Whats the opinion regarding toivling a popcorn maker?
Anyone ever tried and did it work afterwards?

See here Rabbi Hieneman holds you dont need to if it will break afterwards but I am thinking my Rav will hold it will  need a teivilah.

First you have to clarify if it will break before you can use above mentioned heter

Is a "do not immerse" warning good enough?

I once had a  new deep fryer and my rav told me to go to a jew to destroy by cutting to plug off and putting it back on. That was good enough to make it as if the a jew made it.
I wonder if he will tell me to do same thing now.

Does it have any siman that identifies it as kosher/coming from a kosher venue?
Don't ask stupid questions and you won't get stupid answers

Call the venue and ask them to confirm that they sent it out with Uber eats. Ask them if they can somehow identify it as coming from them (ask to speak to the mashgiach)

If they say they sent it out it is OK to eat? Either way I just had them send me another one I hope its worth the wait

Did you get the item before from the same place?  Maybe it has a "cool food design" that it hard to recreate, on Pareve, you should only need one siman.
I am correct?

If it's not meat or dairy, IMHO I'd think so, but AYLOR

Some whiskeys are owned by the Deutsch family wine & spirits. They own Bib & Tucker, Redemption among others. Is anyone aware of issues regarding Chametz Sheavar?

Found this in a wagon by the bingo in lakewood.
Should I bring it back in? Keep it? Or leave it in the wagon hoping the owner comes and gets it?

Chances are the guy also forgot to pay for it too.
I'm not who you think I am.

That's why they have a security guard to make sure no one walks out with unpaid items.

Ended up bringing it back into the store, if the guy did pay for it and realized I left it in the wagon, he will go back to the store thinking it's in his wagon or someone brought it into the store, and ask if someone brought in a case of Seltzer that he forgot to take , and lastly could very possibly be he forgot to pay for it like you said.

Yeah ok.
Have you ever been to costco? That's the first thing they're checking for to make sure all the bottom of the cart items were paid for.
 Hence bingo is trying to imitate the costco style hence the doorman to wish you farewell is suppose to give a peak at the receipt to make sure your not walking away with unpaid items.

Interesting that none of the kashrus organizations have these on their lists.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.
