I remember as a kid my mother reheating leg of lamb the next day-it was repulsive.

I am the same way with roast turkey or chicken reheated in the microwave - blech! I'd rather eat it cold.

But popping leftover pizza in the oven on a cookie sheet or right on the rack - 350 degrees for about 12 minutes - works fine for me!

I do reheat pizza, and everything else for that matter, in the microwave. I don't really get the percentages, I just stick it in there for about 45 seconds and walla~!

I've always maintained that things like lasagna and chili are better the next day.

For whoever repped me to say that it's not walla, but instead should be voila, I already knew that, thanks. I took French in high school long ago,and its one of the first things they teach you along with bonjour,and oui...lmao. But many people don't speak french on the forum, so its okay to say walla.

For a slice of pizza, I get a cast iron frying pan hot, put in a rack (which I made myself out of a coat hanger), put the slice on the rack, and cover it for a few minutes, either off the burner or on low.

For rice, I am almost always also reheating something that I will top the rice with, so I bring that to a boil in the saucepan, then put the leftover rice on top of that, and cover it, leaving it off the burner or on low. The rice will heat through pretty quickly, and remain (mostly) separate from the sauce.

I just rehead pizza in the microwave,tastes good to me!

I got a great idea for reheating rice from women's day or something like that. Put it in a microwave friendly container. wet a paper towel, but don't squeeze it dry. put it over the rice, then put some plastic wrap over that. the moisture from the towel keeps the rice moist (instead of it losing it's moisture in the microwave) and it heats nicely.

I also use that to steam frozen vegetables. Works really well with pretty much anything that gets dried out in the microwave. I actually got the idea from a package of frozen gyoza that used the same method.

rice---in microwave. Add water to it so it will steam as it re-heats. Water will be absorbed an poof up the rice again.


pizza- 3 minutes or so under broiler, add salt when it comes out. I like it a little burnt and crunchy
