I learned this 'neat' trick from another teacher and I was amazed at how simple it was. I ran our basketball concession stand along with another teacher for 16 years and had the problem of pouring the messy popcorn oil into the measuring cup with each batch. Find an old percolator type coffee maker that makes 20 - 30 cups and throw away the cord and insides. Clean it really well and pour the popcorn oil into it. The spigot is so easy to work and just the right amount of space to get a one cup measure under it. I don't run concessions anymore but I might with this great tip!
