3.0 out of 5 stars not what I expected June 10 2008
By Carl F. Hoffman - Published on Amazon.com
When I bought this book (and the Zen cooker) what I was expecting to
get was something similar to a slow cooker for Japanese dishes which
used a microwave. That is to say, I thought each recipe would be a
complete meal, in which you would put all the ingredients in the
cooker, turn on the microwave and presto -- dinner tonight! This is
not the case. The recipes, from what I have tried, are good, but if you
want to make a complete meal from these you will have a bit of trouble
since you have to cook each section (i.e. rice, vegetables, main dish)
separately you have the trouble of keeping them all warm.

The book and the Zen Cooker are not cheap, and even though the
recipes are good, for what I bought it for -- it was not a good
purchase for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy, Innovative, and Beautiful! Dec 3 2007
By SB - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The recipes in this book are all cooked in a cute microwave pot. I have found all of the food really simple to make, with few ingredients and cooking times of only a few minutes. You can treat the recipes like tapas dishes and make a varied meal by putting a few of them together. What I love most is that veggies retain their color and nutrition, and are much more flavorful than steaming or boiling on the stove. It's also amazing to find a book and device that can cook meat and fish deliciously in the microwave!!! Lastly, and so helpful is that almost all of the recipes have beautiful full page photos. As mentioned in the Oprah write up, the Cook-Zen pot can be bought online at [...] Like the other reviewer, I am giving the books and pots as Christmas gifts, especially to my niece for cooking in her college dorm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product and recipes Dec 1 2007

I love this product and the recipes in the book are great. Saw it recommended in Oprah magazine. Have been using it for a couple of weeks and have made 6-7 meals. Meats and fish remain flavorful and juicy and broths with them are delicious. made the best rice I've ever made with it. I did have to make a trip to an Asian grocery to get some ingredients. Veggies are wonderful this way and keep all their nutritional values. Am giving a zen-cooker to my son with this book for Christmas. Would love to have more recipes if anyone knows of any.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious cooking made easy! July 9 2007
By Toni Brogan - Published on Amazon.com
Last night I made a meal entirely by using the Cook-Zen. Dinner for two, in under 40 mins, with a variety of 7 different dishes. All cooked perfectly and extremely delicious. Not to mention, no kitchen mess to clean up afterwards.
Try this easy and simple to use product. Dinner will never be a chore again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great pot Dec 4 2009
By hannah - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was intrigued by the story and information about this pot. It sounded and behaves somewhat like a microwave presure cooker. I've yet to explore the Japanese recipies included with the pot and the focus of the author's cookbook, but have found this little wonder is superbe for microwaving veggies: in 4 minutes a FULL pot of perfect green beans was on the table. Its easy to use, easy to clean, good for direct table serving. Everyone asked for ordering information after dinner.
