  • Do I need to put the bag on a plate in the microwave?

    Just follow the cooking instructions on the paper pouch, making sure to check the microwave wattage for the best cooking. All our tests are conducted using an 1100 watt microwave oven.

    In a conventional oven, the steam pouch needs to be positioned on a tray rather than placed directly on an oven rack.

Retail Product Packaging

  • Can the steam pouch be recycled?

    Some community recycling programs allow the entire steam pouch to be recycled while others do not, so consumers should check with their local recycling program for options.

  • What is the (steam pouch) bag made from?

    Our paper steam pouch is very similar to a conventional roasting pouch: it uses unbleached paper sandwiched to a lining of BPA-free Mylar film that is specially designed to gently steam each entrée, locking in flavor and aroma.

  • Is your packaging recyclable?

    Yes. Our outer box is made from 100% recycled paperboard with 75% post-consumer waste; the steam pouch contains unbleached paper made from 20% pre-consumer waste and uses soy or waterless inks.
