We believe in keeping things easy. Simply cook, serve and enjoy.

How to cook our food

Our meals and hot desserts should be cooked from frozen either in a microwave or conventional oven.
Most of our meals take just 8-12 minutes to cook in a microwave, or 35-40 minutes in an oven. Some of our meals are oven cook only, so please check the label of the meal for exact cooking instructions.

Our labels are clear and easy to follow, and with no cardboard sleeves, there’s less waste. The full ingredients are clearly shown on every meal label and any allergens are marked in bold.
We do not advise that you defrost our meals or hot desserts before cooking and the meals are not suitable for reheating once cooked.

Let’s get cooking

There’s no need to defrost our meals or pierce the film lid*. Simply cook, serve and enjoy. All our meals can be quickly cooked in the microwave (unless otherwise stated) or oven and our cold desserts defrost in just a couple of hours.

  1. Remove from your freezer – do not defrost before cooking. Do not pierce or remove the film lid before cooking*
  2. Follow the simple cooking instructions on the label to ensure your food is properly cooked.
  3. Leave to stand for 2 minutes
  4. Carefully remove your meal using oven gloves, peel off the film lid (with our microwave ready meals be careful as the meal will be hot so some steam may come out).
*Unless otherwise stated on the label. Always ensure you read cooking instructions carefully.

There's more than just cooking information on our labels, find out how to read our labels for their useful nutritional information. 


Cold Desserts 

Our cold desserts are a tasty treat you can enjoy whenever you choose.

All of our cold desserts, need to be defrosted in the fridge prior to eating, except desserts such as ice creams which can be enjoyed straight from the freezer. The frozen cold desserts can take 1-5 hours to defrost in the fridge depending on the type of dessert.

After they have been defrosted, they can be kept in the fridge and consumed within 24-48 hours.

Please check the label of each dessert for exact guidelines.
