Heating Instructions

Thank you for ordering your catering needs through McCaffrey's. Please enjoy your food prepared by our chefs just for you.

ITEMS COMING IN WHITE TRAY WITH PLASTIC COVERING ARE NOT OVEN SAFE. REMOVE ITEMS AND PLACE IN AN ALUMINUM PAN OR OVEN SAFE DISH.

Remove items from refrigerator and let come to room temperature before reheating. Food items will reheat more evenly if at room temperature. Ovens vary, please use these directions as general guidelines, and check your items often. Reheating in an oven or toaster oven is recommended. Cover items to help in the reheating process and prevent over browning. Suggested reheating times may need to be increased if reheating either multiple dishes simultaneously or large quantities. Bulk items will reheat more evenly if they are in a single layer.

Always check the internal temperature of food with a stemmed thermometer before eating. Reheated food should reach a recommended 165 degrees before consumption unless specifically noted.

Always keep stored food covered and refrigerated at 41 degrees or less.

Microwave reheating is not recommended in most cases for the best quality product. If you do choose to use a microwave oven, follow these guidelines:

  • Never put foil or metallic containers in the microwave.
  • Keep food loosely covered with microwave-safe wrap.
  • Rotate or stir items at least once during the reheating process.

Always use caution when removing containers from oven. For ease and safety, always place black oven safe containers on a cookie sheet before placing in the oven. Do not place black containers directly on oven floor or a heating element. Clear plastic lids or covers should be removed before reheating.

Platters and Displays should be kept refrigerated at 41 degrees or less until ready to serve. Consume within 4 hour after removing from refrigerator.
