A few years ago, I was living with roommates in the Haight when one of them re-introduced me to the popcorn of my youth.
One night, we were commiserating about some late 20s-sort of angst (surely), and she got the bright idea of making us some popcorn.
Unbeknownst to me, our kitchen contained a 70s era oranged-domed plug-in popcorn popper that my roommate had brought all the way with her from Racine, WI. She pulled it out and got to work. I looked on, dubious that delicious snacks would result from something that I had long ago filed under useless right next to my Pocketfisherman and sweater de-piller.
But approximately ten minutes later I was munching on the most delicious popcorn I had ever had the pleasure of eating. Granted, it was doused with a fair amount of butter, salt and nutritional yeast (try it, youll like it), but there was no denying that the orange dome had created magic. How could I have forgotten how delicious popcorn could be?
Long story short(er), I have since fully incorporated an orange-dome popper into my own kitchen, and use it frequently. But now Im wondering: am I missing the boat? I mean, I consider myself a popcorn expert (cough cough) but is there A BETTER WAY than the orange dome?
