and you know this because...

Should add that Amazon.com has 82% of the 1796 reviews rated it five stars:

Yes I am leery about people getting a free product in return for their "honest" reviews, but I am not seeing that here, not to mention Amazon has excellent return policy including free return shipping, so what is the risk?

Doesn't seem like it to me.

I picked one at random and it seems like some random guy who is moving to college dormitory based on his previous unrelated reviews of big name products and generic household stuff.

When it says "Verified purchase" it means that this review is made by someone who has this product in their account's purchase history.

They can get away with it by offering 99% off coupon

FYI, "Verified Purchase" means nothing.

Companies have had people buy an item from Amazon and they reimburse them after the fact (maybe even before).

Of course, with 1800 reviews, the average rating may be truer than otherwise ... but it could still be stuffed.

Please explain to me why would someone want to make pasta in a plastic rectangular box inside a microwave.

Thanks, OP.

Instead of getting thanks on the deal or insights/commments on someone who uses the product, yet ... A bit sad ...

For someone who works during the days and return home to cook for family during evenings ... Sometimes, if not all the times, he/she would like to prepare a meal in a fast, convenient way ... Not to mention the cleanup and lunch prep for kids afterwards ... Not everyone have all day/night to prepare and cook a fantastic meal every night ...

So a silly microwave gadget is faster and more convenient than dropping pasta into a pot of boiling water?? :facepalm:

FWIW I've been cooking pasta for years in a microwave oven using a glass covered casserole like this: Pyrex 6001024 Bakeware 2-Quart Casserole Dish with Lid. No need to worry about cooking in plastic containers and/or BPA risk.

IIRC I paid $1 or $2 for the dish at a thrift store, i.e. a lot less than $25.

Please don't buy this.

Pasta are easy to cook.
A friend served me microwave pasta once, it was disgusting.
Some were still hard, huge chunk sticking together, a total mess.
