the newer popcorn varieties are far better.

it's just a good healthy(er) snack we can enjoy (and the puppies can eat it also!)

Sorry, but when it comes to popcorn, I'm a heathen.

I don't care how much salt and butter you put on it, it's still styrofoam.

The world was created out of corn, corn is in everything, and there is no escape from the corn.
But honestly the Mayans beat you to it, long ago there were A Maize zing things they did in the name of corn. lol

What sort of cookware do you use with that? Glass? It says compatible cookware detector?

Good idea. Let's have a jokefest.

Why did the Creationist cross the road?
He didn't. His mommy wasn't there to hold his hand.

How many Creationists does it take to change a lightbulb?
None. Creationists use candles.

Why are Creationists afraid to travel?

I have a question that may not be exactly on topic, but it does raise a concern. Ever since I entered this topic on Topix a month ago, the ads that appear in my browser are mostly Christian related. My concern is not so much the privacy issue (although it should be, I mean really – wtf?) it is the fact that on every page I browse, there’s a big ad asking "Do you believe in God? Click here for 6 reasons to believe". Now here’s my gripe. What does whoever the owner of this ad have to gain if I believe in God? Why has this person or group, who certainly have incurred reasonable costs to be my personal number 1 ad, gone out of their way to prove to me that God exists? What do they expect to gain from this? Financial gain, or just to strengthen their following? I am truly bemused by their need to prove to me that God exists on every website that I visit. This is what I find the most repellent about some true believers. They are not happy in just their own faith, they feel the need to go out of their way to convince me that I too MUST believe. Why do they take it upon themselves to "sell" this belief to others? I am already comfortable with my own religious beliefs thank you, no need to sell me on an opinion or belief that I might not share.
LOL
