Reheating in the Microwave

Quick and convenient. Perfect for those in a hurry. Please note that lids of our containers are not microwavable.
 

Steps

  1. Pull the Lid off, leave the food into the Microwavable Container or Transfer the meal to a microwave-safe dish.

  2. Add a small amount of liquid (broth or water) to the dish to prevent dryness.

  3. Cover the dish with a microwave-safe lid or microwave-safe plastic wrap, leaving a small vent for steam to escape.

  4. Microwave the meal in short bursts, typically 30 seconds to 1 minute at a time, on medium to medium-high power.

  5. Stir between each burst to distribute heat evenly.
     

Continue until the meal is heated thoroughly, ensuring it doesn't become overcooked.
 

Being our product mostly heavy liquid based foods (Pasta wt sauce, Risottos, Rice and Grain, Stew, Soups, Entrees wt sauce and starches etc. etc. etc.), we do not suggest to Reheat our product in the Air Fryer.

Reheating full meals like Soups, Grain, Risotto or Pasta on the Hob

This is the method you’ll find every chef would choose when it comes to how to reheat. Why? It allows for precise control over the reheating process. An ideal way for retaining the creamy texture and original flavors of your meal.

Steps

  1. Place the meal in a saucepan or skillet.

  2. Add a small amount of broth or water to restore moisture.

  3. Heat the item over low to medium-low heat.

  4. Stir frequently to ensure even heating and prevent sticking.

  5. Once the item is heated through and has regained its creamy consistency, remove it from the heat and serve.

Reheating full meals like proteins, larger portions of Vegetables or Baked goods in the Oven

If you have a larger portion of main protein you’re looking to reheat, then this method is just the ticket, as the oven will provide gentle and uniform heating.

Steps

  1. Preheat your oven to a low temperature, around 300°F (150°C).

  2. Place the full meal in an ovenproof dish.

  3. Add a small amount of liquid to maintain moisture.

  4. Cover the dish with aluminum foil.

  5. Heat the item in the preheated oven for about 10-15 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

  6. Check for the desired consistency, stir if necessary, and serve.

Remember. Each of these reheating techniques has its advantages, and one might work better for you than the other given particular circumstances. Whatever the situation calls for, you’ll now know just how to reheat your meals whether it’s on the hob, in the microwave, or in the oven.
