Use The Two-Bowl Method To Reheat Food With Less Mess

In honour of Food Week, we turn to Lifehacker reader pojken’s tried-and-true two-bowl reheating method. It’s something many of you probably already do, but it’s a nice trick for cleaner cooking.

When heating up food in a shallow bowl, I use another similar bowl flipped upside down on top. This traps in the heat and avoids splatter. I use a plate on top for deep bowls.

This is especially helpful for foods that require a bit of steaming — reheating rice, veggies, etc. I just sprinkle water on it and then cover it.

Reuse the top bowl or plate for serving up a portion or for other foods.
