Heating Directions

Note: The following contains general guidance for preparing our items to enjoy; should you have a specific question or suggestion, please do not hesitate to call us at (615) 352-0296 or email us at greatfoodtogo@comcast.net. The final results of cooking and heating are dependent upon many variables (e.g., position in a conventional oven, microwave power/intensity, and temperature of item prior to heating). Because such variables complicate our ability to offer ideal directions for every situation, be sure to always use your own best judgment.

   

  • For black-bottom containers:

    • If microwave is preferred, our recommendation is to remove the food (i.e., place on a glass plate or in a glass bowl) and warm for 2-3 minutes (with the microwave set to the "high" setting).  ​

    • If conventional oven is preferred, remember that black-bottom containers CANNOT under any circumstance be placed in an oven; contents must always be removed from the container, placed in an oven-safe dish, and warmed at 350ºF for ~20 minutes.

  • For aluminum containers:

    • Everything in an aluminum container (Beef Lasagna, Shepherd's Pie, etc.) can be placed directly in a conventional oven (having removed the plastic top, of course) and warmed at 350ºF for either ~25 minutes (small container) or ~35 minutes (large container). 

    • Never place aluminum containers in a microwave oven. 

  • Chicken Pot Pies

    • Small: Heat in oven at 350ºF for ~20 minutes 

    • Large: Heat in oven at 350ºF for ~40 minutes
