Eat more popcorn, fewer hulls

The Kernel Katcher is one of those gadgets that makes you slap your forehead and say, "Why didn't someone come up with this sooner?"

Pure popcorn. Just Poppin

Ever wondered what would happen if a dentist invented a popcorn bowl? Well, wonder no more, and behold the Kernel Katcher, which neatly collects your unpopped kernels and excess hulls so that you can enjoy a net popcorn experience, with no worries of chipping a tooth on an unpopped kernel.

Pop your corn any way you like, then dump it into the Kernel Katcher. Snap on the lid, shake the bowl in a circular motion, and your popcorn waste falls into the catcher compartment at the bottom. You can fit about 13 cups of popped corn in there and still separate the wheat from the chaff--er, the popcorn from the leftovers.

After you've enjoyed your pure popcorn snack, you can unscrew the bottom to dump the hulls, then stick the entire bowl in the dishwasher.

You can order one online in red, white, blue, or black--it'll run about $20, with shipping.
