Now that you know everything about Pampered Chef Rockcrocks up through cooking with them, knowing a couple of things about storing in them is the next step. Storing food in your Pampered Chef Rockcrok is super-easy! Read on for all the details…
First thing’s first. Your Rockcrok is totally refrigerator-safe. If you have leftovers from the meal you made, just put the lid on the pan, and put it in the fridge. When you’re ready to reheat the next day (or whenever…) just take the pan out of the fridge. It can go directly from the refrigerator to the oven, stovetop, or microwave to reheat your food. Easy-peasy.
Besides being totally refrigerator-safe, your Rockcrok is also freezer-safe! Say you make a casserole that you want to save for another day (I know quite a few food-preppers who fall into this category, as well as new moms-to-be…). Just put the lid on, and put it in the freezer! Now, the important thing to know is that you shouldn’t put your frozen Rockcrok directly into the oven, microwave, or stovetop. This could cause thermal shock in the clay, and possibly crack your Rockcrok. To avoid this potential issue, make sure you fully thaw your frozen meals or other dense frozen foods prior to cooking/reheating them in the Rockcrok.
What about storing your Rockcrok when not in use? I generally flip the lid upside down to create a flat-top and then stack a smaller Rockcrok on top of the flat glass. Pampered Chef does not recommend nesting the pieces together. Ceramic-to-ceramic contact might cause chipping or scratching. I personally recommend getting a set or two of pot & pan protectors to not only use in storing your Rockcroks, but all pots and pans, as well as any glass mixing bowls. It just helps keep everything cozy and safe.
