    1. It is also not advisable to reheat a fried food in the oven because it will just explode inside its container.
      Another is never reheat food wrapped in an aluminum foil or put a left-over in a metal plate to heat it.
      Slightly open the lid in one corner of the microwaveable container so the food will not explode and will be reheated well.
