The dry ice comes in a specially designed plastic packaging that is easy to handle, and contains handling instructions and warning labels. All of meals are very simple to prepare. Each is fully cooked (except steaks) and only need to be reheated in a conventional oven for approximately 20 - 30 minutes. Each meal selection will come with easy to follow cooking instructions.   back to top
