Harvard Common Press. The cookbook is great for a higher wattage microwave. My old books are for a 1000 watt and I bought a Panasonic 1250 watt that does not have a cookbook for it. Thanks to Wal Mart for having this cookbook.

This is for a microwave oven with 1100 watts. The details in the front of the book are great. Be careful if you get a microwave cookbook with a 1986 copyright as the ovens then were not 1100 watts and that makes a big difference as does a cookbook from 1992. The recipes here are new and reflect our changing tastes such as "South Indian Eggplant Slices." Then she throws in corn on the cob and mashed potatoes.
There can be no question that with my sweet touch I liked the section on "Sweet Treats" the best. Enjoy!

This book is really good for learning the principles of cooking by microwave. The first chapter describes how the microwave works, and understanding how it works is key to using it correctly. I guess I won't go into the physics here, but it's really very interesting and explains so well the phenomena I observed but didn't understand. I now know exactly which objectives the microwave will achieve efficiently and effectively, and how to achieve those objectives.

My favourite part of the book, besides the 'how it woks' chapter, are the boxed explanations which allow you to generalize beyond rote recipes. For example, how to cook vegetables in the microwave with type specific notes (leafy greens vs winter squashes).

I have not actually tried a single recipe, because my goal in buying the book was not to prepare entire dishes or meals. Rather, I wanted to understand how the microwave could make my life easier. I felt that the microwave could decrease prep time, decrease cleaning time and save energy, with, in some cases, superior results. This book confirmed that suspicion and showed me how it could be done.

That being said, I found a number of recipes that looked intriguing. Originally I didn't intend to make entire dishes, but now I plan to.

The production quality is excellent, despite the complete lack of photographs. The book is very cleanly typeset, with subtle but effective use of colour.

Good tips on some uses of the microwave that are valuable time savers that we were unaware of. Some of the recipes worked for us but many did not. But overall the book was a good buy.

Lots of really fabulous recipes to be cooked in the microwave!

A review by Marty Martindale, Editor, Foodsite Magazine

Most of us have owned a microwave for many years, and often they still mystify us with mishaps or negative food outcomes. Here is why this book is a find for all of us: Hensperger's dad is a microwave engineer. So, it is with knowledge, we can take her first chapter, The Essentials of Microwave Cooking, quite seriously and learn quite a lot about our oft' times wayward cooking box. In it she not only deals with important do's and don'ts, she also includes many of the little method tips that make a well-behaved microwave so handy.

Here's some of the recipes, 320 pages of them, we thought interesting:

PERFECT SCRAMBLED EGGS
You only need unsalted butter, large eggs, milk or cream and seasoning.

CUP OF MISO
Water, tofu, scallions, miso paste, lemon juice and cilantro

TOKYO CLAM CHOWDER
Butter, onion, celery, potato, broth, soy milk, parsley, potato flakes, canned clams and miso paste

POLENTA CASSEROLE WITH FONTINA AND TOMATO SAUCE
Olive oil, onion, celery, carrot, garlic, cannedc tomatoes, parsley, oregano, basil, polenta and fontina cheese

FIVE-STAR SESAME BROCCOLI
Sesame seeds, broccoli and seasoning. (We think a dash of sesame oil would be good on this.)

ITALIAN-STYLE EGGPLANT SLICES
Italian parsley, basil leaves, capers, garlic, bread crumbs, olive oil and eggplant
SCALLOPED POTATOES
Potatoes, flour, butter, cream, Parmesan cheese and seasoning

SAN FRANCISCO CIOPPINO
Olive oil, onion, bell pepper, garlic, canned tomatoes, tomato sauce, white wine, bay leaf, parsley, basil, oregano, Dungeness crab and shrimp

MEXICAN RED CHILE SAUCE
Tomato sauce, canned green chiles, cumin, chili powder and oregano

PARCHMENT-WRAPPED CHICKEN
Chicken, garlic, gingerroot, hoisin sauce, ketchup, soy sauce, sugar and sesame oil

WHOLE BERRY CRANBERRY SAUCE

MICROSAVE BROWNIES WITH NUTS

Awesome cookbook. I was living in a small bachelor apartment without a full kitchen, and this book kept me well fed. Even now that I have a full kitchen, I still use some of the recipes in this book because they are so good.

I moved into an apartment with a 1 KW microwave and no experience in using one. This book helped me to get the utensils I needed, and not to do anything dangerous. I'm still learning about recipes.
Would rec commend to anyone who wants a microwave cookbook. Lots of interesting recipes in it.
