What is the best way to enjoy Edible Independence dinners?
There’s a number of easy ways. The meals are already completely cooked, so all they need is heating and eating.
For best results we recommend you remove the frozen dinner from your freezer several hours before use and allow it to thaw in refrigerator, then transfer the dinner to heating pan and heat in conventional oven till its warm enough all through it for total enjoyment.
Microwave ovens also work well, but a microwave oven heats dinners at different rates if meals are thawed or frozen. The best results from using a microwave are easier to attain when our dinners are thawed before heating, since this requires less time for the oven to evenly heat the various dinner ingredients.
Will health insurance pay for the meals?
Yes, some health insurance companies will pay for the meals under New York’s MLTC program.
Whether Meal is Thawed or Frozen–slice small hole in plastic wrap and set meal in microwave.
For Thawed Meals-Set oven to Medium or High and set time for 2-4 minutes, depending on microwave strength. Remove meal from oven and use scissors to cut seam of covering open and pull tray free. Test for temperature. You can use a food thermometer or just carefully feel meal. If not ready, slide dinner back into wrapping and heat till desired warmth is attained.
When food is well heated, transfer meal to a plate for best flavor, to allow for mixing of juices meats or sauces for vegetables and other foods.
If Meal is Frozen- follow the above procedure, but allow 5-10 minutes for heating, depending on microwave strength. Remove meal and test as above.

No. EI delivers on a weekly basis to anyone who needs our meals, call us and we deliver. Discounts are available for customers who buy 4 weeks at a time, but that is NOT required.
