    Alternative to microwave for reheating food

    Primal Fuel
    I'm trying to stop using my microwave. Can anyone recommend a good alternative to quickly reheat leftovers other than using the over? I was looking into getting a NuWave, are these a good alternative?

    Thanks

    I use my toaster oven frequently for re-heating left-overs. It does take longer than a microwave, but less time than the oven.

    I heat most things in my toaster oven and use the stovetop for things like soups and stir-fries. Our microwave bit the dust last year, and after I shanghi'ed the toaster oven from my parents' house I haven't really missed having a microwave.

    This guy named Dave Asprey has a lot of good stuff on his site: The Bulletproof Executive. He suggests using a Flavorwave oven, which you can find here:

    He even has a podcast where he's talked about this before, you should check it out

    Depends on the meal, but I usually use a frying pan to reheat (in more fat).

    Just curious, you know that there's nothing unhealthy about using a microwave, right?

    +1 for reheating soups in a pot on the stove. They get hotter all the way through which adds to the deliciousness; especially if there's a lot of animal fat in the soup.

    Poke it quickly, with a stick.

    I use a pot or pan on the stove or a steamer.

    I use a cast iron pan and some more fat to reheat meats(I sometimes cover with a cast iron lid. I also use the stovetop to reheat stews or braises in a cast iron coquet. Cast iron and a high output gas stove can put some microwaves to shame on the even heat department.

    I either steam or fry to reheat anything(no microwave).

    stove top when appropriate, toaster oven for everything else. We went 7 years without a microwave and just got one back. I kind of like them again.
