Reheating leftovers not using a microwave

blustery | May 14, 201610:46 AM     53

I have decided to really limit my use of the microwave and would love some ideas of safely heating up leftovers. I have been using a pan on the stove and have read about double boilers and steamers. I also read about a small crockpot, but wondering if heating cooked food slowly is healthy, plus would take too long.

For baked potatoes, rice and other drier foods, heating on top of stove is not effective.

Do any of you use a toaster oven for this? I would have to have a small one to fit in the kitchen.
