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

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

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

    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

    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.

    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.
