I *know* I read on here about popping popcorn in the microwave using the batter bowl. I've searched and searched and haven't found it. If you posted it originally (or if you remember what I'm talking about!) could you point me in the right direction? Thanks so much!!
Hmmm...That's a new one on me. I'm just not seeing it, but then again I wouldn't have seen cooking a cake in the rice-cooker either! I did do a search and am not finding anything about it on this site.
popcorn in batter bowl
1 tablespoon oil
3 tablespoons popcorn kernals
4 minutes in the microwave...Yes, you keep the lid on.
I just made some last night!! OH MY GOSH!! It really works! It makes just a very small portion. My lid did not warp or was damaged in any way. Make sure to use a hot pad, as the Batter Bowl is very hot!
I can not wait to promote this idea! Thanks to whoever brought this idea to the board!
I have had my batter bowls for over a year and was too scared to put the lids in the microwave. When I went to a party (just before I signed up) this past fall, I asked the consultant (now my director) about microwaving the lids. She said she does it all the time! Since then I use it every time we cook microwave veggies. It sits just loose enough not to explode from the steam!
Batter bowls are the best ever! And I'm definately going to try the popcorn!
Well, I just tried it! My son (5) thought it was the coolest thing ever to see it pop. 4:00 turned out to be a bit too long in our microwave, though, so I ended up burning it and now--pee-yew!! Everybody...including the dog...is pouting that the house stinks. It doesn't pop fast, the way microwave popcorn in a bag pops and then slows down, so I'm going to just guess that 3:30 to 3:45 would have been right for our microwave.
I checked the Care & Use and you're right, microwave popcorn is verboten. I have been known to mention things like this in a "You didn't hear it from me" kind of way, depending on the crowd.
To be honest, I haven't tried it, and I don't know enough about why popcorn works to know if you could do that. (Shoulda paid closer attention in jr. high science! LOL) I guess a batter bowl is only $13, no harm in trying it without the oil. Let us know if it works!
