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.

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