    Default silicone steamer for popcorn!

    I found these silicone steamers that work for homemade microwave popcorn! I currently use a brown paper bag, but it would be nice to have this option, too. The only thing is, it's a Canadian company.

    Has anyone seen anything like this in the U.S.?

    Amazon has a few that look similar. Here's one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001JJMWXE

    How would you cook popcorn in one of those? I'm intrigued!

    Default silicone steamer for popcorn!

    I make popcorn in the microwave with a Pyrex bowl. You don't need any oil. The heat pops the popcorn.

    ETA: in my microwave it takes about 3.5 minutes, and more kernels pop if I heat the bowl empty for a minute before putting the popcorn in.

    I have not used silicone steamers for popcorn, but purchased several in different shapes from http://www.shopmastrad.com/Default.asp. We use them almost daily! Great for baking fish (like en papillote) in the oven, and for steaming veggies and corn on the cob in the microwave.

    Right now I just use a brown paper bag from Panera for the same purpose!
