Popcorn with any flavoring you can dream up. Sur La Table

If you're exhausted from preparing the Thanksgiving feast and need a break from working your way through the leftovers, step away from it all and just enjoy something simple and easy. Don't worry, you have the days ahead to work your way through all those leftovers; they will still be there. Whether you are burnt out from shopping, or stuffed from stuffing, take a moment to sit back and let the microwave do all the work.

As we all know, there are a lot of microwave popcorn varieties available. Options range from the familiar, such as kettle corn and caramel to the somewhat mysterious flavor "movie theater butter." (We all know what it tastes like, but just what is it?) Regardless of what flavor you choose, it's predetermined without any customization available to you while it is popping. Not that that's a bad thing, but for those that wish for convenience and control there is another way.

The Microwave Popcorn Popper from Catamount is made of microwave-safe borosilicate glass and has a 2.5-quart capacity. The best part is that it comes with a mesh top, which lets you simply place a pad of butter on top. As the popcorn pops, the butter melts and you have popcorn flavored exactly the way you want. If you still can't pull yourself away from those Thanksgiving leftovers, you can always try inventing a new flavor. Who knows? Maybe the next great popcorn flavor will be gravy.
