There are times when you reheat a food in microwave and it doesn't come as tasty as the first time around. Indeed, there are candidates of food that are better reheated with oven or stove than in your microwave.

Fried chicken

Don't let your KFC leftovers become soggy. Instead of using your microwave, put the fried chicken on a pan and use foils to cover the surface. Preheat your oven in 350 degrees Fahrenheit and put the dish inside for about 10 minutes before removing the foil and add another 10.  The result? Crispy!


Often times, the casseroles get unforgivably dried due to improper reheating process. The next you heat this dish, splash water on its surface and cover it with foil or wax paper before reheating in the oven at 325 degrees. Don't forget to poke the cover to make some holes and let the steam escape.


You can't expect your pasta to be as tasty as it's used to when you microwave it. It gets too dried up. Reheating spaghetti Aglio E Olio takes a little added oil and your stove top. For creamy tomato-based pasta, you can use saucepan with a little added water to avoid thickened out.


Make thin slices and place them on sauté pan. Using olive oil, reheat the steak until it becomes brownish.  


Pizza should be reheated on skillet to retain its moist. Bon Appetit tells us how everyone has been doing it all wrong. To bring pizza to live on the next day, it's best to heat it on the stove and cover it with foil. 5 minutes is enough to make the crust crisps and the Mozzarella melts.

French fries

The fries texture easily change after a day. For the best result, reheat the fries on a sauté pan with oil and drain them using paper towel before sprinkling with salt.
