ya great way to get cancer-- it's like smoking out of an aluminum bowl.... not very smart -- i'll take an empty stomach over this anyday

calm down---you can get cancer from anything nowadays

its the same danger as cooking plastic containers or even bowls in the microwave, but wait hypocrite, you dont cook out of the microve right? i mean in order to do that it woould mean you would have cancer?

Oh snap, I can't go out in the sun, I might get cancer. D:

probably worse off from any of the butter
this is certainly better than microwaved popcorn

is there any other material that you could you besies aluminum.. like that is already close to that shape?

Thats pretty neat, but why bother? Just put some kernels in a paper bag and microwave.
