    Cheaper to buy and pop kernels: https://www.woolworths.com.au/shop/productdetails/793538/riv...

    $2.77 for 400g (4 pack)
    $1.95 for 400g kernels

    Best part is you get to DIY flavour. Coconut oil, olive oil, salt, unsalted, caramel, chilli, etc etc. It's quick to do, and you get to control how healthy they are. Make as much or as little as you need.

      Some people like to watch their popcorn pop

        How can you watch them pop when it's in a bag? Use the saucepan with the glass lid for real pop watching, as @prmyab said below.

      Nah you save way more on this once you take into account the time and effort required… This literally only costs 5 seconds of your time.

      Have you calculate your oil cost, your gas cost, and cleaning cost as well ?

        OK I'll indulge you:

        Assuming making 4 equivalent batches to the sachets

        Olive oil from Woolies ($3 for 500ml) -> 4 tbsp -> 60ml -> 36 cents
        Gas cost (supposedly uses between 5 and 15 MJ per hour so lets say 10) -> 10 minutes total gas use -> 1.66 MJ -> 3 cents per MJ -> 5 cents *4
        Cleaning cost -> dishwasher uses ~20L + electricity -> 20 cents of water + 20 cents of electricity -> 40 cents *4

        Total: $4.11 (including kernels)

      In SA kernals are usually $3kg at Afghan and Indian shops. Buy a kg of Vegeta for flavour. Can use a pot with a glass lid and still see the pop.

      Don't forget to say the same about flour and water at every Domino deal

        Why? It's cheap to make dough but toppings would exceed the cost of dominoes.

          Not for a Margherita

          I'm genuinely surprised that Dominos deals get posted here at all, even when they have a special and a pizza is $4 or $5, the cost of ingredients can't be more than $1.
          You can't even buy ingredients as pathetic as dominoes ingredients at a supermarket, but even with better ingredients it's still only a a buck or two if you make a pizza that small.
          Pretty much every neighborhood pizza joint sells a $10-15 pizza that's four times as satisfying, and those frozen sourdough Rustica pizzas are $3.50 on special, and are easily twice as good as a the "value" piece the warm greasy cardboard they call a pizza at Dominos.

            @CitizenCane: I know what you mean but there is a high upstart cost to making pizzas at home on the cheap. You'd need a bag of cheese, tomatoes, meats, mushrooms, other veggies, etc. Though if you made a few pizzas then the cost would be significantly cheaper than Dominoes.

      I put some kernels in a paper bag without oil and microwaved them. Two minutes later they were popped.

      Totally!

      Microwave popcorn is hideous compared to coconut oil and salt popped corn in a stove top pan!

      I've made a wire mesh "lid" for my popcorn pan - it allows the steam to escape and makes for some extra crunchy popcorn! Better than cinema popcorn.

      •  

        Do you have a pic or further description? I'm interested. Also I always added salt afterwards, is that how you do it?

        •  

          It's just some metal flyscreen mesh cut and bent (very crude, but works).

          Regarding salt, I grind it rather fine (mortise and pestle) and add it to the pan with the coconut oil, heat, add corn, pop. Once complete put lid on (a real lid) and shake that salt all over. Empty and enjoy!

    Bought it last time when it was 50% off. It was pretty much tasteless. Can't recommend

    This stuff has been shown to be carcinogenic, better off buying kernels, if you know what you are doing takes no extra time

      Yeah this stuff really is not good for you. There are many varieties of oils to choose from to make the kernels interesting. I used a chili coconut oil last time, yum.

      Thanks for this comment. I've been eating this microwave popcorn my whole life and didn't realise about the health risk. I recently picked up a popcorn maker which just uses hot air and no oil and been loving it ever since!

    Add a spoon of butter and it's good

    Add some Curry Power and BAM you're back at Tokyo Disney in the 1 hour line for your next popcorn flavour!

    Might have to pop in and grab some!
