"On a boat you can count on entropy being predictable. Hmm, so what does that make it then??

It makes it a lower energy state.

(Entropy is a thermodynamics concept, wherein order tends toward disorder and randomness. It's the tendency of sharp blades to turn dull; hot into cold; 12.8v into 9.6v; and the shiny boat decaying inexorably into incoherent dust.)

Denise, if you primarily use the microwave as a popcorn poppper, then just get a good stovetop popcorn popper.

Popcorn Poppers - Lee Valley Tools

(I'm thinking I might pick up the one that also makes caramel corn.)

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:

My small pressure cooker used without the seal makes perfect popcorn on the stove.

YUM YUM.


The OP reminds me that I need to have a plan to bypass that remote gas solenoid thinghy - it is going to go wrong someday!

Y'all missed what I was meaning... the Microwave that came with my boat was old and for HA HA FUN WE TRIED IT OUT. trying it on popcorn was really funny. I don't know that I need one on the boat but they are cheap and save the boat from oven heat build up. I hardly ever eat popcorn myself. The propane solenoid is good the control is bad or at least intermittent.
