Choose hot or frozen

How to store and cook your frozen meals

As well as hot meals we offer a range of frozen meals. If you choose frozen meals they will be delivered frozen. They should be placed in your freezer or freezer compartment in your refrigerator as quickly as possible. The delivery personnel will be happy to do this if you are unable to do this.

Heating instructions

Gas and electric oven

Pre-Heat Oven to 345 F/180 C or Gas Mark4.

For the main course, just heat the meal from frozen. Leave the lid on and place the tray on a baking tray in the middle of a preheated oven for 40-45 minutes.

For desserts, heat the dessert from frozen. Leave the lid on and allow 20-25 minutes of heating time.

If a meal and dessert are to be heated together, the meal can be placed in the oven and after 20 minutes the dessert can be put in with the meal for the remaining time, approximately 20-25 minutes.

Fan assisted ovens

Pre-heat oven to 300F/155C Meal will require 40 minutes cooking, the dessert 20 minutes.

Microwave cooking guide

The following instructions are based upon the use of a 750 Watt microwave with a glass turntable. Heating time should be reduced for higher power, or increased for lower-powered microwave ovens.

For both meals and desserts – simply decant from foil container place on a microwaveable plate and cover with plastic dome and place them in the microwave and follow cooking instructions on the label.

Once cooked, meals and dessert can be eaten straight from the container or if preferred set out onto a serving plate.

We would always recommend gently heating the plate before serving the meal.

Please Note. Heating instructions are meant as a guide only. Always make sure the food is piping hot before eating.

Once a product is defrosted or cooked never reheat or refreeze.

After cooking consume your meal as soon as possible.

Please remember if you need to tell us or ask us anything simply pick up the phone and dial 0845 604 1125 and we will sort out your query.

What our customers say.

My mother came home from the hospital and needed arrangements for hot meals. ICare set this up very quickly, the food was terrific, my mother was very happy with the selection and the helpful drivers. She looks forward to their visit, they are so friendly and it took the pressure off us to be there to prepare her meals.
