We love our Rosti Mepal microwavable nested storage bowls for a lot of reasons—they’re airtight, leak-proof, microwave-friendly, freezer-ready… the list goes on. So we decided to rack our brains and give you a few tips in case you wanted to make the most of them yourself. Read on: Hacks await.
This year, we’ve been changing the way we cook—and that includes the way we work with our freezers. The idea of cooking with frozen veggies or stockpiling leftovers can leave one leery; one bad experience with freezer burn is all it takes.

While you’re microwaving in these bowls, why not do something surprising? Melting chocolate, that most delicate of tasks, is doable in your very own microwave.
