MAGGI® has been the pioneer of 2 minute noodles and we have stayed true to that claim for the last 34 years. If you follow the suggested method of preparation, as mentioned on the back of every pack, it would take 2 minutes to cook the noodles. However, it is very common for consumers to customize the method of preparation a little bit, depending on their style and choice. For example, the quantity of water used varies a lot depending on how soupy one wants their MAGGI® to be. Such personal touches may cause the cooking time to vary.
