When I went to college, we were only allowed to have a popcorn popper. Back then they were just round-bottomed kettles with a heating coil underneath. If you were good, though, you could cook damned near anything in one of them.

Of course, anything that could be boiled -- soup, spaghetti, Rammen, hotdogs, etc. -- was easy. Bacon and eggs was a a bit more challenging, but not too tough.

Baking, though, became an art. You had to have a round rack that was just a bit smaller than the popper so it would sit above the bottom, and you had to have a baking pan that not only would fit, but you also had to be able to get it out. I remember one kid baked an apple pie, and another made a 3-layer chocolate cake.

Most were taller than this and round on the bottom, but you get the idea.

The steam also warms the buns. You do not have to be in college to enjoy. Never tried it with ramen. Microwave too accesable. I bet you could make Jell-O in a coffee maker. Easy to pour for shots.

I`ve made spaghetti, mac`n`cheese, hotdogs, ramen, and even hard boiled eggs in a coffee pot while in college. we weren`t allowed hotplates, so we would have sunday dinner, everyone would bring their coffee pots into the common room and we would have a "pot" luck

Gerry: Yeah, it totally would. Water doesn`t have to be boiling to make ramen. Just hot.

Brilliant. I wish I had thought of this, back when I was on the road.

That is ingenious.
Brilliant in it`s simplicity.
I don`t think it gets hot enough to make ramen though.
