Reviews - What do our customers think?
not what I expected  Jun 10, 2008
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.
It's not a cookbook, it's an instruction manual!  Jan 12, 2008
The description of this book did not indicate it was relating solely to a specialized, microwavable device. (There was a picture of the "missing" item on the cover, but no words.) We bought the book as a gift - but not the device - and as such the recipient was somewhat put out. He thought the book was ancillary to the device! Needless to say that we were embarassed.
Easy, Innovative, and Beautiful!  Dec 3, 2007
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.
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.
Delicious cooking made easy!  Jul 9, 2007
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!
