You’re Reheating Your Leftovers All Wrong

When you’re a single person trying to live frugally, sometimes, leftovers are a way of life. Although I love to cook, usually the only time I do is on the weekend and when I do, inevitably there are leftovers. I have never really given much thought to the art of reheating them. I thought that was the main reason for a microwave! Turns out–I’m wrong.

According to the smarty pants food experts at places like Bon Apetit and The Consumerist there are very few things you should reheat in the microwave. Coffee and casseroles; that’s about it! Soup? Nope. Muffins? Uh, uh. What about vegetables? Forget it.


While I agree that many food items don’t come out of the microwave tasting or looking as good as they did when they were first made, I will continue to commit infractions against this definitive guide to reheating leftovers. I just don’t have the time or inclination to heat up the stove to reanimate a bowl of chicken soup, or fire up the stove to rejuvenate last Sunday’s roasted veggies.

But if you do here it is: the “definitive” guide to reheating food.
