Rapid Ramen Cooker

Someone in my family loves Ramen for lunch. The little blocks of Ramen that come wrapped in cellophane, that is. Santa brought the Rapid Ramen Cooker as a stocking stuffer gift.

Okay, so tonight, I really wanted something that was more than a light snack, but not too fussy, etc. I decided Ramen would work. The instructions are to drop the ramen block into the cooker, add water to a line, and microwave for 3 minutes. Then season/add whatever you want.

It worked. Exactly as described. Ramen noodles were cooked perfectly. Plus, one could cook and eat the ramen in the same container. It cleans up in a microwave. Where was this when I was in college???

I don't have a "cooker". Jeannie likes quick Ramen noodles so, I use a small pot and chop and add veggies, maybe leftover meat and seasonings of choice in the last minute of cooking. Makes a good "I'm too tired to cook" meal.

Interesting. When I make ramen I'm in a hurry or lazy and don't add anything. It takes like 5 minutes on the stove.

Interesting. They sell a bowl specifically for ramen. I put the ramen into a bowl, add the seasoning packet contents and water. Microwave for three minutes and it's ready to go.

Farmer Jon, this takes 3 min and does not need a pan. I add veggies, sometimes steamed shrimp, and my favorite is an egg where the center is jammy.

Andy, I think this is the same: 3 min ramen bowl. It is kitschy.

Bah. He had zero interest in using it. I had to show him that it could be done! :winks:
