It dawned me a few minutes ago that the only thing I use a microwave for is popcorn... which brings me to my question

Does anybody else think that the popcorn button on the micro is the best invention ever?

Is this thread a test of the light bulb scenario? :confused:;)

I prefer it popped in the pot or air popped (in the pot would be my first choice though...)

Popcorn is certainly not a concern for life expectancy since I had my mid life crisis at 26, thats how I can explain Girlmate.

It cuts the life expectancy of the swimmers though. Why do you think my wife and I are 50 and have no kids?

We cook everything in our microwave. We bake, roast and you name any type of cooking we can do it in our microwave. We do not have a oven because all our cooking is done in the microwave.

Geez, you must have one of those fancy, high-tech microwaves . . . I don't have a popcorn button on my microwave . . . then again I can only read about half of each number since the LED read-out has gone a little funky in the last year or so. ;):D

Yup . . . but WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT LIGHTBULBS, THE TOPIC IS POPCORN.

There I covered two of the categories of the lightbulb scenario . . . . ;):D

Next time I'll try to post some pics of my microwave cooking up a bag of popcorn. . . . and then others can post similar pics. ;):D

Everything's out to kill us these days if you listen to the fear-mongers . . . my philosophy is to eat, drink and be merry for death comes for us all sooner or later and while I would rather it be later than sooner when I die I don't want to look back and think, "You know, I really wish I had that ice cream sundae instead of those celery sticks for dinner last night." ;):D

Hmmm . . . you might be right Dave . . . I'll look it over tonight to see where the microwave popcorn goes in . . . I did notice there is a large bay in the front where a bag would fit in nicely! ;):D

I think surrogates are for BUNS in the oven, not brownies:p

Nope, I'm sorry FFJ, I have to disagree, here. I believe the topic is Microwaves not Popcorn. :p

Nope, I am not pulling your leg. They come out of a microwave. Maybe I should have said it is a microwave/convection oven.

Yes a convection oven is THE way to bake tasty snacks like brownies.

I do this in my office with the new mini-microwave my secretaries gave me for Christmas. It's made by HP and gets all its power and programming by plugging a USB cable into your computer. Little slow on popcorn, takes about 23 minutes per bag, but very convenient. I can talk to clients while popping corn! Make them feel at home. There's a program you can download from the Food Network, "micromate" that will automatically set the time and power levels. You can cook a whole chicken in this thing in a little under 2 hours, just set it and forget it!!!!!:D:D:D

You do mean 2 -3 minutes per bag right and not 23 minutes? :eek:

At 23 minutes you might as well hold a bic lighter under each kernal and eat each one as it pops.
