Supur-Kist Two Popcorn topping - Reheat?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just recieved a case of Odell's "Supur-Kist Two", and my Popcorn Buttery Topping warmer/dispenser will be here tomorrow.

The Odell's package indicates that the topping should be stored at room temperature, even after opening, but nowhere does the package or their web site mention how many times the product can safely be reheated. I did some searches and I've never seen this question answered with 100% certainty, so I called Odell's and asked them. They claim "Supur-Kist Two" can be heated and then cooled to room temperature as often as required and doing so will not affect product quality.

More specifically, the representative said I could dump a bottle in the warmer and simply use it until it's gone--even if that process takes a dozens of reheats and a couple months to accomplish.

Unless someone else has a contrary opinion, I guess I'll be the Guinea pig here. I'll instruct my wife to post a follow-up if I wind up in the hospital or die.

All in the name of furthering home theater gastronomy.

Today I dumped two 16-oz bottles in my topping warmer and fired it up for the first time. The taste was superb, so if it alters in any way in the coming weeks I'll definitely notice.

I only eat popcorn once per week, so this batch is going to last quite some time.

I forgot to follow up.

The experiment was a failure. The large dispenser is now a very expensive decoration. Unless you go through an insane amount of topping every week, save your money.

I wound up getting the smaller plastic squeeze bottle thing that sits in a warm water bath. It works great.

I use the three packs of Baby bottle warmers that can be found at Wegmans. They are usually around $2 and they last quite some time. Just throwing them in the microwave works great.

On a different note, I buy Rico's buttering toppering, which Cinemark uses. I placed an order with them last year for one gallon but they sent me four of them, for the price of one. The next day they changed their checkout system so you had to order in bulk. 12 salt packages or 4 gallons of butter at a time.

I have two things of butter left still and was wondering if anyone knows how long this stuff is good for if it sits on the shelf?

I was told the shelf life of unopened oil is 1 year. Once opened, it is suppose to be good for 6 months. You can refridgerate it to make it last longer. Basically, taste it and if it is not rancid, it should be fine.

That's true.

The problem with the big commercial topping dispenser I mentioned in my first post is that condensation from the water bath accumulates on the underside of the lid and then drips down into the topping. This water creates a pretty fertile environment for bacteria, and the topping goes bad in a short period of time (like after a couple of re-heats). Because a very large amount of topping must be used at once in the commercial dispenser (or the pump won't work), unless you go through at least 32 oz. of topping in less than a week it is very impractical for home use.

Thank you for the tip. I had the exact same question when looking to purchace something similar. While we do pop quite a bit of corn....it would only be occaionally when we we want extra butter.

Thanks. I was looking all over their site and they mentioned an 8 month shelf life. The two I have left are unopened, 13 months old, but look good to me. My better sense is telling me to dump them so I don't get sick.


P.S. We need to revive the old "best butter topping" thread. Would be interesting to see what everyone is using these days.
