I tried a traditional, old-fashioned recipe (one in which you use a candy thermometer and stir on the stove), and this one two days apart. From a taste test, I really couldn't say the old-fashioned recipe tasted any better. This recipe is so fast and so much easier. I have an 1100 watt microwave and ended up adding the peanuts after miking 2 minutes, cooked 4 minutes more, added the butter, cooked 4 1/2 minutes more, added the soda and vanilla, and poured out to cool on warmed cookie sheets, which had been buttered and lightly sprinkled with salt, as suggested by another reviewer. This is just a great method, and a wonderful way to make lots for gifts or just for the fun of it.
