The Foods You Should Never Put In The Microwave

Last week we talked about the foods that you shouldn’t reheat because doing so increases the risk of food poisoning.

There are some foods that you really shouldn’t put in the microwave because according to The Food Network, other methods of reheating fare better.


First up is chicken. Reheating it in the microwave often leaves it dry and tasteless but baking it in the oven, covered in tinfoil, solves that problem.


If you’re a steak fan, the first step to reheating is to slice it into thin strips. Then place in pan with a little oil on a medium heat.

Pizza is also better reheated in the oven but if you’ve only got one/two slices left over, place it a ‘dry skillet’ covered in tinfoil on the stove and after a couple of minutes you’ll have warm pizza oozing melted cheese.



Pasta is best reheated in a saucepan over a medium heat, stir the sauce frequently and watch that it doesn’t coagulate.

We've definitely reheated all four in the microwave before (oops) so this has come in very handy!
