Tips for Best Results with Your RCG! Cooking Bags

To create a healthy and delicious meal with your RCG! cooking bags, we recommend that you follow these 10 helpful cooking tips. While we provide cooking bag instructions with all our bags, these practices will improve your cooking experience:

1. Don’t overload the bag

The amount of food in the bag will affect cook times. Your meal will cook faster with a smaller portion size inside of the bag.

2. Prevent sticking

Anti-stick spray inside the cooking bag can prevent chicken, steak, and other protein sources from sticking.

3. Use a microwave-safe dish or baking sheet

Cooking the bag on one of these will allow for easy handling when your meal is ready.

4. Extend the cook time of frozen foods

You should double the recommended cook time for frozen meals.

5. Keep cooking bags intact

Take care to avoid piercing or puncturing the bag before you cook.

6. Always cook with the clear side of the bag facing up

This helps the food inside to cook evenly, and you won’t have to flip the bag throughout the process.

7. Avoid handling the bag immediately after cooking

Wait at least one minute before you open the bag so the hot steam has a chance to escape.

8. Drain the bag carefully

Should liquid accumulate in the bag during cooking, cut a small hole into the bag to drain before fully cutting open the bag.

9. Use your cooking bags for a variety of foods

The RCG! cooking bags are great for cooking vegetables and lean protein. They can also make a delicious dessert – simply cook sliced strawberries, peaches, or apples in the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes.

10. Try cooking bags for processed foods

The RCG! cooking bags make it easier than ever to cook mixed vegetables, hot dogs, chicken nuggets, and other freezer meals. Check out our recipes to find the perfect meal for you.
