Does this ramen cooker use some kind of space magic? It claims on the cover that it "reduces sodium by 50%." If this were true, I'd cook all my food in this cheesy black plastic container.

*Edit* - From the site, "The instruction on the stove call for 2 cups of water and the entire seasoning packet. The Rapid Ramen Cooker only requires 1 cup of water, which means you only need half the seasoning packet thus reducing the sodium up to 50%." What a joke.

No experience with this product, but having a LOT of experience with ramen, I can tell you that the bowl you microwave it in can make a huge difference. Personally, I ONLY use Tupperware 886 20 oz bowls. They are extremely old, but trust me, they are THE perfect bowl for cooking ramen. They can still be found on ebay or amazon 3rd party [amazon.com].

Here's the correct way to make them in this bowl, personally and carefully developed over my life:

EDIT: Added imgur album for the non believers. Just try it, trust me.

PICTURES [imgur.com]

1) While still in the package, crush the ramen noodles until there are no large blocks left, just individual noodle pieces. This of course means the noodles won't be long and stringy but more like rice, but trust me, they are great this way. (This can be a messy process if you pierce the package, so I recommend putting the package into the bowl and just crushing it downward with your palm, transitioning to using your fist as you work your way through the block)

2) Pour crushed ramen into 886 bowl, making sure the top is level. DO NOT ADD THE SEASONING YET

3) Add ONLY enough water to cover the noodles, this part is very important. Also the clock is ticking from this point on, you want to move to the next step as soon as possible, before the noodles absorb too much water. DO NOT ADD THE SEASONING YET

4) Microwave for 3 minutes. This will depend on your microwave wattage, but 900-1200W should perform similarly in most cases, but you may have to play around with the timing. I have had microwaves that were able to do this correctly in as little as 1:30.

5) Your noodles should come out with zero water left standing in the bowl, and the noodles themselves should be moist. If they are dry on top, that is okay, but next time adjust your timing down on the microwave.

6) Quickly stir in the seasoning pouch before the little water left on the noodles evaporates. If you do this correctly, the noodles will be very sticky as you stir in the seasoning, so some effort will be required. Just keep spinning them around. The size and shape of the 886 bowl makes it perfect for stirring efforts with a fork.

You should be left with a sticky mass of ramen that will blow your mind. The best flavor for this method is creamy chicken, but any will work. You're welcome.

a microwave safe bowl costs less than $1....Is this used to cook a dozen bags of ramen at the same time?

Lol, classic advertising gimmicks. That being said I bought the mac and cheese one, it only for clean up (and can use it as ramen cooker).
