*Since every stove is slightly different, we have given a range of times to reheat our dishes. Try heating the minimum time suggested and then check every few min. until food has reached desired heat.

If your gourmet meal is delivered fresh and you would like it can be frozen if done that day. However perishable food, salads, fruit and bread should be used within that week. Meals can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months from the date of delivery.
