First thing to get out of the way - everything that the cooker claims is true. Throw the ramen in the container, fill with water to the fill line, cook in the microwave for 3 minutes, and boom - ramen ready for the seasoning packet and consumption.
The cooker also claims in a roundabout way health benefits, because of the smaller amount of water used. Since there is less water, the makers say that you can use half the seasoning packet, which cuts the "sodium" in half. While most of that is true (assuming all the sodium in ramen is in the seasoning, which it isn't), it also leads to the product's main drawback - minimal soup.
Many eat ramen (and see ramen on packaging) as part of soup - you get noodles and a large bowl of soup. Using the instructions of the cooker, you get noodles - cooked great - and a minimal amount of soup, if any at all. This is great if you're the type who just eats the noodles and leaves the soup base to be poured down the drain after eating, but if you're like my wife and enjoy both parts equally, you'll find yourself cooking the noodles, then pouring hot water into the bowl after cooking to get your soup, and in doing so using the entire soup flavor packet, eliminating the "health benefit".
That said, it's still extremely handy to have and use, and I haven't had a time where the noodles didn't come out well cooked. It may take a few times to learn how much time you wish to use (the more time, the less water you end up with) and what to do with your end product (add more water at the end, etc.) I've used several different kinds of ramen from the local Asian market from Japan, Thailand, China, and Indonesia, and all have cooked well. Just know that this is more of a "noodle cooker" than a "soup cooker", and adjust accordingly, and you'll enjoy your product.
There is simply nothing misrepresented here.
You put ramen in.
Fill water to line.
Two come in the pack, and they are bpa-free dishwasher safe. They are much thicker and more durable then appear in the picture. Plus they are cheap. Perfect value item.
Here is the most clear version of INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE INVENTOR:
1. Put noodle brick in the bowl.
2. Fill with any temperature water to fill line (half way up on inside of bowl) with noodles submerged.
3. Cook on high in microwave for 4 minutes.
4. Stir in half the packet of seasoning.
Since this uses half the water of stove top cooking, they use half the seasoning which cuts the salt intake in half. True that this doesn't make as much watery soup as the stove top method. But for me, that fine I don't really want so much watery soup.
I have tried these variations:
o tried it with all the packet and you may like it more salty
o tried taking the ramen brick out of the water before cooking, mixing in the seasoning first, so that the noodles soak up more flavor during cooking
o tried cooking for 3 minutes to provided a firmer noodle. Try it out.
