One of the best inventions in the kitchen (apart from Coffee Machines)

Who remembers making popcorn as a child (I know that was a long time ago for me).  Mum would pour a great deal of oil in the base of a saucepan, pre heat it, then pour in the popcorn kernels.  On went the lid and we would stand around patiently waiting for the popping sound.
