Reheating Food 101: Guide Showing How to do it Properly

When it comes to reheating food, it can be a bit of a chore. How do you know what temperature to reheat the food at, how long and a bunch more questions.

I know how annoying it is and this is why I created quick and easy guides for your favorite food. So whether you are reheating pizza, fried chicken or even popcorn, we got you covered.

Generally when it comes to reheating, you have different options available to you.


The oven is by far the best way to go about warming up your food, the only downside is that it takes a long time. If you are hungry, you are not looking to sit around and wait, but the best results will definitely come from the oven.


The microwave is quick, but not all foods can be reheated in it. If you have anything that is baked or has a nice crust (pizza), it is not a good idea to warm up in the microwave. It will come out soggy and not something you want to eat.


The skillet is a quick option that can get certain foods reheated perfectly. It can take some getting used to, but it is definitely an option that you should try.


For certain foods, the toaster is the perfect reheating option. You will find that most people opt to use the toaster when doing bread type products.

If you take a look below, you can see the a list of the different types of food that we cover.
