Clear Popcorn Bags

Imagine the excitement! Now you can watch as your corn is popped properly.

It took me a while till I figured out the perfect time setting for my microware to get most of the bag of popcorn popped. This Idea came to me when my daughter said “I can’t see it popping.” Why don’t they make a clear bag to pop the corn in the microwave? The first advantage is that you could tell when you popped the most of the corn. The second would be the entertainment value of watching it all happen. Finally, for you butter lovers, you could put tons of butter on the corn without worrying about it leaking through the bag.

       Wax paper type bag may work (the wax can't melt). Of course colors for the holidays. Maybe you could just make a plastic box with a slot for corn and butter (just like an air popper) and eat it right out of the box. Only problem is you'd have to clean the box. Better make it dishwasher safe or I am going out to the movies.

       Plastic transparent packaging is easily available for use in the microwave. Good idea..

       It's not a bag, but I once owned a transparent plastic bowl with a depression in the bottom, made specifically for popping loose popcorn. The depression holds the unpopped kernels and oil, and the bowl receives the popped corn. The depression is specially shaped with lots of right angles to concentrate the microwaves on the unpopped kernels. And yes, you could see the corn popping and tell by looking when it was mostly done.

       Wouldn't it fill with steam?

       Uh, surely you just wait until you can't hear any more popping?
