Reheating Methods

The first thing to consider when reheating food is which method to use. There are several options available, each with their own pros and cons, and the method you choose will depend on the type of food you’re reheating and your personal preference. Here are some of the most common reheating methods:


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.
