Step 2: Microwave bowl and water for 3 minutes so the water is really hot.

Picture of Microwave bowl and water for 3 minutes so the water is really hot.
Since microwaves heat the water from every direction, not just the bottom like stoves, you will never have boiling. It does get hot enough to make the noodles though.

Cooking with plastic in a microwave oven will cause toxins which the plastic is made of to seep into your food. Same with those wonderful popcorn bags. Do the research!! Russia has banned microwaves from use. Check it out!!

Not quite true - water boils in the microwave just like any other heat source. Under just the right circumstances (such sitting very still in a very smooth-walled container) water can rise above 100 deg c without boiling, which can be dangerous, but this has nothing to do with being heated from all sides. Don't believe me? Just stick a big cup of water in there and let it run for maybe 10-15 minutes. It will be boiling its heart out by the end.
