How To Reheat Croissant: A Guide To Reheating

Croissants are a delicious breakfast item that is often enjoyed in the morning.

If you are anything like us, you might have eaten one a little too early and then realized it would be lunchtime before you could eat them again. Don’t worry!

Reheat croissant is pretty easy, and we’ll show you how to do it and the best methods for reheating.

Is It Okay To Reheat Croissants?

Yes! Yes, it is! Just make sure that before heating them up, place your croissant on a plate or cooling rack, so they don’t stick or become soggy when they get hot.

How To Reheat Croissant?

There are three methods for reheating croissants: oven, microwave, and stovetop. Each of these methods works great; depending on your situation, you can choose the most convenient.

Some are better than others depending on how hot your croissant is, how much time you have, etc. We’ll start with the most common method first.

1. Oven Reheating

Preheat your oven at the lowest temperature setting to about 300 °F (149 °C) or just slightly above room temperature (unless your recipe says 300 °F).

Place the croissant on a plate or cooling rack. The croissants will puff up and then deflate as your oven cooks them. This cycle of puff and deflate is the whole point of reheating your croissant!

When it’s cooked, enjoy!

2. Microwave Reheating

Microwave for about 2 minutes at full power (and make sure the dial is set on High).

Afterward, microwave for another 60 seconds at half power and repeat as before until you have achieved the desired crispness of your desired level of doneness.

3. Stovetop Reheating

Bring to a boil a pot containing water and a pinch of salt. Place the croissant in the water for about 15 to 20 seconds, flip it over, and let it cook for another 15 to 20 seconds. Again, repeat until desired crispness is reached.

This process takes a little longer, but it’s still fast and easy!


As you can see, reheating your croissants is not at all hard to do. If you finish them early in the morning or are just looking for a less healthy way of eating your croissants, try one of these methods and see how they work for you!

Our favorite method is the oven one because we like our breakfast foods crispy rather than soggy.
