FAQs

Containers:


1. The containers are single use and microwavable. Warming time will vary depending on your microwave. Follow your microwave manufacturers suggestions for heating your meals.


2. If you prefer not to heat in a plastic container, remove the meal from the container and heat on a microwave safe dish or container. Containers are microwaveable, but some people prefer not to microwave items in plastic.


3. It is recommended that you discard any used containers. They are not suitable for the dishwasher.


Heating:

1. Dense items like a lasagna or casserole are best if warmed in 2 or 3 short intervals. Allow the heat to transfer before warming again. Stirring or cutting into pieces helps the meal to heat more evenly.

2. Soups or stews can be warmed in the container. This works best when warmed in short intervals and stirred in between heating times.

3. Some meals will contain foods that do not need to be warmed. Remove the item before warming the rest of the meal.

4. Most sauces are placed in a smaller container. Add the sauce before or after warming according to your taste. 

5. Pitas and wraps may be eaten warm or cold. Heating 30 second will normal take the chill off.

6. Salads and items with fruit or other foods are best when eaten cold even though they contain a fully cooked protein. 

7. Remove foil from wraps before heating. Wraps such as a Chicken Salad wrap may be eaten cold.

8. Breakfast wraps tend to pull moisture from the eggs. Cooking or warming them in a toaster oven is recommended for best results. If microwaving, allow the wrap to sit uncovered to help remove some of the moisture.


* Customer suggestion: I had a quick idea I wanted to share with you. I know that on your website, you talk about using a toaster over to reheat breakfast wraps. I have found a really good method. If you pop the wrap in the microwave for 30 seconds and then throw it on a George Foreman Grill (everyone has an old one of those sitting around), it gives the wrap a nice crispy crust, and nice grill marks. It completely gets rid of the soggy tortilla and makes the wrap 10 times better. It is probably also quicker than a toaster oven.
