Frequently Asked Questions
No! Instead of microwaving, you can remove the meals from their packaging and heat them on the stove, or in an oven-safe container. You can also boil a large pot of water, remove the meal label, and put the entire vacuum-sealed meal in the water for a couple minutes to heat. Use tongs to remove the meal, and always remember to watch for steam!

Heat meals in the microwave for 3-5 minutes (watch the packaging vent if you want, its pretty neat), let cool for 1 minute (we know it’s hard to wait), and enjoy! Watch out for steam when removing from the microwave.
You can also use the defrost cycle in the microwave and then heat your meal 2-2.5 minutes. Allow the meal to cool in the microwave for at least one minute and watch for steam!
Many microwaves have a “frozen meal” option that work well for EatFlavorly meals. Allow the meal to cool in the microwave for at least one minute and watch for steam!
You can also boil water in a pot large enough to fit one meal package and let the packaging (with the vacuum-seal still intact) sit in the water for around 5 minutes. Use tongs to remove the meal and let cool for at least one minute.
The meals are frozen immediately after cooking to ensure freshness. Orders are packed with dry ice in a compostable, insulated liner to ensure they arrive frozen. Be sure to freeze or refrigerate as soon as you open the box.
Unfortunately we do not ship to PO Boxes.
We have worked with our delivery partners to make sure your order arrives to your door in 1 to 2 days, depending on which state you ship to. We’ve tested our packaging to keep meals frozen up to 60 hours – 48 for shipping and 12 hours at your doorstep.
