TLC Meals, quick and easy to prepare
- Dinners are prepared so you can heat and serve in approximately 6 minutes in a microwave (based on 800w power) or 30 minutes in a conventional oven,preheated to 180°C
- All meals are snap frozen with heating instructions included.They keep in the freezer for up to 12 months
- Straight from the freezer to the microwave or oven without piercing holes in the lid - no need to defrost
Meals can be heated in either a microwave or oven but as appliances can vary, please use these times as an approximate guide only.
Remove meal from freezer and place in microwave or middle shelf of convection oven. For Oven heating - pre heat to 180°C. Fan forced ovens may need to be reduced to 170°C. No need to lift or pierce the lid.
After heating, but before removing the lid, feel the bottom of the meal container - it should feel hot all the way across. If you feel some cold spots, microwave for another 30 to 60 seconds, then check again. For oven heating, return the container to the oven for another 5 to 10 minutes then check again. Some meals may take slightly longer to heat through if they are denser (such as Beef Lasagne).
After heating, if you have any difficulty removing the meal lid, use the point of a knife to pierce and cut around the inside edge of the lid.
Meal containers are BPA free and recyclable.
