A great book for folks that do not cook in a microwave....it is made for cooking! June 12 2014

I have purchased many copies of this book to give as gifts.
This book changed the way I prepare meals, and entertain guests.
The book has great photos, and separates the types of foods and how to cook each type.
Beef, pork, fish, vegetables, fruits and offers great suggestions for sauces to add flavors to dishes.
So many ideas....for instance foods cooked long enough do brown a bit, not crispy brown...but nice enough.
Most recipes have variations...which I love! I may not have something, but I do have something else.
The book also references many things NOT cooked in a microwave.
This book changed the way, and opened up many other ideas on great foods easily prepared and enjoyed.
Growing up with a Mom that cooked meals, and seasoning was either salt or pepper.
Mom and Dad visit and I cook, and Dad asked where did you learn to cook?
It is all in this book, and it is the best darn cookbook in my home.
Copyright 1986, but as good today as anytime before.

excellent book, in good condition June 19 2014

This is a good basic book on using the microwave to do more than warm up frozen dinners. I had checked it out from the local library, tried some recipes and decided to add it to my collection. I have used it several times since I received it.

great book - out of print April 26 2009

This is a wonderful book for anyone who wants to use the microwave for more than just reheating leftovers. Unfortunately I think it is out of print.
A Classic for the Microwave Chef Oct. 4 2009
By Celia E. Hales - Published on Amazon.com

Mastering Microwave Cookery. By Marcia Cone and Thelma Snyder. Photographs by Michael Geiger. New York: Simon and Schuster, 1986.

This classic has over 800 recipes, the only source needed for learning and executing microwave cooking. The recipes start with easy directions, and then move to the more complicated (and, perhaps, the better recipes). I have tested seafood and poultry creations, and found them simple to do and tasty. The more experienced microwave chef can use the recipes even without reading the directions.

I purchased this book because I already owned (also available from amazon.com) two other cookbooks by the same authors: Microwave Italian Cookbook; and Microwave French Cookbook. These are more complicated recipes, but highly tasty, and I recommend these as well.

Happy eating!

Why Is This Book Out Of Print? It's Fantastic! Dec 28 2010
By trilingual1946 - Published on Amazon.com
Really great and comprehensive microwave cookbook that contains virtually all your favorites! Easy, well-written recipes with many variations offered! I especially like the Hungarian goulash with sauerkraut, and the risotto recipe offers perfect results that are a snap to make -- you'll never make risotto the old-fashioned way again!
