If you have leftover food that you plan on warming up for the next night, do you just put the pot in the fridge, or do you transfer it to a container?


Never. I almost always transfer to glass (very minimal plastic).
If not for my attempts to be a "good Christian" (i.e. someone who follows what Jesus taught and not what the Pauline Epistles taught), I doubt I'd be an orthodox Jew right now. Shemmy

Always transfer. Takes up too much space in the fridge and is usually a #### to clean the longer it sits in a pot.

Soup and cholent we leave in pots. Everything else we tranfer to a plastic dish with a cover that can be thrown into the microwave.
God, grant us the...
Serenity to accept things we cannot change,
Courage to change the things we can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference
Patience for the things that take time
Appreciation for all that we have, and
Tolerance for those with different struggles
Freedom to live beyond the limitations of our past ways, the
Ability to feel your love for us and our love for each other and the
Strength to get up and try again even when we feel it is hopeless.

Same here.

We put pots in the fridge. We usually do it while the pot is still hot too.

Usually pots as we rarely reheat dinners in the microwave.

we would no more transfer to plastic for microwaving than we would transfer to aluminum for the overn :dunce:


The same reason I don't use aluminum foil is the same reason I don't store food in pots.

I heard that it is not good to freeze plastic containers or use them in the microwave cause the plastic expands and contracts, leaking stuff into your food or water. I will put my soup pot that has soup in it back in the fridge as is (thank G-d for my extra fridge downstairs, plenty of room). less stuff to wash that way.

Shalom bayit tip for the men: NEVER tell you're wife you will put the pot in the fridge when it cools down friday night and then forget and let her find it still on the counter shabbos morning

For this very reason, I am never able to fall asleep Friday night until I have personally witnessed every pot replaced in the refrigerator, regardless of spouse (or guest's) reassurances.

She's eating the leftovers, her husband gets fresh food.

Actually in my house it's the opposite, since DH refuses to allow food to be thrown away. I guess if I were a true AC I'd eat the leftovers myself but I can't bring myself to eat leftover cholent. I can barely eat it on Shabbos!

I always leave it in the pot. It's silly to take it out of the pot, put it in a container, only to put it in a pot again when it needs to be reheated.

As I don't really OWN any "containers" (or a microwave), it is usually the pot (tho sometimes a smaller pot)....
