My Review:
“Microwave Cookoff: All You Need to Know to Become a Masterchef” isn’t a typical microwave cookbook, but an informative guide on how to cook in a microwave for beginners.  The book gives valuable information on everything about cooking in a microwave from what type of cookware and utensils to use to typical ways to cook in a microwave such as defrosting or boiling, heat settings and more. The author has also included many recipes for microwave cooking from mouthwatering full entrees to delicious sweet desserts.  The recipes include some typical microwave favorites like potatoes, oatmeal and eggs.  However, Smith goes the extra mile to give recipes and instruction on how to prepare food that may not typically be prepared in a microwave such as yummy burgers or comforting lobster bisque.  In addition to these recipes the author goes a step further and gives some useful tips about microwave cooking and includes a helpful shopping list conveniently located in the front of the book that lists the ingredients and spices used in the recipes in the book.  
I highly recommend this book to anyone new to microwave oven cooking as well as anyone looking for delicious recipes that can be prepared in a microwave oven.
