in case youre all out there looking for a lightweight alternative to a cast iron skillet for cooking your veggies, (and honestly, who isnt, right?) i found this little beauty at the bottom of my last batch of jiffy pop. probably been done before, but its a good excuse to eat jiffy pop!

So what's the magic trick to get all the burnt fake butter and kernels off the bottom? never seen a jiffy pop that finished popping without burnt stuff at the bottom.

Do you steam it inside the container or do you try to fry it up?

And my wife the chef would point out that this is the least evenly heating pan you will ever own, by a long shot...

Plus Jiffy Pop popcorn tastes awful, IMHO! I don't think the pan is worth the price since the popcorn and all that artificial gunk would go in the garbage. YMMV, of course.

Thanks for posting the idea. No matter a person's take on Jiffy Pop, brainstorming is useful. Two of the tricks with Juffy Pop are low heat and keeping the pan moving. We used to think this stuff was really cool when we were kids, but I'm over it. I did do some fiddling with Jiffy Pop and disposable pans for impromtu camping gear in years past. Foil pans (repurposed or diposable) can be made to work with some care, especially for poaching or boiling. Let water disperse the heat. The Jiffy Pop pan has a handle, which is convenient, but a coat hanger might be utilzed or one of the clamp-on handles.

I love sautéed onions and mushrooms....

The last time we had one of those Jiffy Pops I asked my wife to save the pan for me because I wanted to give it a try for backpacking. She tossed it cry

She says I have too much junk and I didn't need a Jiffy Pop pan, but it's not true, I do need one of those. cool

Bill-

It man be "no-man's land," OK, was in past lifetimes, but you are resourceful enough to find the snack aisle in your local grocery store. Or, buy a bakery or frozen pie and repurpose that pan...

Yes, it can be a no man's land frown

Like lots of guys I know, so far my resourcefulness has been limited to saying "Hey, while you're at the store pick me up a ...." (fill in the blank), but you have to give me credit for trying to be "Green". I mean, my wife is going to the store anyway.

From my informal studies on the subject I've preconcluded that wives quickly build an immunity to hearing that phrase no matter what language their husbands speak. I suspect it's a genetic fault that a pill could be made to fix but my wife won't let me take a DNA sample to test it, and none of the husbands I know will even ask theirs for one. mad

So, I guess you're right. If I'm ever going to get a Jiffy Pop frying pan I'm going to have to go to the store myself. grin

Dinner in a baggie? Not so much anymore. Sometimes I eat salad or cereal, but I enjoy a hot breakfast and dinner.

Bill-

If you didn't live so far away, I'd be happy to pick up a Jiffy Pop for you. I buy stuff for my husband and son all of the time. I'm there, so I just do it.
