"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.)

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.
